The Avenue Inn was the perfect location for my needs. We stayed over night for a girls trip of shopping and sightseeing. The location is great...close enough to the highway and a very short walk to Higuera where all the boutiques, restaurants and mission are located. The room was spotless. The bathroom looked brand new. Loved the rainfall shower. The... More

Got a three bed room and for over $350 a night, I expected a clean room. Instead, our room smelled like vomit and strong carpet powder trying to disguise the smell. Additionally, the carpet was literally sticky and my daughters feet turned brown on the bottom from walking around the room for a few minutes barefooted. Gross.

When we got there the check in was fast and they gave us the closest room to the office. That was really nice! The room was spacious, cable and... More

This place is well maintained. The bed was extremely comfortable. Overall very nice, except did not care for the rain type shower head directly above. Water pressure lacking. Rooms a bit on small side but everything necessary was available.

The inn was only a few blocks (about a 5 minute walk) to the downtown SLO area. The area surrounding the motel was pretty quiet. The room was clean and it appeared the bathroom had been recently modernized. Really liked the spaciousness of the rooms.

Easy find right off the freeway (but quiet, safe location). Very friendly and personable attendants at check-in, and a clean room with comfy bed and all the basics. Nice location, though not as walkable to main, busy part of downtown as we'd hoped (but quick, simple drive!). Breakfast is quite simple (could use some eggs/protein!), but there are so many...

Four of us were travelling to a meeting and stopped in San Luis Obispo for the night. The rooms were clean and welcoming. We liked the shower! The paper cups were unique--with corrugated outside that made it easy to hold them. The breakfast room was spacious and the food was good. We especially liked the make-your-own waffles and the coffee.... More

This is the most reasonably priced hotel/motel in San Luis Obispo for what you get. All the rooms have been remodeled and are beautiful and clean. Staff is great! I totally recommend this hotel. I have always had a great stay here.

Older style motel where all rooms open to the outside. The room and bathroom looked like it had recently been updated. Was very clean. Staff was friendly and courteous. Great location, walkable to Higuera st with lots of shops and restaurants. Continental breakfast was above average for this type of place.

Very nice and quiet are located close to the centre of town. We arrived quite late and there was no problem checking in. Clean room, comfortable bed and nice employers. Perfect place to stay at if your passing through San Luis Obispo (which is a very nice and quiet town).
