Walking distance to all three bars on the island, next door to one of the only grocery markets, and with partial views of the ocean, this little gem is more conveniently located than many vacation rentals on the beach. And the price is just right. Feeling like a cozy bed and breakfast, the hotel is instantly cozy, warm, and inviting. I couldn't have asked for a more convenient and romantic getaway.

Room Tip: get the ocean view. Always worth it.

Dear Freschie---
Thank you for this fabulous review of Catalina Island Inn. Downtown Avalon has so many great establishments packed into our business district (one square mile, which is smaller than the parking lot at Dodger Stadium). We have lots of different types of rooms in varying price points. Convenient, cozy and charming are words we love to hear. Ask us about room discounts already available for midweek this autumn. Any time is the "most wonderful time of the year" to visit Catalina Island Inn. Come back again soon.

Ended up needing 5 rooms here (due to a large family trip adults and eight children ages 4-8) last minute. Staff was incredibly kind to me and the rambunctious children. In fact, one of the front staff members actually even offered food for the children in the waiting room while I was furiously trying to check in and get luggage to the rooms. Many of the rooms have pretty decent views and the price was one of the most affordable on the island.

We had different rooms both nights (only because when I say last minute, I mean I literally landed on Catalina and needed rooms for that night), but as a result we got to see numerous rooms and I can say, the hotel was very clean and each comes with a mini fridge to store food. Many of the rooms had beautiful large windows which directly lets in the beautiful morning sun and several of the rooms had a balcony. Bed sizes ranged from singles all the way up to Cal King.

Some of the rooms contained a Keurig coffee machine, which we actually used for hot water for cup of noodles.

I have to say that staff was incredibly kind and friendly to everyone in our large family and very understanding of how fickle and unpredictable children can be which was very key for this very busy vacation trip.

I should also mention, there is a Von's that's open from 6am to midnight perhaps 100-200 feet from the hotel, which was VERY convenient.

I would definitely recommend this location to anyone coming to Catalina island.

Thank you for your lovely review of Catalina Island Inn. We get great satisfaction in meeting the needs of our guests. Because travelers choose their exact room online or over the phone, bookings sometimes require us to move other guests to a different room to enjoy the 2nd or 3rd night of their stay. We try to make it easier by having our staff transfer all of the packed luggage and items such as beverages and food in the refrigerator while you are out enjoying the day. When it's time to return to the hotel we have your new keys and room ready. Our location 1/2 block from the beach and harbor is also close to dining, shopping and tours. We are happy to recommend local favorites and best buys on the island. There's always something new to see or explore so we hope to welcome you and your family back again soon.

When I called the hotel, I had the pleasure with speaking with Maria. She was absolutely friendly & make it so easy to book a room & get tickets for the Catalina express. The hotel staff, especially Maria made our trip so memorable that we’ll be coming back again! Thank you for such a wonderful weekend!

Happy Birthday Audra and thanks for choosing Catalina Island Inn. We love helping guests to celebrate their special occasion. We are happy to recommend the best room available at the lowest price for couples, families or friends traveling together. Thanks for acknowledging Maria's great work. She and the most of the staff have been part of our hotel family for many years and love what they do. Autumn is an awesome time to visit the island. Weekends are jam packed with great events like Wine Festivals, Community Art and ocean races. The weather is perfect, the ocean is warm and we offer great discounts and packages Sunday-Thursday. We hope to welcome you back to Catalina Island Inn again soon.

My husband and I recently stayed here and loved it! The partial harbour view room is amazing! Seemed larger than some of the other rooms....The location is easy walking distance to everything, as most of Catalina is, and the rooms were clean and well-appointed. Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Loved the partial harbor view room #331.

Dear Karla---
Thanks for your wonderful review of Catalina Island Inn. All of our King Balcony rooms have the identical floor plan on either the 2nd floor (non-view), 3rd floor (partial view) or 4th floor (harbor view). We also recently installed Keurig coffee systems in these rooms. We guarantee clean comfortable accommodations for all guests. and also offer rooms with twin beds, double beds or suites with space for a rollaway. The Inn is a great home base for exploring the waterfront, heading out to the Beach Club or hiking the trails and hills around Avalon. Let our staff help you plan your next island getaway. We hope to see you again soon.

My wife and I traveled to Catalina for the first time this past weekend. We were absolutely pleased and delighted with Catalina Island Inn. The front desk staff and maid staff are very personable and helped make our stay wonderful. The entire Inn is very well decorated and clean. Our room was very quiet and had a great view. The Inn is steps from the grocery store, restaurants, and bars. We are Catalina Island Inn lifers for future visits!
