Dear Greg--- Thanks for your awesome comments about Catalina Island Inn. We're so glad you found us. Our first floor King Private Patio Fireplace rooms are amazing. There are also King Suites with plenty of room for entertaining or for a quiet cozy retreat. We do not have an elevator but we assist guests with luggage to the upper floors and the King Balcony Harbor views are spectacular. Travelers select their preferred room type and our staff can answer questions about amenities, floor plan, location within the hotel, view potential or noise factors. Our location close to restaurants, shops and tours is perfect for guests. We hope you visit again soon and often.

As someone who has worked in high end hospitality for over 20 years, I am fairly critical of hotels. This boutique hotel is a gem with the most helpful and friendly staff that I have found in Avalon. The room was great, with a balcony and large bathroom. Apparently room #414

We had family come in from the east coast in December and couldn't have picked a better place to go. We get there a few hours before check in and with luggage in hand the desk clerk allowed us to do an early check in because one of our rooms was ready he said we could go ahead

We had a "queen" and I think you could do it, it might be tight. Our room had a single also. You might consider using it with extra pillows & blankets around the bed on the floor. We've had great success with that technique & sleep better. Cheers, Badger

What about an emotional service animal?
We allow essential, small sized service dogs. There is a $100 non refundable pet fee and we only allow therapy dogs in specific rooms near the exits or on the first floor of the hotel. Call us to get assistance.
