I'm sure the money you pay to stay at the Pavilion is because of the location, being at the end of the Green Pier. The room doesn't look like the advertised photo, the toilet got backed up, and it just didn't measure up. It's nice to have the wine and cheese tasting every day and the continental breakfast, but there were other hotels with the same breakfast. We found another hotel just down the road, the Metropol, and it was a lot nicer and still in the center of town, for a lot less. For what we paid at the Pavilion, we could have had a suite at the Metropol. We'll stay there next time.
Guess you can't always judge a book by it's cover, or rather internet description.
