I stayed at the Hermosa Hotel on August 26th - 28th. This was my second stay there. The hotel is perfectly located - just a short walk from the ferry landing and the restaurants/bars of downtown Avalon, and also an easy walk to Casino Point. I got a standard room, which was pretty basic, but clean and comfortable. It also included a refrigerator which was a nice perk. The hotel lobby is charming, with a historic feel.
The primary purpose of my trip was to go SCUBA diving at Casino Point. Hermosa Hotel was ideal for this, as they provided carts free of charge to help with transporting equipment to and from the point. The also provide a small outdoor area with a hose to rinse dive gear, and an area for hanging up wetsuits after use - very nice for those consecutive days of diving.
Overall, it is good value for the price, and highly recommended.

The Historic Hermosa has been serving guests of the island since 1896 and our rooms are still small and simple. No fancy amenities, but most of our rooms now have air conditioning and heating. We have lots of character, as part of the charm of our 100+ year-old building is its “Catalina Funkiness.” ... more less
