Overview

Hotel is a short walk from the beach and offers complimentary treats and drinks
No pool, gym or restaurant on-site
Avila La Fonda Hotel offers high-end accommodations steps away from the Pacific Ocean. Sitting about 185 miles northwest of Los Angeles, Avila La Fonda boasts 28 rooms and suites, each with their own two-person Jacuzzi tub, queen- or king-sized bed (with 500-thread-count sheets) and a flat-screen plasma TV. But for many visitors, it's Avila La Fonda's unique decor that sets this hotel apart from other coastal California digs. With early 19th-century Mexican architecture and stained glass windows, the hotel exudes a historic feel, and an in-house collection of Mexican folk art attracts culture hounds. Recent guests rave about the hotel's personal touches, such as complimentary baked goods and wine tastings, and guests cite the hotel staff's friendly and helpful demeanor as reasons to come back. However, first-time visitors should note that Avila La Fonda doesn't feature some of the more lavish amenities of other luxury properties; the hotel lacks its own restaurant and you won't find a pool here.
