Travel Blogs from Avila Beach
the San Luis Obispo wine region where we'd be over nighting in a little town on the beach called Avila Beach. Not long after we'd left Big Sur we noticed a few strange shapes on the beach and upon closer inspection found them to be a colony of elephant seal. It was fascinating to see these massive creatures up close and watch the interaction …
The road trip part of our holiday began at 10am in the Alamo garage across the street from our hotel in San Francisco. I ordered a compact car but the renter man, I think his name was Crockett, shook his head doubtfully and advised I get a bigger one as I was driving a thousand miles. I reminded him I was from England and a compact was, in fact, a bigger car from what I drove normally. I got a Chevrolet Cruze and very nice it is too. Once I'd navigated SF and reached the end of ...
Today we decided to head down to the beach. The weather was only supposed to be in the low 60s so I was a little worried we'd freeze but it was hot. I guess they were right about you can never tell what it's going to be like based off the temp. Avila beach is about a 30 minute drive from Atascadero. We ended up getting to the beach around 1:00. We stopped at a deli by the beach and picked up lunch. We got settled in on the beach and ...
... what in the world we were doing.
On our way around the loop we spy an open site. According to the pole, someone was supposed to be in that site from 7/1 to 7/3. (Today is 7/2.) Hmmm…it’s already 11:30. What are the chances of them showing now? We were willing to take that chance! (Thank you again, Jesus!)
SOOO, we listened to God’s whisper, I was able to sleep peacefully, and we still woke up to the beautiful Pacific Ocean! God is ...
... we left and drove to a winery that Alana had to speak to about a wine evening she is hosting on Friday. Then we headed back and had a snooze. Around 6pm we got up and were thinking of starting dinner which we should have started earlier as Karen, Dale and their friend Claire arrived at 6.30pm. Whist they dug into the snacks, we got busy making chilli and at 7.30pm we all sat down to eat, drink and be merry. Alana made a nice carrot cake with a strange orange ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Avila La Fonda Hotel Avila Beach
Wonderfully Romantic Birthday Getaway
My boyfriend and I stayed a night at this lovely hotel recently and were happily suprised with the room, decor and all of the extras included. We had a nice gift basket full of snacks waiting in the room for us, loved the Aveda products and candles in the bathroom above the jacuzzi. The hotel is one block from the beach, we dined at a really nice restaurant just around the corner. This is the place to stay if you are looking for a romantic getaway. Having made the reservation through Expedia.com we got a 50% discount as well.
My husband took me to Avila La Fonda to celebrate our two year anniversary (Januray 29, 2005)!! We loved it! This place is very romantic and magical. The decorations are very authentic and creative. This place also has everything you can possibly need starting with a Flat Screen TV, DVD player, CD player, IPod Dock, an elobarate coffee maker, towel warmer...I could go on!! They also have a small library of books and movies. We absolutely loved everything about this place and have been recommending it to our friends who already booked their rooms.
I thought this was a beautiful hotel and asked my boyfriend to bring me here for my birthday. I was really disappointed that he had to pay so much for the room. We were on the first floor and the view was a parking lot (actually, you should know it's the view for almost all the rooms). We could hear the noise from the washing machines down the hall.
This one goes to 11!
We celebrated our 11th anniversary there in December. It was so fantastic we are returning in February with several of our friends. This was, by far, the best place we have ever stayed. Avila Beach is a quaint, little town, nestled in between the ocean and hills. The hotel itself is warm, friendly, cozy, and hip. During our stay, we enjoyed wine tasting, had massages right in the hotel, walked on the beach, and had some great meals. Very peaceful and romantic. We enjoyed all of the amenities and little extras. What an awesome place!
Your Own Private Spanish Villa
What a wonderful surprise! This hotel is decorated very nicely. Warm colors throughout the hotel. Our room had a very soft bed with Egyptian sheets. The whirlpool spa for two was a wonderful touch. Upon arriving we were offered chocolate chip cookies. The hospitiality is superb! Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Our room even included a basket of snacks and videos to chose from. What a treat! It was like staying in a private Spanish Villa.
I highly recommend this hotel. We will be back. The hotel is reasonable priced with lots of great features.

If you have seen the growth and development in Avila Beach, Ca , you need to visit the area. Three days of sunshine and we stayed at the new Avila La Fonda hotel and throughly enjoyed our stay. This is a new facility with outstanding rooms and a very friendly environment. The rooms are beautiful and have fireplaces, big screen plasma TV's and spa's.
We paid $150 per night and felt that it was a great price for the room. We highly recommend staying at the hotel.
The hotel is one short block from the ocean and has some limited view of the ocean. Parking is located under the hotel.
My husband and I booked a four-night stay at the Avila La Fonda in mid-October. A brand-new hotel, the rooms are full of high-tech luxuries, such as a gas fireplace, flat-screen TV, DVD player, IPod dock, although the rooms are rather small. The bathrooms include showers for two, although we found the multi-head options awkward. We stayed in one of the rooms with a spa-tub right next to the king-sized bed.
Worth twice the rate
My wife and I agreed that our evening at the Avila La Fonda was the best night of our lives. We stayed in a "Casita" and enjyed both rooms equally. One room had a full kitchen and as many appliances as my home. There was a hospitality suite available to all the guests and the managers held a reception in the evening. We can't recall a time we had so much fun.
The property is more impressive than any we've ever seen. It was obvios to us that much thought went into the attention to detail, from the tile design to the art-work in and around the rooms.
I would recommend the Avila La Fonda to anyone considering a trip to California's Central Coast.
From the moment you get a look at the unique facade of individual "casitas" and the huge wooden doors leading to the lobby, you might suspect you're in for a special experience at the Avila LaFonda Hotel and you'd be right. Between the exceptionally friendly and accomodating staff, the beautiful talavera tilework, stained glass windows, Mexican murals, and fountains galore, this place is bound to become a Central Coast destination for anyone who desires an extraordinary inn over a cookie-cutter hotel.
