The hotel has such a wonderful small town, quaint feel. The ambiance of the hotel feels like a throwback in time to the 50s Beach town. Do not expect fancy high tech fanciness, That is not what this hotel is about. It stays true to...More

About
Description
Hermosa Hotel keeps it simple for you… clean rooms at low prices and DOG FRIENDLY! Our friendly, active staff enjoys all the island has to offer and we will get all you adventure-seekers dialed in with our More “locals scoop” to make sure you have the most fun possible during your island visit! We are Catalina Island's friendly, economy hotel located in the heart of Avalon, just a short 10-15 minute walk from the boat landing. The Historic Hermosa has been serving guests of the island since 1896 and our rooms are still small and simple, with some of the lowest rates on the island. Less
