Hello. We’re trying to put together a rather spontaneous trip to Catalina, mid-September. We’re finding that hotels are rather booked up, or extremely expensive. And many hotels don’t have favorable reviews. We found one, called Casa Mariquita that seems okay. Does anyone know this hotel? Would you recommend it? Or any other hotels in Avalon, we’re looking at $300 or less complete. Thank you.

We've never stayed at this hotel but have walked or driven past it many times. It' in a good location, nor far from the main part of Avalon. And the reviews on TA seem good. So you're heading to Catalina after your trip to Kauai?

Actually, we’re considering canceling our Kauai trip since the governor of Hawaii just told tourists to stay away and things look bad there. This trip down the southern California coast is our back up plan. We’re about 60/40 right now to cancel Hawaii, very disappointing but we’re taking it day by day, still hoping that somehow will be able to go. But this is my celebration trip after retiring next week, so we want to have some back up plan that feels celebratory. And come up with it quick!

Our favorite and where we stay each visit is The Pavilion Hotel. It probably is booked but you never know.

The amenities are good, free breakfast, wine and cheese in the evening around the fire pit, locker storage if you have a later boat out.

We like the patios and grass courtyard, lounges and tables and umbrellas. After an excursion walk back to rest.

Good luck.
