Look no further stay here!
Incredible stay, came here celebrating girlfriend’s birthday. Stayed here 3 nights and also offered a discounted stranded rate after being stuck on island so 4 total nights. The location is fabulous just up the hill on a Main Street in town. Staff was very welcoming and friendly throughout stay. The rooms are very clean, classy, bed is soft just melt right into it. The room is pretty big, I have read that on other hotel rooms on this island it can be a negative factor. The roof top deck is a great place to have a drink or just take in the views. When we checked in I told them it’s my girlfriends birthday the following day. They provided champagne and a lovely card for a fantastic memory. It was a very nice surprise to come back to the hotel on her birthday and see that awaiting her. I would definitely recommend staying here and would stay there again in a future visit. We saw many of the the other hotels on the island and are satisfied that this is the best option on Catalina island.
Ceramic tile so pretty, bathroom.

Wow - What a great hotel. Great location within waling distance of the Avalon harbor, maybe 5-7 minutes walk, or they offer a free taxi ride over from the harbor. Scenic views of the harbor and the Casino, great staff (friendly, helpful, knowledgeable), great service, and accommodating during the big storm that rolled in for New Years Eve 2022. The person behind the desk was very nice, helpful, offered suggestions on things to see and do, he even helped another guest get a tie for the NYE party at the Casino, the guest had forgotten his tie. He was nice enough to tell us about the storm coming in and the boats might be cancelled coming in and going out. He told us to check with the boat place to make sure we could get a change in our boat tickets and get off the island. The day we got in, we arrived a little early but they stored our bags and then delivered them to our room before we got there. Great local taffy in the lobby, and some more in your room along with some drinks and chocolates. The room was spacious, clean, filled with amenities. The hotel is very close to shopping, restaurants, the harbor, the casino, etc. We are definitely looking forward to visiting again.

The staff was lovely the price was outrageous for what it was. For that kind of money at least a "real" breakfast and not frozen english muffins should be served.

Great Experience
Short trip from LA to Catalina. The hotel is convenient- located off the main pedestrian street so was very quiet. They have a lovely courtyard with Koi pond for breakfast. Rooftop deck with great 360 view. Everything was clean and well maintained. Staff was friendly and professional. Would stay again.

Lovely boutique hotel. Charmingly decorated. Thoughtful touches. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. The view from the roof deck is spectacular, especially at night. Conveniently located. Voucher for taxi to and from the ferry is provided -- a really nice extra so you don't have to drag your suitcases over the cobblestone streets.
