I was originally booked to one of the 5th floor rooms under the 6th floor deck which was a disaster. Posted hours are 9am to 8pm but they do not lock the door apparently as i was awakened at 11:30 am and before 6:30 am by people tramping and moving furniture. I called around 8am-ish and asked to be moved...

We didn't pay much for this room so we also didn't expect much. While the rooftop deck commands a beautiful view of Avalon the rooms are in DIRE need of updating. Check-in and check-out were a breeze and took zero time. The room was very clean and that's definitely what matters most. But...man. Old. Really old. The furniture and carpets...

I stayed here for the Catalina Marathon. Rooms were huge for Catalina with a large bathroom and closet. The bathroom is outdated but for the price and location it was perfect. My room had a view of the mountains and from the table and chair I could see the ocean. The staff was amazing; they put on coffee at 3:45am...

We stayed one night at the St. Lauren. The room was comfortable and clean. The roof top deck is a plus. We had evening snacks on the roof top deck and enjoyed the view. Coffee in the morning was very good. Because this hotel is at the top of a steep hill it could be a problem for some but...

My husband and I typically will only stay at 3 star hotels, so we expected a certain standard. We decided to try the St. Lauren as it was a reasonable price, 3 star, and good location. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location and historic appearance of the exterior did not disappoint. However, when we walked in our room,...

The hotel was very clean and well kept. The hotel staff was extremely friendly, and helpful. The furnishings were outdated but were still functional. I liked that they offered a room with a king bed and pull out futon bed; the room would technically sleep 4 which is great when sharing a room with scuba buddies. It was very centrally...

Cons: This place has some of the smallest bedrooms we have ever seen. The rooms were dingy, and didn't feel clean. Super outdated and no amenities to speak of. Sorry, they have coffee in the am.
