      I liked that the staff was very friendly and the refridgerator in the room was very usefull.

      The design of the room was a little weird looking. It is also pretty far from the mainstreet so that was disappointing. The breakfast they provided was not exciting at all. There was no view from our room and the ice machine couldn't have been farther away.

    • Couple

      The rooms look great! Ok breakfast, nothing fancy. Close to everything.

      Kinda annoying when the receptionist kinda sounds like a broken record "200 dollars fine if smoking in the rooms, 200 dollars fine...., 200 dollars fine..." - besides from that, all good!

      Comfortable beds

      Tile in floor of bathroom not grouted. Turquoise chairs had broken springs. Very worn linen. Not a three diamond standard

      The location was good. Desk staff member/manager was somewhat lacking in customer service skills and was extermly rude and told me to find another hotel if I didn't like the fact that I could check in an hour prior to check in time. From there I made sure to be nice to her since she was running the hotel. Stay turned out good as well as my interactions with the manager.

      Facillites were clean and recently updated. Beds were good. Breakfast a plus. Short walk to beach. Safe place to walk. pool and hot tub. Quiet- no noise from other guests.

      The staff was outstanding -- friendly, helpful, gave us great suggestions on things to do and see on our 24 hours in sb and even let us leave our car in their lot after check-out so we could do a last minute whale-watching tour and not hassle with pier parking. Location was just several blocks from the beach and pier. Though the room was small, it was spotless and very functional (though the a/c unit was very noisy as were our upstairs neighbors who stomped around all night and very early in the morning). Complimentary breakfast was tasty with good selection of items. Great value for the money and we'll definitely stay at Avania again should we return to sb. Thanks everyone!

      Not great a/c -- noisy and a bit anemic but glad it was there since sb was in the middle of a July heat wave. Upstairs guests must have practiced marching in combat boots and suffered from insomnia because we heard them stomping around until well after midnight and up again around 6:30 am.

      Great motel, huge rooms and welcome pool after a day in the sun.

    • Couple
      7.4

      Location was good - just a short walk from the beach (but not beach front if you're looking for a view of the ocean). Rooms were funky, beds were comfortable, rooms were clean and shower was decent.

      The hotel is a bit older, so it's not for you if you want something modern. Breakfast wasn't great - eggs were cold and rubbery.

    • Group of friends

      Parking next to Hotel, free Wifi, Spacious rooms, nice location.

      When arriving late in evening, first impression is a 2 star motel - a bit dissapointing. However stay made up for it. We liked it.

      Just returned from a three week US and Canada driving holiday. The Avana Hotel,was the best of its kind during the whole trip. Clean,quiet and great staff. Use of computer and printer to confirm retirn flight and print boarding passes,no problem and no charge, Snack breakfast was good, A very good hotel

      Location. Very close to beach and 15 mIn walk away from Downtown.

      Breakfast was very basic. For rice we were expecting better offer as similar hotels we had stayed that were even cheaper.

    • Single

      Rooms were recently renewed, and were very modern and clean, with all comfort. Breakfast was okay as well. Good location close to the city center and the beach.

      Location and value for money

    • Single
      7.8

      Comfortable, clean, stylish decor - not your usual beige, free wi-fi in room, relatively quiet, exceptional location, in-room microwave and refrigerator, very nice free breakfast buffet, nice people, moderate affordability.

      Glass sliding door to balcony did not provide great sound barrier to parking lot noise.

    • Couple
      5.0

      The pool was ok although the gate was never locked during the day which could be dangerous if you have children.

      The hallways were dimly lit and the room had a musty smell. The walls were paper thin and we could hear the neighbors next door, (until I "requested" them to quiet down).
