Stayed here when on island for a wedding. The hotel was clean and was in a good location. It is great if u want to spend less money and still stay in a descent place close to town. It is up a small hill, so u may get a nice view. Drawbacks - room was small and lots of stairs... More

Overlooking the harbor, including breakfast, with a waterfront terrace, we loved our spacious room and everything about this place. Can't wait to get back. This is near the center of Avalon, so it is easy to get everywhere from here

We enjoyed the hotel but there is NO elevator. No pool either. The breakfast is nice. I don't understand why there is a 100 dollar breakage fee. We didn't break anything. Nice but we'll probably stay somewhere else when we go to Catalina again. The bill was a few pennies short of 700.00 for just 2 nights.

Great location, very clean and well maintained. Best aspect is the Staff - particularly the Front Desk team - friendly, knowledgeable, helpful - a delight to interact with and they made the stay even better. Room was great - big, well maintained, GREAT view! King mattress a little soft for our liking, but didn't detract from the overall experience. Be... More

Nice place to stay. I rate hotels in part by there pillows and this one had great pillows. Only one block that was up hill when walking to the hotel. Many cute areas around the hotel to sit outside and enjoy the amazing weather on the island.

We stayed here for two nights and had no complaints. Our room had two queen size beds, and although the room wasn't very large, it was big enough...after all, we came to Catalina to see and do things, not to sit in the room. The bathroom had a well working toilet and shower, and there was a complimentary continental breakfast... More

We stayed here on the 4th of July. The room was clean and nice and the staff was helpful and pleasant. This is a very basic hotel, I'm not sure they have room service or anything like. Just a cute little spot for a reasonable rate. It's quiet overall besides the sounds of the wooden beds creaking as you and... More

Hotel is very charming and very quiet. The pillows were not very comfortable though and the complimentary toiletries were minimal. I thought it was super cool to get actual keys. The only weird thing that is noteworthy is the layout of the furniture as seen on the photos and there was an exposed pipe near the sink.

We had a very comfortable stay at Casa Mariquita Hotel. Seriously the best beds we've slept on besides at home!! Very pretty grounds. Continental breakfast included, several nice places to sit throughout the property, not your typical hotel. It's very lush and well taken care of. See photo. Lots of stairs, so it is definitely not wheelchair accessible (except for... More

The lady who assisted us at check in is AMAZING. She is very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is only a few steps from the beach without the noise of the busy boardwalk. Will definitely stay here again.
