This place will not disappoint. The cleanliness and décor of the grounds reminded me of a Disney resort. Very well maintained. Amenities were great and the staff very friendly and attentive. The beach and local area are also great, much cleaner and refined than the beach to the south.

The hotel was top notch for my family. They provided a friendly staff at the front desk & at the pool. The rooms were very clean and the breakfast was wonderful for the whole family to enjoy. We had 2 televisions in our room that we NEVER turned on due to our 3 boys having too much FUN enjoying the... More

Great location as RIGHT across the street from beach, plenty of great sidewalk restaurants, and wine tasting, all within walking distance. The town is very quaint and secluded with NO drive though traffic. The entire resort is done in a nautical theme, was very clean, and the personell were all... More

We stayed 3 nights which was perfect for our first stay. One of our favorite things when we go on vacation is being able to park the car and not need it for going out to dinner or to the beach. Avila Beach is small, and the beach is beautiful, there are excellent restaurants and cute shops. There is no... More

My son & I spent one night at Avila Beach Lighthouse Suites. The decor is nautical-themed & we had a small living room & separate bedroom. Perfect location & beautiful views out across the bay!

A very nice beachfront hotel on a great stretch of the California coast. I'm reticent to review this place, because it may mean the crowds will start heading there instead of Morro Bay or Pismo... but Avila is a nice, clean manageable community with a great public beach, and very good restaurants and bars. The Lighthouse Suites are in the... More

This hotel is literally steps from the beach. The hotel itself is small and well kept. It offers a little continental type breakfast that your basic breads, fruits, juices. Depending on the time of the year that you goit can be either very expensive or very reasonable. I prefer the off-season, the whole area is quieter. All of Avila is... More

The hotel is beautiful and perfect for a seaside getaway. Our room was right next to the increcibly well-heated pool and hot tub. Also the beach was a whole 10 second walk from our front door.
