Construction was horrible! Woke me up early every day! Was unauthorized sleep in on my vacation. Opted out of room service one day & was never fully restocked the remaining days i.e.- toilet paper. Ants were visable in our room & thermostat was broken & was fixed

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...

Overall, our stay was good. There was mold in the showers though and the couch bed was very uncomfortable- please see my comments. Even though we are disappointed with some changes- we will come back!

My husband and I treated our family. This was a huge expense for us, but it was a lifetime memory for us, our children and grandchildren! I am sure that we made too much noise, but it was all happy noises. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Really liked this place. Can imagine it would be great for families and the rooms are great. Great facilities and we're there on a perfectly sunny day. I thought the best value and accommodation on what we saw available in Avila.

Great sleep and lots of fun. Pool was nice and clean! Loved walking access to local spots, golf, beach, park, great for kids! Liked the closeness to wine tasting, and hiking. Nice coffee, water, and tea all day in the lobby. Will return!

My 95 year old mother stayed at Avila Lighthouse Suites for four nights. The staff bent over backwards to make her stay pleasant accommodating her every need. They offered her the beach wheelchair so she could see her great grandchildren play on the beach. She can be fussy but she was so delighted and happy with the accommodations.

Great hotel, room and service! The front desk gave us a great room with a view of the pool and the ocean! We went for a walk on the boardwalk, shopped, ate and had a ball! The sound of the waves was awesome during the night!

We had a room facing the park. It was on the second floor, but the noise from the park next door was too much for sitting on the balcony. No worries, the beach is just steps away. The bed was comfortable, and having a separate sitting area is always more comfortable than having to sit on the bed to read...

This is such a gem. Definitely come with your family. Spacious rooms and great facilities. Steps away from the beach where there are swings, mellow waves and tide pools to explore off to the right. The free breakfast is decent and you can get coffee and tea all day complimentary.
