booked it on line and saw Costco price for queen room, honestly never looked any further at detail. Was surprised when we walked into room and did not see a bed, but saw a kitchen? It was a Murphy bed?? Not what we expected at all. However they were great and upgraded us to what we expected. Staff and service were great. If you like a fresh croissant, good wine and great pies and snacks, you will love it.

Room tip: look at all get details on room

My husband and I are already talking about when we can return to this hotel. It has a great location and is within walking distance to the beach and pier. From the welcome complimentary snack basket we received in our room to the complimentary wine they have in the evening with delicious appetizers we were impressed with how this hotel strove to make us feel at home. The rooms are oversized and spacious. Yes, our room had a Murphy bed, but that provided us room to snuggle up on the couch as watch one of they many movies they have available to borrow and watch. They have an honor snack room which you can buy anything you need at cost. My husband and I will definitely be back.

What an amazing experience here at Avila La Fonda!! From the time we walked through the door, we were greeted by the general manager Chris who was very pleasant and accommodating. What this hotel offers is A wonderful experience where you feel like this is your home,,from morning hot crossiants, lunch nacho bar (thanksgiving turkey and ham on thanksgiving),evening wine and cheese and homemade pies at night. Being able to just grab a beach chair on the way out the door left us with less stress going to th beach. We will only be staying at Avila La Fonda in the future as the staff is amazing and caring for all the guests that stay here. My expectations were surpassed. Thank you everyone at Avila La Fonda! Anyone that has left a negative review is beyond crazy!! If you want to be impressed stay at Avila La Fonda!!

Our stay at Avila La Fonda was a gift from our son & daughter-in-law for our 44th wedding anniversary & what a special gift it was! It has a Bed & Breakfast feel because it's small & the staff are so warm & accommodating. It has no pool, rec room, tennis court BUT IT DOESN'T NEED THEM! You're greeted with the best chocolate croissants in the morning I've ever had, a nacho bar at noon (with Coronas & virgin margaritas!) a wine reception at 5pm with enough hors d' oeuvres to call it dinner, but at 8pm was the highlight......fresh, hot pie a la mode & coffee! There were 2 red roses in our room & we left with a little parting gift from the hotel. We will recommend Avila La Fonda to all our friends & will be going back as soon as possible. It's only 1 block from the beach but you never have to leave the hotel if your don't want to. It provides everything you will need for an unforgettable stay. Dave & Kate L. Castro Valley, CA

Congratulations on 44 years or marriage, that is quite the accomplishment!

So glad we stumbled upon this little gem! It's a cute little boutique hotel right in the heart of Avila and just about a block and a half from the beach. The rooms are comfortable and clean, with a great gift basket. Our room even had a jacuzzi tub! All the amenities are great....Wine receptions, fresh baked pies, chocolate croissants in the morning! The staff are so nice and welcoming they really made it seem like we were staying in their home! We will be back
