A friends(4couples) trip to Avalon, was fantastic. The staff were very helpful and polite, especially the two young ladies behind the front desk! Breakfast is fantastic and if you get there by 4:30, wine and cheese...life is good at the Pavilion!

I have been going to Avalon for 47 years and I have to say this was the Best Trip Ever. The moment Roberto checked us in, I knew I made the right choice. I have always rented a house on the island but decided to try something different. I wish i thought of this years ago. Not only are the... More

We (2 adults-2 children) stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Staff at hotel was extremely friendly and we were happy to find out that we already could check-in at 1.30pm when we arrived earlier as expected. Location of the hotel is very good, room was clean but double beds were on the small side, breakfast was good. Only downside... More

Easy access to restaurants and shopping. The staff is excellent and the rooms are clean and comfortable.....great linens! They serve a nice Continental Breakfast which can be eaten inside or out on the patio. Enjoy your choice of breads, juices or coffee. Then head across the walkway to the beach or relax on a lounge in the garden. Hope to... More

We loved our recent stay at the Pavilion, and would definitely return. The grounds were beautiful and quiet, though right in the middle of Crescent Ave with all of the shops and restaurants. It is also directly across from the beach. Best of all were the little extras...turn down service with chocolates; wine and cheese reception; and a fantastic continental... More

My husband and I just returned from a night in Avalon and chose the Pavilion based on reviews and it's amenities and price. I pride myself on making good hotel choices, I'm a nerd about it since I want to enjoy my stay and I hate when I make a bad pick, which I have in the past. So we... More

PROS: -Great location. -Beautiful grounds with comfortable patio seating, a firepit and lush greenery. -Friendly and accommodating staff. -Pretty, well maintained and comfortable room. CONS: -As several guests informed me, I was also misled into thinking there's a pool here. We thought some of the pictures showed a pool by the building. It... More

Dear Garine2, Thanks for sharing your experience at the Pavilion Hotel. Our apologizes for the confusion concerning the pool. We have realized that our effort to highlight the new Island Spa Catalina has caused a great deal of confusion, and we have removed these images from our listing. I wish I had been aware of your mobility issue when you... More

Excellent property - Location is right on the main street. My daughter and I took a 'mother/daughter' trip to Catalina Island and stayed at this property. We had a ground floor room with a private lanai surrounded by lush green. The property staff was very friendly, helpful and courteous. This hotel is almost always booked to capacity so my recommendation... More

We were married 20 years ago on Catalina. We stayed at the Pavilion once before a long time ago. We heard about the remodeling & decided to give it another try. What an amazing weekend! We were treated like royalty, the employees were all friendly & attentive to our every need. The breakfasts were more than expected & the wine... More
