The Catalina Island Inn is a sweet hotel. We were on the top floor with a balcony overlooking the ocean. However, the 4 story hotel does NOT have an elevator, so I was quite surprised when we checked in with our heavy luggage. I was panting by the time we got there. The room was small, but very modern, pretty...

Thanks for your review of the Catalina Island Inn. Our harbor view rooms on the 4th floor are spectacular but it is a "bit of a climb" especially with heavy luggage. Our reservationists consistently remind guests that we are an "all stairs" property and the information is also in every confirmation email. We also have personnel to help with getting...

We loved it! Spent the weekend. Close to everything. Next door to Vons. Room # 443. Fourth floor - no elevator. Knew in advance, so did not care! Very clean, tidy, wonderful staff, newly decorated - could smell the fresh paint in the hall. Excellent harbor views from the small balcony. Comfortable bed. Clean linen. Lots of stations on the...

Hi Yaya and Adi, Thank you for your kind review of the Catalina Island Inn. The 4th floor rooms are definitely worth the climb. You wrote about our great amenities in such detail ---- we couldn't have said it better! We hope to welcome you again soon!

Reviewed 24 November 2013

We liked this place because there was a feel that the owners/managers genuinely cared if guests enjoyed their stay. Rooms were well decorated and did't have the box motel feel. Very cozy and clean. Trip Advisor on the other hand is irritating because there is a minimum amount of characters that have to be in a particular box.

A wonderful room with private patio and extremely comfortable with friendly and helpful staff. Location is not much of a walk, right next to the grocery store. Very nice continental breakfast in the morning, with coffee and fruit available all day. Big screen tv was a nice surprise

Impression: Stayed at the B&B for our honeymoon. Juan greeted us and checked us in. Location: Right off Metropole, so it is very close to everything.

Thanks for your glowing review of the Catalina Island Inn and congratulations on your recent nuptials. We're glad you enjoyed the hotel and the honeymoon.

First time here, but it won't be the last. The harbor view from the 4th floor balcony rooms were spectacular. The only downside, there are no elevators to take you up there. Hauling up luggage can be a bit of a struggle. The decor and accommodations were comfortable, the staff friendly and courteous. Next time, we may try their first...

Thanks for your review of the Catalina Island Inn. The harbor views from our King Bed Balcony rooms on the 4th floor ARE fantastic! But the climb can be a challenge.

Love the decor nicely renovated, the rooms are small but very nice and clean. We had 4 couples and would have liked a place to meet and play games in the evening.

Thanks for your nice review of the Catalina Island Inn. Our common areas are limited because everything is just smaller on Catalina. There are restaurants, clubs and bars nearby but booking one of the Inn's King Bed private patio suites is an excellent way to gather with friends or to entertain in your room. We are proud of our staff...

My son (8 years old) and I spend my birthday on Catalina. This hotel was just right for us. It had two twin beds, the cruise ship room. We only needed space to sleep so it was perfect. Such a cute little place and nicely remodeled. It wasn't right on the beach, but close to everything.

We were working on the island for 4 days , yes working. Not what most do on Catalina as visitors I am sure. My room was small and the view was of the side wall of a grocery store. I am glad I was not staying there for vacation but in those cases the views are elsewhere on the island....
