It is important, I think, for the weekend getaway to be affordable. A weekend getaway is not a honeymoon; it is something you want to be able to do all the time. Perhaps every weekend. Price is at a premium. Avalon and Hermosa make a good cheap weekend, particularly in the off season (before March).
My boyfriend and I went to Catalina on Valentine's Day. It was fantastic. We stayed here because the price was unbeatable -- it was $35 for a comfortable room with shared bath. The shared bath was not a problem because the bathroom was shared with only the room next door, which was empty. The only downside to visiting Hermosa in the off season was that there was no heat in the room, so it was a little cold at night. This was alright, though, because the staff gave us extra blankets, free cofffee, and were generally helpful. We only stayed the one night, but they let us keep our bags there in storage all day. The hotel was right next to the super market, too, so when we realized we had forgotten some supplies, like a camera (!), we just popped down there and bought them. It was a great experience, and we will definitely return.
