This is our third vacation in SLO. We stayed at the wonderful San Luis Creek Lodge the last two times but this time we wanted to stay closer to downtown. Avenue Inn was indeed our best choice for this trip. The motel (that's really what this property is) appears to have been completely renovated within the last year or two... More

We stayed for two nights while touring the local wineries and countryside; the room was recently remodeled and in very good condition. Rooms are medium sized, but not spacious; the two queens barely fit and only left a narrow walking channel to access the large closet. The location is good - about a 3 block walk to downtown San Luis... More

I stayed one night on way to meet a friend. The hotel is in a very good spot for walking to shops, eateries and bars. It is very close to the SLO Mission. The staff at desk were very friendly and willing to help with suggestions for places to eat. The room was extremely clean and comfortable. A very good... More

I stay in properties that range from two star to five star, depending on whether I'm travelling alone or with my wife. If I'm travelling alone, I'm fine with a modest, clean room, and if I'm travelling with my wife, we (read that she) want(s) all the bells and whistles. This hotel in San Luis Obispo was great and certainly... More

The owner and manager were very kind, helpful people to make your stay very comfortable. The location was great, the room on the second floor was clean, neat with everything you needed it. Nice windows on the bathroom and the room. Good value for your money!

Had a lovely time, for a couple of days while stranded in San Luis Obispo! I recommend it to anyone.The staff is very friendly and will try to accommodate your needs. No matter what they may be. I just absolutely loved it... If I ever go back to SLO I will most certainly visit there again

My gf and I stayed here one night on our trip through coastal Calif. Convenient to downtown (walking distance to most everything) and very safe. Nice staff. Breakfast area was well kept and spacious. Great value for those looking to stay near downtown, avoid parking issues, and want a cup of coffee before venturing out in the AM.

The place was clean, quiet and newly remodel. It was a pleasant stay. We will go back. The wifi was great. It is centrally located in downtown San Luis Obispo. We walked to the Farmer's Market. The front desk is very helpful. Overall was a great experience.

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
