We booked this at the last minute as we were in Yosemite NP during the Government Shutdown and had our reservation cancelled,. Instead of staying in the area, we decided to go for a beach stay. We paid $199 for a "Courtyard" room, which turned out to overlook the car park (no courtyard).
The hotel overlooks Avila Beach and is an ideal location, but only a few rooms have ocean views and have been renovated. The rest are "Courtyard" rooms and are very dark.
Our room was clean and comfortable, but we had to have the electric light on during daylight hours to enable us to see, there was so little light coming into the room.
The amenities are plenty, with no restriction on bottled water available at all times, freshly baked cookies are available during the day and freshly baked pies in the evening.
Beach chairs, toys, boogie boards etc are available at no charge for guests to take to the beach.
There is a roof area with seating and tables where one can sit with a drink and watch the sunset - that is if you can find space as the area was taken over for birthday/family parties when we were there.
As the hotel is so ideally situated for the beach, I would stay again but only in a ocean view room.
The 4 stars I have allocated are for the location amenities and friendliness.More
