This is the first time me and my wife have been to this hotel and Catalina Island. I have heard both positive and negative comments about all the hotels on Catalina and was in a fix as to which hotel to book. This is the only hotel that had a higher number of positive comments and is right by the beach..So I booked the room there for the memorial day long weekend.
We had a warm welcome by one of the lady at the front desk who checked us in. The room was a lil small and even the bathroom was not so spacious. No telephone (who needs them when u r on a vacation! :) ). We could rent free videos, free beach towels, and even after we checked out, we could use one of the guest showers. They had free continental breakfast also!
We are newly married and really enjoyed our stay! Kinda like our honeymoon! :)
