Booking.com Guest Review GuidelinesTo keep the rating score and review content relevant for your upcoming trip, we archive reviews older than 24 months.
Only a customer who has booked through Booking.com and stayed at the property in question can write a review. This allows us to verify that our reviews come from real guests like you. Who better to tell others about the free breakfast, friendly staff, or their comfortable room than someone who’s stayed at the property?
We want you to share your story, with both the good and the not-so-good. All we ask is that you follow a few simple guidelines.
We believe review contributions and property responses will highlight a wide range of opinions and experiences, which is critical in helping guests make informed decisions about where to stay.
Contributions to Booking.com are a reflection of the dedication of our guests and properties, so we treat them with the utmost respect.
Whether negative or positive, we'll post every comment in full and as quickly as possible, provided the guidelines are met. We'll also provide transparency over the status of submitted content.
We'll use the same guidelines and standards for all user-generated content, and for the property responses to that content.
We'll allow the contributions to speak for themselves, and we won’t be the judge of reality. Booking.com’s role is to be a feedback distributor for both guests and properties.
Guidelines and Standards for Reviews
These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.
Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.
Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.
All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.
Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.
The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

눉I cannot think of anything requiring improvement!
눇Great service, friendly efficient staff, wonderful view, good breakfast, enjoyable fellow guests, important off street parking, well decorated rooms, everything just as advertised.
December 30, 2016
눉Nothing with the motel, a grocery store was not close by and we needed some things we couldn't find in town. Next time I will be a little more prepared for that.
눇I loved the location being right by the beach. Having a sitting room was nicer than just having a bedroom which is what we usually have at other places.
December 22, 2016
눉Heater was sporadic. We ended up being cold. Main complaint was continual squeal coming from water pipes!! Ocean view room promised was on side of complex with a tiny view of ocean. I complained at check-out but no staff offer for partial refund to alleviate disappointment. Never again!
눇Breakfast was fine. Took bagels etc., back to our room .
October 13, 2016
눉I didn't like leaving.
눇This stay was by far the best I've had. I usually miss the mark when planning anniversary trips this one exceeded expectations. The staff were attentive and went out of their way to make sure our weekend went well. I will be making this an annual stay
September 27, 2016
눉The location of our room and the fact that they checked in 3 different couples early and made us wait until 15 minutes before check in.
눇Proximity to the ocean
September 20, 2016
눉The breakfast left something to be desired. For the money spent I would have expected a little more selection on the breakfast and some for of protein IE sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs.
눇The location was great, it was very clean.
July 25, 2016
눉The Gallery for breakfast does get a bit crowed, wish it was roomier.
눇Amazing location right in front of Avila Beach. Beds were comfortable, room was clean, and complimentary wine! Good wifi throughout the hotel and on the beach!!! Great place for family, my kids loved the place. Friendly staff. Will come back again.
July 10, 2016
눉The mattress of sofa was good quality, however the mattress cover was probably made if some sort of plastic which kind of made the sleep less comfortable. But great hotel and comfort overall
눇Quiet, family friendly
April 21, 2016
눉I do like fresh eggs and did not find that as an option. The cost of a couple nights on quiet weekday seems pricy like Carmel, which is half the distance.
눇Great pool and superb buildings. All have that very new feeling. The breakfast was fine.
April 17, 2016
눉A little pricey, which would limit the number of visits to off-season getaways!
눇The location of the hotel is fabulous with great restaurants, shops and beach within walking distance.
March 31, 2016
눇Excellent room, beds,pool,hot tub, breakfast....what's not to like? The staff is always helpful and the cookies to greet us on arrival were most appreciated!
March 27, 2016
눉The parking garage was a long way to our room. Ice machines were few and far between.
눇Great location. The room was really nice and had all the amenities.
March 3, 2016
눉Only one thing, can hear your neighbors to a tee, but nothing that we couldn't handle
눇Everything was fabulous beds comfortable room decor nice loved our patio, pool was great! Hop skip n a jump to everything, we definitely will be back, staff so nice n helpful. People who previously complained about being too pricey, I don't agree it was worth every dollar spent
January 6, 2016
눉The price and the mattress was too firm.
눇We enjoyed the location in the heart of Avila Beach and the view from our room. It felt like a private cozy apartment even though the rooms are close in proximity. They're nicely situated and somewhat affordable.
December 1, 2015
눉The price for one room was a little steep... $385 with view of parking lot and park. One could say the location is worth it, but still seems a little spendy... $400+ at checkout!
눇Location is amazing! Bed was super comfy, room was clean, nice and quiet!
October 31, 2015
눉No INFORMATION! There was no telephone directory in the room. There was no information book about the facility in the room. There was no information book about the area. Asked front desk and they explained Management decided it wasn't necessary. Management is Wrong.
