So before making sure i wanted to stay at this hotel i had to read all the reviews-just like anyone else. I wanted to make sure what i was getting myself into. Well, I'm surprised at all the complaints about this hotel!! I stayed in room 305 on the third floor and i have no complaints whatsoever. My room was very quite, i wasn't able to hear any noise like what others left in their reviews. I didn't mind looking at the roof top at vons, at least i could still see the sky and just a tad bit of the ocean! Who goes to Catalina to just stay in their rooms anyway? I loved the location of the hotel and especially that it was next to vons. The hotel is so cute and has friendly staff. I had a great stay here with my husband and we would definitely come back here again! Wish i was there right now actually :)

Our 49th anniversary celebration was perfect. We had a beautiful view of the harbor from our balcony. We found a bottle of champagne on ice waiting in our room - nice surprise. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Only downside was the absence of an elevator to the fourth floor. We counted the 66 steps each time we had to climb them. Location is right in the heart of Avalon, close to everything. The package that included the boat from/to Dana Pt, two nights lodging and taxi to and from the pier made it quite reasonable for our special vacation. Thanks Catalina Island Inn for a great time.

Not knowing anything about the hotels in Avalon, I booked a king, harbor view room. It was great! We had a top floor recently remodeled room that faced the harbor. Some of the other rooms didn't look like much so we were really happy with ours. Thankfully it's off the main drag by less than a block which can be noisy and it was an added plus to have Von's grocery store directly next door. The continental breakfast isn't much but there is also a great cafe and coffee house steps away near the metropole. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Make sure you are ok with looking into another building if you don't get a harbor view. The hotel is pretty good with the room descriptions and photos on their website.

Thanks for writing your review of the Catalina Island Inn. Our King bed harbor view rooms are very popular. The entire hotel was remodeled in 2010 and every room has clean contemporary style and amenities. A variety of suites, family rooms and even "cruise ship style" accommodations with two twin beds cater to every budget and type of traveler. Our location is also convenient to dining, shopping or just sitting on the beach. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to hosting you again soon.

Staff was helpful and friendly. Overall appearance of the Inn was very attractive, especially comparing to a few others in town. Rooms had nice decor, but bathroom was tiny. Could hardly turn around in the shower, so I would hate to see a large man try to move around in it. The bed took up the majority of the room, so moving around the king bed was difficult. I hit my toe and shins on the wooden frame a few times.

However, it was still a very nice place and not overly pricey. I was pleased they were able to accommodate us also when the storm stranded us an extra day.

The hotel staff are very friendly. The family sized room was da decent size but lacked any kind of view. The location and proximity to attractions restaurants and beach was great. A light continental breakfast is served in their foyer.

Thanks for your review of the Catalina Island Inn. We offer the "Family Room" option with a Queen Bed, a Twin Bed, a Single Bed (which is Twin sized but shorter in length) and enough room for a rollaway. It can accommodate up to 5 people. And you're right --- this type of room is not located on the harbor side of the hotel. But Catalina is best experienced by walking around--- and as you wrote our location is ideal. The beach, restaurants, shops, bike and golf cart rentals are just steps away. Adventure awaits guests who go looking for it. Come play and stay with us again soon
