Other reviewers have said it before me - a great little motel for the price! The location near the main street opens up great dining options in easy walking distance. Ease of access from the main road is a plus. The staff were friendly and the rooms were large, clean and well-equipped. Orignally concerend that the room would suffer from...

Super property. So affordable for anywhere but a bargain in SLO. I don't know if all the buildings and rooms are upgraded to the same level, but my room had a very comfortable bed and pillows, soft towels, refrigerator/microwave, flat screen TV and fresh, clean contemporary paint/carpet/décor. Walkable to all of downtown. Friendly and accommodating desk staff. City traffic was...

This was just as advertised with TripAdvisor. It's a great little travel Motel for the price. Everything was clean and newly renovated with a great breakfast, close to downtown. It was walking distance from everything we needed.

Even if you have a reservation, you can't count on a room. We arrived late, after 11 pm, to find they gave away our room. They claimed to have called to verify late arrival. But I had my phone on me at all times and they made no such attempt.

Clean room and great service. I left my new work iPhone behind. I called a day or so later and they were holding...

Stayed here for one night. Not a lot of parking available. Walking distance to a chevron and house of bread. At edge of downtown SLO. Decent price, not quite what I expected, but comfortable room. Do hear traffic from road and fwy at night.

We stayed here for three nights. The room was small for 4 people and relatively basic, but it was clean, comfortable and easily accessible -- we were on the ground floor and could park within a few feet of the door. The room was quite quiet except that because there is a second floor, there was a clear "creaking" noise...

Avenue Inn was such a great stay! It was a low price and I was able to stay for 4 nights enjoying SLO. The location is walkable to the fun strip on Higurea. The staff is outstanding and really kind. They take a lot of pride in their hotel. It is very evident. The interiors were modern and updated and...
