Wonderful surprise on what was only supposed to be a place to stop on our road trip. Large suite, sitting/TV room, direct access from both the bedroom and the bathroom to strictly private outdoor mineral spring water spa soaking tub, beautifully landscaped grounds.

It was the perfect mini-vaca. Easy to make reservations, great service, clean, reasonable. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get away for any amount of time, for any reason. I will be there again!

the surroundings were beautiful but our room could use some TLC. The rooms and the bathroom could use a face lift and the plumbing needed some work. For the amount they charged i was expecting it to be a little nicer. It was move in day at Cal poly so that is why the rate was inflated

We come to this resort on a regular basis for the fabulous massages and recreation opportunities such as hiking, biking and yoga. The property is beautiful and the suites across the bridge are peaceful and lovely. However, the last two times we have stayed the food is just really not good at all. We had dinner and breakfast, neither of... More

Overall our visit was wonderfully relaxing. It is what we have come to expect over the years we have been visiting. The continuous improvements are appreciated, but the food did not seem to have the same quality we experienced the past few years.

The noise is too severe. Footsteps, talk sound from upstairs was noisy all night. We could not sleep. And the bed covers were very dirty, bad cleaning conditions. But fresh air and walking the road is very good.

We requested a late checkout due to me having a meeting till 11:00 in SLO. Your front desk said they could not accomodate due to the amount of people checking in the next day. We left the property at almost 4 on Tuesday. There was NOBODY around as commented by your wait staff in the diner and nobody expected any... More

Just to clarify, we always try to offer early-check-ins and later check-outs whenever possible. But because the suites and rooms are situated on over 100 acres, we can't always offer this service because of the housekeeping demands to get suites/rooms cleaned and ready for the next guests, especially with arrivals starting at 4 and for the many hours after that....

We do our best to accommodate early check-ins. As most hotels, sometimes it is not possible because it is very busy. That is why we have a guaranteed check-in at 4pm. I'm sorry we couldn't get you in earlier, we will always try to do so. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts with us. More

Accommodations were tastefully upscale in the Queen Suite, clean and oversized. Service was excellent and responsive from check-in to check out. Would highly recommend. Private spa on the balcony was a great feature.

After moving our daughter in at SLO we were too tired to drive home. We walked in and booked a room with 2 spa treatments - ask for their special packages. Waited at bar until room was ready - yummy drinks and friendly bartender. Room was just "okay" - sits on busy street and lots of noise from the downstairs... More

Thank you for your lively review! Very fun. Really glad you enjoyed the Gardens of Avila food. In regards to the room, it is one of the standard rooms, and which we are completely renovating starting next month. I'm sorry about the hot tub that never filled--that is totally unacceptable.
