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

After several years of staying here for an annual anniversary trip, I was dismayed this year to have to cancel. Having booked and paid for our weekend a year in advance, just over a week before we were scheduled to arrive, Alex called to try to convince us to accept a smaller room than what we booked. We had booked... More

Our family stayed at the Avondale for a short mid-week getaway and we'd definitely stay there again. It was nothing fancy, but it served our needs. It was conveniently located across the street from the beach and just a few blocks from the Washington Street Mall. There was adequate on-site parking and the room was extremely clean and well maintained.... More

We had the corner room on the top floor which had an amazing view. The hotel room was a nice size and clean. I liked that the bedroom and living room was separated. We went the weekend before Memorial Day which is off season but had a great time. Every morning we walked the beach and saw Dolphins. The Dolphins... More
