Catalina Conundrum!

Help! I am attending a wedding and can only stay on the island for one night, May 13th. All the hotels that I contacted require a 2 day minimum stay, any suggestions?

If I have to resort to camping, could anyone let me know which camp site is the best in Hermit Gulch?

Where is the wedding party staying? Ordinarily, the hotel that is hosting the wedding party should be willing to make accommodations for you as well.

Did you try the Zane Grey Pueblo


Their website makes no mention of a minimum 2-night stay.

Here are the reviews of the hotel on Trip Advisor:

The only way I was able to get a hotel for 1 night in Avalon was to wait until the Thursday before the weekend I wanted to go there. If the hotels have availability they will release the rooms for 1 night stays after that. This is a bit of a gamble but it worked for me.

Thank you both for your advice.

The wedding party decided to rent a house, so no luck there. Zane Grey Pueblo was actually my first choice, but they also require the 2 day min on that weekend.

I contacted the Chamber of Commerce and their suggested hotels required the two day minimum. They also suggested waiting until the Monday before I leave and give them a call for the list of hotels to release one night reservations.

I guess I have to roll the dice…

Thanks again!
