We were driving home to Canada from our winter AZ vacation and running out of daylight one afternoon so we took a random freeway exit and stumbled upon Avila LIghthouse. I count that as one of the luckiest days of my life. We got a reasonably priced 2d-floor room with a partial ocean view off the balcony (not the oceanfront... More

Went to Avila Beach for a weekend vacation and thoroughly enjoyed the trip! The Avila Lighthouse Suites were beautiful! Nautical theme throughout---lovely room accents--great continental breakfast--across the street from the beach--right by quaint little shops and good restaurants--beach was uncrowded and clean--staff was friendly and accommodating! Price was a little high, but the experience was worth the cost!! Hope to... More

Great location right on the beach in a quaint town with lots of things to do. Nice pool, beach, pier...basketball court, ping pong, children's playground, over-sized checkers. For adults, there are a handful of wine tasting rooms within short walk. Short drive to Pismo, San Luis Obispo. Staff was exceptionally helpful to us in a difficult situation totally not their...

We stayed here for one night. It was a last minute stop on our drive up the coast back from disneyland. Avila beach for one is a hidden gem, absolutely beautiful. This place is right smack in the middle of everything across the street from the beach. The rooms are like mini condos, although only a fridge and micro are... More

We only stayed for one night in an ocean front room but I would definitely return here. The suite is great with a separate sitting room and bedroom [both with TVs] - there was a coffee maker/wine glasses/ microwave/ mugs - also a desk area with good lighting and the internet access was great. The decor is fun; nice light... More

What an amazing time we had over 3 nights here. Our family loved the resort and all it offers. The rooms are very clean, well appointed and decorated in wonderful Cali seashore themes. The staff is caring and show great respect for their property. In fact, I observed then painting the curbs, cleaning the concrete around the pool and many... More

I joined two girlfriends at the Avila Lighthouse Suites Hotel for a long weekend. We had a marvelous time. The highlight of our stay was having massages and facials at The Spa Avila, which is on the grounds. All the rooms are suites and ours had a view of the pool and the Pacific Ocean! It was clean and very... More

What a find this little place is! The hotel was clean comfortable, quiet and well run. It is full of character and absolutely charming. Avila beach itself is one of those dreamy little California Beach towns that is just so pleasant to be in. San Luis Obispo is not far away and of course you are close to wine country... More

The Avila Lighthouse Suites is a great place for a getaway. It's in a tucked away area close to SLO/Pismo yet very convenient to cute restaurants and shops and basically right on the beach. You can't beat the location. Shops and restaurants are right next to the hotel but not crazy touristy busy. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious.... More
