This is a quirky, fun hotel. If you're looking for a Holiday Inn, Ramada type, keep searching. However, if you want a family owned, family run inn this is it. They will cater to your every need. Rooms are tastefully themed, super clean and well appointed. A gift bag awaits you as does pie and ice cream, served nightly at... More

We frequent the Inn at Avila Beach every year both for family vacations and for couples get-aways. We absolutely LOVE this hotel. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, the location is perfect and we live on the amazing roof decks. Every room is unique and kitchy in a wonderful way. This is not your cookie cutter Hilton or Marriott--it... More

What a breath of fresh air to find a unique place to stay along the beach with fantastic views, great amenities, and delicious pie!! But I have to say it's the hospitality of the staff that makes me want to make another reservation real soon.

You can tell these are people who truly care about your stay! We took the kiddos here for a mini get away, the location is perfect, you are right at the beach! They offer free pie/ice cream at night and cookies throughout the day! What kid, heck, what adult will turn that down :) We got a 2 bedroom room,... More

This is the sweetest property. So homey and charming... Not extravagant but clean (a little quirky) with beautiful views. Oh and the pie & ice cream!! Every night at 8pm in the lobby. I'd give it 5 stars for that alone!! The staff was awesome and we can't wait to go back!!

We are always very disappointed if misunderstanding occurs or if we have made mistake in guest stay. In this case our understanding is somewhat different than guest , we received call on long sold out Saturday morning , that they wished to cancel ,our policy is that within 72 hours it is a guaranteed Room.

Amazing stay at this beautiful Inn. We went for three days, two nights. Highlights include fresh baked cookies every day and complimentary fresh baked pies at night. The roof top deck was outstanding, don't let the overcast fool you, bring sunscreen! Bring a bottle of wine or a book and you could pretty much spend the day. Walking distance to... More
