I visited Catalina for the first time in January 2013 to run the Avalon 50 miler. I needed a place to stay for 2 nights that was close to the race start, not too expensive and close to everything in Avalon. The Hermosa worked perfectly for me. The service at this hotel rivaled any I've experienced at any hotel including 5 stars. The room was clean and they provided oh so many towels. I didn't have to ask for more. The last time I stayed at a nicer hotel there were two towels. This one had like six. The vons market was two doors down and the race start was two blocks away. The room was clean with no frills but it suited my purpose. The heating unit worked extremely well. The only issue was that it was on a timer and that seemed to be a bit of a nuisance. The Bathroom was clean and newly remodeled. The only other issue was the door. There was no chain and no dead bolt. I felt like the lock on the door could have been a bit more secure but I wasn't really worried about it. Great traditional old place for a great price. I paid 99 per night when most places in Avalon wanted twice that. I was very happy with my stay and the hermosa worked well for me.
