“Poor quality in physical accommodation and staff professionalism”
Reviewed 8 February 2006

There was one positive aspect of Casa Mariquita, that was a rooftop terrace with table, chairs, and attractive plants. Other than that, our experience was terribly disappointing, starting with the unprofessional attitude of the deskclerk (she addressed us,"you guys") and the poor housekeeping in the room. I was compelled to write to the hotel regarding the carpeting in our room being so much in need of shampooing, that it was actually sticky. I did not receive a reply.

People...only stay here if you are looking for cheap and dirty! This was motel 6...no motel 5! This is where you stay if you have no other choice. The place was not filthy, but I would not describe it as clean. The walls must be made of paper because we could hear every toilet flush...every shower...and some other things we did not really want to hear. All I can say is thank goodness it was for only one night and never again. I would rather cut my visit to Catalina short than stay at the Casa Mariquita again.

The outside is inviting; the receptionist Sara was very helpful.
there is NO elevator; I had to drag my luggage up and down 4 flights of stairs. The room was cramped and so dark!
It was clean though. I would not stay here again.

This is a nice property with updated pleasant decor. We stayed on a May weekend in a standard room. The room was clean and seemed fairly new. No musty smells and everything was in good repair. This hotel is within easy walking distance to all of Avalon, however it is up a slight hill. The staff was friendly and helpful.
