Good location and very clean. Always looks as just renovated. We have been staying here for 20 years and it is the best hotel Avalon. BUT, expensive and hotel demands at least 2 day stay on weekends. Near center of Avalon but far enough from main street to be quiet.

Room Tip: Stay during weekday. Weekends my be expensive and require 2 day stay. Get a room facing to ocean as other side faces a cheap hotel used by working locals.

Thanks Bruce for your kind comments. We appreciate you choosing Catalina Island Inn for 20 years ---WOW, we love returning guests! There are plenty of months when Avalon hotels don't require a 2- night minimum. Catalina Island Inn is still offering 25% Sunday through Thursday in June. Our central location and clean , contemporary and competitively priced rooms delight visitors . Call our reservation specialists to get your next trip planned! We'll have your room ready.

We recently spent three nights at the Catalina Island Inn, and what a positive experience! Very newly remodeled with the best quality furnishings and linen. Clean... comfortable. Absolutely no complaints. Location was perfect! We got a great deal on room rates on the internet and it helped that it was before Memorial day. I guess the only thing that could have been better was the "view" of Vons roof, but due to location and how everything is small and tight in Avalon, not much that could be done about that.

Thanks Linda for your great review of the Catalina Island Inn. Location, location, location --- our hotel is situated 1/2 block from the beach and the harbor. Our Victorian style building was originally built in 1907. The rooms are frequently remodeled and upgraded (including the furnishings and linens). We hope you'll be back to visit us again soon.

Friendly and courteous staff. Great location right in the middle of town. Room was clean and comfortable with a nice contemporary design. The reservation agent warned that this particular room was a bot loud because of street noise and he was right, but it really was not bad. Regardless, I really appreciated his telling me about it in advance. Had a wonderful stay and will definitely stay here again.

My boyfriend and I stayed here and loved it. We were in room 442, which has an amazing view!! WOW!!! Other reviewers complained that the fans from the Vons next door bothered them, but it didn't bother us at all, we didn't even notice. The room was so comfortable - the bed and pillows were great and we had an air conditioner, so we could set the room to a temperature we were most comfortable at! The room was extremely clean and updated. It was a huge plus that the room had two closets to hang up your clothes and a nice mini fridge. The hotel also has continental breakfast in the morning which we really enjoyed. The coffee was delicious, they had about 15 different teas to choose from, orange juice, milk, several different pastries, fresh fruit, and 4 different flavors of oatmeal. It was really fun bringing breakfast up to the room and enjoying it on our peaceful balcony. We could see some of the patios on the first floor and those looked really nice and comfortable too. We might try those next time for a new experience, plus the balcony got pretty hot and the patios look like they provide nice shade. I highly recommend this hotel, the staff was really nice too.

Thanks Lisa for your great review of the Catalina Island Inn. Our owners and staff work very hard to keep the hotel in pristine condition. We are always choosing "the best" in everything we provide from pillows to plenty of specialty teas for our guests. Our harbor view balcony rooms are spectacular--- every amenity contributes to guest satisfaction. If May is any indication --- summer is going to be sensational! We are adding air conditioning to many of our Classic Queen non view rooms. Catalina Island Inn is always upgrading and responding to what visitors want in a vacation destination. We hope you'll be back to stay with us again soon.

Great room, has cable TV, clean and is walking distance to almost everything. One caveat, bathroom is very small, small shower stall but it has great water pressure. No A/C in our room. The weekend we were there it was rather warm.

Room Tip: Did not see a pool or fitness area. No A/C in our room on a weekend that was rather warm.
