Down in SLO for my daughter's graduation, rather than stay near the campus which is a zoo on non-graduation weekends, I went for something near the ocean. The one right in Avila proper was sold out (btw having walked by it, I'm glad we ended up where we did). With my 88 year old father in tow, I had a... More

First time here and we will definitely be back! Wasn't sure what to expect because it looked a little too homey and cabin-like from outside. Came to spend romantic time at the local wineries to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The staff was outstanding! Husband got injured when we were out of the hotel and the staff was so accommodating and... More

We've never stayed here before but we came for a special occasion, so we splurged. We were very impressed with the inn, staff, and room. You can use the spiral staircase or the elevator. The lobby is very impressive, coffee, teas, and hot chocolate offered all day and cookies in the afternoon for people checking in, but there's always leftovers... More

We stayed here for our anniversary and were impressed. It is a well appointed inn nestled in the trees along the Bob Jones Trail just a short walk or bike ride from beautiful Avila beach. The inn is designed in craftsman style and has a warm inviting feel. The rooms are clean and roomy and the staff is friendly. The... More

Beautiful quiet location and quaint small hotel. Bike trails to Avila Beach very close. Bathroom equipped with shower/tub combination with glass enclosure. No place to sit and rotate into shower and no safety rails. Very dangerous for Seniors and shorter adults. Room was small with lots of sharp edges. Continental breakfast was average at best

I rarely review places on TA but I had to thank Dustin for having a bottle of chilled champagne ready for us in our room on short notice! It was very thoughtful and made my wife's day, so thanks again! Plus the hotel was very nice and the rooms were huge.

Brilliant hotel and Staff. Ideal for relaxing stop over between LA. and San Francisco or a longer stay at Avila beach. Great location we loaned the free bikes for an brilliant cycle ride to the beach on a dedicated cycle path ( recommend ). Everything is high quality except the plastic plates and cutlery?

Avila Village Inn What a find, a small Hotel built with amazing detail and craftsmanship set in a great location. You will not be disappointing staying here, 24 hour coffee, tea, and hot chocolate. Fresh Baked cookies at check-in, what a treat! The front counter ladies were very kind, friendly and treated us like VIPs.

Something was amiss with the main air-handling equipment into the large open plan two story lobby so that we experienced low intensity vibrational noise in our second floor room all night for the four nights we stayed, which increased to very serious noise at 5.30 a.m. on our last night. As others have noted one needs to be quite athletic... More

The Avila Village Inn is a very sweet, quiet getaway. Rooms clean and quiet with a fireplace. Bathroom abit challenging with the large stepover to shower. Big screen TV needs HD update but overall adequate. If you are an intense tech type person you may be unhappy. There is free Wifi, but thats about it. Wonderful access to atheltic club... More
