Great play structure next door. Beach is across a street but very safe crossing. Nice size pool, heated, max depth 4 feet. Rooms nicely decorated in nautical theme. Quiet rooms, and can open the sliding door to deck to hear the surf at night. Breakfast is better than advertised, make a waffle, hard boiled eggs, etc. Only 1 block to... More

This was an overnight stop for us. The hotel rooms are spacious and nice balcony to enjoy the view of the ocean. Not as romantic as we hoped for but great for families! The hotel has easy parking and carts available right by the elevator, to haul your stuff to your room….If you don't have kids with you, there are... More

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.

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
