The Pavilion Hotel on Catalina Island is the place to stay. Staff is wonderful, they will take your luggage as you get off the boat. Rooms are small but clean. The breakfast has many choices and opened till 10:30 a.m. This place has the best location in town. Wonderful fire pit that is a perfect place for wine and cheese in the afternoon. Well stocked DVD selection for free. Another good place for DVD's is the public library.
