During my first visit to Catalina Island, I had the pleasure of staying at the Pavilion Hotel. I was told that the rooms and surrounding grounds had undergone a recent renovation, and it seemed as if the paint had yet to dry on the work. The room was extremely clean, well appointed, and came with everything an island visitor could... More

This is a nice hotel on Avalon. It's close to everything, the rooms and clean and comfortable, they have a nice continental breakfast with plenty of variety (including cold cuts and hard boiled eggs), and wine and cheese in the afternoon. But I think it's over priced. I spent almost $800 for two nights, though I grant it was an... More

My first overnight stay in Catalina. I stayed for 3 nights at the Pavillion, and am glad I chose this hotel. It's close to everything, and I love the courtyard. I had busy days, and was able to return to the hotel between activities. I was afraid of noise pollution, from the previous reviews, and when I was in my... More

Pavilion Hotel is an easy 5 minute walk from the ferry. Morgan the receptionist was very kind and immediately made us feel welcome. All of the staff was very friendly. Each evening they provide a complimentary wine and cheese hour! The wine and the cheese were both great and each night they switched the flavors up. The hotel is located... More

We loved this hotel ... rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff is friendly and accomodating. Wine and cheese hour? Perfect. We will definitely stay at the Pavillion next time we visit Catalina. It was great having a complimentary breakfast with ocean views.

Though the Pavilion will collect your luggage and deliver the same to the docks, it is the best hotel closest to the docks. Nice room, clean, lovely grounds, orange slices is the ice water (great for a hot day), Voss water with ice delivered to the room, sheets on the bed turned down and a chocolate. All evidence of a...

By Catalina Island's relaxed standards, this is a luxury hotel: It's comparably priced counterparts off the island would probably be 5 Star. This hotel is definitely not even 4 Star (nor do they claim to be). That said, it's worth the money, and one of the best options on the island due to surroundings, location, romantic setting, amenities, and service.... More
