We spent countless hours booking a hotel for our 3 nights/4 days in Avila and were extremely pleased with the Lighthouse Suites. Location was perfect--within walking distance to everything, although Avila is so small you really don't have tons to walk to :) There is a great trail system nearby though if you are an avid runner/walker which would be very convenient and useful. We booked the cheapest room we could which we loved. We had a lovely view of the aquarium next door and the San Luis Bay Inn and a partial ocean view. We were right above the lobby which was nice in the morning to be able to go down and stock up on coffee. Bed was very comfy. Beautiful patio to sit out on a enjoy the beautiful evening. Pool area was fabulous! Our son LOVED it! Plenty of chairs and tables and you can see the ocean :) Breakfast was great...very sugary and decadent but great for vacation. I tried to stick to the hardboiled eggs but would usually splurge on a donut as well. Our son loved the waffle makers.
Overall we would stay here again...especially since they gave us a coupon for our next visit when we went down to checkout in the lobby. We absolutely loved Avila! It is the best beach we have ever been to for kids. Our son was able to get out in the ocean shoulder deep--hardly any current/tides in the summer. The kids had a blast boogie boarding all day long. Custom House was great as was Joe Momma's Coffee. Definitely do wine tasting at Alapay! Their wine's are fabulous!
