The original hotel we booked was disgusting and not fit to be open for business.

We booked the room at 10pm and were able to check in the very... More

So many hotels aren't well maintained when they are old. This is the exception. The grounds are great. The hotel is spotless and has every possible amenity. The check in was flawless and gracious. Wine and cheese in the evening and light breakfast this morning.

Our friends who stayed in other hotels came to visit us on the patio and saw our room. They were so impressed and vowed that if they came again, Pavilion would be where they would stay. As... More

We stayed at the Pavilion Hotel for Jazz Fest and really enjoyed the property. The location is perfect, the courtyard area is very beautiful and relaxing and we had a seating area outside our room for relaxing outside mornings and evenings. The staff at the hotel were very welcoming and friendly. We ate breakfast at the hotel everyday and found... More

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... More
