The Hotel St. Lauren is ideally situated to offer full access to Avalon. It's a block from the beach and main street, and only about five blocks from the casino. Virtually everything is within walking distance. The hotel itself has old-time charm, with chintz bedspreads and curtains. Beds are comfortable, baths are very clean. And it's moderately priced, which makes...

Pretty Victorian Building - very dated and tired looking inside - in need of upgrade. There is also NO SECURE luggage location - would be easy to address if they put lock on door to area where luggage is stored and took responsibility for locked luggage. With check in /check out hours not matching well with ferry service schedules -...

We just returned from a 3 day stay in Catalina. The St. Lauren was perfect - we were traveling with our kids - so we didn't want to spend too much money on the hotel. This was ideal - very affordable - especially if you can travel mid week - we arrived on Sunday and checked out on Wednesday ($99...

We had decided to stay an extra day and our hotel was sold out for Friday so we found Hotel St. Lauren. The location is great, close to everything. The "patio" on the sixth floor offers stunning views of the bay. Since it was a Friday night, we probably paid the "weekend rate" of $199 for a King room with...

The hotel is a great place to stay. My room was very clean and the people working there were very helpful. Everything is within walking distance. I would have preferred for the hotel to service some type of breakfast in morning, but that was not a big deal. There are a few restaurants very close. I would definitely stay there...

From the minute we arrived in Catalina everything was just perfect. Once we got to Hotel St. Lauren the staff greeted us as if we were family.

My wife and I stayed here at the request of a friend. We had never even heard of it prior to our stay. This place is GREAT. The location is perfect. Just a block up from Vons and two or three blocks up from the hustle and bustle on the main drive at the harbor. So you can walk to...

We enjoyed our stay very much. We had a partial view of the beautitul harbor. The room was very clean. For what we paid, it was what we expected and worth it.

We have been staying at this hotel for years, great price and great packages. With the cheap price you get to hear the front desk staff complain about each other and management, they never smile. The rooms are good for the price but new comforters would be nice. The fact that we stay there time and again tells you overall...
