“Intimate Cottage+Gracious Host=Romantic Weekend”
Reviewed 28 November 2004

Beautiful post Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The King Suite is spacious, light and warm with a nice wood burning fireplace and lots of hot water. Afternoon hors d’oeuvres with wine in front of the down stairs fireplace is a great place to chat with the innkeeper and fellow guests. Breakfast is served a little late for my taste, but was delicious. Christa was our weekend innkeeper and she is a gracious host (ask about the USC football games!). We are B&B groupies and will definitely return.

What a special place... The Old Turner Inn. We truly enjoyed our time in Catalina. The accomadations at this quaint B&B are excellent. We loved the "Sea Shell" room & will definitely return to enjoy the scrumptuous breakfast & "happy hour". The hospitality is superb!

We've stayed at several hotels in Catalina, and the Old Turner Inn was by far the best. Convenient to everything, but far enough from the main drag to be quiet. Wonderful food in the morning, nice wine and snacks in the afternoon, and spotlessly clean and comfortable rooms. Well worth the cost.

Each morning the smell of fresh Granola cooking on the stove fills the air and wakes you from a peaceful slumber. It makes it feel like you are staying in a house with friends and family. Catalina is a great place to visit, and the Old Turner Inn's atmosphere makes it that much better. The other hotels are wonderful, but the feeling of the Old Turner makes traveling less stressful and helps to relax the mind and body. It is our number one choice on the island. Hope you feel the same.

The rooms were great and so was the hospitality, we felt right at home.
The hostess was really sweet and thoughtful and the afternoon wine and hors d'oeuvres were a wonderful touch.

The Old Turner Inn is a quaint little B&B a few blocks off the waterfront. The theme rooms are well taken care off and the hospitality is second to none. If you're looking for a quiet place to stay just off the beaten path, then this is the place to stay.
