“Not a good hotel.”
Reviewed 14 June 2012

I stayed in a suite for 3 days and it was bad. The carpet is torn and not well taken care of, the bathtub has rust on it, the view was of a parking lot on both sides, and it felt just like it was - a converted 1950's apartment building. No air conditioning and the windows are very old cheap aluminum that barely slides. Parking is horendous, so if you have a large vehicle forget it. Overall, I would suggest looking elsewhere

Room Tip: I dont think they have a good room. My cost was $350 per night, and it sucked.

Spent the night in Avila Beach as we headed up the coast; Avila Beach is certainly a wonderful spot and the Inn amplifies the enjoyment. Rooftop area is great, we spent a sunset relaxing in one of the hammocks while sipping wine from the market a few doors away; not a bad way to spend an evening. It was also a huge plus to find that they have a free laundry on the second floor. Greeting was warm and genuine and the hotel was easy to find. If you are staying anywhere in the area stay at this Inn and check out all the other interesting businesses in Avila beach.

Room Tip: Book the room that you really want, don't rely on upgrades. A number of rooms do not have ocean...

We only had one night at the Inn at Avila Beach, but really enjoyed the atmosphere at the hotel. The staff were very welcoming and helpful, and the roof top deck was great - very comfortable and relaxing. The decor was somewhat 'tired'.

Was on a golf trip last week (May, 2012) and originally stayed at the Super 8 in Atascadero since that's where the rest of our group was staying. That was a horrible experience so we packed up and went to the Inn at Avila Beach since it was closer to the golf course. What a great move! Right across from the beach, the Inn at Avila is an absolutely gorgeous setting. Front desk agent was warm and friendly and greeted us with a smile. The hotel is "rustic" and has a certain charm that you won't find in more modern hotels. Excellent stay, highly reccommed!

The Inn at Avila Beach is, as some reviewer said, a bit funky, but such a wonderful spot. I enjoyed not being in a huge hotel for a change. They are in the process of re modeling the bathrooms, which will be a good addition. The decor is wonderful and the wide-open, dog friendly beach is unbelievably uncrowded mid-week in May. Oh yes, ask for a room on the ocean side with a balcony!
