We just returned from a wonderful relaxing stay at the Pavilion Hotel. The setting is lovely, right on the walkway and close to the ferry dock. We had a nice room, well appointed and totally comfortable. The gardens are beautiful and offer seats to enjoy the ambience. The daily wine and cheese was very well done, we thoroughly enjoyed sitting...

My fiance and I stayed here for our 2 year anniversary. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They have free breakfast in the morning and a complimentary cheese and wine hour in the afternoon (just as the sun is setting). They even upgraded our room! The bed was absolutely fantastic. We sunk right into it and fell asleep quickly....

I visited Catalina Island recently on another business trip, and my experience at this hotel was even better this time. Example: the airline broke the handle on my suitcase, and I needed a Phillips-head screwdriver to fix it. I asked Abraham on the staff if he had one on hand, and he didn't. He stopped what he was doing and...

A Nice room in a beautiful setting,comfortable, clean rooms. First floor has outside gardens. The outside pit at night is a nice community gathering spot. The library has a complimentary, healthy Breakfast and a happy hour with wine and cheese selections. Try the spa package for a relaxing weekend.

Rooms were small but very up to date The employees are awesome and very helpful. To me that is more important. I would recommend this hotel for older couples not for kids. We came in December I imagine in august it's not the same. I enjoyed my stay.

Perfectly located close to the dock, pier and all the great restaurants and bars in Avalon. The staff were amazing. The free wine and cheese every night from 4:30 to 5:30 was the best part of the experience. They even said when we checked out that if we were still here to come and enjoy the wine and cheese. First...

We recently spent a couple of nights in Avalon before the Thanksgiving holiday. It was our first trip to Catalina and we were pleased that good reviews had sent us to the Pavilion. We had a king room with patio near the back of the property which we enjoyed. The grounds are beautiful and very tropical feeling. There were several...

I have been staying at the Pavilion every summer for almost 20 years. It has always been a nice place to stay, but with recent renovations and upgrades is is definitely one of the nicest places to stay on the island. Located right on the main strip in Avalon, you are right in the middle of lots of shops, restaurants...
