Stayed here for one night on a road trip from San Francisco to San Diego. Hotel was fantastic value for money. Great location for restaurants (just one block up.) clean and spacious rooms. Continental breakfast served the next morning. Couldn't fault this for the money paid at all! Would happily stay here again and would recommend to anyone.

We had a one-bed room with one queen bed, and the bed barely fit in the room. Tiny and cramped, with thick rock-hard pillows that made it difficult to sleep. Very expensive on the weekend we were there for the accommodations provided (I think this was a weekend something was going on at the University, although we weren't there for... More

Last hotel available on dorm move-in weekend, and they were price gauging. Pros: walking distance to downtown, comfortable beds Cons: noisy, over priced, cramped room with no drapes (only sheers). Tv was at a right angle to bed so uncomfortable to watch. Maids yelling outside our room early on a Sunday morning was not appreciated.

As middle of the road as can be. It is just outside of the nice SLO downtown area by 2 blocks. Old motel buildings that have been maintained well. Interiors are nothing special but maintained well too. Nothing to wow you, won't be disappointed if you go in expecting average motel room.

We checked in to a 2nd floor room which was away from the main street. The room was completely refurbished and met our needs. Downtown is blocks away - Thursday farmers market is spectacular and this hotel was nearby. We didn't check out the breakfast as others had reviewed it wasn't that good. Plenty of good cafes and breakfast/brunch places... More

While driving from Los Angeles to San Francisco, late evening we decided spend the night in San Luis Obispo. Based on fellow travelers comments, we chose Avenue Inn. Very easy access from highway 101, and proximity to downtown SLO makes it a great location. We walked to the restaurant strip, and had a nice Italian dinner. In the morning, there... More

Nice, clean, comfortable room and close to downtown SLO so only a short walk to a range of restaurants. Desk was welcoming and very helpful and friendly. Surprisingly good value. Easy to find. Large, powerful shower.

Ten minute walk to the mission, restaurants, shops and cafes downtown. Small room, but very clean and recently remodeled. Bed was comfortable with fluffy comforter. Breakfast (included) with cereals, muffins, pastries, scones, coffee, tea and juice. I checked-in at 7pm and it was nice to walk to dinner, have a meal & a glass of wine, then afterwards walk back...

We came here for my husband's race in the Wild Cherry Canyon, and to enjoy what SLO has to offer in terms of food, since it's right in the Downtown area. The room was clean and comfortable. It's set up like a Best Western Inn which was fine. The breakfast was very minimal with cereal, milk, juice, coffee, waffles, bread,... More
