This was our first trip to Avila beach- we loved staying at this hotel- great, warm pool and right on the beach. Delicious included breakfast with bacon, hard boiled eggs, cereal and several other options. We will definitely stay there again.

As soon as we arrived, checking in was easy, quick, and a warm welcome. Location was awesome. Wish we could’ve stayed longer. Breakfast was nice too. Staff was friendly and quick to respond to requests.

I stayed in an ocean view room and it was well worth it. To hear the waves crash along the sand was wonderful. Right across from the beach. You can park your car and not have to get in to do a think. Restaurants and beach are very close.

A top family favorite but visit was very disappointing. Broken bathroom door, Leaky AC and busted front door made up for a less than ideal stay. Will reconsider whether to stay in the property in the future as it is pretty expensive.

Quaint, clean, perfect location! The rooms are spacious, with comfortable beds....perfect for a seaside stay. The grounds surprisingly offered mini golf, ping pong and other yard games. Sitting areas were so comfortable. Good breakfast and AMAZING daily cookies! Perfect for a family getaway. We will be returning!

I wish I had taken pictures prior to housekeeping coming to our room, but I was so appalled by our room that I didn’t think to do that. Upon arrival, we were greeted with food crumbs on the floor, spilled sticky liquid that had dried, and blood on the hallway and bathroom walls. We called housekeeping immediately and were first met with “are you sure it’s not yours?” I’m a nurse - I would clean up my own blood without hesitation. Housekeeping failed to even apologize. She took pictures, cleaned with bleach and left. Aside from the cleanliness, the location is fabulous but with the prime location comes serious street traffic that kept us up all night. Even with doors and windows closed, you can hear virtually everything in the ocean front suites. Breakfast was great, and had it not been for lack of cleanliness I would recommend this hotel.

Though welcomed, I am quite dismayed by your account of your stay at our Avila Lighthouse Suites as we receive so many lovely guest compliments about our team. There can be a few challenges on very busy days, but your experiences are not acceptable at any time. As a teachable moment, we have shared your feedback with our team for urgent review as we are always seeking to improve the overall guest experience. Our Housekeeping Manager has taken proper action to ensure these missed opportunities are not repeated. We hold ourselves to very high standards. Our goal is to always provide our guests with exceptional service, cleanest rooms, and memorable experiences. I must admit that this is not common feedback. We remain concerned but do offer our sincerest apologies that your experience was not the desired one. I do hope you can give us another chance in the future to show you how wonderful our property really is, and I would love to have you back to experience the Avila Lighthouse Suites the way most of our guests do, leaving only with fond memories and not the frustration that I feel from your review.

We plan an annual trip to meet up with family. Never disappoints, we have been going for multiple years now. Highly recommended! Have to admit it’s a little pricey and not as much fun as previous years due to Mr Rick’s not have any live music or live entertainment.
