Catalina is an older motel but it is clean and I was surprised at how big the room was, which included a separate kitchen. I chose Catalina because they are pet friendly and right across the road from the beach...Beach Access #77...30 second walk. Parking was great, right outside the back door of our room..front door of room opens up on the pool area..nice 2- 8ft deep pool and grass courtyard. Husband and wife owners were really nice down home couple and really made us feel welcome and I would like to thank them again for being one of, if not the only place on the beach to allow my over 25 lb canine part of the family to stay with us. Hospitality more than made up for luxury.
