Hermosa Hotel keeps it simple for you… clean rooms at low prices and DOG FRIENDLY! Our friendly, active staff enjoys all the island has to offer and we will get all you adventure-seekers dialed in with our “locals scoop” to make sure you have the most fun possible during your island visit! We are Catalina Island's friendly, economy hotel located in the heart of Avalon, just a short 10-15 minute walk from the boat landing. The Historic Hermosa has been serving guests of the island since 1896 and our rooms are still small and simple, with some of the lowest rates on the island.

Hello everyone! Sorry for the late response. The third night will always depend on the room type you are in. Our Ocean View room is an extra $75/night and then $300 for the third night. It also depends on if you're adding a weekday night or weekend night. Please give us a call to check availability and get a specific price quote over the phone!

"Some rooms have a kitchenette, but keep in mind this will make a small room even smaller but it is fun."
"The higher floors."
"The cottages are separate from the hotel rooms, and seem much quieter than average."
"Room OV3 has a deck and is way up at the top if you are ok with climbing stairs. Romms 41-46 are also super cute little cottages."
"Go during the week in the off season if you want a better deal."
