“Great Oceanfront Location”
Reviewed 29 August 2010

Just back from Avila Beach and the Lighthouse Suites. If you want the Pacific right in front of your room and a beach where you can actually swim, this is the right place. Lots of families with kids around - so if you don't like that, stay away! We enjoyed our stay very much! Suites are bright and clean with comfortable beds, a second TV in the living room and a kitchenette.
We got the 1st floor master suite facing the ocean that we had requested. Amazing view and very quiet. Breakfast is rather basic and very noisy (too many people in a small room).
Don't miss The Olde Port Inn Restaurant at Hartford Pier (5 min drive). Srumptious seafood!

Avila Lighthouse Suites offers everything for a relaxing family vacation at the beach. Great weather, small town feel, and great accomodations. Food choices are not many but restaurants are a short drive away.

While travelling between San Francisco and Los Angeles, we were lucky to take a turn to Avila Beach and get the last room at this very nice resort. If they had have had a room available for the next night we would have stayed too! Our suite had a King bedroom, as well as a large lounge room and bathroom. Included is a microwave, small fridge & sink. So perfectly suitable to stay a few days & relax. Avila Beach is such a beautiful quiet location. We enjoyed a good meal and lovely beach & pier walk before our departure. The facility is definitely geared towards families and/or conferences. We were neither (just a mature couple on a road trip) but would still recommend it.

We just got back from a lovely trip to Avila Beach. Our suite provided plenty of room for our family. My oldest daughter loved having the pullout couch and her own tv in a separate room from the rest of us so she could stay up late and sleep in too! The hotel is very clean,and everything appears new. The beds were super comfortable, roomy, the service is great, everyone is friendly and accommodating. We could not have asked for a better hotel. Avila Beach is a very quiet, sleepy little town, and pretty much shuts down by 9 each night. Downside: there's only one restaurant within walking distance so you'll have to drive to eat. If you're looking for night life, you'll need to go somewhere else. But if you're looking for beautiful quiet beaches, you've found paradise.

The hotel is in a perfect location, across the street from the beach & a playground. We stayed on a Monday night & the rate wasn't too bad, we would stay again if the rate was the same are not much higher. The room we had was a 2 queen room which has a separate room with sofa bed, it was perfect for our family. Room was clean & had the all the needed amenities except wireless internet. My only complaint was that the vending machine was broken & since the town shuts down early on a week night in spring finding a snack was impossible! Guess we should have planned ahead! This trip was spur of the moment & short but we would have enjoyed staying longer, especially in the summer!

Travelling in the West with my family we spent 2 nights in Avila Beach. The hotel was really nice, fresh rooms, nice pool area and good location by the ocean. Nothing to complain over. The room could fit 5 persons which was great. This made the choice possible from a budget perspective. Having to live in 2 rooms would have been very expensive and we would have chosen another place.
