As this was our first over night experience on the Catalina Island, we decided to check out reviews of other travelers to get a feel for the places on the island. often time, when we had done internet searches, we deduced our choice to the rated review, "The Stars", and peoples opinion on Trip Advisor. Unfortunatley there is no 6th star to give this hotel, our stay was Outstanding, and though all the fancy 5 dimamond have AAA ratings schemes to produce what they consider "a Premium stay" 3 Diamonds does not adequately describe the overall experience here.
I felt that all the negitive reviews didn't give the Glenmore Plaza Hotel the credit it deserves, and are all greatly exaggerated.
The Hotel and the rooms were Victorian in style, the beds and bedding were warm, and clean. It was convenient to have a fridge in our room, as the 5 diamond Ritz did not have one. Internet access was accessible in most places in the hotel. Our room had a dead bolt, why I don't know, but I felt more than completely safe in our room, as did my spouse. All eateries were so very convenient! Mostly less than a 3 minute walk! Hotel Staff was Excellent! Very genuine, helpful, and pleasant!
Often times when your at other 5 diamond hotels you get the feeling that the staff is putting on a face for you, here your met with the local community, that are more than happy in sharing their small beach community and we felt graciously accommodated!
Prices weren't bad to boot!
Also Jack the front desk agent was very Excellent! We Will be coming back!
