The rooms look like they were just renovated with a fireplace at the foot of the bed, granite counters, and large walk in shower. The free DVDs, cookies and milk, and...

Wonderful small hotel on the third floor of a building about 50 yards from the pier. We stayed 3 nights, the first in a courtyard room and the other two in the ocean view suite. Exceptionally nice staff, great coffee in the rooms as well as a quality continental breakfast and cookies with milk in the evening. Beds are comfortable,...

Our family stayed at Vista Del Mar only one night, but during that short time we were treated royally. When making our phone reservation, we spoke with a friendly and helpful staff member who remembered us when we arrived! Our room far exceeded our expectations, the continental breakfast was more than adequate and the cookies were fresh-baked and delicious. Above...

This was my first time in Catalina. Very glad we picked this hotel. It was conveniently located. The staff was excellent. We received a call when our room was ready. They held our luggage until we checked in. The room very clean and comfortable. The continental breakfast was very good. There were blue ray dvd's to check out for free....

Great location in the middle of Avalon and a pleasant, short walk from the ferry pier. We liked the features of our deluxe courtyard room, especially the fireplace by the foot of the comfy king-sized bed and the wet bar. The complimentary continental breakfast was OK, but it was great to have it overlooking the beach from the lobby terrace....

We were pleasantly surprised how easy of a walk it was from the Catalina Express. Upon entering the hotel we were warmly greeted and escorted to our room. Once in the beautiful room, the staff took the time to explain the features, gave us a welcome book with coupons and made sure we had no questions about what to do...
