Wish there was a pool:)
Every thing was nice and clean. The hotel is in a great location. The free breakfast at the Avalon grill was great. The complementary tour to the casino was great. It was a really great value. I would stay at the pavilion again.
I wish someone would have told me that I had to tell the staff at least 2 hours in advance so they would help me take the luggage back to the ferry. We had to take our own luggage back to the ferry.
