Very Quiet, quaint little hotel right on the beach/boardwalk. In walking distance of everything. Room and lobby were very clean and guest services friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay again and highly recommend it.
So this is the first time I have ever been to Catalina. Thought the trip would be fun. So far the hotel is nice right across from the beach and near a lot of shops and restaurants. Too bad it’s covid 19 rules do to being in La county so a lot of mask wearing. I don’t know if I will be back to this island but I would recommend this hotel. It’s a little old but the area it’s in is really good. I figure most hotels in Catalina are not five star but this hotel is nice and clean. Room smelled very nice when I got here. Only thing the AC in room 101 faces an area that’s storing stuff so I didn’t use it because it brought a smell of pee. I would stay here again if I came back to the island but don’t think that’s going to happen.
This hotel gets 5 stars for its location - hands down. It's one of the oldest hotels on the island. When you walk into the dated rooms you feel like you are at a discounted motel. The summer prices are high especially for the weekend and this hotel sells out. The bed is comfortable and the air conditioner works really well. The bathroom has a skylight so you get plenty of light with flicking the switch.
Right across the street from the beach and pier, easy flat walk from the ferry port area. We stayed just one night (Wed 8th Jan 2020) in a Courtyard view room. Reception is up a flight of stairs and through the main Courtyard, with a lower level past reception where our room was located. The TLC (Tender Loving Care) relates to the rather old feel the room had and the strange box wood draws our TV sat on. It is quaint though and we liked the simple, relaxed, seaside vibe the room gave off. Toilet and show worked fine, bed comfortable, linen and towels crisp and clean. Lean breakfast of tea/coffee/orange juice; pastries on a help yourself table by reception. Cost was fine for Catalina Island and of course any refurbishment would most likely means a price hike. Would we stay there again; yes!…
Wonderful view of ocean. Is right across the street. Clean and quiet. Great free breakfast right outside our room. Activities for various trips are within walking distance, as are many fine retaurants.
