This place was next to the Catalina museum short walk up from the main shopping. The staff was nice. Quiet place. The double beds were comfortable. The room size had too much furniture for the square footage. Was a bit tight for two. Would not recommend the two beds for any more than 2. But really in Catalina, quiet sleeping...

Like most of the hotels in Catalina Island it was old. But it was very clean. The breakfast was minimal but sufficient. One good thing is that I was able to sleep since I have insomnia! The front desk attendants were nice and helpful. It had a very good location and walking distance to most of the attractions. A small...

This hotel is horrendous! DO NOT STAY HERE! My daughter and I stayed here during Easter weekend. The photos are misleading and descriptions are inaccurate. The room was incredibly small and the furniture was way too big for the room. You could barely move. The hotel states that it is only a 10 minute walk from the Ferry, but what...

The WORST, RUDEST front desk customer service experience I've EVER had. They lie about their booking policies, then blame you for it. Brilliant. They don't understand how to work with credit card companies, and argue about it. Flat our refused to phone my credit card company even after i [attempted, since she wouldn't stop talking...ever.] explained that they ASKED them...

This was an odd little hotel with rooms badly in need of renovation. The floors are cold tile and we could hear the people above us walking sounding like a pack of elephants. There are no elevators so if you have any luggage it is a haul up many sets of tiled stairs. The ice machine made loud noises all...

We were really lucky to find this delightful hotel for our first trip to Catalina Island. It's the perfect location for an easy walk from the ferry and everything else in Avalon. The property is nestled tightly against the hill with great views of the bay from the upper floors. It's not your standard box style building. There's stairwells leading...

This was a family vacation for my son's 21st birthday. We had a room with 2 queens (the cost was around 190 after taxes) a small fridge and tiny bathroom. There is a tiny lobby on the first floor where they serve a small continental breakfast ( hard boiled eggs, pastry, juice, coffee,etc. ) There wasn't a microwave or coffee...

My wife really enjoyed our stay at Casa Mariquita. We thought it was a really great deal for such a wonderful hotel. The location was very close to the Catalina Express and was next to everything. Casa Mariquita is next door to the new museum and across the street from the tour plaza. Our room (18) was clean and cozy....

Our family had a WONDERFUL stay at the Casa Mariquita Hotel. It's in a fantastic location that is minutes walk from the beach and the main Avalon plaza.
