Staff at the Pavilion Hotel are remarkable. It is centrally located and close to the fun things to do in Avalon. Great place for people watching while you enjoy wine and cheese, which they provide. very comfortable room and clean grounds. The view from the suites is amazing.

By the luck of the draw we ended up at the Pavilion Hotel. It was fabulous. Literally 14 steps to the Beach, right in the heart of everything. We knew it was the right place when we stepped onto the pier from the ferry and there were 2 Pavilion staff there to greet us (and the other guests). They took...

Avalon Pavilion hotel is outstanding in every ways except the room. Basic room, noisy plumbing, if you can get past that. This place is 5 stars. Great staff, extremely helpful and smiley, great breakfast, great wine and cheese event in the afternoon, great ground, great plants and great views.

Anyone visiting Avalon will notice the Pavilion Hotel, located steps from everything and entrance right off the "boardwalk." It's beautifully maintained and while compact, the gardens are lovely with a firepit, seating for outdoor breakfast, and a few chaises for relaxing. The relatively high prices have deterred us from booking before, but on a recent trip we decided to try...

I loved staying here. It is within walking distance of the pier and main island activities and shops. The breakfast included is high quality and you can look out towards the water as you eat. The property has only the walkway and the beach separating you from the water. It is clean, has a fire pit, lounging area and if...

The Pavilion Hotel is the BEST place to stay in Avalon. From the greeting at the front desk to the beautiful botanical gardens, this restful, quiet, peaceful establishment offers a visitor everything they could possibly desire. The STAFF goes beyond by always accommodating what is requested, sometimes even before asked. You are greeted as you get off the boat (Juan...

Our stay at the Pavilion Hotel was good up until the last day. The staff at the front desk were very helpful and friendly. The wine and cheese was much better then the breakfast. Staff serving the wine and cheese were friendlier and more accommodating then the staff serving breakfast. The fire pit was wonderful when it was on. The...

Dear Tafsnap, Thank you for choosing the Pavilion Hotel. I personally inspected your guest room and spoke to all of the housekeeping staff. We were unable to locate your cell phone. It's possible that it was not left at the hotel. I did leave you a voicemail so that we could discuss the situation, but have not received a return...

We took an overnight trip to the island for my husbands birthday. Wasn't sure what to expect of catalina or this hotel but man were we impressed.

My husband and I have stayed at several different hotels in Avalon over the years. By far this has been the best. We have never returned to another to date!
