Cheap luxury may seem to be an oxymoron, but there was quality where quality really counted. This was my first visit to Catalina Island, California. I found Hermosa Hotels while searching the internet for places to stay. I loved the price, and expected much less that we got for the price. The rooms were small, with minimal inconvenience (rooms were small, showers/toilets outside of room). However, the staff was extremely friendly and informative and exhibited excellent customer service. The linen/towels were white, clean, and soft (very important if you've had a day in the sun). The bed was very comfortable. The showers were hot, and the facilities clean. Even the toilet paper was high quality. The free coffee each morning was gourmet quality and hot. These high quality amenities far outweighed the lack of space and the minor inconvenience. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to any budget traveler/diver/beachgoer to anyone. I will stay there again on my next visit to Catalina.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hermosa Hotel keeps it simple for you… clean rooms at low prices and DOG FRIENDLY! Our friendly, active staff enjoys all the island has to offer and we will get all you adventure-seekers dialed in with our “locals scoop” to make sure you have the most fun possible during your island visit! We are preferred amongst scuba divers, with free dive lockers & dive carts available. We are Catalina Island’s pet-friendly, economy hotel located in the heart of Avalon, just a short 10-15 minute walk from the boat landing. 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
