Booked this hotel a year ago for our daughter's Cal Poly commencement, that's how excited we were to stay here. The only time we spend this much per night was in Japan, but this was a special occasion. The reception was very friendly, and the room was clean upon arrival. We slept pretty well, the bed's and pillows were average....

Just spent a long weekend in Avila Beach with our two teenage boys, 14 and 17. Have never been to AB, and we had a great time! Hotel suite was clean and well appointed. Beds were comfortable. 2 queens and a pull out couch with two rooms/two tvs was ample space for the four of us. Continental breakfast was simple...

Beautiful and relaxing location. It's a beautiful place for Leadership Meetings. Staff is friendly and attentive. Hearing the ocean from your room is a added bonus. We enjoy working in such a peaceful location.

Great location, beautiful rooms. Truly a must stay spot for anyone. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was fantastic with many options to choose from. The checkerboard and ping ping were a hit with the kids.

Avila beach is a quaint but very busy ocean village where the sun shines much more than its more populated neighbor to the north, Pismo Beach. Lighthouse Suites made our 3 night stay even sunnier. Really appreciated they did their best to honor the requests we made when we booked online, even giving us a call a few weeks ahead...

We love staying here with our kids. The location next to the beach with an available pool is perfect. Plus there is a nice park near by as well. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance so you never have to get back in car if you don't want to.

Fabulous, amazing and wonderful little hotel! It's so charming, in a great location, and the pool is nicely secluded from the wind of he bay. This is a great little gem. The rooms are perfect for families with kids too.

The staff is nice... the rooms are well appointed and kitschy... I've traveled to SLO twice for business and stayed here both times and I can't wait to travel to SLO for business again! It's very close to the beach and has a few good restaurants around... a perfect family getaway, actually.
