Paying for location, not comfort
Liked the location, liked the storage for the baggage, the terrace was lovely
Curtains had holes, AC didn’t work; no one was at the front desk at noon when we arrived, room was not aesthetically pleasing
Able to store luggage before and after we checked out. Less than 5 minute walk to town. 10 minute walk to ferry. Basic room good deal. Staff very nice and helpful -thank you!
The location was great! It was right in the middle of everything. Easy to find. Was Clean and had a home-y vibe. The patio on the roof is a great place to get a view of the whole island and for pictures too!
The windows didn't have curtains. Which is nice when it's during the day, but when the sun is hitting your face @ 5 a.m, not so much. Also, the room didn't have a heater which was inconvenient since the night got pretty chilly and also there were no warm blankets available in the room, Just the Bed sheets. Little Dissapointing.
Good but room for improvement
I like the hotel itself and the location, as well as the staff.
Fridge would be great!
The private patio was beautiful and it has an amazing room. It was also very nice that we could store our luggage there when we arrived early and the staff was very helpful.
Hotel rooms need a make over
Hotel property is pretty and convenient
Room was very dingy with paint coming off the walls, curtains with holes and poorly decorated.
Room with a (sideways) view
Our room was on the 5th floor. The room was clean and the balcony had an ok view of the ocean and the street below while standing sideways. The balcony was small but large enough to allow us to stand while our scuba gear dried out on the plastic chairs. The hotel is in a good location and it is very easy to walk around the area. We live in Northern California and the diving is ok in Catalina. We probably won't make another trip to Catalina, but if we do, we might consider staying here again since the rates were comparable to other hotels in the area.
The hotel is old and although the room was clean, it was incredibly dated and much smaller than the photos on the website made it appear. The room is a good value midweek but very overpriced on the weekend; however, the whole island is extremely overpriced, so exorbitant weekend rates are to be expected.
Back in time!!
It's unique ambience takes you back in time! The private deck was the best place to relax... The staff went above and beyond to make our 10th anniversary special...Kenny, Vicki, Miguel and Mark thank you for everything! !
Very clean and good location at a good price
Located in Avalon, Hotel St. Lauren is by the ocean, within a 5-minute walk of Catalina Island and Catalina Island Museum. Featured amenities include luggage storage, an elevator (lift), and coffee/tea in a common area.
