We always enjoy staying here because of the close proximity to the beach and locations to enjoy the coast. Everything is walking distance. Mattress could be a little more accommodating. Too hard. Staff suggested a new cafe for breakfast that was fabulous and Heather tried to get us a specific room but it was booked. The room we got was...

We stayed for my husband's birthday and it was awesome! The only thing I would like to see is somehow making the checker pieces for the outdoor checker game padded so they are not so loud when being played or bumped around.

My husband and I needed a quick get away trip. We came with another couple and had a great stay at the Avila Lighthouse Suites. No complaints! The rooms are very clean. The beds are very comfortable. And the view of the ocean is spactacular!

The suites are architecturally unique and exquisitely equipped. The landscaping and interior accommodations are luxurious at a very reasonable rate. We felt very pampered and special during our stay. The ocean side boardwalk, shops and restaurants were steps away; there was no need to move the car. Wine tasting and fine dining were the treats we especially enjoyed.

Wowed by Avila Lighthouse Suites! I travel frequently but have rarely experienced such extraordinary service and personal warmth from front desk staff. On a sunny but cool and uncrowded winter's day in the charming beach town of Avila my husband and I had a romantic whim to extend our afternoon visit. Presenting ourselves with no reservations but high hopes of...

Love your hospitality and friendliness. It is a great way to spend the Thanksgiving Holidays away from home. Our family wants to keep this tradition going. We love the rooms have a living area. The location being across the street from the beach is fabulous. We love the fact that you do not have to drive anywhere once you are...

Nice facility, wonderful location and staff. Quite pricey for average room with uncomfortable beds and pillows. Breakfast is included, but nothing special. Pool was great and parking was convenient. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Stayed here as a stop traveling from LA to SF. The property was extremely well located, just in front of the beach. The room was very clean and breakfast was a great experience, with our kids getting to make their own pancakes, Great place for families.

Available Lighthouse Suites is conveniently located on the ocean and next to a charming boardwalk with a variety of restaurants and shops nearby. The layout of the suites is well organized and charmingly decorated. The beds are comfortable, and the room is always clean. We've stayed here a number of times and will again. It's our favorite place to stay...

Beautiful beachfront property. Very clean, well maintained property. Restaurants just down the boardwalk. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Peaceful and serene. The only negative is the extremely firm beds which we found uncomfortable.

“Best tip: Avail yourself of the well stocked, complimentary breakfast spread they put out in the galley every morning. Take your selections and enjoy at your leisure in your beautiful suite. It easily sustained us through all the fun until afternoon when we would enjoy a lavish late lunch (the Custom House right around the corner facing the ocean is awesome for this) and skip the bloated feel and expense of a big vacation meal just before bed. The fridge and microwave in the kitchen area paired with the comfortable sitting room make midnight snacking an enjoyable relaxation rather than an awkward in-room wolfing.”
