Cabin Reviews

Apr 20, 2015
We enjoyed visiting Avila/Pismo Beaches/SLO for the weekend. Stayed at A KOA Kabin (S-3) for two nights. All went very well until dark. A streetlight near our Kabin at KOA beams bright light thru our Kabin windows/curtains (no blinds). The manager said there's nothing they can do about it. We didn't get a single good night's sleep. (We finally got our good night's sleep - back at our home).

Loved the cabin and peaceful setting of the site-nice and quiet and close to the beach via the Bob Jones trail. Easy check-in and check-out!!

Great location, nice office & bathroom. cons: strong smell of sewage, wastewater all over the asphalt upon departure, terrible night sleep on poor quality mattress. No directions for chair sleeper set up (had to figure out in middle of night, mattress better than bed's). Old food residue along counter edges. Strong odor in room. Fridge motor is loud at night.

Fantastic location, 3 miles from Avila beach. Managers Dave & Lisa do a awesome breakfast on weekends. Just a fun place to be with great host.

Good location and walking path to Bob Jones beach. Overall comfortable accommodations. What could be improved: Bed was a bit too soft, the heater was noisy, a sink in the bathroom would've been nice.

Way over priced. If you can't provide hot water or sometimes no water at all. No towels, no maid service, nothing available to clean your self, no trash bags you shouldn't have the right to charge your guest 250.00 per night !! Dirty facility out dated. Pool heater broken. No bathrooms at pool area. Owners very rude. Location is on the corner of a busy street. Would never go back.

We stayed in a single cabin and had a great time. It was small, but it had everything we needed. The room was clean and the shower was hot. The couple that managed the camp were friendly, helpful and made great pancakes! It's close to the beaches of Pismo. The only drawback was how close it is to the freeway, but we were too busy having a good time to care. We will be back..and bring friend

We had a Yoga Retreat at the camp and the staff was very helpful. They went the extra mile by opening up the community room early and insuring that every thing was nice. The cabins were in excellent shape and very clean. We will be back!

Good location for going to Avala & Pismo area. There is a nice bike path to the beach near by. RV spaces are small and the KOA is next to Highway 101. There are lots of modular home that make it feel like a trailer park.

Description of the cabin did not meet reality. There was a bathroom yet no sink so we used kitchen sink for bathroom needs. An important detail for some to make informed decision. Though we had just made reservations the night before I think they could have e-mailed us that there would be road construction outside KOA. It would have been nice to have blinds in unit to decrease light at night!

The Studio Deluxe is great for 2 people not 3- 4 . The mattress was stained ? otherwise an OK place .

Breakfast on Saturday & Sunday was a nice touch

Overall I found KOA at Avila/Pismo very disappointing. We purchased the largest cabin available with a kitchen and it didn't even come with a cutting board. I asked the Office if they had a cutting board I could use and they looked at me like I had three heads! In addition, the playground was horrible for my child and the pool was not heated so we couldn't swim. I would never stay there again.

Very friendly and helpful staff. The location is great, but a little attention on the cabin furnishings would be great such as the kitchen rugs which needed washing and slightly stained throw pillows. Missed not having an outdoor table, chairs and BQ.Overall we had a great time. Thank you.

Enjoyed all the surrounding activities and especially the convenient KOA location!
Aug 04, 2014
The site was too small and too close each other. The cabin was not maintained. I had to stay with spiders. And whoever does housekeeping, don'ttip at all. Bad job.

I booked a studio cabin for me and two of my friends to attend an event in Arroyo Grande. We were worried that the chair cots might be too small but they were not too small at all. The little cabin was clean and very comfortable for the three of us, the staff was friendly and I would stay here again. I have already recommended the cabins to other friends.

It was nice and kids loved the cabin with loft. Drain in bathtub needed to be unclogged and game room needs major updating.
Jul 25, 2014
The campground was crowded. Trash was overflowing. Pool was very cold but they said it was heated. Office closed before their promised hours.
Jul 15, 2014
We rented a small cabin. The campground and staff were great!

It was a wonderful stay, to say the least. The deluxe cabin was clean and cozy and it would be a pleasure to return. Thank you Avila/Pismo Beach KOA!

Our family had one of the best times ever. We enjoyed the great staff, friendly campers, pool, weekend breakfast, game room and cabin.

This was my first time staying at this site. All the staff that I interacted with was very friendly and informative. I stayed in one of the small cabins and it was the perfect size for myself and by sons (9 & 10). My boys had a blast in the game room and the pool. Loved that there is a free trolley that took us to Pismo Beach. Great stay!!
May 27, 2014
We had soooooooo much fun. Looking forward to our trip back in July.
