We had a great stay at Avania Inn. Michael and Daniel were both fantastic and incredibly helpful. The room was very clean and it’s a perfect location. Close to the beach and all other attractions. Great sports park across the street. We will definitely be returning.

We stayed at Avania Inn for our 48th wedding Anniversary. It's close to the beach nestled in a beautiful neighborhood. Avania Inn was a great find. Our room was clean and comfortable. Our host Michael Green gave us excellent service. Sterns Wharf, the Amtrak station, the beach, coastal bike path, shops and restaurants are walking distance. I highly recommend this place.

From the moment we first called to make a reservation to our check out time. The service was amazing. Michael Green and the rest of the staff were welcoming and professional. The beds were more comfortable than some of the other hotels we’ve stayed at. Even though it was a smaller hotel, the service was 5 star. We will definitely be back!

We had a very pleasant experience on our stop over at the Avania Inn. We were driving down to San Diego and spent one night in Santa Barbara. It was made even better with the friendliness of the staff, especially Michael Green and Gloryann Thompson. Thanks

Recently traveled here to enjoy a much needed vacation with my family. The hotel was well maintained, clean and the beds were really comfortable! Some of the staff in particular went out of their way to help make this stay a perfect one! Glory and Jake the management team there were so friendly and accommodating and you can tell they truly enjoy their jobs and taking care of their guests. Great location walking distance to alot of things to do and the pool and hot tub being open were a plus! Can't wait to come back and visit this gem of a hotel. Thank you again Avania for a great stay!
