Premium queen w tub

The room was no bigger than the queen size bed and two chairs. Rm 303 had no view except out of the bathroom. The old fashion tube/shower had no mat and was a slip and fall hazard.

Lucked out

Pros: Decor. Quality. Cleanliness
Cons: Information about entry after hours. Better "breakfast"
I think we lucked out a got a room upgrade. Came with a great jetted spa tub and a huge TV. Getting in there in the evening was a little confusing. There was a main office that was separate, but the Agent there came down and let us in . Really cute garden area. The King bed was awesome and the decor was really nice. The "breakfast" was basically donuts and coffee which was a little lame, but I almost never care about that stuff. I liked the place and would def come back.

Old hotel

Pros: Overall the place was clean.
Cons: The whole place needs to be updated.
Location: Catalina Island is a Wonderful place to relax and unwind
The bed looked to be a double bed not queen size. The rooms were small and outdated. Paint was peeling off the walls and the toilet leaned to the left!! The hair dryer had old crusty stuff in the screen. The shower door was so small I could hardly fit. Donuts were the continental breakfast.

Nice hotel with friendly staff

This hotel was very quaint, reminding me of my grandma's house, with its wallpaper, quilts, and period style decor. The room was very small, but comfortable and functional. The staff was very friendly, the hotel is conveniently located to all in Avalon. The lobby had donuts available all day (my son's favorite part!). The hotel is up a small hill and there are a lot of stairs.
