My BFF was turning 75 and had never been to Catalina. So we took the Catalina Express (free on her birthday) I printed out all of the hotels in Avalon in price order. The least expensive was Catalina Lodge. I called and made a inquiry, made the reservation, thinking I can always call to cancel. The other hotels were more than double that price. So fortunately I was able to keep my reservation. And so glad we did. Right across the street is where you book and take your tours. Vons just around the block. Flat walking, no hills. Coffee in the office ready at 7:15am. Micro and little fridge in each room.Very clean. The parents owned it in the 70's and now Roberta and her husband own it. In the summer months the prices go up so we were blessed that this hotel was in our budget and will stay again every summer.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):

With the water rationing imposed because of the severe drought, we are unable to accommodate single night stays. Thank you for your understanding. ... more less
