Hotel is located in prime position on Avila Beach boardwalk, and nicely furnished. However we were disappointed that there were some functional issues with our bathroom and the breakfast was very poor considering the steep price.

If you book an oceanfront room, make sure you request the 2nd floor well in advance. We didn't know this and got stuck on the first floor, which is ocean front, but is obstructed by parked cars, the street and people walking in front of your balcony.

For the cost, I'd expect much more. Beds where not comfortable, especially the pull out couch bed that we had in the king suite. The guests above us where loud and we could here them walking around loudly. Ice machine and elevator were loud making it hard to get any rest of this trip.

Everything is in walking distance, even for lazy people. Avila is a small bay area, beautifully maintained, and not grotesquely overdeveloped. Our room was a double queen suite, so quaint in its...

Perfect vacation for our family of 6 adults and 5 children aged 2-14 years! Loved the suites with separate bedrooms, great breakfasts, craft classes for kids, farmers market on the boardwalk, aquarium enjoyed by all, fabulous walking/biking trail, etc!!!! Will definitely return. We experienced a problem with the tv and was taken care of. Staff very helpful.
