Beautiful setting and very nice rooms. Pool and spa are perfect temps even in winter. Love to hear the waves crashing from the room at night. Clean and well furnished rooms with plenty of space. The location is perfect to access the beach and the local shops and restaurants. Never have to drive!

My friend and I went for her 30th birthday. We loved Avila Lighthouse suites. We had the 2 queens with a park view. You could easily have slept 6 people in the room. The decor is adorable and the room is very functional. The living room had a pull out couch, a chair, and a dresser with a sink, fridge,...

Room 100 was awesome, beach view is great. $350/night is pretty steep for a January (6th) Friday night but we were desperate. I won't pay that again so doubtful I'll be back. If they come down on price I'll definitely be back!!!!!!!!!!!!

This was my second time at Lighthouse Suites but my husband's first time. I took him there for our 23rd Anniversary. He loved it. We will return again. Beds are so comfortable, suite is so roomy, and I love the Cape Cod feel of the property.

Not given the room as requested even though it was confirmed through multiple phone conversations. Did not enjoy the street level patio situation as it did not provide privacy. Found a dingy, worn robe behind a fresh robe in the closet. Requested that it be replaced. This was done promptly. Location was great for wine tasting in the area.

Avila Beach is a charming coastal town near San Luis Obispo. It has an exceptional micro-climate which keeps it sunnier than Pismo Beach and Shell Beach to the south. The beach and boardwalk area are very clean, easy to walk, and have several restaurants, bars and shops all along. It's a very pretty sandy beach with a few walking piers...
