This hotel ticked the most important boxes you look for when trying to find accommodation. The room was a generous size. It was comfortable furnishings and clean! Location was great, so close to walk in to town and felt safe. The continental breakfast was fine and there was laundry facilities available also. The manager was friendly and pleasant. WIFI was...

A great spot for a great price! The hotel is located in a great spot, only half a mile from the Mission and other great downtown hot-spots. Checking in and out of the hotel was an easy process, as was finding out room. The rooms impressed me the most, as they look to have been recently renovated! The bed was... More

Sol, The proprietor, was most accommodating. The place was clean, quiet and conveniently located near the downtown. Would recommend this to anyone. Sol let us check in early The days we stayed there and didn't seem to be put out by it whatsoever. There were no bedbugs to worry about either! Just a great stay with no worries.

Close to the freeway exit and within walking distance of the attractive town of San Luis Obispo, this motel is a good option for a comfortable short stay. The rooms and beds are comfortable and the self-service breakfast is quite adequate.

I recently stayed at the Ave Inn and was pleasantly surprised. The room was recently renovated and extremely clean. I was in town for a concert at the SLO Brew Co., which is a short half mile walk from the Inn. The inn was centrally located and customer service by front desk staff was excellent. I will definitely stay here... More

We had a fantastic overnight stay at the Avenue Inn. They had one room left which we happily snatched up and the room was clean with a very comfortable bed. Staff were friendly and helpful - when we turned on the TV we discovered it had been damaged; I told them about it and we had a replacement TV within... More

Have stayed here several times in the last 6 months. Location is great as you get to walk easily to downtown SLO. Hotel seems recently renovated and beddings appear new. However my latest stay was not as pleasant. The check in was rather unfriendly and unwelcoming. Worst of all was finding a large open packet of half eaten snacks in... More

I stayed at the Avenue Inn on 2 separate occasions last Fall when I was in town for business. It's right off of the 101 and easy to find. The location is great as it's super close to downtown (you can easily walk there). I am usually hesitant to stay at a motel type lodging, but decided to give them... More

Very clean room, friendly staff, and an excellent location. There's a great mountain trail literally across the street, and the heart of downtown is three blocks away. Couldn't imagine a better place to stay in San Luis Obispo!

Avenue Inn is located in a very good spot. It's easy to find, right off Hwy. 101, and its walking distance to downtown! Downtown is full of restaurants, bars, shops, and breweries. The room is newly redone with quality beds and bedding. The room is very standard, but very clean and modern with a fridge and microwave. Perfect for one... More
