We got room number 209 it was very small, 2 full size beds, and it is the furthest room from the lobby right of a very busy street. In the morning at 6 am you will hear the noise from the street. Breakfast was avarege at most, coffee, tea, juice, fruit, meat, not so good pastries and bread. Not enough... More

Fabulous breakfast, steps from the beach, and wine and cheese in the afternoon----What could be better. Oh and the beds are super comfortable. The hotel meets each arriving boat and takes luggage to the hotel where it is stored until your room is ready. Then will take luggage to the boat when it is time to leave.

We stayed for a Sunday and Monday night. Our family booked 3 rooms to celebrate a 75th birthday. Our room was quaint, clean and inviting. We really enjoyed the complimentary wine and cheese hour (4:30-5:30 pm) as well as the breakfast on Monday. Both were above what I expected. The staff was very helpful and professional. I would definitely come... More

Due to this I had many concerns with staying here or what to expect being as I had not been to Catalina before. I reached out to Robert at Catalina hotels with my concerns who QUICKLY responded and resolved these. I can... More

We spent our first anniversary at the Pavilion on Catalina Island. The hotel has a great location right across from the beach. The room, staff and breakfast were wonderful. We also loved the garden area where we could relax between activities. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Lovely hotel in the heart of Avalon, right off of the main drag. The staff was extremely friendly The wine hour and breakfast buffet were a sign of a true thank you to their customers. They don't go cheap here and it was noted. The rooms were clean, but not spectacular in design. There isn't a pool on-site, but there... More

This unlikely former motel has been upgraded to provide a significantly more upmarket experience right in the center of town. The staff and service are lovely (all smiles and genuinely helpful), the rooms clean and the breakfast and wine taste super, especially with the addition of a barrista for a morning expresso- what a nice touch. Plenty of space for... More

This is an excellent hotel for what it is...a small hotel, on a small island. The rooms are very clean, the beds are very comfortable, and the location is easily within walking distance of pretty much everything in Avalon. I enjoyed the small comforts such as an evening reception, quiet outdoor sunning spots, and the fact they stored our bags... More

Great hotel in a convenient location. Enjoyed the wine and cheese hour and also the fire pit at night (fire out out at midnight by hotel staff so plan accordingly). We had a nice quiet room in the first floor with a walk out patio area. Would definitely stay here again. Stop by the Marlin bar while in town, fun... More

I visit Catalina several times a year and one of its charms is the old time feel of the town of Avalon. However, sometimes you just want to stay somewhere that doesn't feel old, and the Pavilion Hotel is just that! The landscapes throughout the property are beautiful and very well kept. The staff is great, and they are always... More
