3 Double Standard Rooms
The Catalina is actually 3 properties side by side. We stayed and the main one (centre)
We booked through Hotwire ($79 over Xmas!) and I was really worried when I then read the reviews on TripAdvisor. Especially since I was taking my In-Laws with us.
Yes, it is very loud at night on weekends (and sometimes during the week) if you are near the lobby (our room was the CLOSEST one to the lobby - we had brought earplugs - no problem)
No, there were no bedbugs in any of the three rooms we had as a group. (I have a feeling people mistakenly think that sand flea bites are bedbug bites) Rooms were quite clean and modern. Bathrooms are small and ok, but not gross or anything. There is no door on the shower.
It is a hotel for young people, but I thought the service was fine and the pool was nice (ground floor - didn't see the rooftop one next door)
Valet was a bit slow and $26. Also they chaged an additional $15/night fee for Hotwire which I was a bit pissed about.
