My husband and dive buddies did a weekend dive trip in Catalina this February and ended up staying at Hermosa. The staff was friendly and accomodation and even gave one of our last minute friends a discounted price when we thought to go with us (last minute). My husband and I got the top floor corner room with a beautiful view of the ocean. It's clean and close to the Avalon Underwater Park. There's an area on the first floor where you can store your dive bags/scuba gear so lugging it to your room is not necessary.
Only downside: you share a bathroom with the next room. Not good when you want to take your sweet time in the shower...or the toilet.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hermosa is Catalina’s friendly, quaint, economy hotel located in the heart of Avalon half block from the beach and a short, flat walk from the boat landing. The Historic Hermosa Hotel has been serving guests of the island as far back as 1896 and, as was the style then, our rooms are small and simple. No thrills or frills- ... more less
