With intricate stained glass windows, tiled floors and designs inspired by traditional Spanish and Mexican architecture, Avila La Fonda Hotel transports guests to a 19th-century Mexican village with charm at every turn. 

Although the hotel does not feature a pool, walk just 50 steps to Avila Beach, which, according to Fodor's, gets "more sun and less fog than any other stretch of coast in the area." Be sure to take advantage of the beach chairs offered for easy relaxation on the sand. Guests can also take a dip in the Jacuzzi tubs -- big enough for two -- available in all rooms. After a soak, cozy up in front of the fireplace and nibble on snacks from the complimentary welcome basket with assorted snacks, water and beverages.

Continue to indulge in countless culinary delights throughout the stay. Start each day right with gourmet coffee and chocolate croissants in the morning. Freshly baked pie from locally renowned Avila Valley Barn is served every evening from 8-10 p.m., while hors d'oeuvres, scrumptious desserts and two varieties of wine from a local winery each month are offered at the wine reception held every evening from 5-6:30 p.m. Be sure to leave some room for the nacho bar held daily from 12-2 p.m., accompanied by beer and fresh local salsa. Last but not least, visit the Chocolate Pantry, which sells assorted snacks and beverages 24 hours a day.

Third stay here..fabulous

Truly enjoyable. Providing the croissants in the morning and homemade pies at night were truly icing on the cake - and the weather cooperated!

It was reinforcing to visit other areas around Avila Beach (Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo) and listen to others talk positively about the Avila Fonda Hotel.

Extremely high marks to the staff...especially Lauren at check in. even though this wasn't our first time staying at this property, Lauren gave us new insights to this hotel, and other activities in the area. The entire staff was helpful, and informative on many if not all of the hotel offerings.

A lovely place to stay with lots of thoughtful amenities (wine and appetizers in afternoon, for example), but even with those little amenities, it is still overpriced.
