I stayed at the Inn at Avila Beach for the first time at the end of August, beginning of September, and I will be back. The Inn isn't a Marriott, a Holiday Inn, or a Four Seasons. It isn't cut from a hotel chain cookie cutter, and it isn't for everyone. But it is a marvalous experience for those who appreciate something non-corporate and down to earth - with spectacular views and access to the beach. It really is like a Mexican beach house, with colorful art, walls, and furniture (especially on the gorgeous rooftop sunporch facing the ocean that lets you really, really relax in broad hammocks, wicker chairs, and daybeds made up with bedding and pillows for an afternoon siesta. Also on the sunporch are barbeques so you can make your own dinner while watching the sun go down. The place doesn't have phones in the room or internet connections, but it does have the best location in town (and right next to Yo Mama's Coffee, too!), a staff that actually thanks you for coming, and a slowed-down version life that I could easily get used to. I needed a break from everything, and this was the best, more restorative getaway I've had in many years.

Avila Beach is a tiny, charming little beach-front town. If you are looking for a quiet place to relax, Avila is wonderful. The Inn at Avila Beach is right across the road from the beach with large sliding glass doors that lets you listen to the ocean waves as you drift off to sleep. The large balcony off our room quickly became the center of our stay because of the gorgeous view and the smell and sound of the ocean. Social types will love the top deck of the Inn where visitors have a 360 degree view.

Other travelers have commented that the Inn is a little dated and if you are expecting a 5 Star resort, you may be disappointed in the accommodations. However, if your intent is more a beach front cottage, where you can spill out of bed, pull on casual clothes and be out combing the beach or walking along the pier within a couple of minutes, the Inn at Avila beach will not disappoint. There is no internet access in the rooms and even our mobile phones did not work in Avila, but we quickly gave into the call of the beach and vacation and truly relaxed. The staff at the Inn were friendly and helpful and we loved our down-time in Avila. We are already looking forward to our next stay.

for our first experience to Avila Beach this hotel was a great find especially the roof top deck. We can't wait to come back with our extended families.

The best thing about this place is the location. There were no chairs, other than the kitchen table chairs. Everything in the room was uneven including the fridge. The walls look like a rainbow threw up on them. There was no phone or elevator and the stair rails were flimsy. There were no lights on the stairs at night. The one thing they could do to correct these faults would be to tear it down and start over.
