What's not to love about this place? Spectacular location, devoted staff, terrific breakfasts and lunches, very limited number of guests and everything included-Your personal golf cart, snacks and banana splits 24/7. Don't miss the pet cemetery halfway down the road into Avalon with grave markers including "Will-you were a great fish" and "Hamzilla-2000-2002 ,devoted husband, father of 16." and his... More

I don't think I can add anymore or any different accolades than what has already been said about this most perfect inn on Catalina. What I can say is that it's the people who work at the inn that really make it a special place. Marlene, Deanna, Catherine and Carol made our stay so perfect we will never stay anyplace... More

When contemplating a special place to go for my 50th birthday, my partner and I chose to spend a night on Catalina Island and stay at the Inn on Mt. Ada, in part because of the spectacular Trip Advisor reviews. To put it mildly, expectations were exceeded. It's like staying at a rich relative's house, whom you really like. The... More
