I have stayed at Inn at Avila many times, and each time is better than the last. The Sun Deck is an under appreciated amenity, we BBQ'd both nights during our stay and it was great. Stayed in a newly updated Spa Room on a special rate and was pleased with that. The second night was an Ocean View room.... More

Such a great experience at the Inn....the staff was very friendly, our room (205) was clean, decorated very cute and had a great view. The amenities reminded us of small boutique hotels of yesterday. We love the community room and I know my husband ate his share of the cookies and pie....which are such personal touches that sets this hotel... More

I found this hotel when looking for great places to stay along the CA coast. I booked a room with a direct ocean view. It truly had a direct view and was gorgeous - lots of pillows on the bed and as an added bonus there was a day bed on our balcony. It was amazing to see the sunset... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay! It sounds like you were in our one of a kind Avila Experience Suite, one of our best ocean front rooms! Although you had a direct ocean view from your balcony, hopefully you had the chance to check out our rooftop sundeck! Hope to host you again soon!... More

Love the Inn at Avila Beach. My wife and I spent the first night of our honeymoon there many moons ago and it keeps getting better every time we go back. This is not a cookie cutter hotel but a quirky, local, and friendly spot, much live Avila Beach itself. We stay here every time we pass through the Central... More

Inn at Avila Beach is not like any other hotel I have stayed at. The staff and the amenities make you feel like family, staying at a beach house. Every evening they have fresh homemade pies available. There are cookies, ice cream and water available all day. They have beach toys available for use. The best part of the Inn,... More

We love Avila as a weekend with our 3 young kids. The hotel prices are outrageous but we like not having to drive or take our own beach gear. The staff here is so friendly and their pie, Popsicles and treats are great amenities and the rooftop deck is divine. The interior rooms can be stuffy unfortunately and our latest... More

We always recommend our Family Suite for families (our largest room), or one of our Themed Suites, the Spanish Villa Suite. These are the largest... More

Inn at Avila Beach was so cozy and quaint. The staff felt like family and were so friendly and pleasant. I kept using the phrase "Hippie Chic" to describe my sentiments of the Inn. Yes, it was vintage but with a flare of class. If you are expecting the top notch in fixtures and do-dads, then this is not the... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us! "Do-dads," huh? Haven't heard that one in a while! While we are not your typical starchy white hotel, we do enjoy providing a few extra touches to our guests. Those include freshly baked pie every night, chocolate chip cookies and popsicles (in the summer) all day... More

I spend about 30-40 nights in hotels each year - this is the most Hospitable place I have stayed for many years. I have stayed at the Four Seasons and about a dozen different Fairmont hotels, and they are great properties. But I always feel like I'm in a swanky hotel. This place really does feel like I'm at my... More

This is an old hotel that's been remodeled and includes some nice amenities, especially for families. They do a really nice job catering to families by including pretty much anything you need to enjoy a day at the beach with your kids. They provide towels, beach toys, boogie boards, and even snacks. They also have fresh baked pies and cookies... More
