I have stayed twice for business. It was well located to downtown activities and access to the freeway. The rooms appeared new, and were clean with comfortable beds. I would highly recommend the Avenue for anyone needed a week business stay. Internet was fast and easily accessible. There was some construction nearby so there was some noise when the windows...

We were lucky enough to arrive in SLO on a Thursday (stayed one night only) for the market - real fun walking along the main strip with food stalls and the like. Hotel was close by and clean and comfortable.

Great location, friendly, very clean. Also very expensive on weekend nights. The service is always quite friendly. Breakfast is included, though it does not offer any protein (e.g. eggs, bacon, sausage, etc.) We have stayed there before, love that we can walk a few blocks to everything downtown.

Nice place near the road, with large rooms, comfortable beds and a good bathroom. Parking included and breakfast was also very complete, with waffles and all. We managed to book minutes before arriving and it all went well.

we had your basic, dark motel room but there was no freeway noise and the motel - ahem, inn - is within a short walk of downtown, whereas the motels by Cal Poly are a long walk from downtown and some of the actual inns look chintzy and fussy to me. I don't think I'd like to stay there more...

My family stayed for one night and this was our first time at this hotel. The location was great as we were able to walk into town and have dinner (about a 10-15 minute walk). Our room was an upstairs, corner room and it was very quiet and felt large enough for the four of us. Everything was newer, quite...

We wanted a hotel near restaurants and that's what we got! Great location within walking distance to historic downtown and all of the restaurants, shopping, and the mission. Plus a nice, clean, and updated room.

We enjoyed the location which is walking distance to all the restaurants, stores and the Mission. Hotel is basic but very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is just a simple continental breakfast, I always prefer something a little more healthy but can't complain for the price!

Quick but memorable. Nice decor and comfy beds but what really makes this place special is how quiet it Is! It's right next to downtown SLO but you wouldn't know it. Nor would you know how close it is to the freeway. Good breakfast as well!

We stayed one night, so we could go dance at the Madonna Inn, very nearby. It was excellent fir the price, free parking near our room, and a pretty decent Continental breakfast included. I definently recommend it.
