This was a wonderful hotel and we loved our suite - Staff was very friendly and I really appreciated all the extra things you provided us - such as an upgrade on our room, the Birthday Card and Champagne, the $50 gift card when I checked out. So thanks again - it was wonderful. Jean Warnke

My trip was for a family party in SLO. I know the area since my daughter attended Cal Poly and we owned a home in SLO. I knew I wanted to stay at the Lighthouse Suites. I was not disappointed. The view was beautiful. I will be back.

This hotel's location is AMAZING. Just across the street from the beach. The views from the second floor are gorgeous. The rooms are spacious, clean, with just darling beach decor. The breakfast is great. Lots of options. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. You will not be disappointed.

Perfect spot for family reunion. The grandchildren love the beach and pool area. It's fun to shop and dine in shops and restaurants nearby. The breakfast room is very well planned. The grandchildren rent boogie boards at the beach. There are several really nice wine bars. The market has everything you could want. Perfect location.

We visit Avila Beach 2-3 times a year, we always stay at the Lighthouse Inn. Perfect location! We spend our day at the beach, my husband plays golf... We eat at one of the amazing restaurants within walking distance ( or just a short drive away) the perfect family getaway!

I was a groomsman of a wedding held here. The ceremony was held on the beach, cocktail by the pool, and reception in the conference room. Everything went beautifully. I had originally booked two nights at Madonna Inn. But due to a screw up when Madonna Inn transitioned to a new computer system, I was evicted after one night. Luckily,... More

Clean and quiet room with nice view of ocean. We enjoyed the pleasant atmosphere and nice staff. We enjoyed the special wine tasting passes they provided. Breakfast room was set up for ease of getting many choices of food.

Beautiful room (2 queen bed - ocean view room type) with spectacular ocean views, super clean and well maintained except A/C not working - room too hot to sleep comfortably otherwise it would be a 5 STAR. A little pricey for A/C not working. Excellent activities: pool, table tennis, large size checker boards, activities for children (painting), breakfast excellent.
