We had been to Avista be for and loved it! This time we tried the breakfast, not good for the money spent. It also made my husband sick. We also tried the Tree Top Lounge, another mistake. The drinks are over priced. The bartender not very knowledgeable or friendly. He had all his friends in there all under 21 so it felt uncomfortable. The 2nd shift female at the desk was rude. These are all small things. This hotel and rooms are very clean and free of bugs! Beds are comfortable and the view from the room was amazing. We will be back in May! Just wont do the breakfast or the lounge again.

The Avista is the greatest! Great location, close to main street, happenings, and whatever you need. Of course, you can find just about all you want to do right there where you are staying. Love the staff. They are friendly, fun, and ready to help. Rates are good. If you go often, they give you preferred rates. That makes me feel special right from the start. The beds are comfortable. Rooms are always clean. Lots of things going on. Great oceanviews and amenities. But cannot say enough about the staff. They are just so friendly and great. Ready to help all the time in any way they can. .

Room Tip: All the rooms have a view. Like the direct oceanfront the best.

The Avista Resort is a perfect place to stay in the winter months. The indoor pool, lazy river and hot tub were perfect and a warm mid-January day got everybody outside to beach side. I usually visit Avista in the summer and always in October but January was perfect.

Room Tip: We like to stay on the 4th floor -- that's where the fitness center and laundry room is located...

Our 6th winter golf trip at the Avista. Hotel is spotless and looks as good as the year it opened. Golf director planned our trip great- Front desk staff was friendly and very helpful. I would
recommend Avista to anyone, and look forward to going back next year.

Room Tip: 3 Bedroom Corner Units are really cool- spacious, well appointed, great views

When we arrived at the Avista, we were greeted warmly by the staff and had a quick check-in. Unfortunately, the room smelled as if someone had been smoking in it and we have two children with asthma so we asked for another room. Stephanie, the front desk associate, did not miss a beat, offered us another room, made a follow-up call to the room to make sure that we were were pleased. The only issue we had was that we were there for 3 days with no housekeeping service. Stephanie did tell us that they were trying to conserve energy and would not offer housekeeping services when we checked in but the floor was a bit messy and we didn't know what to do with the trash. I mentioned this on the customer survey and was contacted by Cheryl Blankenship, the night manager who actually took the time to read the survey and respond with nice note.

This is not my first stay at the Avista. My family went last year for Spring Break and EVERYTHING was better this time. They offer nice, clean rooms with a beautiful view. If you have never stayed there, or if you haven't been in a while, give it a try! They offer a great value and try hard to get it right.

Room Tip: Try and get a high floor for a great view!

This was my first stay at the Avista, but I will certainly be staying there again. The room was exceptionally clean, and the beds were THE most comfortable beds I have ever experienced in a hotel. Every single staff member was most helpful and always kind. It was a great pleasure to stay at the Avista!
