Our trip to Catalina was to attend my cousins wedding. We arrived early and the staff arranged a temp room so we could get ready. Excellent service !

Room Tip: Avoid rooms on the west side...noisey. Two queen room was nice.

Good:
-Friendly, genuine staff
-Best value on the island
-Simple, quaint, historical hotel
-Excellent shower heads
-Perfect, central location
-Attached Chinese restaurant is really tasty
-Free baggage holding
-70+ channels on TV
-Ceiling fan

Bad:
-Rock hard beds uncomfortable
-no elevator (not an issue for us, but maybe for some)
-No heat or AC in econo rooms (fine in September, but might be an issue in other months)

Overall:
A positive experience on our little trip. We don't have a lot of cash, so this hotel is perfect. Even though it's cheap, it is still clean and cozy. We would totally stay here again.

This is a nice hotel. Nothing fancy but in the morning, provides some of the best coffee on the island.

No elevator but not an issue for us and I knew that before I booked.

Rooms were clean and comfortable.

Bring earplugs or something to dull the noise of the people on the island who like to drink and make a lot of noise until the early hours of the morning.

I just got home from Catalina Island and even though my stay wasn't very long, this Hotel experience made me want to stay much longer. I Loved the room we were in! The front desk people were very friendly. When we first showed up at the Hotel we were given a room at a great price but it had a very small bathroom with a shower. So my Husband asked if they had a room with a bath tub because I liked to soak in a tub due to a strain in my back. Anyway, they ended up putting us in a much nicer room with a bigger bathroom. The staff were WONDERFUL! I've been to the Island many times and I know exactly where I want to stay the next time I'm there. Thank you!

Room Tip: Do a walk-in rather then online booking during the off season, you can get a better rate.
