“Clean, friendly staff, comfortable bed”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

We enjoyed our two night stay. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable (a big deal for my husband who has back issues) and the staff was friendly, especially the wait staff at the Just off Main restaurant. The only issue was the free wifi never worked properly. I called the front desk twice and they reset it but it still did not work so I ended up activating the mobile hotspot feature on my moble phone. Overall though we would definitely stay there again.

Thank you so much for your positive comments on our staff, I will be happy to pass them on for you, they will appreciate it as they try very hard. I am sorry about the wifi I will look into that right away as we should not have reset it twice and it not work. Thank you for taking the time to let us know though so hopefully our other guests will not have the same problem though we should have had it fixed for you. Please give us another try as we promise to get it right the first time.

This was our 1st stay, but it won't be our last. Check-in was a snap, with friendly staff. The room was amazing. Didn't expect what we walked into. We had awesome views of both the ocean and the strip towards Cherry Grove. Couldn't focus on any football games sitting in the living room, the eyes kept wondering off to the ocean or the strip. Nice private balcony. Super comfortable beds. Walking to the OD clubs was great. Short ride to great shopping. Nice wide beach area. Great for resting. We would highly recommend Avista.

Room Tip: We were on the north end, 9th floor. Views were awesome.

I have stayed at the Avista 5 times now. Each and every time has been great. It's located in such a great area for shopping and eating out. The beach area is fantastic! I highly recommend this resort. The staff are very nice and helpful and want to make your stay a great one. The rooms are always nicely decorated and clean! Also you feel very safe and secure in this resort.

I read many reviews and some were very concerning, but others were positive so I took a chance. I have to say, as with most properties in MB area, that it depends on the season you visit. During summers, everything is busy, slow, late, not thoroughly serviced, etc. Even at the high-priced resorts, I've seen bad reviews during summer months. But staying in off season, I found this resort to be a very good value for the price. It's not fancy and overly luxurious, but it was very comfortable and a good place for a relaxing stay. I found the beds to be very comfortable for my personal tastes (everyone's is different of course!). Also remember that each condo is slightly different even in the same room type, so it does somewhat depend on which condo you're assigned how happy you'll be (as with any condo at the beach). Be sure to ask for full information about the type of room you want, and review the pictures and floor plans on the website to be sure you're happy with your choice. I also advise talking to a live body to reserve rather than just booking on the website as you'll get better information about the rooms and probably a better room choice.

Room Tip: One bedroom units are not real large in some floor plans, but great for a single, couple, or small f...

We stayed at the Avista Resort for my Birthday the 2nd week of October. After some research I am glad I made the choice I did. We booked a golf package with the hotel directly with the resort. Everything was great at the Avista, starting with the very friendly staff at check in. We stayed on the 8th floor in a 1 bedroom Oceanview Suite. The view was amazing and the room was super clean and well stocked with everything you could need. It really was like having your own mini apartment. The housekeeping staff was absolutely amazing.

It was a short walk to a few restaurants. We would highly recommend the Flynn's Irish Tavern, we met the owners and the food was great. Just an awesome experience and a must do! We didn't eat at all at the Avista. The location of this resort is good, one block up there is Carabba's, Buffalo Wild Wings and the Outback. Was a cheap taxi or a short drive.

Walking the beach from the hotel was nice, it was in a great location. Our weather was perfect so we did walk the beach although the water was a bit chilly.

We would recommend the Avista to friends and would definitely stay again. If you are thinking of booking it don't hesitate! Thank you Avista for making our week away great :)

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 826

We have stayed in several MB area hotels. We have also stayed at the Avista several times.
This is the best hotel for the price in the MB area. Always makes for a relaxing weekend and there is often something happening on Main Street during the weekends.

Fancy room. We were in room 825 in the north tower. Full kitchenette with oven, stovetop, coffee maker, blender, full fridge, and dishwasher! For beds, we had two double beds, murphy bed, sleeper couch. We could have slept 8 people!! Clothes washer and dryer in a closet. Tile floor at entrance is great if you have sandy feet or shoes.
Great pool- outdoor large pool, kiddie pool, and whirlpools and indoor lazy river / more whirlpools.
Service was great. Tim checked us in and was very friendly. We had a coffee maker was didn't work but we called the desk and they sent a new coffee maker to our room.
Location was awesome. Oceanfront near residential area so not crowed at all.
They have a thanksgiving and a newyears dinner and celebration package and we want to try it out.
We will return!
