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!

This is a great place to stay in SLO, very close to both the Freeway and all the local amenities. SLO is a very walkable place and this hotel is ideal. Quiet and very comfortable and with very friendly staff and a great breakfast set up - waffled, cereal, toast and good coffee. Make sure you stay on a Thursday...

This is really a motel, located close to downtown area. Decent restaurants are a couple of blocks away. We recommend McClintock's for a decent burger and beer. Continental breakfast is inclusive and consists of cereals, muffins and danish pastries with coffee and tea.

Great location! Nice decor - clean and comfortable. It's a little noisy with it having exterior doors, but not beyond reason. The staff is super nice and accommodating. It's very safe and again - an overall great value. Breakfast is included, but with so many great places to eat in SLO it should be treated as a morning snack. :)

Friendly management. It was nice to have a chat with owner who was happy to assist with my many questions. The rooms are big and comfortable and have everything you need for a short stay. The bed was so comfortable and the location is great as it is only a short walk to cafe's and restaurants. I'd come back 😊

Stayed for 1 night. Clean & comfortable - no complaints. I liked being able to walk to restaraunts & shops in downtown SLO. The best part for me was being able to go out the door in the mornng, walk across the street and under the 101 freeway and instantly be on the hiking trails!
