We found Avila Lighthouse Suites while looking for a halfway stop between LA and Monterey, spending two days driving up the coast to sight see. The road into Avila is stunning (one road in and one road out!) with a wonderful golf course and gorgeous topography. The town itself is tiny - it was the site of toxic oil seepage underground and received a settlement and massive cleanup which has resulted in most of the buildings and the public spaces being tastefully rebuilt in the past 8 - 10 years. The town faces south and is protected on both sides, so it is a sunnier and warmer beach than most (and much less likely to be fogged in during June and July). The hotel is fairly new, very comfortable with modern amenties, and done in a cute cottagey style. The service was excellent as they were able to provide us with a rollaway bed which we had not previously requested, and they had a great laundry facility which we desperately needed. We had dinner down the block at one of the three restaurants but sadly did not have much time to explore more of the area, though we'd love to return sometime. The ocean view rooms look over the pool and the beach and have small balconies which are lovely. It is a great place for a short visit and/or for little kids.
