After having changed hotels about every night for a week, we were looking for a place to settle down and relax. We found this place and we really liked it. Avila itself is located about half way between Los Angelos and San Francisco. Thus the place is a good choice, if one wants to break the long ride at the coast into two days. The hotel is located directly at the beach only separated by a small road. The hotel has different types of rooms. A few with sea view, most rooms face a view to the pool, same towards the street on the side (less attractive). Below the hotel, there is a parking garage. Also we found it very practicable that the place has a guest laundry where we could do some washing.
The nice thing about the pool area is that it is surrounded by glass walls protecting this area of the chilly wind from the pacific. The pool area has a pool and a kind of hot tub / whirl pool. The latter is heated more and can even be used in the evenings. Breakfast had good choice and was more than we expected. The rooms are really nice furnished and are separated into a bed room, bath room and a kind of kitchen / living room part. For food the Customs House restaurant is a good choice in walking distance. A bar can also be found next to the restaurant. Shopping Malls are a few miles away north and south on the I 101. In the south there is a outlet mall with all kinds of brands. The few shops we visited seem to be an cheaper alternative to shopping in bigger cities.
The hotel is very clean. Staff is very friendly.
