First off, beautiful room. Design is awesome, faux paint amazing. Carpet stains everywhere, tv very small and difficult to see. No pool, no restaurant, no bar. Appetizers and treats sub par. Room noise upstairs.

We stayed for 11 nights and by the end of the first night we were already feeling like it was home! The customer service was top notch! Kayla, Jaime and Luis were so friendly and helpful and made us feel like family. The rooms were very clean and the housekeeping crew were always asking if we needed anything. I honestly can’t say enough good things about our stay, we will be returning and would recommend Avila La Fonda to everyone! Thank you again for making our stay so amazing!

Beautiful boutique hotel close to the strand in a nice, quiet neighborhood. Staff are well trained and very friendly. We try and stay at La Fonda every year on our way to SoCal. Continental breakfast in the morning, excellent room servicing. Just a great place to stay in a special community.

Quick Fall getway with our adult children and our little corgi to commemorate late Queen. Hotel was like little bed and breakfast with fresh croissants and coffees for breakfast, chips and cerveza for lunch and happy hour every night. Beach was open to all the doges monring and late afternoon. Perfect spot to stay and connect with loved ones. Thank you!

My wife and I stayed at the Avila La Fonda Inn the weekend of our wedding. We stayed in the Owners Suite, which was fabulous. Plenty of room for guests to socialize before and after the wedding, the bedroom is easily closed off to keep visitors from snooping. The shower has three nozzles and a steam mister. A+ overall!

The Avila La Fonda far exceeded my expectations. The hotel’s location is convenient to everything. The accommodations were very nice. The hotel amenities were unbelievable! Wine and hors douvres in the afternoon, pie and ice cream at night and a wonderful continental breakfast in the morning. As a big plus, the hotel is dog friendly. I will definitely stay here again and will recommend it to my friends.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and tastefully decorated. GF was impressed with the service and complimentary wine & cheese and pie. Avila Beach is a cute tourist town on the Central Coast with lots to do near by. We went to a hidden gem, the Cal Poly Arboretum. There was only one other couple walking the paths and viewing the exotic plants.
