The hotel itself is clean. Loved the upper deck with the hammocks and couches to relax with a glass of wine. Homemade pie at night was a nice touch .Just had a problem with the fireplace that wouldn't completely shut off. Room was very hot and ceiling fan was loud as well as the refridgerator. All in all, the room...

We stayed in the newly renovated Modern Spa Room, and it was beautiful. The spa in the room was great, and the details in the rooms décor were very nice. From the barn wood mantle and furniture, the wood look plank tile floors, beautiful custom bathroom sink and amazing Rain Shower with pebble tile floors, it was all very special....

Jeff, thank you so much for your kind words! We are absolutely in love with our brand new Modern Spa rooms. Our hotel owner did an amazing job in designing them himself. Thank you very much for the picture as well. You perfectly captured what the room is all about: romance and relaxation! We hope to see you again soon!...

First impressions of hotel were not brilliant as it was obvious that there was considerable building work going on, this proved not to be a problem as the work did not start too early and the builders we encountered were friendly. The manager asked us to pay for an upgrade which we declined as we were only staying one night...

Thank you so much for your review! Our Oceanfronts are one of a kind aren't they? That is too bad you couldn't spend an extra night with us. Thank you for pointing out that we are not a usual chain hotel. That is something that we strive for! We hope you join us again soon! Alexandra Jacopetti Director of Communications

My girl and I stopped in at Avila Beach after stops at Paso Robles and Cayoocus. It was our first time in this small beach town and shortly after coming into town we knew we were at least going to spend one night. We drove down the main road along the beach and came across the "Inn at Avila Beach"...

Sat on the balcony overlooking the ocean till sundown. Slept with the door open and enjoyed the ocean breezes and sound of the waves! Great room! Clean with a cool shower! I would recommend this hotel when in the area.

Our only mistake is that we only stayed here one day. Firstly there will be people who are expecting a new hotel who will be disappointed. This can be seen in some of the reviews...Then there are people who enjoy the amazing location, rustic feel, beautiful family room, the fresh cookies and pie and the amazing sun deck. It was...

Edward and his staff continue to be the best on the Central Coast. Rooms are updated, comfortable and there is not a closer room to the water anywhere. We have been coming here for 10 years and it is our favorite. They offer family rooms, ocean front rooms with balcony, all are well appointed and super comfortable. All have sitting...

If you are a fan of cookie-cutter hotels, this is not the place for you. However, if you are willing to step out of the ordinary, the Inn at Avila Beach will reward you for it! Think hippie-magic.
