This hotel is away from the somewhat crowded downtown of Avalon. It is so worth it. Nestled in the foothills of Avalon, the hotel is clean, the bathrooms are clean, the beds and pillows comfortable. The island has a very nice ocean breeze, so you can leave the window open at night, which we did. There is of course an...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

I reviewed a bunch of hotels before choosing Holiday Inn. This is a bit off the path but that makes it great because you don't have so much foot traffic. We upgraded our room since I did hear some negative feedback on the standard rooms and we were very impressed. It was a very nice room, large bathroom, a tub...

My wife and I visited Avalon, Santa Catalina, CA for two days this month. We checked in to the Holiday Inn Resort, asked the desk clerk for a room facing toward the ocean (even though it could not be seen). The clerk said none was available. He assigned us a room over the swimming pool. The only problem with the...

It was very nice. A bit worn on the outside of the room hallways, but of course the weather has a lot to do with that. The room was very, very clean, I loved the patio area. My grandaughters loved the pool and jacuzzi. The restaurant service was slow, only one waiter, but the food was great. They substituted Orange...

Try to check in early(1pm) but they had no rooms, however the receptionist got our number down and said she would call us as soon as a room was available. We got the call around 2:30pm, not bad, since check in was at 4pm. The hotel is about 15 minute walk from the shops, so its quiet & relaxing. Our...

Recently visited Catalina with my wife and friends for a birthday. Guest service is remarkable and rooms are really nice. Could not have picked a better place to stay at. The Hotel Manager was friendly and helpful and the restaurant on site was exquisite. Would definitely recommend this hotel!!!!

One of the most affordable and possibly picturesque hotels on Catalina Island is the former Catalina Canyon Resort. The pluses include having a place to stay that is away from the hustle/bustle of Avalon, it has one of the Islands only swimming pools, the grounds are attractive and the landscaping is outstanding. It has a decent restaurant but the hours...

We were pretty satisfied with our stay here. The staff was not the friendliest, and not rude either, but they were very accommodating. The hotel is in a quiet area of the island and the shuttle service makes it very easy to travel back and forth. The room was clean and spacious and the bathrooms were nicely done. The on-site...
