“Amazing Stay at Avenue Inn Downtown SLO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Had a wonderful trip with my friends for the weekend. Sol, the manager and his staff took very good care of us, and made sure we knew exactly where to go and what to see. He was very accomodating and an excellent host! Rooms were very nice and clean. I highly recommend staying there!

We were lucky enough to find the Avenue Inn on open house weekend at nearby Cal Poly. Their front desk staff was so friendly and helpful, giving us lots of ideas of where to eat and things to do nearby. The room was spotless, the bed very comfortable, and there was hardly any sound from outside, with the exception of hearing some water pipe noise from the room above us. Definitely a step up from the chain hotels along the main highway.

The room was lovely, newly remodeled with all new furniture and amenities throughout. The continental breakfast was perfect and Sol, the manager, was very welcoming and hospitable. The price was very reasonable, too!

Room Tip: Choose the larger bed if you have a choice.

Close to the 101 and to the quaint shops and restaurants of downtown San Luis Obispo. Clean, comfortable accommodations, an excellent value. We were surprised that the free continental breakfast was not available until 7:30 AM the morning we were there. At least coffee should be ready much sooner.

Room Tip: Our upstairs room was very quiet.

Great location a 10 minute walk from downtown. Room was clean and comfortable. The first night a couple checked into the room above me later in the evening and ended up being very noisy - not as in party but as in TV and crazy loud snoring. By 1:00am realized I had no chance at getting any sleep so called the office and Sol came down and promptly switched me to another room - he was very nice and gracious about it which I really appreciated. The rest of my stay went smoothly.

Room Tip: Ask for an upstairs room

Good location, right off highway and a few blocks from stores and restaurants. Clean and comfortable room, with nice beds, fridge and microwave, decent bathroom. Have to say I was put off though by the desk staff's comments that it is a "party hotel" that locals come to on weekends to party in SLO. We were there on St. Patrick's Day and were assured several times that our room was far from the partiers. As it turned out everything was fine - all was quiet and we had no problems. Just make sure you ask for a quiet room if that's what you're looking for.

We were visiting family in San Luis Obispo and needed a place to rest our heads. We have tried several hotels nearby and have not found the cleanliness and comfort and ease on and off the freeway as this hotel. A minimal breakfast is provided. We will use this hotel the next time we are visiting our family.
