The remodel on our room was very nice! The front desk clerk was friendly and helpful. I don't think our front window locked as I kept opening it without having to unlatch it. I wish the breakfast had included hard boiled eggs as an additional protein option, but there was yogurt and milk. Great stay!

I usually stay at chance hotels, but this had a very good review, and I have to agree with all reviews I have seen of this hotel. We would stay there again if we are in the area. The room and bathroom had place of plenty of space, and was nicely arranged.

We stopped at San Louis Obispo to break up the driving as we made our way towards Santa Barbara from the western coast. This motel initially looked a little in the end of nowhere and had a petrol station opposite and a couple of shops nearby. Staff member was very friendly and informative. Our room was on an upper level... More

Avenue Inn Downtown is a great stop if you're traveling through SLO. It is nicely located in SLO with plenty of bars, breweries, coffee shops and restaurants. All of this is in walking distance as well. As for the hotel itself, the best thing about it is its price. My wife and I were going to stay at Madonna Inn... More

The office staff were very friendly and accommodated our late arrival (2:30 AM). The room was clean and the bathroom had been updated. Overall it was a fine stay with no issues at all. We would stay here again for future visits.

This motel is always a pleasure to stay at. The people here are wonderful, the location is great and the rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. House of Bread is next door and provides wonderfully delicious picnic sandwiches for outings to the beach. The hotel is easy to find from the freeway and a nice little walk to all of... More

We stayed at this motel for two nights. The rooms were updated and clean. The only real downside about it was the very small shower cubicle. Parking is outside your room, and the hotel staff were very helpful and professional and friendly. The hotel provides a free breakfast, which we can't vouch for as we didnt have it during our...
