I come to SLO 4-5 times a year on business and ALWAYS stay at the Avenue Inn. Owned by a nice family, it's clean and the beds are very comfortable. Very close to all downtown restaurants, coffee and shopping. I highly recommend staying if you are coming through SLO or staying to enjoy the surroundings.

Very friendly check in. I got the impression he was the owner. Place is obviously a wonderfully remodeled former chain motel. Wonderful modern decor and colors. Nice fresh paint, comfortable bed, and (rarely found ) comfortable pillows that won't leave you with a sore neck. All counter tops are granite. Fantastic granite shower with an overhead sprayhead. Everything was clean....

This place is surprisingly nice. When you arrive it doesn't look like much. Just a standard motel but then you get to your room and are very pleasantly surprised. The bed was huge and really comfortable. The bathroom was very modern and clean with a great shower. Breakfast was nice. Teas, coffees, cereal, pastries and toast. This is in a...

Great location. - very walkable to downtown, and convenient 101 highway access to Cal Poly. Clean room, nicely decorated -- not just plain white walls! Microwave and fridge in room (handy), and comfy bed. Room was on the small side, but I wasn't there to hangout, so fit my need perfectly. Generous breakfast (free) and coffee was dark, hot, and...

Room was clean, bed was comfortable, hotel was surprisingly quiet for being so close to downtown. All the amenities that you would want were available, free wi-fi, blow dryer, ironing board, mini fridge, T.V. The staff was very welcoming and kind. They were helpful with suggestions for where to eat and what to do. Parking was included.

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Avenue Inn Downtown and found it a nice place to stay. First off, the front desk personnel are very friendly and helpful. When we arrived, we asked for nearby places to eat and got several with maps and descriptions. Our room was on the second floor towards the back and was...

We were here two years ago and I reviewed it favorably then. I wondered if it had changed. It is still a good, clean, no-frills motel, for a good price. A short walk to downtown. Decent continental breakfast. The people at the front-desk could probably be a bit friendlier, but this is the Avenue Inn, not the Madonna Inn.

We stayed 2 nights and enjoyed the quiet, small clean room. Good for 2 people due to small bathroom but it was all clean. Breakfast is OK on site. Loved the location and parking situation. Will definitely stay here again and recommend it!
