My husband and I went there for the Catalina Triathlon...our first time. You have to fork out the extra dollars and get a suite. You should not stay if you want one of the cheaper rooms. The suites are worth the extra $50. We actually tried 3 in four days! The staff was friendly even when we were picky. We sat on the sun deck and outside our room and read while soaking up the rays, the ocean breeze, and glistening ocean. We are going back this year!
