Location is great, short drive/walk to prime downtown activities. This used to be a Travelodge and in April 2014 was under major renovation. We paid $80/night. For the quality of the room, you would have to pay 2x elsewhere near downtown. It is a motel property, so you do hear a little outside traffic noise. Sal, the manager, was very... More

Perfect place to stay in SLO!! Sol, the manager was wonderful to deal with, from making the reservation over the phone, to welcoming us, to providing me with a hair dryer when asked! The location is great, no parking meters to deal with, a very pleasant walk to downtown and the price was half of what I would have paid... More

Convenient location, close to downtown & mountain biking trail. Sol made us feel at home and was always there to greet us! Housekeeping was great. Couldn't ask for more. Only neg: bit of street noise.

The stay was great! The rooms were newly remodeled and clean. Also, the manager Sol Tailor was very helpful. Everything is in a walking distance and location is very convenient. Definitely would stay here again!

Don't let the plain motel exterior fool you. The newly renovated rooms are top notch with granite and tile flooring in the bathroom and a rain shower head. Sol Taylor was very welcoming and helpful. After a long drive it was great to leave the car in the parking lot and walk downtown. Lots of restaurants, bars and shopping within... More

Loved the new decor, linens, and comfortable bed. Great rain shower head! The manager, Sol Taylor, was a very nice gentleman - helpful and always busy making sure his guests were comfortable.Loved the fact that we could park our car and walk anywhere downtown!

I stayed here last weekend on a spontaneous getaway trip to SLO with my boyfriend. We randomly came across it after first trying the Garden Inn (the only other hotel in downtown SLO) and driving through the downtown. It's in a great location right in the edge of downtown and near the freeway and very near a hiking trail up... More

On the outside it looks like your run-of-the-mill rundown motel leftover from the 70's. But thanks to the recent renovations done the interior of these rooms are extremely nice. I was not expecting the updates that they had in there, including a legitimate RAIN SHOWER!! I was very impressed at the quality and the manager Sol was one of the... More

Like lots of people driving from SF to LA we stopped for a night in San Luis Obispo. The Inn was the first hotel we spotted and I'm glad we did. Sol, the manager and fellow Englishman, was very helpful and the newly renovated rooms were of a really high standard. Compared to some of the basic chain motels we've... More

I drove from Folsom, CA to SLO to visit my son and needed a place to stay. Upon arriving and meeting up with my son, he mentioned the Avenue Inn as a decent place that's not too expensive. I was very happy with the accommodations, especially the fact that the Inn had recently been completely renovated; new TVs, bathroom fixtures,... More
