We went here for our one year anniversary and we were very impressed. This is the definition of a boutique hotel. They had complimentary wine and snacks all around the clock. I would definitely recommend this to any couple wanting a great romantic experience.

It all starts with a personal reception at check-in, followed by a wonderfully friendly conversation with your host regarding the free snacks, laundry facilities, parking, complimentary wine and cheese event and yummy fresh pies that are served every evening. We stayed here on the last day of our road trip to San Francisco and found this beautiful hotel to be a completely different experience from the stinky chain motel adventure. We loved the cozy room, whirlpool bathtub and warming fireplace, along with the DVD library and coffee and chocolate croissant breakfast. Dinner at restaurants within walking distance is first class and affordable. Several nearby trails provide opportunities galore for runners. We chose a romantic sunset walk along the nearby pier and shopping area. The service provided by the staff exceeds that of a five-star rated resort.

Spent our 31st anniversary here. What a great hotel and staff! I don't think we have ever stayed at a hotel that is so service orientated. Loved the croissants in the morning, the nachos at noon, and the wine happy hour and appetizers. We especially enjoyed the young man from Ohio who made sure everyone had enough to drink and eat. All this plus pie in the evening!! The staff is incredible, from check-in to housekeeping, to the guys working in maintenance. Our room was very nice with a balcony, kitchen, and jacuzzi tub. I will admit I am not a fan of the Murphy bed but it was doable. Walk to beach. Be sure and go to the Thursday night Farmers Market in SLO. We had a great time and hit superb weather.

My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary here and we could not have picked a better hotel. I had high expectations due to all of the positive reviews and Avila la Fonda, as well as their staff, did not disappoint. All of the goodies throughout the day and evening
is definitely a nice touch.

My husband booked this place on line. He ordered chocolate & flowers for our anniversary. They forgot to deliver, my husband reminded them & they said they would take care of it. My husband kept me in the lounge to give them a chance to set everything up in our room. When we got into our room, no flowers, no chocolate. My husband was upset. He asked the clerk the next morning to credit our account. She said she could have them delivered today. My husband said it's to late, our anniversary was yesterday. She said ok with a generic apology. Our room although nice had a horrible view of the parking lot. We will not be returning.

We chanced upon this hotel when we arrived in Avila Beach without a booking - and were delighted with it. The room we stayed in had a pull down bed, which was a bit odd. But the room was great, free wifi and jacuzzi bath. The staff were really lovely and helpful. There was free breakfast and other snacks provided, including a bowl of different snacks in your room for free. Breakfast was included - fresh, warm chocolate croissants which were lovely. Selection of games and books were provided for guest use. Parking included under the hotel. Would definitely recommend. Avila Beach is a lovely little town.

Just had our anniversary weekend at Hotel Avila La Fonda and was impressed from the moment we stepped into the beautiful lobby. Customer service so warm and personable. It is a block from the beach and walking distance to everything. From the gift basket full of snacks in our room (as well as complimentary champagne for our anniversary) to the twice daily maid service, the staff go above and beyond to make your stay special. We were fortunate enough to have sunset dinner at the Ocean Grill which had recently opened...Spectacular. Food was exceptional( the swordfish was cooked to perfection), service wonderful and ambience hard to beat. Then to return to the hotel for freshly baked pie and ice cream..Total indulgence!

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the west side of the hotel.We had a room which looked out over the parking lot...
