Avila Lighthouse provides an exceptional location to enjoy the cool ocean breeze and beach area. Very close to eateries so there is no need to drive. We didn't use our car the entire time of our stay.

Everything that I requested was in the room for me to make my proposal to my fiancé. One of the staff members Rafael took pictures of the proposal for our memory book. Our stay was beyond our expectations. We look forward to returning every year on our anniversary date.

Very nice, cozy, beach front hotel ina a small beach town. The stay would have been perfect if the weather had been nice as well, but it was somewhat compensated by the heated pool and jaccuzzi. Would return

We love the Lighthouse, the one and only opportunity for improvement is the mattress on the king bed was very hard. We will be back!!!! It was wonderful to sit on our balcony and watch the waves roll in and out during sunrise and sunset.

A truly wonderful place to rest and relax. The rooms are clean, charming and very comfortable. We spent part of the day roaming through antique stores in Santa Margarita and also enjoyed visiting old San Luis Obispo and shopping. We had lunch at the Splash Cafe...yum! Then later we relaxed on the beach in Avila and listened to the surf...

First the good: location within Avila. CAN'T. BE. BEAT. But, alas location in and of itself does not make an "excellent" hotel. I've been here a couple times over the years so I (like some others here I see) pretty much knew what to expect. There were 2 issues that they need to address. Address these and the hotel will...

Dear worldtravelerpluto, Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review. We have had an issue with Ants over the Summer and have worked tirelessly with our pest control company as well as our housekeeping department to try and keep them away. The issue is gone now that the hot summer months seem to be behind us....

Beautifully situated to the beach and stores. The pool was great! The rooms are comfortable if somewhat dated and in need of a refresher. I expected more from the accommodations for the price. Had a good time overall!

Nice property. However the property is clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly. We enjoyed the pool and giant checkers board. They offer a complimentary continental breakfast which did not look so good to us so we skipped it. It was a very short walking distance to nearby restaurants. Unfortunately the beds were too firm and very uncomfortable. We...

Nice tour, enjoyed the history. Beautiful scenery. Enjoyed the whole tour our guide was very informative. Would recommend to all ages. I liked the cottage where the lighthouse keeper lived. The rooms were decorated to the period of time. They had a bldg available to rent for receptions too.
