"Nice remodeled Inn"
Nice remodeling in progress. Rooms finished & outside work in progress. We chose to stay here because it was walking distance to the train station and close to the farmer's market. Very friendly staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Just as advertised..."
Just like everyone has already stated, the very charming manager was polite and helpful. Loved being downtown to be able to walk everywhere. There is still some construction, but our room was new and clean. Location, location, location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Avenue Inn sprucing up"
I never stayed at Avenue Inn in its previous incarnation. But it's in the middle of a major re-do, and you can tell they are definitely taking this place up a notch. There was lots of construction going on around us, but our room must have been one of the first re-do's: Very modern and new inside, groovy grey/urban colors, great TV and new fancy shower, […] nice fridge and mwave. Felt very small groovy S.F. kind of hotel even though the outside looks like 50s 2-story motor inn. Fine location, walkable to dt slo though at the bottom of Figueroa. We paid 79 bucks/night ona hotels.com deal, tremendous bargain. Would've been worth twice that on a weekend, easy. Great deal, surprisingly nice, fine location.

"Centralt, rent og ligetil"
Fint standard hotel med god beliggenhed i gå afstand til downtown, restauranter og butikker. Rent, men småt værelse. Morgenmad ja, men meget basic. Fint hotel til et par overnatninger, hvor man ikke skal bruge alt for meget tid på værelset.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Rien à reprocher."
L'accueil était agréable, la chambre était conforme à la photo du site c'est à dire spacieuse, propre et équipée de tout le confort avec une décoration moderne. L'hôtel est situé non loin du Farmer's market qui a lieu le jeudi, et de Tolosa. Bon rapport qualité/prix.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great place for a visit to SLO"
07/24/14 DaveBCSweden Sweden
Great place right at the city entrance. Everything is in walking distance. Try the sandwich place on high street and Wally's bike rental (also on High street) - both also in walking distance. Rooms very sufficiently large, just recently modernized, great bathrooms, very comfortable king size beds with nice linen. Staff was nice and helpful. Free parking right in front. Breakfast included was rather simple but perfectly sufficient (incl. fresh pancakes). Overall, just a very easy and hassle-free place to stay.

Went up for a little one night getaway with my husband. It is a newly remodeled hotel with the Motel 6 feel to it. It was clean and quiet. However, the cleaner or deodorizer they used in the room was so strong I could taste it. If you are really sensitive to perfume, you will be sorry you chose this hotel. I opened the bathroom window while we were out to dinner, but it still smelled strongly in the room for the whole stay. The bed was comfortable and the motel is in walking distance to downtown SLO. However, if you are looking for a romantic getaway, spend some more money and get a nicer hotel. I was glad we were not paying weekend rates as it wouldn't have been worth the money.
"Great stay, rooms, and service!"
07/20/14 SD5 San Diego, California
Had a great trip to SLO and fantastic stay at this hotel. The owner/manager provided great service throughout our stay. Very friendly staff too. Our two adjoining rooms were very clean and nicely furnished. The recent renovation was very well down. Bedrooms and bathrooms were very nice and beds were extremely comfortable. The location is awesome too! Short walk to all the great restaurants, pubs, and shops in downtown SLO. Only needed the car a few times during our long weekend visit. Given all the factors, this hotel is a step above many of the other options in the area. Will definitely be back and stay again!

I spent two nights at the Avenue Inn earlier this month. The accommodations are clean and modern being newly renovated. Sol, the proprietor, was more than gracious despite the fact that it was nearly midnight when I checked in. LOCATION and PRICE are the two major selling points for this property. Easy walk to downtown SLO and much more affordable than any of the local chain motels! Had no reason to use my car the entire time I was in town. Walking access to trailheads for Johnson Ranch/Cerro San Luis trails. Simple breakfast but just enough to get you started for the day. Looking forward to staying there again soon.
"Clean and Modern"
07/20/14 ruralgirl22 Altona, Canada
Stayed her for a few days on our way through. Rooms are a bit small but they have done a great job at upgrading and modern decor. The only thing that would have been nice is a small fridge.The staff were very helpful and professional. Good value for the money and great location within walking distance to downtown. The breakfast was a really nice addition!
"Affordable AND Nice"
07/20/14 sheberger La Canada Flintridge, California
This hotel has been recently remodeled and is a great deal for the price! It is in downtown SLO and close to the freeway...great location. Staff very nice. I stayed there with two of my sons. Small continental breakfast was included and an easy way to start the day. I will definitely stay there again!
"The Name is Deceiving."
07/20/14 Mary P Nutley
This was neither an Inn nor was on an Avenue & it was on the outskirts of the downtown area. We were there for 4th of July weekend. We paid a lot of money for the 2 days. This is a Motel. Nothing special. The bed was very comfortable but it was not worth the money. Our room was on the 2nd floor of an outside walkup staircase. Kind of tough considering this was the first 2 days of our 14 day trip with lots of luggage. The accommodations were very rudimentary but clean. If you don't mind a motel than this May be ok for you. I expected so much more & was very disappointed.
"Great location, clean rooms, ideal stopover"
07/15/14 Adam M Winchester, United Kingdom
This place is a classic motel style set-up but has clearly been refurbished in recent past. The rooms are a good size and are all new and clean. Comfortable beds, efficient A/C and well equipped bathrooms. Breakfast is basic but a welcomed 'extra' when all you're really paying for is a room for the night. Ideal for a stopover when driving the Pacific Coastal Highway as we were. We stayed on a Thursday night, which turned out perfect as that's when the town's weekly Farmer's Market is on, which sees one of the main streets downtown (10 min walk from the motel) closed to traffic and stalls set out along both sides with live music and BBQ stalls. Super friendly staff, particularly ex-pat Brit' Sol Taylor who was very friendly and chatty on the desk! :)

I had a business trip to the Central California coast and was unable to find lodging in one of my regular hotels, so I took a chance on Avenue Inn based on the reviews here on Trip Advisor. Well, I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. I was told it used to be a rather run-down Travel Lodge, but the new owners fixed it up. And fix it up they did. They didn't just put on a fresh coat of paint, but they put in new carpet, drapes, beds, linens, granite counter tops and so on. From the outside it looks like a well-kept motel, but inside it looks like a modern upscale room in a nice hotel. We kept the car parked all weekend and were able to walk a few blocks up the street to downtown San Luis Obispo for lots of great restaurants, shops and things to see. I would recommend Avenue Inn.
"Recently Renovated in SLO town"
07/14/14 Jeff P El Segundo, California
Great location to visit all of downtown SLO. Only .5mi. from the Mission. Rooms and the bathrooms have been redone and are clean and very comfortable. The units are really very quite. Very good value.
