I had a hard time choosing a hotel in Avalon, based on the information on the web. Also, no one I knew had ever spent any time here. So I called a few places and was really impressed by the helpfulness and friendliness of the people I spoke with at the Catalina Island Company. They offered a "fall package" which...

Just got back from our second stay at the Pavilion Hotel. The place is like an oasis. Just steps from the beach and all the restaurants and shops in Avalon, but once on the property you feel like your on a secluded island. The staff is so welcoming. The atmosphere so relaxing. The wine and cheese offered everyday is excellent!...

I stayed with my family for some much-needed relaxation, and it was great. The hotel room, though small, was well laid out and extremely clean and updated. We spent quite a bit of time at the garden/patio area playing games or reading. The continental breakfast was excellent, and saved us some money as well.

Beautifully appointed rooms, outstanding service, perfect location and great setting. We have been coming to this hotel for 35 years and it gets better all the time. They have added a breakfast buffet and afternoon wine and cheese tasting. Just adds to the ambience.
