We ended up here for a mini vacation during a work conference and WE LOVED IT. The amenities and the staff were so awesome. We have already rebooked for February. Close to the beach, fireplaces, candles, spas in the room, massages.... wonderful experience! !!!!

We were warmly greeted and then cozied into our pet-friendly spa room with our two dogs. The room was clean and welcoming, and included a gift basket with all kinds of complementary snacks and bottled water for us to enjoy during our stay. There's also a Hospitality Suite which is open 24/7, where you can enjoy Peet's coffee and other... More

This resort is a home away from home. The customer service is actually Family service....best I have seen. Wake up to fresh baked bread and coffee, afternoon snacks, evening meals and wine. If you are coming to CA this is the place to stay!! Great recommendations on where to go very knowledgable on the area and wines.

I don't want you to read this! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Avila La Fonda Hotel and don't want you to know about it. This small hotel tucked a few blocks from the beach is a gem. My husband and I wanted a few days to get away and enjoy peace and quiet. La Fonda delivered. The town and... More

We had been traveling all day and looking for a place to stay over one night. We planned on San Luis Obispo but took a wrong turn and ended up in Avila Beach. We found this hotel and just loved it. The entrance to the hotel is very quaint and welcoming as was the staff. It is very well designed... More

We came to our hotel at 4:30pm when our check-in was at 3pm and our room was still not clean. They told us to return in 15 minutes and during this time another employee said that he has spoken to my wife over the phone pretending he knew us when my wife never even called once. Then we entered the... More

We wanted to break up the drive from LA to SF, and have a romantic day away before heading to a family party. Avila La Fonda was the perfect place, especially as this was our first trip together, and we wanted something relaxing and romantic. It's a small boutique hotel (my favorite kind), impeccably designed and decorated. Smelled great. Very... More

We try to get away twice a year to disconnect from the world and reconnect with each other. I surprised him by making reservations at this hotel. This is one of the best places we have stayed at the coast. We enjoyed it so much we are planning to go back once the Christmas decor is up. From the super... More

My love and I are locals on the Central Coast of California. Whenever we need to "escape" and invest in some romantic time we go to the Avila La Fonda Hotel. We both travel a lot for work and this local hotel is still our favorite place to stay. It is so romantic. You don't even feel like you're staying... More
