We enjoyed our stay here. It would have been nice to get our room a little earlier on arrival. The rooms were clean and the staff at the Naughty Fox were excellent. The bed was very comfortable. If we were to visit again we would request one of the rooms with a direct view of the harbor.

I had a credit from several years ago, with excursions and other benefits included. We were given boat voucher, which exceeded cost by $10.00 per person, but could only use credit for rooms. Bellanca would only allow me to use credit on cost of rooms. They would not schedule any excursions at all for us.

This is a great little hotel on Catalina. Its down at the end of the strip, so its a little further away than some other hotels... but still well within walking distance. They have a nice sun deck on the roof. Just be prepared for some stairs. I would stay here again.

The hotel is in a great location. It’s witching close proximity to everything in Avalon and has a great view of the harbor. We stayed in their “one of a kind” Ocean View Cabana room. The room itself was lovely and had plenty of space. The only reason I’m not giving it 5 stars is because of the the view and location of the room in the hotel. It’s on the ground level and when you don’t have people within a foot of your window walking by, there’s a taxis that likes to park right in front of the window. With the amount of people walking by you tend to always want the blinds closed for privacy, this is the only drawback. If it was up to me again, I would do an ocean view room on a higher floor or just do a regular room and enjoy the view from the rooftop deck. Other than that, the staff was wonderful and the food at the restaurant was impeccable!

Just stayed this past weekend for one night. Bellanca was the only property in its price range I could find that did not have a two night minimum stay on the weekend, so that was a plus. However, regarding this price range, there are some very nice properties, in great locations in Avalon, that are more upscale and plush with far better appointed guest rooms. Thus my 3 rating based on value to price. The Bellanca rooms are comfortable but very sparse, and there was no safe provided for valuables in the room. In addition, the slider bathroom door offers no privacy at all. Once your north of $400 a night, as stated above there are options. I would return to other properties or try a new one before returning to Bellanca. Having said that, the front desk staff are very nice and accommodating, the location is good, and the rooms are clean. If I couldn't find an alternative at this price point, I certainly would stay again.
