If I go to the Pismo/Avila area, I always stay here. Love the split rooms. This is the first time I stayed in the king Felix, ocean front room and I was hoping for a little more space. The surrounding location of Avila's beach and city is great. Love walking to the Custom House and eating outside. The only problem is prime beach/city parking is right […] outside your bedroom slider. (Too loud if you have a little one) maybe I would suggest garden room of you have a young child who naps during the day. Otherwise no complaints of this property Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great family hotel across from the beach"
Stayed for two days with our two young daughters- would loved to have stayed longer! Fabulous location for young families- close to park, beach and restaurants. Great for parents too with wine tastings close by. Room was very comfortable- and breskfast included a fabulous bonus! Will be back again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Family Friendly and terrific atmosphere"
The staff were pleasant and helpful. Most are young and from SLO so they were able to provide some great suggestions for eateries in the area. The rooms are nice and good for families if you get the suites. The beach area is remarkable. Long nice and clean beach that is well protected from large waves. Absolutely the gem of the area and great for kids. In […] general the atmosphere is very good for families. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great place for families"
Great hotel in a lovely setting. I went with my significant other, but I think this hotel is a great place for families especially those with young children. It's extremely clean, friendly, and I really appreciated the nonsmoking policy anywhere on the grounds. I think parents of young kids would appreciate that as well. Although it is a great place […] for families, my boyfriend and I also enjoyed it very much. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Too noisy for the price"
My room was well appointed, roomy, and clean. Everything was fine until the upstairs neighbors returned to their room at midnight, and both proceeded to take showers. The noise the flowing water created in my walls was very loud. The floor had NO sound barrier at all, so I could hear EVERYTHING. I would have expected a better built room for the price […] even hotels dot com got me. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

ROOMS WERE CLEAN AND THE ROOMS DECORATED WITH NICE COLORS. A FLAT SCREEN IN THE BED ROOM WAS A NICE ADDITION.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely spot for family vacation."
It is not a luxury resort, but a great vacation spot for families. pro: The hotel is so close to the beach and a pier where a great fishing is. My husband and my son fished many hours a day catching fish, and watching whales and other sea animals. It was gorgeous everyday. con: Food. Free breakfast was blah. Local food options are limited, but if you […] don't mind driving some distance for food, it's not too bad. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice Suite in Great Neighborhood and Location"
We really enjoyed our stay and the hotel customer service was timely and exceptional - we had a family of 5 so the room sizes were ideal. The pool and activities (not to mention fresh cookies) were great amenities. The only improvements I would recommend would be to put a lock on the bathroom doors, kind of awkward with 5 people in one room :-)Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Enchanting Sea Side Retreat"
What an enchanting experience. The one bedroom suites are well appointed with novel eye catchers like backlite lighthouse lamps and nautical themed decor with a quality handcrafted look. The white water ocean view and the convenience of local restaurants and shops makes this place a destination resort for casual relaxation.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Kid friendly and fun"
We love the location and the hotel accommodations. Avila is just a beautiful little area. The hotel is getting a little tired but overall a really enjoyable family friendly place. Wish the breakfast (which is nice that they include) had some healthier and better quality items. The waffles leave a lot to be desired in terms of the quality of the mix/batter. […] Few options for those with a sensitive palate. We've given up trying to find good food in the town - recommend you eat in SLO or keep driving to Shell or Pismo beach.

"Great Coastal Getaway - Steps away from the beach"
The hotel service, location, and overall value were excellent. The ocean view room we had was an excellent location literally steps away from the beach. The suite-type / kitchenette room we had was excellent with a large entry/living room and small kitchenette. There were two TV's in the room and doors to separate the two individual areas within. A […] few cute things within the room which my wife enjoyed. Personally, I enjoyed the large comfortable bed and the view of the ocean more than anything else in the room. The services and amenities are quite good for the hotel. I really enjoyed the self-serve breakfast as it had a good variety of food and a waffle maker and all the toppings you would want. There is even self-serve washer and dryer on the premises, but only one each so you may be hard-pressed to have accessibility. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had some questions about the Farmer's Market on Thursday in downtown SLO and they were able to answer all questions. I used to go to Cal Poly SLO and it had been some years since I had been to Avila Beach. I can see they really built up the downtown area (a very short walk from the hotel). It has really been upgraded nicely! I would like to see more bars and entertainment venues though as there was only one which stayed open late enough for us while we were staying. The town seems to be more catered to people with families or older type couples (we are in our mid-30's). I read the other reviews about the crosswalk being noisy with the auditory alert, but did not have an issue with this. We stayed in a ocean view room right next to the crosswalk and did not hear it. The only possible complaint we have is the parking structure. It was supposed to be secured and have access to hotel guests only, but the bars to block the entrance and exit were always up allowing anyone to come in. Maybe the key card readers were broken at the time? Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Avila Lighthouse Suites - Relaxing!"
I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights this week. I had to be in San Luis Obispo for business and wanted a nice place to stay that was also a deal. I got more than I expected! The staff was very friendly, my room was large and nicely decorated (surf/beach style rather than just standard hotel decor) and great bathroom. Although I picked a park and not […] a beach/pool view I got both the park and the beach. It was lovely and quiet. It is off season so I'm sure it isn't this quiet during summer. The beach is literally steps away and there is a pool as well. I would love to bring my family back to this town. It is a cute little town that reminds me of So Cal in the 70s - small, laid back and fun. I highly recommend this town and this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"The Hotel Avila"
I love this hotel however, the last three times staying there had to ask for heat in the room. The maintenance man was really good but three times? Would have liked an ocean view room as we had paid for it in December. Our room was downstairs #108 and had a view of the pool. Not sure that we will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect for Famlies"
My family-- husband, one-year-old, and myself-- stayed at the Lighthouse Suites in mid-February. Couldn't have been happier about the room or location. We stayed in the (cheaper) park view room-- perfect for a family with kids (just have to be pretty cautious to keep curtains closed at select times or the whole park will be audience to your goings on). […] The room was big, and the living area very usable. A nice-sized patio looked out over the park. Our only complaint is that our room was not cleaned after our first night, even though we had a "Please service" sign on the door. Never had that happen anywhere before-- odd.

"Come early or take what's left"
The hotel is located in a beauitful location. Our last visit was wonderful, but this visit was not as pleasant. We arrived Saturday afternoon to a chatty front desk staff that seemed to be preoccupied with their own personal conversation. When we went to our room (113) we found it on the corner of the property--walking traffic and elevator noise was […] unacceptable for our romantic get away weekend. We immediately returned to the front desk to request a room change. The front desk clerk said that would not be possible because all rooms were assigned ahead of time. I asked how we could avoid this in the future because we generally make our reservation many months in advance. She simply replied,"Get here on Friday.". Wow--I guess 2 sleepless nights is the price you pay for not arriving on Friday. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The Lighthouse is a spectacular place to stay! Location was perfect, right by the beach and a nice lil park. Walking distance to everything that we wanted to see.

The view from our balcony was magnificant, the heated pool a big hit with our 8 year old, and the room was very comfortable. We loved stepping straight out onto the beach. The staff went the extra mile to find an item we left behind.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was great, we enjoyed all of the amenities and got a great rate on our room. The continental breakfast was fine for the kids, but if you want protein you need to go to a restaurant.
