This was a great place to stay with our 3 children to tour Cal Poly Slo, comfortable beds, clean room, recently redone. We left something in the room and called they went to look for it and they had it shipped back to us. Thank you for a great stay in SLO!

Our son graduated from CalPoly SLO and at each visit, finding a nice place to stay could be problematic. This is a very nice motel. The rooms are modern with quartz counters and shower. The beds are new, firm and comfortable. Showers have an interesting large overhead shower head. A lit makeup counter in the room was convenient for my... More

We stayed 2 nights for a Cal Poly event. The property was easy to find and was very conveniently located near Cal Poly and the downtown area. The room was clean, and smelled fresh and the price was good as we weren't looking for 'resort' facilities and really only needed a place to sleep. The staff was polite and welcoming.

I have no idea how this motel gets it's high rating. The staff were not at all friendly when I checked in or out (these were the only times I saw them). They never once attempted to strike up any kind of friendly interaction. For example, I realized when I checked out that the man sitting next to the lady... More

This is a motel deluxe. Straight off pacific highway 1, this Inn is a perfect one stop place! Clean, comfortable and sweet staff. The girl who checked us in was super friendly and helpful and after a LONG drive she was quick and efficient which was just what we needed. Great little town to stop, who knew this is where... More

We were in town visiting Cal Poly and stayed here one night. The room was very nice and the location was great and close to the nice downtown area with restaurant. The area was not noisy at all but just blocks from some nice local bars and restaurants, which was great for watching the NBA finals Warriors game.

There are cheaper options but this place was quiet, right next to downtown and had beds that rivaled the fluffiness of clouds. The showers were nice as well. Two identical twin brothers run it, so don't be thrown when you see the same guy you checked in with last night sitting behind the front desk bright and early.

I am extremely picky when it comes to motels. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. It was a little pricey for a motel but from what I gathered, everything around there is on the high end. It was obviously recently remodeled and the room was very nice and clean. A little small for more than two people but it... More

We just spent three nights at the Avenue Inn Downtown in SLO and we were very pleased. The moment we walked in and met Sol the manager to check out, it was a very pleasant stay. This is a newly remodeled motel that is the closest to downtown and we walked everywhere from the motel. Parking can be hard to... More

This is a newly remodeled gem of an Inn run by very nice people at a great price in a great location. I generally stay in nice hotels and avoid cheap motels, but this was the closest to my seminar (and the pictures looked nice) so I took a gamble and was pleasantly surprised! I was very pleased with this... More
