Wonderful place to stay,very close to the beach and all the shops. The rooms are spacious and very comfortable, and the views are beautiful. I would recommend Avila Lighthouse Suites to anyone. We will be back as soon as possible.

Avila suites were exactly what we were looking for. Easy access, comfortable, beach access, friendly. Definitely will be back. Besides made lots of 4 legged friends down at the beach enjoying my coffee each morning.

We always look forward to staying at this property because of the conveniences; pool, checkers, beach, ping-pong and downtown area within a short walk. It has become our Hawaii (excepting Luau's) away from Hawaii.

Our stay was fantastic. Everyone who works there is friendly and helpful. It runs like a well-oiled machine which is very impresssive. As a Tour Director by profession, I notice and appreciate their hard work to make it look so easy.

The hotel was very clean and looks like it was just built. The rooms are nice sized and have pleasant decor. The staff was friendly. The location is great, right in the heart of the small town of Avila Beach. The beach is literally across a quiet street from the hotel. Also, the town's restaurants and wine tasting rooms are...

I wanted to love this hotel and if I was just reviewing the room, I would give it 5 stars. Our room for four was spacious with a small sitting room - plenty of room for 2 adults and teens. Great location, friendly staff and the grounds were well maintained - BUT we were so disappointed in the breakfast buffet...

This was a very nice hotel with a beautiful view. Our suite was clean and spacious with a kitchen area and best of all, a wonderful balcony facing the ocean! The only dissapointment was a large group with lots of kids who allowed the kids to ride scooters all over the property (breakfast room, pool deck, parking garage, etc) even...

Now that direct flights on Alaska are possible from Seattle to San Luis Obispo, this is an easy breezy sunny weekend. Stay at Avila Lighthouse Suites was perfect. Just love the vibe along the beach, inviting at any age.

We stayed 5 nights on recent road trip. Wished we had taken the kids to this well located family orientated hotel back in the day but it was not really for us now as a couple seeking different things. The property could not be better located on the beach almost, It is easily accessed from Highway 101, has ample parking...
