We only managed one night at the hotel because they were busy. Unfortunately we arrived to late to sample dinner at the hotel but breakfast was good. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have had in a hotel and the amenities were first class.

This is a good hotel for the most part, but certainly not high end. Rooms toward the back of the property are quiet enough. Things are clean, or at least were during my last stay. Staff were friendly. Having worked as a travel agent, I feel I should know about quality levels of hotels and their rooms. I would expect... More

I was looking forward to staying here and my first impression was favourable. It is a short walk from the ferry, and there is a view of the ocean from the seating area near reception. The room was nicely decorated with reproductions of old Catalina Island tourism posters. The garden area was very pretty and we enjoyed the complimentary wine... More

I stayed here for a quick getaway weekend with my fiancee. I had just flew in from the cold Midwest state of Chicago and caught the Catalina Express ferry to the Island. I was glad when I realized that I didn't have far to walk far from the port landing to the hotel. It was on the main street and... More

Juan happily checked in our luggage right off the boat, which enabled us to start enjoying our 24th wedding anniversary asap! Guillermo checked us in quickly. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Continental Euro breakfast and Starbucks coffee was very nice. Wine and cheese around the fire pit in the evenings were very enjoyable, meeting many... More

Best value on the island, possibly the best hotel period. I needed two good nights of sleep for scuba adventures and the Pavilion delivered. While other divers experienced the restless nights of loud pipes, thin walls and hard beds, I slept in complete peace after 11pm and woke up to wonderful coffee and service. Then the 4:30 wine and cheese... More

Have stayed here several times in the past. Most recently the end of October just for 1 night. The staff are wonderful. The upkeep of the property is impeccable. They upgraded our room upon check in which is always a big plus!! We absolutely love the wine happy hour. They were kind enough to invite us back to the happy... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Modern feel, enjoyed the outdoor lounging areas, the fire pit, the complimentary wine/cheese happy hour, and the complimentary breakfast. Convenient located in walking distance to everything. Highly recommend this place for families and couples!

Nicely remodeled rooms with comfortable beds and nice linens. Rooms are small but we didn't mind as the seating areas under the Pavilion were comfortable and perfect for people watching. Couches, chairs and tables. Nice lounge chairs also spread throughout the lushly gardened courtyard that afforded some privacy. The wine/breakfast room is an included perk. Lots of fresh fruit, cereal,... More

Great cozy hotel close to the shops and restaurants. Nice breakfast provided. Morgan at the front desk was very nice and helpful which made for a pleasant stay as she was willing to help with anything we needed.
