Why We Love This Hotel

  • Filled with character, transporting guests to a 19th-century Mexican village
  • All rooms have a two-person Jacuzzi, free Wi-Fi and fireplace
  • Member-favorite hotel -- more than 95% of visitors say they love it
  • Set a block from the sand


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.

Can’t say enough about the warmth of the Staff.. They did everything to make us feel welcome.

What a great experience from beginning to end! The staff made me feel like a Queen, they were so friendly and responsive! The room was clean and nice, and the different food offerings encouraged guests to gather and share their days...that's how I found out about DiPalo and Sons Italian market in Shell beach...such a wonderful little market! The hotel is a block from the beach, there's wine tasting at about 20 wineries in Edna Valley about 20-25 minutes away, and 2-3 wineries a block or two from the hotel...and there's a Hot Springs right down the road...I had a private clothing-optional mineral hot tub to myself in the woods at Sycamore Mineral Springs for a very reasonable price. I've already made reservations at the hotel for this time next year!

We love this Hotel and are repeat customer's. We especially appreciate the special package you at travelzoo provided. BUT, I have watched as the price point each year has been creeping up!! This year $219.00 + $26.00 tax. Again we love this deal but when we returned home and found on our computer an offer from the Hotel their Winter special for what seems to be the same amenities for $158.00 we started having second thoughts about your Fall "special offer"

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.
