My husband and I stayed at the Catalina Lodge for three nights in June. Our visit actually began weeks before that when I called Roberta (the owner) to get information regarding the Catalina Express and the Super Shuttle from LAX. She was very friendly and helpful and gave me advice that helped to make the connections on our trip run smoothly. When we got to our room, we found it to be quiet, clean, and pleasant. It had a new mattress on the bed and the walls had been freshly painted. She even gave my husband a mug to use for his morning coffee so he didn't have to drink from a styrofoam cup every day and loaned us beach chairs free of charge so we could hang out at the beach. The location could not have been more convenient - only a block from the beach and centrally located on a street that was quiet and quaint. We especially appreciated having our room on ground level so we did not have to drag our suitcases up steps like when we stayed at a different hotel in Catalina last year. When we go back to Avalon we will be sure to stay here again!
