My girlfriend and I rented one of the cruise ship rooms for a short (3-night) stay and we were very pleased. Yes, the room was the size of one on a cruise ship. Yes, the bathroom was small. But we kind of figured it would be. The place is clean, friendly, and very close to everything in town. Breakfast was... More

Thanks for sharing about our very efficient Cruise Ship Twin room at the Catalina Island Inn. Our downtown area in Avalon is only one square mile (smaller than the parking lot at Dodger Stadium) so we know how to give you what you need for a comfortable stay and to be "on your way" to adventure.

My husband and I stayed here for a belated honeymoon, and we didn't want to leave! The room was so cozy. The bed was really comfortable - so much that it was hard to leave, but I couldn't resist spending as much time as I could exploring the island. The hotel was so centrally located that we walked everywhere! There... More

Thanks for your kind comments about Catalina Island Inn. We love sharing our island paradise with our guests! Yes, it is a dilemma to between choose in-room comfort or outdoor adventures and activities. We hope you had enough of both! Congratulations on your marriage and may the "honeymoon" continue! We hope you'll plan an anniversary return trip to Catalina! -Jenn More

I stayed for three nights in Room 308. It is advertised as a nonview room, but just over the rooftops of the Von's and the next building is a view of the water, great for seeing the sunrise. You cannot beat the hotel for convenience. It is within walking distance of everything on the island. Yes, the shower is small,... More

Thanks for your review of the Catalina Island Inn. We are grateful to have you acknowledge our staff who work diligently to keep every part of the hotel in excellent condition even with summer's sand and sometimes soggy situations. Our continental breakfast with Danish pastries, oatmeal and fruit is an option which most of our guests enjoy. If "sweets" aren't... More

The hotel is kept up nicely. Just a few things to note. One, on their website we were given the impression that the rooms had hardwood floors. The (very small) queen room we stayed in did not - it had a basic carpet. Two, the doors have very poor locks on them and we could not lock the deadbolt lock... More

Just a lovely place to stay! Gorgeous interior, friendly and helpful staff, free wireless, on-site massage (tho we didn't use it), great location. We got a partial ocean view, so could see a sliver of the ocean over the rooftops which was nice. Room small but cozy, arranged supremely functional. Only small negative was that we could hear the Vons... More

We stayed on the first floor in a newly renovated King room. The price was $350 per night. The room was very clean and well decorated, including a gas-burning fireplace. There was a private patio with awning which we took advantage of for eating our breakfast. Since our room was at the back end of the hotel, it was very... More

This hotel was a good compromise between comfortable amenities (except conditioner - ladies with long thick hair - bring your own!). I guess the down side was that the partial view was a view of the Hotel Metropole and the room of the Vons market. If you looked to the very right, you had a view of the city and... More

Stayed here in July 2013 for a wedding on the Island. Great value on the rooms. Rooms were small, but adequate and nice decor. The second floor balcony was a great place to have some champagne and snacks after the wedding ceremony. Easy check-in and check-out. Room in the lobby and hallway to leave bags after check-out, but before departure... More
