Our family stayed two nights. Had a great stay at the Inn and on Catalina. Would recommend the Inn for families. You can't beat the location. It's in the heart of Avalon, right by a grocery store, the beach, golf cart rentals, restaurants etc. The staff was very helpful and kind. My daughter loved this hotel!

Stayed at Catalina Island Inn for a relaxing two night stay of doing nothing but lounging, eating and drinking. We booked a king room with private patio in the newer wing. Our room was great. Nicely furnished, with a fireplace and it was spotless. Housekeeping did an amazing job. The people at the front desk are so nice and helpful.... More

The hotel is on the smaller side, but still functional. There are no elevators and not all rooms have air conditioning. (Make sure to get the room that does especially in the summer.) They offer free continental breakfast in the lobby 8am-10am and have fruit throughout the floors of the hotel. If you're feigning for something else Vons is conveniently... More

Great little hotel, clean with friendly service (front desk and maid service). From the initial reservation to check out it was a good experience. The location is convenient to Vons and other places (everything is close in Catalina anyway). I would suggest you look closely at the size of the rooms and configuration before you choose. Since it is a... More

Thanks for your review of the Catalina Island Inn. Everything on Catalina is small and unique. We do not have an elevator but are happy to assist guests with getting their luggage to the upper floors. Our first floor rooms and suites are the most spacious with walk in tile showers and larger floor plans. After Labor Day all rooms... More

My boyfriend and I went here for my birthday/anniversary getaway. We stayed here for 2 nights and we enjoyed it. We got the king with fireplace and patio and it was just relaxing. It is also convenient for us that Vons is just right next door. I would recommend this hotel!

We had no plans at all to visit Catalina Island but as there was a severe heat warning in Palm Springs we changed our plans and booked a night at the Inn. It was a lovely experience and the island and inn are very relaxing (once the cruise ships depart!) The hotel itself is tasteful and centrally located. Ideally we... More

Dear Cheshire Lady--- Thank you for choosing Catalina Island Inn. The island is cooler than other parts of southern California. It’s such fun to get away to Avalon and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay.

My partner really enjoyed his stay here for his thirtieth birthday. They were attentive and helpful. The private balcony was great for watching the ocean and enjoying conversation. The bed was extremely comfortable. I would go back there for sure.

We stayed here one night on our stay in Avalon. The room was not ready when we arrived in the morning, but they were happy for us to leave our bags with them.

Thanks for your review of the Catalina Island Inn. Our continental breakfast has instant oatmeal, mini muffins and scones, which most guests enjoy. It’s a “grab and go” set up[ with disposable plates or trays to take something back to the room or our second floor guest balcony. There are several fine restaurants in the vicinity for heartier fare. We... More
