Our small family stayed at Avondale for three nights in early June. We wanted a place close to the beach since we were traveling with our 2 year old daughter. While the hotel is older, it was perfect for our needs and very clean! We loved the view of the ocean from our balcony and the short walk to the... More

Spent two nights here last month, had a great time. The room is basic but large and spotless and the location is amazing. It sits directly across from the beach. All rooms have a balcony with chairs to relax and watch the sunset. We really enjoyed sitting out there. The continental breakfast was good too. There is a small pool... More

We tried to book on line and eventually just called to make reservations because of availabilities. We were flexible in our travel date and this worked out best. Early check-in is not an option as there is absolutely no parking spaces available. We did some afternoon fishing and then found a good parking space when we came back late afternoon... More

Booked this hotel through internet travel agency and within 10 minutes received a courtesy call informing us that our room was 3rd floor and there's no elevator and that the no smoking policy is strictly enforced, very nice. The hotel staff were very pleasant and friendly. Our King bed room was spacious and super clean. The bed was comfortable, there... More

Avondale is our home away from home and Charlie and the crew are always kind and accommodating. We are regulars in the large room. My favorite things about ABTS are the easy parking right near your room usually, location near to stuff like OLSS church, A Ca Mia, Tommy's Hot Dogs, Avalon Coffee, the boardwalk of course, the Bike rental...

The workers there are extremely helpful! Charlie, Alex and Barbie at the pool ran things extremely smoothly and made sure everything was perfect. We loved the location and would highly recommend this place.

I believe that this is the IDEAL cape may hotel to choose. It is right across the street from the beach AND is in walking distance to the washington mall area. It is right down the street on the corner of this hotel. They seem to leave no stone unturned to make your stay wonderful-free continental breakfast is quite lavish,... More

We spent four nights at Avondale by the Sea over the 4th of July weekend. It was everything we needed...right across from the beach and all rooms have a balcony and oceanfront view. The balconies on the north wing of the building are better because they are divided from each other with a railing and a partial wall. On the... More

We reserved a king suite, one of their larger rooms. It was very spacious and comfortable. The sleeping area is in back, the bathroom in the middle, then a sitting area in the front with a door to the balcony with a great view of the beach. This is an older motel, with 3 stories, no elevators. The bed was... More
