How do I even begin to express how UN-RELAXING and UN-ROMANTIC this hotel is. I am extremely disappointed with our stay. The hotel was extremely noisy, children (about 10 of them) running from floor to floor screaming yelling starting at 7am. The people slamming doors to their rooms above us and yelling from one side of the court yard to... More

If you are planning on staying at Avila Beach, this is the place to stay. We had a cozy room with a Mexican Motif that had french doors overlooking the ocean. Not to mention how close the Inn is to the water. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooftop sundeck is wonderful. There are hammocks and very cozy... More

I found this hotel via internet search. I was fooled by the price of $299 for the room which I thought would imply a reasonable quality. It was delightful in a sort of hippiesque way but it was generally a trired pink motel in drastic need of refurbishment and felt a little like a hostel. That said when you forgot... More

Although reciently renovated, this very old property was run down and lacked A.C. Our room was stuffy and was aquiped with only a standing fan. We wern't given the delux room they sold us when booking. When we complained, the general manager said "you got a good deal". The owner later insulted me in an e-mail. We were very disappointed...

Our first stay in Avila Beach...the first of many to come!! We booked 2 rooms for 2 days at the Inn at Avila Beach. By far one of the most enjoyable vacation experiences ever. One of our rooms was an ocean view room, this room we had was setup with a very comfortable love seat and chaise located near the... More

We took a mini-vacation in Avila Beach on Aug 9-11th 2006 and stayed at the Inn for the first time, it was wonderful! So beatifully decorated and inviting, comfortable. The staff was friendly, Edward, Joe, Amy, thank you so much! The family room was great. The roof-top deck is out of this world, already planning to go back next year.... More

OK, don't bail out on this one early, or you'll miss the happy ending. The wife and I usually stay in Pismo, but with almost all of the hotels controlled by the same corporate mastermind, setting the rates pretty high, we decided to try an unknown further north in Avila Beach. When we first arrived, we were pretty impressed with... More

Stayed here for several days the week of 7/24/2006. Brought our 3 kids. Yes, the rooms are a little older, but the service was good, the location can't be beat and we enjoyed all the "little things" that more than made up for the age of the place. The roof deck is great for a drink in the evening and... More

Imagine feeling the warmth of the natural breeze and listening to the sound of the ocean while getting one of the best massages of your life. I recommend you do what I did...get the massage on the roof top deck! There is a little massage room if you prefer, but I'm telling you, it's very awesome on the roof!! (you... More

First I would like to thank everyone who gave this inn a good review and Tripadvisor, if not for you we may have never found this place. Traveling the PCH we needed a place for the night. We wanted an ocean view room and what a view it was. Simply beautiful. It has what all the good reviews say. I... More
