This Hotel was very nice. We had a garden room which was very nice. Hotel sits right across from the beach which is nice. They are within walking distance of everything downtown including the Casino Ballroom which is a short walk. Their Continental Breakfast is much more than that. They prepared different egg dishes, bacon, sausage, lots of different rolls... More

From the moment I checked in with my group of 50 people, we knew we were in the best of hands! Andrew Allen, the hotel operations manager and his wonderful staff made the check in a breeze and the staff had already placed our luggage (which got picked up from the Catalina Express terminal and delivered to the hotel) in...

Location is excellent. Reception is great. Once in a while the front desk gets a bit behind but service is excellent. Cheese selection is wonderful at happy hour. Breakfast is a MEAL not just pastry and go. Coffee is excellent as well. The turn down service with chocolate and water is so sweet as well. Helpful with what to do... More

Everything was great at the Pavilion from Check in to Check out.

Stayed here 2 times and have enjoyed the wonderful complimentary wine and cheese happy hour and breakfast (this year they added bacon, sausage and a cooked egg frittata option to the pastries, fruit, cereal deal they normally have) service is friendly and accommodating, beds (even the rollaway) are comfy. Only thing that would make it better: a hot tub...

Not only is the hotel completely charming and spotlessly clean, the hotel staff went out of its way to make us feel welcome and cared for. It is across from the beach, close to major restaurants and shops, and especially good for travelers who may have mobility issues. We would like to give a special shout out to Arturo who... More

This was our first trip to the island and was not quite sure what to expect, but we very much enjoyed our trip. This hotel was nice, well placed and had extremely nice professional staff. Will definitely come back!

We traveled all the way from Atlanta to spend a few days on Catalina Island in June of 2016. What a delightful place...well worth the trip out there. Our stay at the Pavilion Hotel was very nice. The rooms are average hotel rooms. Everything was very clean and well-tended. The front office personnel were so accommodating and the best part... More

Lovely garden courtyard with rooms surrounding, good quality modern rooms (tho in twin the air conditioning was above one side of bed which was a little uncomfortable). Great relaxing atmosphere and alongside the harbour front. Great breakfast spot in and outside with view of Avalon harbour. Quiet. Perfect location. Friendly and helpful staff. Book early for best price.

Pavilion is one of the best hotels in Avalon. Love the courtyard, location and staff. In center of town almost on the beach, but still a private oasis. All the staff is warm, friendly and very helpful. Great for families. Only issue is rooms are expensive. Will be back.
