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...

It took me hours to finally book a hotel room on Avalon. I try to find the best value for the best price and found it with this hotel. It's clean and very small, 15 rooms only. You get a free taxi ride, valued $12, which is great. If you arrive early and your room is not ready, they will...

Ok place to stay for our family. Clean reasonable sized rooms, but didn't like that the windows open to the passage where everyone walked. A one block walk up the hill from the harbor. Not the closest but close enough.

This is the second time I've brought a group of pilots (24 people) to Catalina and we stayed at the El Terado Terrace both times. The staff, and especially Ivan, are attentive to every detail and they jump over backwards to be helpful. The rooms are clean and comfortable and they all have kitchens. We stayed in one of the...

The room was okay, nothing extraordinary, a huge TV (if you need it), fully equipped kitchen is a great option if you travel with your family. The staff are friendly and nice. The hotel is located on a hill, it takes about 5-8 minutes to walk to the downtown, which is not a big deal. However, please be aware it...

“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 $$”
