This hotel is not right on the main street of Avalon, however it is within walking distance to all of the major places you will be visiting. You can easily walk to this hotel from the main boat dock in about 10-15 minutes, taking in some of the fantastic views of the town. The staff was friendly, the room was...

This was my first trip to Catalina, and having forgotten that my trip was during spring break, I'd put off booking the hotel. The Hotel St. Lauren was the only hotel available... I read all of the reviews on Tripadvisor and wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised! The hotel is in a great location. Right next to the grocery...

I booked this hotel based on decent reviews and the best price I could find a month or two before our 3 night stay.

I have stayed here 3 times, I have neither been thrilled nor disappointed with the St. Lauren. I stay here because it's the cheapest hotel I can find. The employees have been mostly polite, and the rooms are decent sized. They aren't quite as well maintained/clean as they could be, otherwise I'd give them a 4/5. The location is right...
