The Pavilion Hotel is a gem right in the middle of Avalon right on the beach. Convenient to all the restaurants and shops. Loved the wine and cheese hour from 4:30-5:30. Also great breakfast. The room was a little small but very cozy- we had a king size bed with plenty of room for a roll away. Perfect 2 night... More

My husband is handicap and uses a walker within the room & wheelchair everywhere else. Your handicap room was perfect for us, as he slept in the single next to the wall for safety & I slept great in my own double bed. The handicap bathroom was one of the best we had in our travels with plenty of room... More

The service at Pavillion equals any 5 star hotel! Wine and cheese around the firepit, one minute walk to bars, restaurants, beach, golf carts! Great ambience! We loved this place and will bring friends and family next time to enjoy the experience.

Wonderful 2 night stay. Staff is very attentive. Great location, beautiful grounds, nice rooms. Wine and cheese social every afternoon is a nice extra. Free breakfast and wi-fi. Highly recommended place to stay on Catalina.

This is lovely motel complex. Courteous desk staff, clean rooms. Unfortunately they billed us for nights that we didn't stay there. Have contacted them 4 times to straighten out the error as yet they have not had the courtesy to respond to out messages

This hotel is very quaint, had an excellent view of the harbor, a great staff and a beautiful courtyard area. They include wine and cheese every evening and breakfast every morning with your hotel rate. The rooms are small, but cozy, clean and quiet. I would definitely return to this hotel for vacation.

We chose to visit Catalina during Thanksgiving break due to an expiring Groupon for the express. We decided to book this hotel for the location. Honestly, it would be hard to stay anywhere else after this experience. From the minute we arrived we were treated special. The room was very nice with a nautical theme that had shutters that opened... More
