Avila Beach Hotels

Avila Beach has undergone quite a transformation in recent years, which has only helped to make it one of the top tourist destinations on the central Californian coast. Many folks who are driving between Los Angeles and San Francisco stop at one of the hotels in Avila Beach for a rest. But there’s plenty to do in and around Avila Beach, so enjoying more than just one night here is something worth considering. Besides having access to great beaches, those who choose to stay in Avila Beach can explore numerous shops and restaurants. There are also area wineries and state parks to visit on the side.

When you find yourself looking for lodging in Avila Beach, you won’t be limited to the larger Avila Beach hotels. A couple of bed and breakfast inns can be found here, and couples seeking romantic California getaways will do well to consider a stay at one of them, especially if they opt to go with the luxurious, and somewhat funky, Joe Mamma’s Beachstay B&B. There are also some attractive Avila Beach vacation rentals to consider if you are looking to enjoy some added privacy. You can even book a stay at one of the Avila Beach resorts if you prefer the resort experience. In other words, there is lodging in Avila Beach to satisfy all tastes and preferences, so you won’t want for variety.

For those who are seeking luxurious Avila Beach hotels, the Avila La Fonda Hotel and the Avila Lighthouse Suites Hotel (pictured above) are among the top choices. The Avila La Fonda Hotel aims to set a new standard when it comes to luxury hotels in Avila Beach, and by the look of things, it is doing an excellent job. The 30 guest suites that are on offer at Avila La Fonda are all exquisite, boasting extras like Jacuzzi tubs, plasma TVs, and complimentary bathrobes. Book one of the Great Rooms, and you’ll also enjoy a full kitchen, not to mention other added perks. Should the Avila La Fonda Hotel be out of your price range, you can also consider its sister property, which is the Beachfront Inn at Avila Beach. You’ll be just steps from both the beach and a children’s playground when you stay at the Inn at Avila Beach, and while the rooms and the overall facilities here aren’t luxurious, they just might suit your tastes all the same. The friendly rates are sure to attract some visitors.

Getting back to the luxury Avila Beach hotels, the Avila Lighthouse Suites Hotel is an all-suite establishment that also enjoys a beachfront location. Families will do well to book a stay at Avila Lighthouse Suites, as the hotel boasts a family play area and an outdoor heated pool among its facilities. There is a new spa here where you can indulge in rejuvenating treatments, and the 54 guest suites provide ample space to unwind and relax. All of the suites have both a bedroom and a separate living room with a sofa bed. Among the amenities in each suite are a fireplace, a wet bar, and complimentary signature bath products.

While both the Avila Lighthouse Suites Hotel and the Avila La Fonda Hotel are divine, those who are interested in Avila Beach resorts might opt instead to stay at the San Luis Bay Inn, which is affiliated with the Diamond Resorts Company. Overlooking the ocean from its bluff-top perch, this resort offers small condo units that are full of amenities. Each guest unit features a full kitchen, cable TV, a full bathroom, and a private patio with furnishings. Staying busy at the San Luis Bay Inn won’t be difficult, as hotel amenities include a children’s pool, another outdoor pool, a spa, a game room, a basketball court, bicycle rentals, and picnic areas that are complete with barbecue grills. You can also consider a round of golf on the side at the Avila Beach Resort and Golf Course, which lacks guest rooms of its own.

Don’t forget to check out the mid-priced Avila Village Inn (pictured) when looking for hotels in Avila Beach. The guest rooms and suites at the Avila Village Inn are pretty luxurious in their own right, and even though you’ll pay less here than you will at some of the other upscale Avila Beach hotels, you won’t be sacrificing much. Luxury bedding, ample furnishings, flat-screen TVs, DVD players, and wireless internet are among the amenities in the Avila Village Inn’s rooms and suites, and in-room massage services are available. You can get help planning area tours with the help of the hotel’s concierge staff, and dog-friendly rooms are available as well. Some of the Avila Beach vacation rentals are also rather luxurious and keen on amenities, so it’s always recommended that you consider them when seeking lodging in Avila Beach. As a side note, San Luis Obispo is just seven miles inland, so you can also look into the San Luis Obispo hotels when looking to stay in the area. Morro Bay and Pismo Beach aren’t too far off either.
