Bottom line I was looking for the cheapest hotel in Catalina because the Catalina Flyer is so expensive and we'd still like to eat! We were in town for the Avalon 50 miler and the Hermosa was perfectly located around the corner from the start. It is walking distance from everything in Catalina. The room was very small, but that doesn't bother me as we were not there to stay in the room but just to sleep. The full kitchen was quaint and I was pleasantly surprised by the upgrade of heat (I had heard some of the rooms didn't have any previously). I plan to run the Avalon 50 miler again and will be staying at the Hermosa every time....as long as they stay so reasonably priced, that is.
- 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
