“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I had a great stay in SLO and I believe it was partly due to my stay here.

The location is excellent as it is a short walk to the main strip. The rooms were clean, nicely decorated and the shower was quite powerful. The breakfast was plentiful and there was variety compared to other places I have stayed. Also, Sol Taylor was very welcoming explaining what there was to do and recommending restaurants and bars.

I felt very welcome here and would definitely come again.

Stayed November 2014, traveled as a couple

This place is a great find. Location is absolutely ideal for easy access to all the shops and restaurants on the main streets - 2 blocks and you are there! Rooms are great - clean and current, breakfast had everything you need including waffles. No reason to look further.

Had a great time in San Luis Obispo and Sol Taylor at Avenue Inn was a part of that. The customer service was great and all staff was super welcoming and friendly. They helped my friend and I find some great places to eat in Downtown SLO and gave great ideas for activities like horseback riding, a day at the spa, hiking, and of course the great shopping downtown! Thank you guys again!

This is a motel so if you go in with that mindset, you should be fine. That being said, it's a nice motel - great service, clean renovated rooms, comfortable beds, yummy breakfast - so for the price, you really can't go wrong. It's within easy walking distance to all the downtown shops and restaurants - a big plus in a town with semi-limited paid parking. Check them out!

Room Tip: Choose a room on the second floor for a quiet early morning experience; rooms on the first floor are...

My wife and I traveled to San Luis Obispo, CA for Cal Poly's homecoming event in 2014. We extended our stay past the weekend to see the sights and relax after all of the events. I had judged the place when I first drove up to the lodging because it looks fairly compact and outdated. We were surprised at how well the interior was kept after checking into our rooms.

Pros: Location- walk to downtown and accessible to both halves of the city.
Cleanliness- current management keeps this place immaculate.
Renovations- bathrooms feature showers fixtures in the ceiling.
Value- good service and accommodations for the price and time.
Service- management provided excellent suggestions and gave us towels for the beach.

Cons: Room Size- the desk and chairs don't really fit in the room with a king size bed.

The rooms also featured a fridge, HBO, and a microwave. Having a microwave was great especially after having leftover pizza. The breakfast is great for a snack on the go, but I would hit the town if you are looking for something more filling. This place is great for quick trips and provides excellent lodgings for the price (without a lot of bells and whistles).

Room Tip: No elevators to the second floor.

The newly redone rooms are large, comfortable & clean. A bargain price for the city. Breakfast was OK. Staff was less than knowledgeable, forgetting to mention 2 closeby highly rated restaurants & the proffered street map was abbreviated, giving the impression that the central core & Mission area were only a few minutes walk: closer to 20 to 30 minutes in truth. We were satisfied with our stay, but would check around another time before booking again.

The room was clean, and clearly newly renovated. The location was great, we were able to walk downtown and take advantage of the restaurants and bars. Would go back because it seems like good value for the money we paid.
