Place was clean & neat. We stayed in 105 with a king size bed. It was perfect, and the end so we share only one wall. It looked like the bathroom & kitchen were updated. I was concerned about the no view, but once I got there I realized we would be in the room to sleep & didn't need...

This place is great! My experience began even before we arrived. I had computer issues trying to book online so I called the hotel directly. Erica booked our room for me and was so helpful and patient through my technological downfalls. When we arrived in Avalon, we took our free shuttle ride to the hotel without any issues. The room...

We have been to Catalina Island several times before and knew we wanted accommodations right in town that included a kitchen. This hotel provided both. Our room was an ocean view mini-suite. It was spacious, clean and had a very nice view. The only negatives are 1) the window with the view is actually the walk way for all guest...

Zero amenities, bad location, luggage storage not as advertised. Mountain view room is actually hill side view of neighbors not well kept yards. An OK clean room and size. Unless you can walk up and down a steep hill do not book it. No shuttles.

Great location and helpful staff. Walking distance to beach, shops, restaurants and bars. The hotel is at the top of a hill but the walk was fine for my 4 year old. Taxis are available near by, if needed. Hotel is a bit dated but our room was quiet and clean. Loved having the kitchen, it was a great way...

We stayed here for two nights in July 2016, me, my husband and our two kids - 17 and 23. It is nothing fancy but we found our room to be clean and spacious. The free car ride to the hotel from the ferry was very convenient. It's located up a hill so it is a little bit of a...

We've stayed here a couple of times. We booked one of their townhouses for our family and it worked out really well. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. It would be nice if there were a few more cooking utensils in the kitchen so you can really prepare meals. The hike up the hill is challenging but it's a...

“The mountain view rooms pretty much look down into someone's back yard, so if you're into views, maybe pick ocean view for a few more $$”
