GOOD – I've lived in Northern California for 6 years -- Finally, I got myself over to the Catalina Islands for a mini-vacation trip and so thrilled I chose Hermosa Hotel! This hotel has a very down home personality, clean rooms, nice views of the residential neighborhood, close to everything (but still on a quiet block), very safe and your ferry reservations are taken care of along with your hotel reservation! Great stay!
great service – I was grateful for Steven Bishops sense of humor and willingness to explain the reality of the situation even during a time when my emotional state was at its peak. I was so pleased with his services that, over the years I have referred two of my friends to him for representation in their divorce cases and would recommend him to anyone in need of a divorce attorney.
Great service.... – The hotel is very conveniently located in Metropole Avenue. It's not up a hill, unlike some of the hotels around Avalon, but be aware that there are many steps to climb. It's all of a minute's walk from Crescent Avenue and Casino Way, Avalon's main streets, with their shops and cafes. Mark, the manager, and the staff were all friendly, welcoming and helpful, and the stay just what we wanted for a budget overnighter (it came to about $56 each). I have no complaints at all. Yes, I'm sure it gets noisier in the peak season, but I wouldn't go to the island then anyway; it's shoulder-to-shoulder crowds! For a simple place to leave one's luggage and get a comfortable night's sleep, I certainly recommend the Hermosa Hotel.
Great service – I love the Hermosa Hotel, Mindy and the rest of the gang do there best to make sure your stay is wonderful. I only stay at the Hermosa Hotel the price is great the rooms are clean.Book in advance they fill up quick. You won't be disappointed .
Nice Staff – I stayed at the Hermosa Hotel several times over the years and have really come to love it. This is a small older quaint place which was built in the late 1800’s. They are the most diver friendly hotel on the island, offering a gear wash station, discounts with partner dive shops and got out of their way to throw lessons in!!!
Great Deal – I cannot say enough about the Hermosa Hotel. Both my Aunt and myself care for my Grandmother and never get a break. My Uncle came in to take over for a week and even though we couldn’t afford it, I hopped online and found a great deal at the Hermosa. The entire staff walked us through the reservation and we spent a great week at the hotel!!!
Simple and clean – Granted The Hermosa is no Hilton, but its not meant to be ... nor does it pretend to be ...
The personnel was kind and courteous the owner friendly ... the cottages were simple.. clean free of clutter... Wifi was available in the lobby
overall a very nice hotel for a very reasonable price..
Every year – My wife and I have been staying at the Hermosa Hotel and Cottage nearly every summer for a decade now and love the place. We're well-traveled, spoiled are lucky enough to have lived abroad or vacationed in some of the world's great places--Bali, Tuscany and Liguria and Umbria, Mexico, Virgin Islands--and we wouldn't stay anywhere else on Catalina (which is, by the way, the cheapest trip to the Mediterranean any West Coaster can take). Do we stay there just because it's cheap? Sure, but that's not the main reason: It's "period" Catalina, its funkiness is history, and the point of going to Catalina, for us anyway, is to get away from the fast-food-contemporary/franchise-hotel lifestyle of the mainland. Besides, it's central located in Avalon--everything within an easy walk--and the staff is as friendly and efficient as the staff at Johnny Rocket's on Melrose.
