Warm colors and funky Mexican touches abounded everywhere. The spacious room also boasted a fireplace, Bose radio, incredible bathroom with huge bathtub, and a welcome basket full...

Rooms were cozy and well appointed, very clean. My wife really liked all the extras it comes with. The reason we don't see ourselves returning is because of our encounters with the staff.

We love La Fonda! The staff were friendly and accommodating, the rooms very clean and comfortable, and so many delicious treats, especially the croissants! Beautiful lobby and hospitality. Avila Beach is a perfectly relaxing destination and we love walking to the nearby wine tasting rooms.
