We stayed two nights at the Hermosa Cottages - a great experience. The cottages are old - after all, the hotel has been around about a hundred years so they are not what you would expect in a new hotel. That said, actually the rooms are probably comparable to some of the national park housing and their charm is the same. We paid more at Grand Canyon Bright Angel cabins so we thought the price was good. Location, location, location and Hermosa is clean - two of my main considerations. We are active seniors and liked not having to do a lot of climbing to get to our room. Convenient to everything in Avalon. We had a kitchen and picked up breakfast cereal at the Von grocery two doors down. Avalon was a little cold for swimming for us but we enjoyed strolling the streets and just relaxing. There are lots of places to eat or snack. We did the golf cart tour and highly recommend that as well. The vendor nearest the ferry landing offers an extra hour for the price of two and prorates if you return the cart earlier than two hours. My husband would love to go back for scuba diving and we would certainly stay there again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hermosa Hotel keeps it simple for you… clean rooms at low prices and DOG FRIENDLY! Our friendly, active staff enjoys all the island has to offer and we will get all you adventure-seekers dialed in with our “locals scoop” to make sure you have the most fun possible during your island visit! We are preferred amongst scuba divers, with free dive lockers & dive carts available. We are Catalina Island’s pet-friendly, economy hotel located in the heart of Avalon, just a short 10-15 minute walk from the boat landing. The Historic Hermosa has been serving guests of the island since 1896 and our rooms are still small and simple. No fancy amenities, but most of our rooms now have air conditioning and heating. We have lots of character, as part of the charm of our 100+ year-old building is its “Catalina Funkiness.” ... more less
