Party spot

Posted Jul 21, 2014
Pros: Close to everything.
Cons: The rooms, hallways are smelly and the happy hour. Need better drinks for happy hour, the drinks have no alcohol, I guess that's why it's free.
Location: Great location, restaurants all around, clubs, the beach are all near by
The hotel was ok, not great but ok. Great location! You're paying for the location.

Close to beach

Posted Jul 20, 2014
Cute hotel. Conveniently located. I loved the sushi restaurant attached to the hotel. I like it wasn't on Ocean drive so I could get away from the masses.

Quaint hotel near the beach

Posted Jul 15, 2014
The room was nice and quaint. It was small but clean and modern. The halls were a bit dreary though. The carpet needs to be deep cleaned. The rooftop pool bar was cute! I liked the bed/seating and cozy ambiance. The lower level pool was very nice! That pool was longer, deeper and more attractive. And, I loved the proximity to the beach!!!

Hello there Ms. PinkKee, We value all of our guests feedback! Thank you for sharing yours with us and all of our future guests. We are delighted to read that you were content with the room. We are indeed a boutique hotel therefore our rooms are a bit smaller then your average hotel. Our Living Large room is 245 sq ft, and our El Grande is 280 sq ft. Perhaps one of those rooms would have been a better fit for you. Our rooftop pool area is beautiful and such a perfect spot to soak up the summer sun! We would love to have you stay with us again!

Great location to beach and ocean drive.

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: Location to beach and Ocean drive...shopping center.
Cons: the toilet in my room.
Location: Beach, jet skiing,ocean drive....Starbucks!!
This was my second stay with Catalina and overall I did enjoy the hotel. Was walking distance to many shops, beach, and restaurants. The room was clean and the staff was very helpful. Now this hotel is more of a party hotel so I wouldn't recommend families of someone seeking peace and quiet, however between Mon-Thurs it can get a little quiet. Also the Catalina restaurant is next door and was very convenient and offered a variety of entrees...For a single guy like myself I will definitely return....but I do have one complaint...the toilet would whistle after several hours and get loud enough to wake me up but I never reported it...was only staying two nights so what the heck.

Love the rooftop pool!

Posted Jul 14, 2014
Pros: Love the rooftop pool!, and the bartenders were very cool dudes.
Cons: The lighting in my room was dull and gloomy w/o opening the window.
Location: Great location for the beach, just one block away, and many cafe's, restaurants, and shops all around.
The pros & cons of staying at this little jewel probably balance out...don't expect a luxury hotel or perfection and you'll enjoy your stay. Be aware, non-valet public parking is two blocks away and cost about $16 a day. Though there is a free happy hour (or two), a rum & coke purchase midday cost me $15!

The room was very small. Air conditioner rarely got room below 78 degrees. Loud party going on until 5:00am. When booked, we were told that the hotel was on the beach. It was a block away.

Good Day and thank you for sharing your feedback with us! We are indeed a boutique hotel therefore our rooms are a bit smaller then your average hotel room. We offer rooms that are more spacious. Our Living Large room is 245 sq ft and our El Grande rooms are 280 sq ft. Our hotel is located on South Beach, but not directly on the beach. Perhaps you misunderstood what they informed you.

We appreciate your honest review! The Catalina Hotel is located just a convenient block away from the beach.We are working to change the carpeting in the hallways. We are taking sections at a time so that we don't inconvenience our guests.
