We spent a night on Catalina Island and had chosen the Catalina Lodge on the advice of friends. It is a terrific find - friendly, pleasant, great location, very moderate price with a new mattress on each bed, and freshly painted rooms. Each room also has a refrigerator and a microwave - which is a real convenience given the high prices for restaurants and often long waits for a table. The young woman on the desk (a member of the family that owns the Lodge) was very knowledgeable about the island, and extremely helpful in advising on activities for a short stay.

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
