“Catalina is great”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

Let me start off by saying that hotels in Avalon, Catalina are usually expensive if you are looking for a 1 night's stay over the summer/fall weekends. We managed to get a not so expensive price for a 1 night's stay at this hotel in late October. The hotel is a short walk from Main Street and stands out with its cute pink color. Our room (we had 1 queen bed) was a little cramped, but was ok for the 2 of us. The furnishings were quite decent, and the bathroom was clean as well. The room itself didn't quite have any great view, but if you go to the roof-top of the hotel, you will get beautiful views. We spent most of our first day on the beach and on the Main Street area. On the second day we did the

Considering the price we got for that weekend's stay, I'd give this place 4/5. Else, if we were to pay the usual prices, I'd say this one is 3/5. But Catalina is certainly a must do and we had a good stay at St. Lauren.

Absolutely loved the charm of this hotel. Close enough to the action but set back off the main street allowed for good sleep. Only downer was the outdated flowery bedspreads. Would recommend for sure!

The stay was Great at Avalon, but the hotel is set back more and a bit of a walk, besides rooms being alil small Been trying to get another vacation day set up, but the staff are not working with me enough to get a good time and date set. Very frustrating that they want my money but cant work with me to schedule an appointment so I can make plans with the wife.

Room Tip: Read the reviews first and do some investigating on where you want to stay. I should have done this...

Over all it was a very pleasant overnight stay. All of this was very accommodating. We were able store luggage before check in and after and we checked out. Very helpful making reservations and recommendations for restaurants.

The location allowed easy access to downtown and the pier.

Room Tip: It is a small hotel so all rooms are good

Great views on the community balcony, but if you're in a group needing two rooms then just get rooms 501 and 511. Those two rooms have an adjoining deck of their own, which has amazing views of Avalon Bay! Two of my friends, my wife, and I loved this quaint hotel. Easily walkable to the main boardwalk and just far enough from the bar scene to not be noisy. We would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Very adequate hotel. Clean and nice bathrooms. Decor is outdated but lovely view from the top deck. Coffee in the morning , but with powdered creamer, yuck. The price was reasonable since it is off season.

We stayed two nights at this very pleasent Victorian Style Hotel. For the price, it was more then extected because of the view. We were on the 6th floor very near the outside deck. Room was large and had plenty of room for our scuba diving gear. The rooms were adequate and comfortable but not elegant or luxirious, but then I did not have that expectation. We were there to dive and not spend time in the room. the location is very accessable. I would have no issue with going back again.
