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.

We stayed here a couple of nights and decided to tour the town on foot. This place was a great starting place to hit up the farmers market and is close to the 101 for straying farther. 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...

Relatively inexpensive, yet kept clean and functional. But be aware that the most costly places in SLO are at most twice as much as the Avenue Inn, so if you can spare $125, 150, or 200, you will find better than this place which is around $100 per night. Rooms here are spacious enough. Bath and shower clean and spruced...

Stayed a night on this place during a road trip. Place was in a great condition, with clean rooms and an adequate breakfast. However, the guy on the front desk had a strange request during the check in. We were told that he needed to photocopy our passport (which is ok) and our credit card on both sides. When confronted...
