Researched this hotel on Trip Advisor and the reviews were spot on. The room was clean and comfortable. We booked the peek-a-boo queen and was able to view the hills and sea. The hotel is nicely tucked off the main drag. Will book again.

Nothing is far from anything here, but we realized quickly, you don't want to be on Crescent St, where the noise can interfere with your enjoyment. We were a few blocks back, just up from the museum. Ask for a room on an upper floor - you'll have to walk the steps, but it's quiet and most have some view.... More

Great location, right next to the newly built museum, which has lots of interesting interesting history about Catalina island. The hotel location is only 2 mins walk away from ocean front and downtown. My husband and I spent our anniversary at Casa Mariquita and had a great time! very professional staff. room is clean, free wifi and breakfast.

As frequent travelers, it is a rare event to leave a negative review. However, out of respect for future potential travelers, we felt compelled to leave the following comments. Upon entering our room, we noticed the door was unlocked and left slightly open. Upon returning, after a great day exploring Catalina Island, we immediately noticed that our towels were draped...

Great hotel to stay: good customer service, great bed and even with pretty nice continental breakfast. Front desk staffs are locals who live on the island and know all the nice little things and what is happening on the island. They also gave me a lot of tips as where to eat. All in all, nicely run hotel.

Stayed here when on island for a wedding. The hotel was clean and was in a good location. It is great if u want to spend less money and still stay in a descent place close to town. It is up a small hill, so u may get a nice view. Drawbacks - room was small and lots of stairs... More

Overlooking the harbor, including breakfast, with a waterfront terrace, we loved our spacious room and everything about this place. Can't wait to get back. This is near the center of Avalon, so it is easy to get everywhere from here

We enjoyed the hotel but there is NO elevator. No pool either. The breakfast is nice. I don't understand why there is a 100 dollar breakage fee. We didn't break anything. Nice but we'll probably stay somewhere else when we go to Catalina again. The bill was a few pennies short of 700.00 for just 2 nights.
