Living on the edge...of town

Posted Jul 11, 2014
This is a cute little motel. The room looked recently refurbished. Very clean and modern inside. Typical motel look outside. Free breakfast is always a plus. Walking distance to everything in SLO. The only negative was that in the two queen room, the beds are in two separate areas, so my poor nephew did not feel any of the air con and had a rough sleep. Also, it is literally right next to 101 freeway, so if you're a light sleeper it might be a bit noisy. Great choice for a one night stop.

Nice but unlucky placement.

Posted Jul 8, 2014
We had a good stay at the Avenue Inn. It was very true to the reviews; clean, newly renovated, great location. However, I don't know why, but we were placed in the room immediately adjacent to the house keeping and laundry. We didn't mean to spend a lot of time in our room so I didn't ask to be moved, but were we to come again, I certainly would ask NOT to be place here!

Thanks, Beachglass, for your kind words and the 4-Star rating. Let us know when you'll be staying with us again, and we'll be sure to assign you a room toward the west end (where things are at their quietest). Best summertime wishes.

Staff not friendly. They wanted to gouge me for a full night charge for a couple extra hours late checkout despite the fact it was obviously not fully booked for the night. I left to pay a full night at another local hotel rather than give $ to unfriendly staff that would take advantage of an opportunity.

clean,comfort,style,& service with a smile

From the appearance of the exterior of this hotel, I never expected our room to be so nice. Yet all within a small room came modern unique style, comfort, clean,plus ementies such as fridge, coffee, iron and board, charging outlet at bedsides, flat screen tv, adjustable ceiling mounted shower head, and friendly polite, and very helpful service. It was everything I would want if paying 3 times the price, and such a joy to receive for an affordable room. I will always book here when in SLO.

Worth The Stay

Posted Jun 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
Like most reviewers I enjoyed the room location, comfort, and staff. The only downside is the shower. Its a small square area with the shower head directly above your head. If you don't want to get your hair wet, then you must bend different directions to avoid the water. There is an spray adjustment on the head, but I'm 6 foot and had to stretch to adjust it. A small inconvenience. I would and will stay here again.

Convenient location

Posted Jun 10, 2014
Pros: Within walking distance from downtown San Luis Obispo shops, restaurants, and attractions.
Cons: Know in advance to tell the management about requiring a lower level room if one has difficulty climbing stairs.
Location: This motel is located on a major San Luis Obispo street (Marsh) and there is some street noise, but muffled inside the room.
This motel was comfortable even though rooms are not especially large. The staff was very friendly and helpful. A small but welcomed breakfast buffet is served every morning.
