I had some time in between my southern and Northern California trip. This was a perfect stop and a perfect hotel. The rooms are unique and comfortable. The pie is tasty and popsicles are a nice treat. The rooftop area has a BBQ and plenty of space to enjoy the amazing view.

This was a great experience. It was so close to the beach and shops. My 12 & 14 year old kids loved staying here and want to come back for their bdays. The employees were do friendly and generous with the snacks. I loved the record player and access to the rooftop beach view!

We spent a one night get-away at The Inn at Avila Beach. Our room was ready when we got there early! We relaxed on the roof-top balcony after arriving, lounging on couches with many pillows. The ocean view from the balcony was beautiful, we even saw some whales! The pie and ice cream at eight o'clock was delicious and unexpected,... More

Beautiful area to visit. It has a small town vibe with a sense of class. Lots of entertainment available and the weather could not be better most of the year. Special events available. Service was excellent

I could not speak more highly of the Inn at Avila Beach! We felt right at home the minute we arrived...from the thoughtful and attentive service, to the beach side location, incredible and relaxing deck (with great views and sea life), warm chocolate chip cookies, homemade pie, updated and comfortable room (with a spa tub), and a morning breakfast basket...this...

This is the second time we have stated at the Inn since April and absolutely love everything about it. The rooms are comfortable, uniquely adorable and comfortable. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the little "extras" make the stay just that much more amazing. It is a perfect destination for my husband and I and our 2 little girls!

Great location and atmosphere. Beach toys to use and fresh baked pies and cookies. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. It's not you cookie cutter big name hotel which makes the stay even more enjoyable ........ I hope to return and stay longer.

We stayed in the Modern Spa Room. It didn't have a view, but that was no problem. They have a comfortable sun deck that felt very private and our room had a skylight window we left open to hear the waves at night. The service was very friendly and Ryan took the time to give me a tour while he... More

Great place for the family. They make everything easy with the bikes, beach toys, chairs, umbrellas,..... plus the cookies, pie, hot chocolate..... The room has it all and does not nickel and dime you with extras like parking or resort fees. We had a great time with friends and family, taking 4 rooms and using the roof-top as a meeting... More

We stayed at this delightful hotel for 1 night in the owner's suite. Our room had a great balcony overlooking the ocean and the largest jacuzzi tub we've ever used. It was beautiful in a little bit of a funky way. Sort of like going back a few decades. They have record players and classic records you can borrow as... More
