“A Wonderful stay at the Old Turner Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2009

My husband and I visited Catalina Island for the first time and our stay at the Old Turner Inn was a joy to say the least. We felt so at home and my husband just loved the family atmosphere. Jean and Bill had great stories from the past that we really enjoyed hearing about. Gina was a great hostess. We will never forget our visit with them. We hope to visit and stay with them again soon.

This was our first trip out to the island. We had no idea what we wanted to do or where we wanted to go. The gals at The Old Turner Inn made us feel right at home and gave us many excellent recommendations for fun things to do on the island. The Inn was wonderful. The rooms were clean, comfortable and had lots of character. Breakfast was excellent, I have tried to duplicate their breakfast selections and have failed miserably! It was within walking distance to everything we wanted to do. The gals at the Inn really helped to make this trip incredible. I can't wait to come back to the island and stay at The Old Turner Inn again.

the Old Turner Inn provides a comfortable homelike atmosphere and is right in the heart of Avalon so that it is easy to walk around the town. The breakfasts are delicious and have something for every taste. the afternoon appetizers and wine were a great time for conversation and comraderie. The bed was very comfortable and the room spacious. There is public internet available which is a plus for me. It would be nice to have a little table and chair in the room so I could run my laptop more comfortably. The hospitality is wonderful. They did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable yet were not intrusive.

We stayed at the Old Turner Inn for 1 night in the King Suite. The room was immaculate with a wood fireplace and a very comfortable bed. The attached sun room was a real treat. We started our morning off with a cup of coffee while basking in the morning sun. The coctail hour by the fire was very relaxing and the breakfast was wonderful. Kathleen was very gracious and took care of our every whim!. Next time we will be sure to stay for a 2nd night!

We just returned from our first visit to Catalina Island and we will definately be back. The Old Turner Inn was a wonderful find. Innkeepers Crista & Kathleen were very friendly and helpful. Great breakfast each morning and CA wine and very good light hors d'oeuvres at cocktail hour. What a treat.

Old Turner Inn is a charming inn with a great location. The rooms are clean. The hostess is very friendly and accommodating. The afternoon snacks are good and breakfast is delicious. We have stayed here several times and recommend it for a nice get away.

Great location, friendly hostess, good breakfast, nice room and bath. Did not feel like we had any privacy though, as you could easily hear through the walls. And the hostess' shoes woke me up by 7am because she was walking back and forth just under our room all morning long. It sounded like wood shoes on a wood floor. We chose to spend the next night somewhere else even though we had already paid to stay there. She did offer to refund us the second night.

  • Liked — Clean, good location, friendly host
  • Disliked — No privacy-could hear conversation of the next room. Could NOT sleep in due to noisy shoes just under us- back and forth ALL morning.
