Thank you, Karen.

We love the location and the friendliness. It would be lovely to have in house or more convenient laundry facilities. The grills really a long walk from the rooms. Everything else is great.

The facility is very dated and not up to the star rating as presented. Our experience was compounded by the fact that the power went out about 45 mins after our arrival and was restored about 4am. Other than showing us what door to use or not, there was virtually no accomodation made due to the circumstances. As I mentioned to my wife "it sort of felt like the Motel 6 of timeshares." It wasn't horrible, but we in no way felt they were prepared for the unexpected and left us to sit in a dark room.

Will be back w/o a doughty!

Pros: everything
Cons: on property bar/lounge with food!
It's a wonderful spot, only one minor thing is restaurant options are slim in the off season, but lots of good eats in Slo town and Pismo. but the full kitchen is very nice if you feel like cooking on vacation, very convenient for morning coffee and a lite basic breakfast!

San Luis Bay Inn Avila Beach (5 Cities area)

The Resort is undergoing renovations (you wouldn't know it; no mess no noise) and it is GRAND! It translates as a small fishing Village and yet, Pismo & Shell Beach, Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach and Oceano are within miles (so is San Luis Obispo). I am from San Diego (Southern California is WAY different, above Los Angeles is much more kick-back, less traffic and yet offers plenty of recreation, entertainment and dining---oh yeah, WINE COUNTRY). Enjoyed bike riding (can find relatively flat riding), hiking, skating, Melodrama (in Oceano), taking the Light House hike tour tomorrow and Kayaking the Bay Thursday (plenty of birds, sea lions, hope to see dolphins and whales on the Kayaka trip). Been in the 60's & 70's seems plenty warm once you get going, the pool is heated, nice work out room and Rec rooms. Farmer's Market nearby and plenty of "city" shopping (including an Outlet).LOVE IT and will be back! STAYED A WEEK not 4 days....rated mid-week
