The Atwater is a great place if you want to visit Catalina Island on a budget. They have the most reasonable prices and you will get a fair and comfortable room at a decent price. The issue comes down to the stairs. That is, coming and going. There are no elevators and if you end up on the third floor, it is going to be a great work out, especially carrying your bags.
There are no fancy spreads and the lobby offers water or coffee. But, the staff is friendly and always willing to help you out. The views are roof tops expect for a few rooms, so don’t plan on looking out onto the ocean.
All that said, it is my favorite place and most reasonable on my budget. If you pick this place, you will love it; you just need to be able to go up and down those stairs!
