“Nice Hotel but TERRIBLE noise issues”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

We should have taken the first clue when we noticed earplugs and a sound machine on the table next to the bed. As it turns out the hotel is across the street from a nightclub and if you want to sleep prior to 1am good luck. Also trash pickup was at 7:45 each morning. Nice accommodations but horrible rest. Hotel should also serve something besides Gallo jug wine for their cocktail hour.

Stayed October 2013, traveled as a couple

There is not one bad thing I can say about our stay here. Everything was so perfect! The location could not have been better, right in the middle if it all. We stayed in the Santa Catalina room, great room with a spectacular view. The little details were wonderful too! It was raining the first night we were there so we picked a couple movies from their up to date collection, turned our fireplace on and enjoyed the movie along with the complimentary bottle of champagne left in our room, because they new it was my husbands birthday! Another wonderful touch was the complimentary, in room breakfast that was so delicious! One more thing too add. Turn down service with chocolates in your room every evening.
No doubt my husband and I will be staying here for every future trip to Catalina!

This property will exceed your expectations. From great views to breakfast in your suite, you can't go wrong, Quiet, clean and beautifully decorated. Amenities galore in every suite. A quick walk from the ferry with restaurants and tours right out the door.
Enjoy the wine, chees and snacks at happy hour!

Room Tip: Go to Catalina for your birthday; almost every business will give you a freebie or a great discount...

This hotel is lovely, quaint and exceptional. We were given a complimentary upgrade to their corner room with a view of the ocean. It was clean, cool and comfortable. There are only 6 rooms in the hotel, with a nice lounge area where they have evening wine and appetizers and fresh coffee in the morning. In room breakfast is served at the time of your choosing, brought to you in a basket and set up by the staff. At night we slept with the windows open and were rocked to sleep by the sound of the waves. I have already made my reservation for next year! Thanks SHI for a wonderful stay in Catalina.

A wonderful inn overlooking the harbor at Avalon. Very cozy bedding and decor. Morning breakfast, delivered to your room, consists of homemade breads and rolls. Extremely nice and helpful staff. We had a room that overlooked the main street and pier. Sat by the window in the morning eating breakfast watching the cruise ship unload passengers. Quite a fun place to be. Plenty of restaurants nearby, all within easy walking. We were there diving so staff had to put up with are diving gear spread out all over but still had plenty of room.

We stayed in the Santa Catalina Room, which overlooks the Avalon Harbor. The room is quaint, clean and cozy. We were greeted by Juan, who helped us with our luggage and checked us in. When we entered the room, the view was breathtaking. On the table was a bouquet of flowers, two complimentary bottles of water and a personal note thanking us for our patronage. They gave us an envelope with the free Wi-Fi information as well as other amenities and services offered by the Inn. There is a very nice wine and hors d'oeuvres get-together from 5-6 pm every evening. The staff were very helpful and professional. It was nice to be atop a drugstore, knowing if we forgot anything from home, it wasn't far away to get what we needed. The continental breakfast was brought to our room in the morning in a wicker basket and was delicious. Coffee was available early in the morning in the same room we had wine the evening before. Would like to make this Inn and our particular room our "traditional" location for whenever we come to Avalon in the future. The convenience of them holding our luggage after checkout is also a big plus. They printed out our boarding passes for our plane out of Long Beach, and were a big help in answering all of our questions about tours and restaurants and learning about local lore. Definitely recommend this Inn to anyone who wants a great place to stay on Avalon. Again, THE VIEW...is breathtaking!

Room Tip: The Santa Catalina Room has the best view of the ocean and harbor. Were there during the Film Fest...

If you are looking for the perfect place to stay on a romantic getaway look no further! The staff was awesome (willing to help w/ anything), rooms very clean, and the location is perfect (centrally located). The little extra touches like fresh flowers and a fireplace in your room, breakfast in bed (granola, fresh fruit, and warm bread loaf), wine and h'orderve hour (5-6pm) every evening, and hot tea anytime made me feel like I was being pampered and I was also getting some bang for my buck. I couldn't decide which room I preferred, so I stayed in two. The Santa Barbara room had a slightly better view of the ocean/harbor than the Anacapa, but the Anacapa was definitely more spacious. Both rooms were right out of a romance novel equipped with Jacuzzi tubs, windows that opened with a view of the ocean/harbor, large HD TVs, a little breakfast table and chairs, and a fireplace. If we ever make it back to Catalina we will stay here again, but I will spring for one of the suites which both have a full ocean view.
