Upon rolling into the carpark you coud've been mistaken for thinking that the Avenue Inn was similar to that of Motel 6 or other budget accommodation, but you would be hugely mistaken. From the extremely helpful staff - in particularly the fellow Englishman manager who could not possibly have been more helpful, from recommending places for dinner, to places to... More

Very Clean and spacious bedrooms, including the bathroom. The mattress is comfortable. It is very good located, couple blocks from downtown, easy access from I-101. The staff is friendly and open. I totally choose this place again if I drop by San Luis Obispo, as the city is also very nice

Three of us stayed at the motel (wife and 16 year old son) for two nights. We choose this place based on the high ratings in TripAdvisor, so we were very disappointed. In our opinion, the high ratings are not warranted. This place reminded me of a Motel 6. Two double beds in a tiny room and small bathroom. Poor... More

We really loved this place. The decor was well thought out, the bathroom was perfect and it was so clean, clean, clean. We were pleased with the breakfast that was included. We will certainly return on a future trip.

Parking on site. Room is remodeled and very clean. Walls are thin so hearing your neighbor may interrupt a light sleeper. Location is great for a walk downtown and to local shopping and restaurants. Close to the airport and to access to the freeway towards Pismo Beach.

I stayed for one night. it is a simple Inn, but the room was remodeled, new furniture, paint and bathroom. the shower head was great as it was a large, rain style shower head. Continental breakfast was a good start for the day. Good place for an in and out type of trip.

We were greeted by very friendly staff and given a great room. The rooms were recently renovated and very clean; they even smelled clean. We had one of the best rooms and the guy at the desk told us that he'd put his parents in that room if they were there. If you want a room that's right in the... More

I brought ear plugs because I had read here that this place might be noisy, but even though it was an active Friday night I didn't need them. I couldn't hear any footsteps from above, even though I saw that that room was occupied, nor any noise from the breakfast room which was right next to me, and occasional revelers... More

This motel with recently renovated rooms, including powerful shower in the bathroom, is within a short distance from the freeway and downtown with the farmers' market. But you won't be disturbed of running traffic because the rooms are quiet. The comfort of the rooms was excellent offering all needs. Within a few blocks, you'll reach a lot of shops and... More

Very friendly staff, nice clean room, nice bathroom and shower. Walking distance to historic downtown, easy to find right off the freeway. Great breakfast included. Room was not huge, but adequate, especially for the price. I'll stay again.
