This was such a cute little place at the end of the strip to relax. Rooms are comfortable and quiet, good value for the money. The staff was very helpful and surprised me by leaving a bottle of chilled champagne in our room to celebrate my birthday. Very helpful that you can leave your bags after checkout and freshen up in their clean well stocked restroom.

This is a great place. Clean, friendly, small, yet big enough. Accompanying Italian restaraunt made and outstanding gnocchi with Gorgonzola bolognese. Simply outstanding. Location is very good, both on and off the beaten path at the end of the strip leading to the casino area. Usual Catalina noise level. We can absolutely recommend and will return.

Staff was wonderful, every single one of them! Great location on the end of the main strip, right across from the beach. Roof deck with killer view for impromptu happy hours (BYOB - they even lent us wine glasses!). They also loan beach towels and chairs. You can store your luggage after check out and they have a bathroom you can use too. Pretty courtyard with rooms surrounding. Downstairs is cute restaurant with small outdoor eating area specializing in Italian food. Rooms were reasonably priced. I would DEFINITELY recommend this place!

Good place to stay when in Avalon. Centrally located and within walking distance of everything in town. Fronts on the beach. Great roof deck where you can watch the world go by. Rooms are small, but very confortable. We've been staying there for years.

Room Tip: Get a suite if you need want a larger room, but you'll pay for it.
