This was our first time at the Pavilion. It was treat. The rooms were lovely and very clean. The bed was a dream, literally...we never slept better. I love the garden. It was quiet and peaceful. The patio was a great place to sit with morning tea and watch the world walk by. The coffee machine was my husband favor...

Could not be more pleased with our choice to stay at Pavilion Hotel! It was our (me and my husband) first time on the island, in celebration of our wedding anniversary. How we've never been to Catalina before, as California natives no less, is shocking! What an absolute gem and "escape" from reality! We took one of the earlier ferries...

Good hotel right in the heart of Avalon. Clean basic rooms. The breakfast is included but could be a little better. They offer wine and cheese every afternoon which is a nice touch. The best part about this hotel is the location.

Hotel is attractive, room is well appointed and situated right on the main mall, but quiet. Large bathroom counter with ample clothing storage. Bed and bedding was very comfortable. Staff at front desk were very friendly and helpful with reservations and general information about Catalina.

We went to Catalina for family get together graduation celebration. There were 4 families including ourselves and a gaggle of grandchildren. The staff were incredible and wonderfully accommodating with all of the grandchildren. It is a perfect location and even being on the main street it was quiet in the rooms and at night. There is a little seating area...

We stayed two nights at the Pavilion for my mother's birthday and her first visit to the island. It was an excellent choice. Very comfortable rooms, excellent service, a superior breakfast included and we enjoyed the free wine and cheese at 4:30pm in the beautiful, tranquil, lush courtyard area.

I recently stayed two days at the Pavillion Hotel in Avalon. My friend and I arrived at 11:30 and had facials scheduled so headed to the hotel to drop off our luggage. To our surprise they had our room ready so let us check in early. After our facials we returned to the hotel to a complimentary happy hour. We...

Best prize my husband has ever won in a golf tournament! Two nights at the Pavilion Hotel w/Scenic Tour (Charles) & Glass Bottom Boat (Sadie). What a relaxing getaway! The Pavilion Hotel is located on Crescent Ave. tucked in between Two's Co. of Avalon (jewelry & blown glass) and Luau Larry's (food, spirits, oyster bar). The lovely patio (where you...

The good news: The hotel is lovely and situated right across from the beach and pier. The staff were all very helpful and courteous. The grounds are beautiful, the room was quiet, the matresses were comfortable. The wine and cheese in the afternoon was excellent. The bad news: The room was nice but not spectacular, considering what we paid for...
