Stayed here for a long weekend get away and it was really peaceful. Had to book one of the larger accommodations at the top of the hill. Tried out the spa massage (great) free yoga (fun), nature walk (not long to the top, but you can walk for miles once you get to the top). Couple of places nearby to... More

This was a super fun spa experience. Spa is outdoors among trees. The water smells like chlorine. Staff was friendly, and accommodating. The gift shop was filled with fun trinkets. If I ever need a gift for anyone I will surely remember this place.

Campground right next to a road, very loud early in the morning. Tent campground way too expensive ($45/night) and bathrooms were very dirty. Overall the whole campground is not recommendable, we didn't enjoy the stay and left very early in the morning...

Our camping experience at Avila Hot Springs last night was far from pleasurable due to the very rude and disrespectful group camping at the tent site directly next to us. We enjoyed a wonderful day biking from the Hot Springs to Avila Beach along the conveniently located Bob Jones Trail and then visited downtown SLO for dinner and some live... More

We paid $8 for the sunset rate after 6pm to soak in the mineral springs after a long day in the car. The place was fine but could use some updates. They have a great resource with the mineral spring there and could really make the place something special. We soaked in the mineral pool and then swam in the... More

Please don't stay here. We are writing this review to share an impossible situation we experienced. I book our stay based on the beautiful pictures on the web page and the things the desk told me when I called for a reservation. Neither of those conveyed the reality. The camp sites are dirt. No grass. No trees. No shade. They... More

I booked this last minute upon our arrival in San luis Obisbo with my 3 kids. It was a great little find. We booked a cabin to stay in last minute when our amtrak train ran too late for us to drive the PCH. The cabin was wonderful! Fully stocked kitchen and linens on all beds and clean. I was... More

We arrived at the resort and while checking in there was a homeless couple that was asking if they could stay again because they had no other place to go. When we drove to our tenting location it was all dirt and rocks. We couldn't imagine how we were going to put up a tent on rocks. Then the homeless... More

The Avila Hot Springs "Resort" website promises "rustic, dry camping". True, if you consider camping in a dirt parking lot camping. And you are completely ok with the long term "camper" who stands on the porch of his cabin screaming at campers while he throws a beer can at your car. They get a point for returning our money without... More

We had a good time & staff was very friendly and helpful. But I do have one complaint, they lock the restrooms to early & don't open them until 8am. They do have a portable restroom but it's for the whole campsite.
