Dear MooshiPalmdale, Wow! Your review has made my day! Thank you so much for these nice comments. We pride ourselves on providing all the little extras to ensure guests have a perfect stay, and I am glad to hear you enjoyed everything the hotel has to offer. As you can tell, we take food quite seriously around here! I agree that the treats and drinks throughout the day are a wonderful way too bring the hotel together and get to know the guests over some good food. Avila Beach is a great place to get away for a bit and have a romantic, relaxing few days while exploring the area. We look forward to your next visit. Best, Angela Moles General Manager

We had such a wonderful time. The hotel is relaxing, quiet, and does such a wonderful job of pampering their guests. The food, gift basket, and parting gift were all such kind gestures. Really enjoyed our stay.
