Was searching for a place on or near the beach, and came across this Inn. Beautiful themed rooms, bed and breakfast atmosphere, fresh cookies and pie, super friendly staff, fabulous upper deck sun deck to overlook the ocean. All with a price that is super competitive compared to other hotels that are just about on the beach. Seriously, it would... More

Just when we thought it could not get any better, they outdid themselves on this trip. The staff was friendly, the room was fabulous, and we were in heaven. Our favorite hotel just keeps getting better and better.

What a gem in Avila Beach! We were surprised to find this hotel across the street from the beach with unlimited views of the water. Our room had a twin bed on the balcony, and my husband and I traded nights sleeping on it. Afternoons just lazing on the balcony with a good book, and evenings walking to dinner down... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us! It sounds like you enjoyed our Avila Experience Suite, our largest ocean front suite! The furnished balcony is to die for isn't it? You cannot get any closer to the beach, except perhaps on the sand! We hope to have you again soon. Thank you so... More

Stayed here for one night during a drive up the coast. Wish we could have stayed longer. We had a master spa room. The shower in the room was amazing! I wish I had taken a picture of it. The rest of the room was large and decorated with a rustic feel. It was awesome to fall asleep while listening... More

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
