We were visiting our son in Glendale this week. While he was at work, we came north to the San Luis Obispo area and were looking for a place to stay. As usual we "fly by the seat of our pants," and we lucked out to run across this place on trip advisor at the last minute. We were fortunate...

This was my family's second time staying with the Inn at Avila Beach. They have the best location, best beach and best customer service. The complimentary Popsicles, popcorn, cookies, apples, bottled water and homemade pies are an added bonus. They also supply the beach gear: chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, towels, bikes, and shovels and pails for sand play. The sun...

I had some time in between my southern and Northern California trip. This was a perfect stop and a perfect hotel. The rooms are unique and comfortable. The pie is tasty and popsicles are a nice treat. The rooftop area has a BBQ and plenty of space to enjoy the amazing view.

This was a great experience. It was so close to the beach and shops. My 12 & 14 year old kids loved staying here and want to come back for their bdays. The employees were do friendly and generous with the snacks. I loved the record player and access to the rooftop beach view!

We spent a one night get-away at The Inn at Avila Beach. Our room was ready when we got there early! We relaxed on the roof-top balcony after arriving, lounging on couches with many pillows. The ocean view from the balcony was beautiful, we even saw some whales! The pie and ice cream at eight o'clock was delicious and unexpected,...

Beautiful area to visit. It has a small town vibe with a sense of class. Lots of entertainment available and the weather could not be better most of the year. Special events available. Service was excellent

I could not speak more highly of the Inn at Avila Beach! We felt right at home the minute we arrived...from the thoughtful and attentive service, to the beach side location, incredible and relaxing deck (with great views and sea life), warm chocolate chip cookies, homemade pie, updated and comfortable room (with a spa tub), and a morning breakfast basket...this...

This is the second time we have stated at the Inn since April and absolutely love everything about it. The rooms are comfortable, uniquely adorable and comfortable. The staff is friendly and accommodating and the little "extras" make the stay just that much more amazing. It is a perfect destination for my husband and I and our 2 little girls!

Great location and atmosphere. Beach toys to use and fresh baked pies and cookies. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. It's not you cookie cutter big name hotel which makes the stay even more enjoyable ........ I hope to return and stay longer.

We stayed in the Modern Spa Room. It didn't have a view, but that was no problem. They have a comfortable sun deck that felt very private and our room had a skylight window we left open to hear the waves at night. The service was very friendly and Ryan took the time to give me a tour while he...
