We stayed here 2 nights over the Memorial Day weekend (Friday and Saturday). We enjoyed it, the bed was very comfortable and the size of the room was perfect. We met some interesting folks at the wine and appetizer hour each day. My only regret is that the breakfast was served at 9 each day, would have preferred it to...

My wife and I took a weekend trip to Catalina during the weekend of April 12th. This was the first time away from the kids for awile so we wanted to focus on having a relaxing and enjoyable visit to the Island. As soon as we approached the Old Turner Inn I was impressed with its charm. Our Queen Suite...

It's been 15 years since our last trip to Catalina and the Old Tuner Inn. We chose the Inn again since we had enjoyed our stay last time. And as anticipated, we again had a wonderful stay. Our Innkeepers, Kathleen & Christa, only not only gracious hosts they are both long time residents of the island so they can really...

My wife and I now consider the owners as friends after staying our first time, and look forward to seeing them as much as the island itself. The B&B is in a perfect quiet midtown location which allows us to step out and enjoy the town in total convenience. Breakfast always is a treat, and happy hour is a great...

A few months ago, my mom, sister and I came to the Old Turner Inn for a girls weekend. My sister had stayed there before with her husband and highly recommended it. Gina was our innkeeper for the weekend and she made us feel like we were a part of her family. We loved chatting with her and her dad...

We just spent three wonderful evening at the Old Turner Inn. Great location with fireplace and free rental of movies. Kathleen Hill and her wonderful family have a great sense of history of living on beautiful Catalina Island since 1890 when it was a tent colony. This was our first visit to the island and we felt as if we...

We just spent an evening at the Old Turner Inn and I could not have been more pleased with the experience (this is coming from a guy that would normally NEVER choose a B&B). From the moment we made the reservation it was a breeze. It is a quick walk to the property which is centrally located only a block...

We spent two relaxing nights at the Old Turner Inn, and would recommend it to anyone, regardless of age. The quaint, cozy atmosphere and the impeccably clean accommodations were top notch. The location is also a plus--walking distance from everything. The 5:00 PM beverages and appetizers were a nice touch not often seen at other B & B's. Breakfasts both...

We just returned from a one-night stay at the Old Turner Inn and had a lovely time. The inn is run by extremely friendly and helpful people, which we noticed from the very first phone call we made to reserve our room. It's a perfect location and really does feel like staying in your own comfortable home away from home....

A special get away treat for the holidays. This family owned and operated B&B is wonderful, cozy, friendly, spotless and reminiscent of old Catalina. It's located within blocks of the landing boat docks, shop and restaurants. Remember no cars * walk every where! Delightful. Meet and greet at 6pm with owners and a wonderful breakfast in the morning. We loved...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
There is nothing like the staying at The Old Turner Inn. You'll feel connected to the Island by being hosted by a family that has had roots here since 1878. Located in the heart of Avalon, just one short block from the waterfront, beaches, shops & restaurants, this immaculately kept Cape Cod structure reveals a balance of comfort and elegance to its guests. Sunny sitting porches, in-room fireplaces, private bathrooms, antiques, gallery quality artwork of Catalina scenes, historic family photos, and a grand piano combined with our full, scrumptious hot breakfast and friendly staff... Together, they set the mood for a unique, romantic and relaxing Island getaway. ... more   less
