Wowed by Avila Lighthouse Suites! I travel frequently but have rarely experienced such extraordinary service and personal warmth from front desk staff. On a sunny but cool and uncrowded winter's day in the charming beach town of Avila my husband and I had a romantic whim to extend our afternoon visit. Presenting ourselves with no reservations but high hopes of... More

Love your hospitality and friendliness. It is a great way to spend the Thanksgiving Holidays away from home. Our family wants to keep this tradition going. We love the rooms have a living area. The location being across the street from the beach is fabulous. We love the fact that you do not have to drive anywhere once you are... More

Nice facility, wonderful location and staff. Quite pricey for average room with uncomfortable beds and pillows. Breakfast is included, but nothing special. Pool was great and parking was convenient. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Stayed here as a stop traveling from LA to SF. The property was extremely well located, just in front of the beach. The room was very clean and breakfast was a great experience, with our kids getting to make their own pancakes, Great place for families.

Available Lighthouse Suites is conveniently located on the ocean and next to a charming boardwalk with a variety of restaurants and shops nearby. The layout of the suites is well organized and charmingly decorated. The beds are comfortable, and the room is always clean. We've stayed here a number of times and will again. It's our favorite place to stay... More

Beautiful beachfront property. Very clean, well maintained property. Restaurants just down the boardwalk. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Peaceful and serene. The only negative is the extremely firm beds which we found uncomfortable.

We have stayed here twice and enjoyed both visits. During our last stay we had a 2 bedroom suite that seemed more like an apartment. There were 2 bedrooms, a nice size living room area that was completely separate, 2 bathrooms and a covered balcony that wrapped around the suite. We love how walkable this hotel is to everything in... More

This was our first visit to this hotel and really enjoyed our stay. The staff was very nice and efficient. The grounds are beautifully maintained. Access to the beach, easy walk across the street. Our room was large and comfortable with a view of the pacific. I would stay her again if I return to the area.

Early November at Avila Beach promise a very quiet beach, warm sunny skies and relaxation. This hotel has large rooms with a balcony that looks over pool or ocean front. They have a breakfast buffet. Just walk across the street and you are on the beach. Plenty of good restaurants and bars near by. Hard to beat

The staff was great and the views were amazing! The location is perfect for exploring Avila Beach, and the pool area is really nice too. The breakfast was really boring, a few things in our room needed fixing, and the biggest issue was noise. Other guests were really noisy - I think sound travels like crazy here for some reason.

“Best tip: Avail yourself of the well stocked, complimentary breakfast spread they put out in the galley every morning. Take your selections and enjoy at your leisure in your beautiful suite. It easily sustained us through all the fun until afternoon when we would enjoy a lavish late lunch (the Custom House right around the corner facing the ocean is awesome for this) and skip the bloated feel and expense of a big vacation meal just before bed. The fridge and microwave in the kitchen area paired with the comfortable sitting room make midnight snacking an enjoyable relaxation rather than an awkward in-room wolfing.”
