The motel is located within walking distance from the Thursday night Farmer's Market, which I highly recommend! The room was simple, but clean. If you're looking for a no-frills place within walking distance to the downtown area, this is a good place for you. My daughter & I were checking out Cal Poly for her college selection, so we were...

Beautiful, clean, new room. Nice front staff to check in. We advise this hotel to anyone. Walking distance to downtown shopping and restaurants. Not one bad thing to say about this stay. Reasonable rate also.

This hotel was very clean & looks like they recently redid everything. They did a very nice job & it was very pleasant in the room. I just needed a room for a night at a good price for a business trip & it fit the bill perfect. I thought that it was a very good value. The staff was... More

A clean, comfortable hotel room at a reasonable price and good location, with pleasant staff at the front desk. What else could you want? We stayed here for two days with no complaints. The front desk fellows were very friendly and helpful.

Happened to find this place by accident, enroute from San Francisco to LA. Tired from driving we took an exit and literally drove into it. Reasonably late at night the owner/manager? was very accommodating. We needed to 2 rooms and got the last available. Our 2 sons downstairs in a 2 bed, and we were upstairs in quite a spacious,...

When I book a stay at a place in this price range, I have different expectations than I have for boutique hotels, bed-and-breakfasts, ritzy properties, etc. I want a clean room with a bed I can sleep in and hot water in the shower, no weird smells, cable TV, convenient location, free wifi, and easy (preferably free) parking. I understand... More

Last minute trip to San Luis Obispo. Needed a place to stay. Found this hotel online. Booked the room hoping for the best and we got it! Room was super clean and nice. Location was walking distance to downtown SLO. Has a nice free breakfast and free parking too! Would stay here again!

Easy to reach from highway 1, and at walking distance from downtown. Nice, clean and quiet room. Comfortable bed, but pillow way too thick for my tastes. Excellent wifi, parking space sometimes insufficient, mediocre breakfast, horrible coffee. Friendly checkin. Good choice overall.

I agree with all the great reviews of the Avenue Inn. The owner/mgr. was very accommodating from our phone calls to our arrival. The room was clean and quiet, although no one was above us that night. Location and parking are very convenient. This is a two-story motel with doors that open to the outside. For quality, value and service,... More

The rates were reasonable. The room was super clean. There were very nice touches in the rooms. The decor and bed was great. Can't beat it. You can tell the owner pays attention and wants things to be done the right way. We had a great stay.
