“SLO - Dec 2014”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Great people. Very clean and up to date. We picked this hotel because of location to downtown SLO. Within easy walking distance to Farmers Market, great shops, and wonderful food. Would definitely stay there again.

What a pleasant surprise in downtown SLO - feels like a new hotel. Very nice accommodations and a caring staff dedicated to satisfying its guests. Very comfortable bed and new granite bathroom and shower.

What a great find, very clean, very reasonable. The room better than we had expected . The bath room looked like it was brand new. The room came with a fridge and microwave we were within walking distance to a main street for food and shopping

Chose this motel for our 1 night stopover based on others' reviews and was not disappointed. Yes, it is a motel, but motels can be an excellent choice. The rooms have been nicely renovated from the carpeting, furnishings, bedding and decor to all new bathrooms in a style and quality that one would expect in a more expensive lodging. Bed was extremely comfortable (and I appreciated extra 5th pillow in the closet!) Our $115 room rate also included breakfast. This breakfast room also is newly renovated; although the offerings were a little carb-heavy (no egds or protein), there were make-your-own waffles, fresh pastries & toast, dry cereal, fresh fruit & juices and coffee, etc. which was plenty, and both the buffet and tables were well tended and tidied during our visit. The Inn is convenient just off the fwy but we did not hear traffic noise. Also, it is just one street over from & walking distance to Higuera St--with its many nice restaurants and shops. The proprietor was very friendly and we are very pleased to have stayed here. Would definitely recommend to others.

Room Tip: I would expect the rooms furthest from the fwy are quieter

At first I was a little hesitant to book a motel, but it turned out to be super clean and beautiful. The room smelled great, everything seems pretty new, and the manager/owner (I believe) was very pleasant at check-in. The location is in walking distance to restaurants and bars in the Downtown area. For the price and location, I highly recommend it. If I were passing through SLO again I would book here again!

I wasn't sure what to expect, relying solely on TripAdvisor reviews and the price for room that I desired (inexpensive). I was not disappointed.

The hotel staff was friendly and helpful to each person checking into a room, advising places to dine, etc. Maps are available in the lobby along with helpful free travel guide/advertisements.

The room doors do lead directly to the parking lot, but I felt secure. You can get adjoining rooms if needed. And, I actually like that we could park directly in front of our hotel room door and unload the car. Second floor rooms are available.

The room was very clean and appeared recently updated. The beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was very clean with good towels (not stiff) and stocked with basic amenities. This was a very good value. The shower was modern with a "rain" shower head with plenty of hot water. There was a screened window in the bath. The bedding seemed clean and fresh.

The room had a fridge and microwave, although I did not need those.

The location is close walking distance to all the action without being in the middle of the action (and noise).

I would definitely stay here again.

I traveled with a large group of 15 on my recent visit to San Luis Obispo and could not have been happier with the accommodations! The rooms were newly remodeled, clean, and most importantly, the cloud-like bedding. The management and staff were always pleasant and willing to share helpful tips on the local scene. Everything was within walking distance. Nothing but high marks here! Next time you're planning a trip to SLO I recommend you stay at the Avenue Inn Downtown.
