Excellent location...friendly staff. Would recommend to anyone; however, if stairs are a problem would not recommend as it is two flights up and no elevator. Cookies at night and decent continental breakfast.

Hi everyone, My husband and I will be celebrating our 44th wedding anniversary this month and will be staying at the Vista Del Mar Hotel in Catalina. Can you give me a suggestion for the best rooms on the second floor? I don't necessarily have to see the beach in the room, as i think we might want the quiet more, but any experience with rooms would be appreciated. Thank you so much in advance. LAdancer
Hello LAdancer, My fiancé and I stayed in Courtyard Deluxe room. It was the 2nd room closest to the beach front view; and was very quiet. It would also depends on which days you book your room. Overall, it's a superb hotel and whichever room you get, it will worth your stay. Have fun!!!

what is the nightly price for this hotel
Depends on the room and time of year. If you call they can give you all the details. When we stayed the rates for courtyard was 195 per night The courtyard deluxe was around 225 per night. The ocean view can be 400+ depending on time of year.

How much does the ocean view suite usually run per night?
You would have to contact Vista Del Mar directly as their rates change according to the season. If you want to sit all day and view the ocean these suites are nice especially if you want a large room. You also have the same view any time when sitting in their open air lobby area. When staying in any room it is only a few steps to down stairs where you can immediately sit on the beach itself and have a wonderful view of the ocean, pier, and shops.
