This place was extremely clean and the location is awesome. Mere steps to the beach. The continental breakfast wasn't too shabby either. I would have given five stars except the A/C system is old and does not work properly....if at all. It looked like the original hardware was on the wall. I didn't officially complain because as I was checking...

We stayed here one night during a little winter road trip down the coast. Charming hotel with a great location just steps from the beach. Pleasant surprise at check-in: free cookies! Our room was very cute, comfy bed. Free breakfast was good, nice selection of continental items, including waffles. Our girls (11 and 7) enjoyed the pool and hot tub....

Our suite was beautiful, clean, & comfortable. King sized mattress was very comfortable, & we loved sleeping with the patio door open. Breakfast has lots of self serve choices, pool area looked clean, and closeness to the beach can't be beat. Staff is friendly and helpful. We loved staying here!

We booked an ocean front suite with two queen beds. We were on the second story with a balcony facing the ocean. You walk into a sitting room that had a fold out couch, refrig., a small sink and a desk. The couch mattress was better than most as far as comfort was concerned. Then there is a bathroom and...

There were a few shops and restaurants... a quieter alternative to Pismo Beach area. The 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite was clean, spacious, and came with a fireplace in each of...

Located right next to the Avila beach, this hotel is a wonderful place. The rooms are spacious, with a private bedroom and balcony off the entry room. Everything is in very nice shape. Our room had a king bed in the bedroom and a queen sized sleeper sofa in the entry room. Wet bar and refrigerator in the main room...

Our favorite place to stay in Avila beach. If you want to hear and smell the ocean, have sunset views and a beautiful room this will be your favorite place too. We have been coming here for over 5 years and will continue to do so!
