This place was great! Room was clean and modern and had everything we needed. Staff were really friendly and helpful, location was perfect for it's short distance from the freeway and a short stroll in to town. We were lucky enough to be in San Luis for the farmers market on a Thursday evening which was a highlight! Breakfast was... More

I have stayed in almost every SLO hotel and can say that the Avenue Inn was a great spot for 2 nights. The rooms were updated and clean with modern decor. The location is prime --- right near down town. Parking is free and the place has free breakfast (although I didn't have any). This is a great bargain for... More

This hotel has all of the basic necessities. It doesn't have a pool, spa, or resort amenities, but the location is perfect if you want to park your car and walk downtown. The staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. The rooms are newly renovated and the decor is nice. Highly recommended based on value and location.

Stayed for one night as a very convenient and timely stop off between Monterey and LA. Excellent location just off the freeway, and on the doorstep of what appears to be a friendly and lively community in SLO. Hotel manager was an accommodating and friendly host, with good local knowledge for a couple of recommendations. The room was excellent. Freshly... More

The manager, Sol Taylor was extremely friendly. We needed a wine opener and he gladly offered it to us. He was inviting and answered all the questions we had. The room was clean and the bathroom was very nice and new. We weren't expecting much because it was only a night stay, but we were definitely pleasantly surprised. The only... More

I needed to make a last-minute reservation and was very pleased with what I found! The hotel staff was extremely helpful, courteous, knowledgeable about the area and very accommodating in recommending places/activities. The rooms... Fresh, modern, extra-comfy, nicely furnished and VERY CLEAN. The free breakfast is an excellent perk, as well. The overall property was well kept, safe, in a... More

We stayed here for a short visit to SLO with our son and daughter in law. Both of our rooms were similar to 5 star hotels we've stayed at as far as cleanliness , comfort and style. I the cost was almost half of what other hotels in the area charge. We had a small issue with parking after arriving... More

The rooms were very clean and the bed was super comfortable. We really enjoyed the stay. The manager Sol Taylor was very friendly, helpful and informative. Perfect location. The rooms are actually nicer than the photos.

I'd stayed at this property years ago on business when it was part of a national chain and it was just okay. When I found it online recently, I was skeptical about the name change and loss of affiliation. But I was absolutely pleased with the changes. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The room was very comfortable, clean,... More

Motel was clean, quiet, and the staff was friendly. The location is what sets this motel apart from others. It is an easy walk to downtown SLO. There is a simple breakfast on site that we chose not to use, but if you have kids it would be enough to get their day started.
