We were in Catalina for less than 24 hours, and the Pavilion hotel was the perfect place to be for our quick trip! We loved sitting on the patio overlooking the water while enjoying a nice spread of drinks and snacks laid out by the hotel. The room was very comfortable, and the hotel is centrally located, which was very...

We went to Catalina to see the Dale Chuily exhibit at the beautiful new Catalina Island Musuem. We choose the Pavilion Lodge as our hotel and we left very happy and satisfied. The grounds are simply gorgeous, we really felt like we were on a tropical island. The staff is professional and kind and helpful even addressing a noise issue...

The Pavilion Hotel is a wonderful getaway near the water. It has a wonderful green space in the middle of the hotel, patio area, and fire pit. The hotel serves a complimentary full breakfast and has a wine and cheese tasting every afternoon - wonderful deal. The rooms are neat and clean, small refrigerator and all the other normal amenities....

We booked the hotel and ferry package through Pavilion. They took care of getting our tickets to us via email. Very easy. Check-in was fast and pleasant with Shannon. She was a college student from Leeds England on an internship for her hospitality major. Although we were early, our room 321 was ready, maybe because they knew our ferry arrival...

My first trip to Avalon, and the Pavilion hotel was nothing if not charming. Very clean, friendly and helpful staff, very island/beach bungalow feel. Wine and cheese reception each night for their guests and beautifully landscaped gardens. Beds are comfortable, and the hotel offers a discount at the Avalon Grill steakhouse. Of course in Avalon, pretty much everything is walking...

Well, I must admit I was a little surprised to find this little gem of a hotel. As others have stated, they have a complimentary breakfast, evening wine and cheese reception (quality cheese and wine for complimentary reception), fire pit, and a nice center garden area with lounge chairs. The rooms are clean and fine, but I'm giving them a...

The only reason I didn't give this five stars is because the bedroom and the bathroom need a little TLC. It is a little tired on the inside. The grounds are beautiful. The people that work there are very friendly and very nice. There is a free breakfast and there is wine and cheese at night. It was very lovely...
