Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

The Pavilion Hotel is a gem right in the middle of Avalon right on the beach. Convenient to all the restaurants and shops. Loved the wine and cheese hour from 4:30-5:30. Also great breakfast. The room was a little small but very cozy- we had a king size bed with plenty of room for a roll away. Perfect 2 night stay!

Stayed: April 2014

My husband is handicap and uses a walker within the room & wheelchair everywhere else. Your handicap room was perfect for us, as he slept in the single next to the wall for safety & I slept great in my own double bed. The handicap bathroom was one of the best we had in our travels with plenty of room for him to get around by himself. It also helped that room was close to entry of your complex. My only disappointment was that due to the cost, my daughter's family had to stay elsewhere; which is inconvenient since they help me with my husband when we travel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor can hear those on the second floor walking around.

The service at Pavillion equals any 5 star hotel! Wine and cheese around the firepit, one
minute walk to bars, restaurants, beach, golf carts! Great ambience! We loved this place and will bring friends and family next time to enjoy the experience.

Wonderful 2 night stay. Staff is very attentive. Great location, beautiful grounds, nice rooms. Wine and cheese social every afternoon is a nice extra. Free breakfast and wi-fi. Highly recommended place to stay on Catalina.

This is lovely motel complex. Courteous desk staff, clean rooms. Unfortunately they billed us for nights that we didn't stay there. Have contacted them 4 times to straighten out the error as yet they have not had the courtesy to respond to out messages

This hotel is very quaint, had an excellent view of the harbor, a great staff and a beautiful courtyard area. They include wine and cheese every evening and breakfast every morning with your hotel rate. The rooms are small, but cozy, clean and quiet. I would definitely return to this hotel for vacation.

My wife and I chose to stay at the Pavilion Hotel for our first-ever trip to Santa Catalina island and this was the best decision we have made on a hotel selection in many years. From the moment we stepped up to the front desk to register until we sadly had to check out two nights later, our experience at the Pavilion Hotel was the absolute best we have had in many, many years of traveling in or outside the U.S. We found the hotel staff--especially Joy, Mariano and Roberto--to be openly friendly, helpful and always treated us like they were truly happy that we had selected their hotel for our stay. The grounds are beautifully maintained with such a terrific variety of plants and flowers that you might just think you're walking through a botanical garden. Our room? The staff (Joy) surprised us by giving us a complimentary upgrade to one of their beautiful suites for our two-night visit. We stayed in their Descanso Suite (rm. 202) and it was beautifully appointed with current technology and every comfort item and the bed was one of the best we have ever slept in in a hotel setting. We enjoyed a comfortable balcony that overlooked the grounds and had a very pleasant view of Avalon Harbor. Our room was spotlessly clean upon our arrival and then carefully and expertly maintained (including turn-down service in the evening) by a terrific housekeeping team. The afternoon/evening wine and cheese gathering was top-shelf all the way and, again, the staff were always fun and helpful. The continental breakfast fare was always fresh, delicious and attractively presented each morning. We also enjoyed and appreciated the complimentary luggage storage and transfers from the boat dock to/from the hotel as we never had to worry about the security of our luggage. I suppose you're getting the idea from this review that we enjoyed our stay at the Pavilion Hotel. Absolutely! Will the Pavilion Hotel be our first choice when we return to Catalina? Absolutely! A hearty thanks to the entire staff at the Pavilion Hotel for making our first visit to your island a truly memorable visit. You will see us, again!
