My family and I recently visited “Catalina Beach House”, we spent 5 nights in rooms 10 and 11, they were located down a flight of stairs in the back of the building. It was what we expected, an older place with small rooms, small bathrooms and little kitchen areas with Clean plates, cups and silverware. TV was very nice, flat screen, didn't watch it much but it was nice. The patio areas were nice, grill was a little to “used” for my liking but worked. The Wifi, it was okay for most of the time, it worked best in the patio areas, from our rooms it was sketchy at best, no big deal we weren’t there to surf the internet but checking mail was important. I have an iPhone and hopping on the net with ATT was fast. Night time was quiet.

The hill wasn’t to bad, it will get your heart rate up for 30 seconds but it’s really a short walk.

The staff was great! They picked us up at the dock when we arrived and dropped us off for departure. We needed some extra towels and pillows after normal hours, called the # and within minutes we had what we were after. The maids were usually around if we needed anything.

My partner and I were looking for a room for $100-150/ night. The Catalina Beach House had a room for $150/ night. To find a room in Avalon at that price during the summer season is quite a challenge.

The top floor is a converted boat house that was dragged up the hill after 1900. The rooms are clean. There are several decks, some with views of the harbor. We used the BBQ to cook hamburgers. There is shuttle service from the boat dock. When we asked that something get done, it was done very fast. Scotty was very helpful and right on the job.

Room Tip: Don't choose the "value" priced rooms unless you want to be in a dark room down stair. These rooms are $50 less per night but it was worth the extra dollars for a room with light and a spa tub in the room.

Good and cozy place...
Pros: Very close to the beach. Very comfortable. Very friendly. Our room had a Jacuzzi.
Cons: Walk uphill for 5 minutes. But for luggage, they provide shuttle service from Hermosa, which is their sister concern.
But I feel the price is a bit too much.

This was a good experience for us..arrived on the island @10:30...left our bags @ sister property...called me 30 minutes later that our room was ready. :) nice view from our room. A/c a little loud. But with windows open much better. Would stay here again
.

Room Tip: We stayed in room # 1...nice deck outside and water feature to lull you to sleep.

This was not a bad place and the other reviews make it clear its decor is kind of "funky" and amateurish. Without our asking, Tom, the young manager, sent a golf cart to the ferry dock to pick us up and was pleasant and helpful when we arrived. That said, its located is up a hill that's a pretty challenging walk from the main drag and as to the "value" TA lists several options that were LESS than the $151 a night we paid and got higher ratings. Not terrible, but not recommended.
