We love this hotel! So friendly. Edward is wonderful, showing you around when you arrive. They serve cookies, pies, ice cream, pop cycles (anytime), coffee and tea every evening at 8. Left overs served the next morning. Sun deck is amazing. Sat up there for a few hours drinking wine and watching the sun set. They also have a video...

I've wanted to stay here for awhile and tried to book once before. However, I reserved a room on the phone & then was told upon arrival my room was booked to someone else while I was on my way! I was told to try again another night as it was the last room. I heard about the new renovations...

Older inn but on the ocean and the staff is 10+. We only spent one night there on our way to SF but want to return. Of course,, the summer crowds were gone and in November one can enjoy all the views, restaurants, hikes etc. without crowds. My husband loved the fresh fruit and cookies and then warm pie served...

We came to the inn to celebrate a friend's wedding nearby. The boutique accommodations were perfectly charming. My boyfriend loved the pies every night -- so much that we had to plan our dinners around it by the end of our stay. The service was wonderful, and we felt like we were in our home away from home.

This was our first visit. We lucked out with an ocean-view room. The view from the balcony was lovely and the sound of the breaking waves was all we needed for nap time and bed time. Avila Beach can get pretty busy on the weekends but since the Inn is on the south edge of town, it is away from...

The Inn at Avila Beach was wonderful in so many ways. We were in 209 which overlooks the Ocean and spent evenings on our terrace and slept to the sounds of the Ocean. The people were terrific, with a personalized check-in. Terrific in-room amenities. A 75" in-room TV! Coffee all day with good creamers. Free refreshments. Home made pie every...

Hard to beat this place, laid back, on the beach, within an easy walk to restaurants, shopping, and beach town nightlife. There is a furnished, roof top patio to sit and watch sunsets. Some of the rooms have heart-shaped hot tubs. Not far from the wine country around Paso Robles.
