For that price and photos I'd expected much better result. Reception works only couple of hours and they even cannot provide with transportation from island. Famous roof top terrace was closed at 16 pm, when I came there with just purchased stakes. I couldn't find breakfast within my stay at all.

The nice people are the best part of this place. The room was super small (I had to share the queen bed with my daughter), not well vaccumed and no shampoo until I asked and got it on the second day. The rooftop was nice, although the ashtrays were not clean and neither were the tables. No breakfast or coffee...

I stayed here for a business trip. The room is a decent size for an older hotel. The bathroom is large and it was clean. The down side is that the fridge is VERY tiny, there is no microwave and the windows are single pane. You can hear all outside noise, but they do provide earplugs if needed. The view...

I was on the fence about this hotel because it had as many bad reviews as it did good. It had the amenities I was looking for so I decided to try it. I am glad I did. The Seacrest Inn is small but very personable. I totally felt at home and relaxed. The double jacuzzi tub was perfect. The...

I was excited that the room that I booked looked big and newly redone, I don t mind paying more for that. I was looking forward to the birthday discount and the breakfast vouchers that I thought I would be getting. NOT! It does not state that you have to call them directly, to get the discount. And was told...

I was very disappointed to find that the breakfast advertised not the website had been discounted. This was especially annoying as the promotional material that they were still using at the hotel mentioned that it was part of the package. Bad marketing and customer service. The general cleanliness of the public spaces was lacking. Pop cans and ashtrays not cleaned...

purchased two LivingSocial coupons for $160.00, reported to be valued at $230.00 for a 1 night stay at the Seacrest Inn. We brought another couple with us for an overnight trip to the island, and we were all extremely disappointed in the old, small, outdated, ill appointed rooms we received. We are all experienced travelers and the accomodations were not...

I was very pleased with our stay at the Catalina Island Seacrest Inn. The manager was very friendly and helpful, getting us checked in and holding our bags until the room was ready (we showed up early). Location is prime, just a few blocks from the main shopping/dining/beach area. The rooms were clean, and well stocked. The air conditioning worked...

Stayed for my birthday and discovered a truly wonderful 1st night discount for those celebrating birthdays (2 night min). Check-in was very friendly/pleasant/easy. Room was clean and incredibly efficient, with a small air conditioner, and comfortable bed. We did not like that they stored the spare roll-away bed in our room. The bathroom was the smallest I've ever seen...truly. We...

My family and I stay in Catalina every year and have stayed in many of the hotels. I have been going myself since I was little so Catalina means a lot to me. This was the most expensive hotel we have ever stayed at and it unfortunately was not worth the price. My husband and I went for the first...
