Stayed here on a package with Catalina Express for a one night stay. I could not be more impressed of the staff and accommodations at the Pavilion Hotel. Communications before were very timely and helpful, being met at dock by hotel staff who collected luggage, walking two blocks to hotel and being greeted by Andrew at check in was amazing....

Not the least expensive, but absolutely the best location on the Island. The upgrading of this long time hotel is phenomenal. Includes a delightful hot breakfast and wine and cheese hour. Great, professional staff, comfortable rooms. I will always look here first when going to Catalina. Frequently completely booked, so plan ahead.

We stayed here for a girls' weekend/bachelorette party. It is a beautiful hotel perfectly located with a view of Avalon bay. A yummy breakfast was included and you couldn't beat the view we enjoyed with breakfast. Facilities/grounds were beautiful and well-kept. The staff could not have been more friendly. Thanks Andrew for making sure we had a great stay!

My dive club comes here every year, and they always take care of us. They do a social hour with wine and cheese, they light the firepit, they have an excellent breakfast including espresso/lattes. There's a lovely garden in the center of the building with lots of lounge chairs. It's right in the middle of everything in Avalon, so it's...

I stayed here with a friend for a girls weekend in early November. We had a great time in Catalina and this little hotel was easy and in the best location. The room was clean and comfortable. The grounds are lovely and relaxing. If you can, get a room on the ground floor so you have a little sitting area...

Arrived at the Pavilion Hotel on October 17 just off the early Catalina Express ferry out of Long Beach. Early check in was not available but the staff were kind enough to stow our luggage while we went diving. Upon our return checked in without a hitch. Room was spacious and comfortable with all amenities available. The location is waterfront...

We went to Avalon for the Catalina triathlon and 5k race and couldn't believe our luck in finding this hotel! Great vibe with the outdoor seating area where you could enjoy the wine & cheese tasting in the afternoon, or relax by the fire pit at the end of the night. Nice free breakfast in the morning with just enough...

Had a great stay. The location, staff, rooms and breakfast, wine and cheese hour all top notch and amazing! Won't stay anywhere else in Avalon again. We left something behind and the front desk and housekeeping staff were on it to make sure that our item was returned to us.

My wife and I went to Catalina for a few days and stayed here. I'm very glad we did. The place is super nice. It gives a calm feeling. The breakfast provided each morning was great, and each day there is a wine and cheese happy hour. Good wine and good cheese. We will definitely stay here again!
