The room was clean, comfortable, and nicely furnished. Add a surprisingly good breakfast, complimentary wine tasting, and a very convenient location made this hotel a joy to stay. There's no pool or exercise room, but both are unnecessary with the hotel right on the water and with abundance of outdoor activities in Catalina.

The hotel is.located on the water front on the Main Street. So it made for a convenient location for shopping, restaurants, golf cart rental and the tour plaza. Very easy walking distance from the pier. The hotel is old but has been updated and has a great courtyard for just relaxing. The continental breakfast was very good and was fresh... More

This hotel is an older property, as are most of the properties on Avalon (building is heavily restricted). Right across the street from the beach, convenient to the ferry terminal and downtown without being right in the middle of the bar scene. It has been meticulously refurbished and is very well maintained. Beds are very comfortable, even for someone like... More

Living in LA Catalina/Avalon provides a European escape with the convenience of a ferry ride. However during peak season the hotels are all $200-300+. I recently came and stayed here in December for a TV production and couldn't have been more pleased. Aside from modern mini duct AC, flat screen TV and a comfy bed the fire pit provided for... More

We arrived on the Island for the Annual Avalon 50 mile Run . My husband booked this hotel based on ratings and reviews, we were not disappointed. Situated right across from the beach, it's a quaint, peaceful hotel. Some rooms have little patios with comfy chairs, there's lounge chairs in a nice garden setting in the middle of the property....

We were looking for a tranquil, sweet hotel for our family of four and we found it. The Pavilion exceeded our expectations. The rooms were lovelier and comfier than anticipated. The location is right across from the Green Pier so you are centrally located. A word of caution: My only issue was that I had requested connecting rooms when I... More

Excellent customer service skills from this hotel, very kind, polite and professional. We arrived via ferry and they had a bell man waiting to take our bags to hotel. Arrived at 11am so we had some time to kill. Bags were waiting in room for us once room was ready. Made the check-in process a breeze! Hotel itself you can... More

I love this place! We recently stayed for the 2nd time and as before, we absolutely loved it. This was probably our 12th-15th visit to Avalon. We are a couple in our late 40's who enjoy golf, dining and visiting the pubs. One thing we especially enjoy in a hotel is having outdoor space, which is a rare find in... More

This is not a hotel, but a motel. I agree with most of the positive reviews on this site, but I believe this clarification is necessary. Pros: Nice staff Nicely appointed grounds Good breakfast (for a motel) Central location (couldn't be better) Cons: Rooms too small, not even queen size beds in many rooms. Internet access only usable for e-mail,... More
