Our family of 4 had the privilege to stay at this gorgeous little place this past weekend while my husband was on a weekend business trip in SLO. And we couldn't have found a better, more original place. Guest service is absolutely outstanding.

Stayed there last week just for one night. It was mid-week so not in the least crowded. We got one of the remodeled spa rooms, kinda funky but even though it was not facing the beach, we had a really nice view out of the window over the hot tub. A little weird because there's another property right next to... More

I was trying to figure out where to take my bride on our 25th anniversary, and instantly I knew. ..Inn at Avila Beach! Avila is a magical place, and the Inn sits right across the street from the best kept secret beach in California. When you walk into the Inn, you can tell, this is not your typical hotel. It's...

You are too kind Tim! Thank you for thinking of us for your 25th anniversary. Avila Beach is so special. You picked the perfect spot! It sounds like you were able to enjoy some of our amenities we offer our guests. But it sounds like you took extraaaaa advantage of our beach front location! We hope to host you again!... More

I found Avila Beach and Inn at Avila Beach Inn when planning a road trip. I'm so happy I did! I loved this little inn. The room was very comfortable, the fresh baked pies were yummy, the bag of snacks in the room with a beach bag was a great touch, and the rooftop deck was awesome! We stayed in... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your trip! We wish our Modern Spa Rooms had an ocean view as well! But that is what our four story ocean front sundeck is for!

This is a wonderful hotel at a great California beach. We had a beautiful ocean view room, with a day bed for our teenage daughter, and a very inviting balcony. The newly refurbished room was very nice, clean, and comfortable (inc. fridge and microwave). The staff here was very friendly and welcoming and made us feel at home with snacks,... More

We were there last week, and had a wonderful stay, the weather was lovely too. The people operating the inn were wonderful and generous. The pie was excellent as were the homemade cookies. We will be returning for sure. One thing if you are looking for a modern upscale fancy place this will not be for you, but if you... More

Quirky, but great...we will take it! The hotel owner designed our hotel to be your best friend's beach house, and that is exactly what we are. Your best friend wouldn't make you take your shoes off at their front door, so why would we? We welcome the sand in our facilities! (We are right across from the beach after all!)... More
