Great location (especially for working @ PSE&G Diablo Canyon Nuclear site). BYO groceries as there are limited alternatives in Avila Beach. Easy access to SLO and down-beach communities. BYO alarm clock. Pack knowing there is one coin-op washer/dryer available, no laundry drop-off service.

Very nice continental breakfast & service was professional, friendly & efficient. Lots... More

The suites- a bedroom and living room, and small kitchen (mini frig and microwave) are great for families. The rooms with an ocean view are nice, but since... More

Loved this hotel. It's location is fabulous. Rooms are big and beds are comfortable. Price was fantastic during offseason and on a Sunday evening. Wish it wasn't so expensive during the spring and summer months.

The spa was beautifully designed and the staff was wonderful. I was very pleased with the maternity massage. The hotel grounds were a bit confusing as far as layout goes, but very well maintained. The front desk staff was very friendly!

Overall the hotel was very nice. The beds could have been a lot more comfortable and we had a small ant infestation. Parked in the underground parking lot and had problems with the above pipes leaking something on our car.
