The Inn at Avila Beach was a nice place for a get away weekend. The third floor rooms were very nice and eclectic. The rooms seamed a little dark though. The owner and staff are very friendly and willing to accommodate. The Inn is remodeling their rooftop area. They improved the seating and included a breakfast nook. They serve a...

My husband and I had only seen each other for 56 days in 2016 due to he works overseas on a ship and he worked alot last year. This was a really cool place to "reconnect".

The Inn at Avila is very romantic, but also very pricey $$$. The Avila Experience (room) is fantastic, with a daybed OUTSIDE on the balcony. If your looking to impress, stay here in the recently renovated room. Wood beams, tin roof and rustic feel. Free pie and coffee in the evening. Overall I'd say I enjoyed my first stay in...

Stayed three nights for a Christmas getaway. Ocean view room with a balcony was just the thing for relaxing in the December sunshine. The room itself was large with a queen bed and separate sitting area. Coffee, pie, and other goodies in the lobby. Very friendly and attentive staff. The only disappointment was the roof deck was under construction, but...

I happened to stumble upon Avila Beach and this hotel driving north to SF. Due to business, I had to unexpectedly find a room around Pismo Beach and found this hotel online and I'm glad I did.

Stayed here one night while on a CA HYW 1 road trip with my BFF. It's quirky in a good way. Room had two large beds beds and a jacuzzi tub which we didn't use and a gas fireplace also didn't use as it was too warm. Our room was definitely dated and was told they are remodeling the rooms....

Truly a glorious experience. Wonderful decor: unique, sunny, bright, cheery, tasteful and clean. Full of wonderfully thoughtful little extras - a welcome bag of treats, a kitchen stocked with refreshments, pies, ice creams, teas, coffees, fresh made cookies. Beyond delightful staff. Tremendously accommodating and welcoming. Book the sea view - the sunset and sunrise over the ocean are spectacular. Experience...
