I would not be writing this review if I had paid hostel prices for this hotel and expected bad hostel level accommodations This place is effectively hostel quality at a hotel price. The rooms are small and cramped, the mattresses sag and creak, the blinds on the windows are falling apart, the sheets were threadbare, grey colored, stained, and I found hairs in the bed I was sleeping in. The bathrooms are tiny and dirty, again I found hairs on the floor. There is dust everywhere, the fan was coated in it, as were the walls and ceiling beams. The walls are paper thin, so bring ear plugs. This could be a nice hotel due to its location but the standard of cleaning, maintenance, and beds/bathrooms is poor. On the plus side, the location is good (though it is on one of the busier roads), and the front desk staff were very friendly.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hermosa is Catalina’s friendly, quaint, economy hotel located in the heart of Avalon half block from the beach and a short, flat walk from the boat landing. The Historic Hermosa Hotel has been serving guests of the island as far back as 1896 and, as was the style then, our rooms are small and simple. No thrills or frills- ... more less
