I have been here a couple of times and I love this place!!! It has tons of character and it's just fun to be around. The prices are good especially considering the location doesn't get any better. I was there recently with two of my friends because we needed a day to just get away and relax. We had an... More

I love the Inn at Avila Beach. It is a fantastic location, the staff and owners are great! The roof top sun deck is a perfect place to hang out. It is cozy and offers some privacy if you want it. The rooms are all very interesting and fun. I've stayed in 3-4 different rooms and even the ones that... More

This Hotel is older, But well kept… a good value for the buck.. Good for Friday & Saturday nights because there are things going on and the Bars & Restaurants stay open late and there is a street Fair on Friday nights… Sunday night are quite and things close up early.. And Seth was a great and helpful hostess..

A friend recommended this hotel, and I am very glad she did! It is in Avila Beach, which is a small town outside Pismo...so much less crowded and tourist-ee. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and they had so many extra touches that really made it a cool experience. There was a goody bag in our room when we... More

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...
