    Best location to view the sunset on Avila Beach!

    Best location on Avila Beach to view the sunset! Both the check-in and check-out processes were a breeze. Clean and tidy! I loved the comfortable queen bed!

    Perfect

    Very clean room with a full size kitchen which was perfect and fully supplied with coffee mugs and wine glasses. Friendly staff and we would definitely stay again.

  • 6.0.Good

    The room and service was very good, although after four and one half hours in the car to get there, we did not appreciate the lengthy check-in process. A voucher could have been given so that we could check in more rapidly and return later. Also, although it is flattering for an employee to use a client’s name, it is insulting to use an incorrect name, or names, (twice, two different names, trying to correct himself). Finally, extending one’s stay should not entail a re-registration on the first day of the extension, nor should the extension rate be $200 higher per night than the previous rate. This is a first class facility which we thoroughly enjoyed…however, some services and procedures are a bit rough around the edges.

    Good option in Avila

    We've stayed here twice now. The first time we ended up with a one bedroom suite which was very nice. This last time we got a studio which was ok. The location is great and the grounds are very nice. The village of Avila Beach is walkable from here. We would stay here again.

    Lovely views, close to beach and town

    This hotel offers apartments with lovely views of the ocean. It's a close walk to the beach and the little town of Avila Beach. It also has lovely grounds and a heated pool. The only drawback was there is no marked pedestrian crosswalk to cross the busy road leading into town. Otherwise, it was a wonderful stay.
