Nicely remodeled rooms with comfortable beds and nice linens. Rooms are small but we didn't mind as the seating areas under the Pavilion were comfortable and perfect for people watching. Couches, chairs and tables. Nice lounge chairs also spread throughout the lushly gardened courtyard that afforded some privacy. The wine/breakfast room is an included perk. Lots of fresh fruit, cereal,...

Great cozy hotel close to the shops and restaurants. Nice breakfast provided. Morgan at the front desk was very nice and helpful which made for a pleasant stay as she was willing to help with anything we needed.

What a wonderful place to stay! This hotel is absolutely firs class! It is older and we wondered if it had gone from "quaint" to "dumpy" but NO!!!! This is beautifully renovated, about 10 steps from the beach and right in the center of Avalon Bay. Huge covered patio with comfortable chairs and tables, just right to sit and watch...

The pavilion on Catalina island was gorgeous, right on the harbor front, very clean and comfortable. Every night they treat the guest to wine and cheese and in the morning a very nice continental breakfast, pastries, toast, jams, cereal, and my favorite cafe au lait, coffee of all kinds All included in the price.

When we visited Catalina last year, just for the day, we checked out the Pavilion and loved the feel of the hotel. This year, we stayed on the island for a long weekend... 2 nights at The Pavilion. Within walking distance to everything. Clean, well-appointed room overlooking the beautiful garden courtyard area. Nice complimentary continental breakfast in the morning and...

Awesome , clean, breakfast, best location, comfortable inside the rooms and outside in the yard. Costs more than the rest for sure, but I stayed when it was off season and was happy with the price. Will go again, when the price drops. Had SCUBA gear and there was a place to rinse and store if necessary.

So many hotels aren't well maintained when they are old. This is the exception. The grounds are great. The hotel is spotless and has every possible amenity. The check in was flawless and gracious. Wine and cheese in the evening and light breakfast this morning.
