Convenient location -- just off US101's Marsh Street exit, and easy walking distance to shops and restaurants on or near Higuera Street. We were there during the summer on a Friday evening, and there was a free concert at Misson Plaza. We stayed for one night. The Inn is a 'motel' style -- The doors to the room are accessed... More

Convenient location, friendly staff and very clean. We had a very large room (3 double beds) which suited us well for the whole family and so worked out reasonably priced. Room had fridge, microwave, coffee maker and 2 aircon units. Good choice of food at breakfast (self-service), only let down by the use of disposable polystyrene plates and cups which... More

It was really nice having three beds and two air conditioners in the room. Location was wonderful. The staff were very helpful as well. The only thing I can recommend is having a variety of fruit for your continental breakfast or even some hard boiled eggs . I saw two couples come in and leave the breakfast room and their... More

This motel is very cute. The room is cozy. The colors are good. The bed is good. Small room but very nice. You have the breakfast. Good reception when you arrive. Close to the center of the city. The city that I loved with her farmer market on Thursday's night.

Clean, comfortable, very convenient - easy to find, near the freeway, and walking distance to downtown. The staff was helpful, the beds were comfortable. Nice breakfast. Parking. We were on the second floor, at the end of the building, and it was very quiet and peaceful. Wifi, cable TV.

We stayed at this Marriott on the way from San Francisco to San Diego. It was a good half way stop between the two. We were tired from driving all day and it was nice to walk into a clean hotel room with comfortable beds. The best part was stepping into a nice hot shower that had great water pressure!... More

Great stay at the Avenue Inn. Perfect location near the centre and the excellent Farmers Market (Thursday nights). Great travel advice from friendly Sol in the hotel reception. Good sized rooms but some noise from neigbouring rooms.

The best part of staying at Avenue Inn was that it's within a few minutes' walking distance to shops & restaurants in downtown San Luis Obispo. Check-in was smooth. The hair-dryer, iron & ironing board I requested when making the room reservation were in the room. The Queen room we stayed in had a comfortable bed. The sink was outside... More
