This property is an homage to Spanish villas from long ago, which is aesthetically pleasing; however, it makes adding more modern conveniences troublesome and cumbersome, like air conditioning, which, in the case of our room is a portable unit that takes up floor space, lessening its beauty. There’s a Keurig coffee maker in the room that seems unnecessary because coffee is always available in the lobby area. We had a wonderful private patio that we used a lot, but wasn’t cleaned for a long time until I borrowed a broom to clean it myself. The staff was super attentive and rectified every issue very quickly, but if I pay $500 a night I feel proactivity should come first. No TV channel guide was in the room, no instructions for lighting the outdoor fireplace; I felt like I was constantly having to figure stuff out. The croissants at breakfast were great, as well as the wine and cheese afternoon and the pie in the evening. The location was ideal.

Room tip: Bring a small vehicle if available.

This was our first time staying at the La Fonda Hotel. We decided to stay here to celebrate our 10th anniversary. The staff made our stay so special. This hotel really has thought of all the extra touches from the welcome basket, champagne, nightly pie and ice cream and fresh croissants and coffee every morning. We enjoyed our stay here so much. I would highly recommend staying here. We will definitely be back soon!

We love Avila Beach and La Fonda! Exceptionally polite and helpful staff. Confortable rooms, and thoughful amenities. Only a block from the beachfront. We come back each summer, and highly recommend this property. We love adding our thoughts to the trip journal on the desk in the room. :)

Room tip: We love having a king with balcony on the second floor that overlooks the foutain and courtyard facing First Street..

Our 4th trip to LaFonda was even better than before! Best staff, comfortable lovely room, great amenities…all around, our favorite small hotel in the world. We love the quiet cozy lobby, the fresh pie every night, and the one-block walk to the beach and fun of the Avila waterfront. Couldn’t ask for anything more.