눇Avila Beach is a premier location and facility was excellent
September 23, 2015
눉would like to see some outdoor seating other than the pool. Pretty place, but not many outside places to sit to enjoy the ambiance.
눇beautiful hotel, great location on the beach
August 12, 2015
눉Workout facility is small. The one elliptical trainer was out of order. No movie rentals. No restaurant on site, but nearby restaurants within easy walking distance.
눇Location to the beach was great and size of the room was very nice.
August 2, 2015
눉Could have done with more utensils in the little kitchen but we made do! Breakfast is sugar overload - sugary cereal and yoghurts, waffles, muffins or sugary spreads to put on bread - we ended up supplementing with our own (less sugary) options!
눇Avila beach is a hidden gem with a lovely vibe. Lighthouse was worth every penny - fabulous location, nice staff, free wifi, the pool is great if you can't be bothered walking to the beach, the rooms (well almost apartments) are spacious with fridge and microwave so you can have the odd meal in/prepare picnics etc. Would love to go back.
July 14, 2015
눉We were roomed on the north end of property closest to the public restrooms at beach. We were awoken on a couple occasions by trash trucks and maintenance crews literally dropping and carelessly moving steel cans that were incredibly loud. Also, this is a very kid friendly place. If you are a couple looking for peace and quiet, maybe reconsider.
눇It was well kept. The grounds were nice and the rooms were in good shape.
July 12, 2015
눉The bed was extremely uncomfortable, sheets were scratchy and pillows were terrible. Honestly what drops this down to a 3 star resort instead of a 5 was the bed and linens.
눇We loved the location, staff and heated pool.
June 2, 2015
눉I thought price was way over -we went May 28th for a few days paid over $400 per night with booking 6 months in advance. No restaurant onsite so no room service.
눇Loved the location, on beach with children's playground, life sized checker set, next door and easy access to restaurants. Rooms were so cute beachy theme super cozy! Nice in room amenities. Staff were very helpful. They'd be you cookies at check-in super nice touch.
May 25, 2015
눉Housekeeping showed up at 8AM, then didn't clean room until end of day, after 4:30PM when we got back, despite hanging the 'make up room' sign. Housekeeping seemed intent on cleaning while we were in the room. Kitchenette is a bar sink in a tiny counter with a microwave and mini-fridge. Soundproofing didn't extend to the bathroom - the vent tunnels all of the other rooms sounds and conversations. Car parking must be separately reserved in advance.
눇Across the street from the beach. Faux nautical decor. Garden view room has a partial ocean view. Robes are included for visits to the pool. Good soundproofing, mostly.
April 28, 2015
눇Our room was clean, very well adorned and amenities. Great ocean views. Very quiet even with the midnight exodus from the bar up the street. Would like to see more of an adult breakfast vs kids sugar heavy. We live in the county, in a tourist town, this is where we come to escape
April 22, 2015
눉Need more staff to answer phones and a computer accessing the web in the lobby available to clients. They could be referred to a ready web page to research the room prices and amenities. The staff was bogged-down answering questions with non registered guests shopping for a room. Thus, registered guests waiting on phones and in the lobby were delayed or had to be called back.
눇No charge for parking and the room I got was exactly what I wanted.
April 5, 2015
눉Walls are thin. Hear baby crying and people talking. Doesn't lend to a good night sleep. Breakfast almost ALL CARBS Hard boiled egg only other choose. More protein please
눇Location, parking friendly staff
March 14, 2015
눉Someone decided to stand at exit to property to smoke, didn't notice since it was dark, then my hair was smelly all night, otherwise, ALL great!
눇Quaint town, beautiful places to eat and shop.
March 1, 2015
눉The ocean view comes with a price. It gets very noisy late at night with people on the street. Especially on weekends.
눇View of ocean. Free breakfast. Spacious room. Balcony. Nice staff.
February 11, 2015
눉Horrible Sunday breakfast. Noisy room, baked goods were awful, layout of room was bad, juice was really watery. Horrible experience.
눇Loved the room and pool
January 30, 2015
눉Waited about 20 minutes just to check out at the desk (and there was only one person ahead of me checking in). I realized it was a difficult customer in front of me, but the clerk didn't acknowledge my waiting or the people behind me.
눇Location was awesome, and convenient to restaurants and other activities. The next morning, I walked to the beach across the street to stand up paddleboard. Cool and spacious rooms.
January 21, 2015
눉The jacuzzi wasn't open late. We got back to room after dinner and drinks ready for the hot tub and it was closed by 10 pm.
눇Everything close by within walking distance. Great courtyard with games, pool, jacuzzi. Restaurant and bar only one block away!!
January 17, 2017

October 10, 2016
눇Staff was unbelievable. Over the top nice and respectful...they helped make our trip.
October 8, 2016
눇The scenery was the bonus for us! Every morning we woke up to the ocean shores, looking at us, meeting and greeting us, with every step we took!
September 6, 2016
눉Only negative thing is we could hear the footsteps of the people above us. Next time we will request second floor.
눇Loved the location on the beach.
August 17, 2016

March 30, 2016
March 22, 2016
눇The room the great. Plenty of space and the location and staff were all very understanding and helpful.
March 6, 2016
눉There should be a small stove or cooking plate in the room. We like hot breakfast, the hotel did not provide that.
눇Altogether a good set-up!
March 6, 2016
January 29, 2016
눉Noise from room above - music and footsteps
