“One word: Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

Our family: 2 adults and 2 kids (ages 4 and 7) stayed at The Avenue Inn for a week. Here are some highlights why this hotel is just awesome:

First, the location is perfect. Less than a block to the beach and within walking distance to all restaurants and shopping in Rehoboth. We did not step into our car once during our entire 7 night stay!

Second, the service. Everyone at the hotel was super friendly and helpful. I had a somewhat last minute change to my reservation and they worked with me easily. The folks at the front desk were always available and accommodating.

Third, the cleanliness. This hotel is CLEAN. See how big that word is? That's because I really need to emphasize how clean every nook and cranny is. Our room was spotless, which is not easy to maintain with 4 people sharing a room. The lobby, hallways, breakfast area, etc. smelled fresh and clean.

Fourth, the indoor spa. No, not just a pool,....it's much more: a large stainless steel indoor pool, hot tub, outdoor deck with tables & chairs, steam room and sauna.

Lastly but maybe the most important is the 'little extras'. The Inn offers amenities that tell me they understand how to make my hard-earned vacation stress-free and easy: FREE breakfast every day, free fresh towels for the pool and beach, free beach chair rentals, free golf cart shuttle to and from the beach, free wine & cheese in the early evening, free evening cookies for the kids.

We will stay here whenever we visit Rehoboth. There is really no reason to stay anywhere else.

After reading the reviews about Avenue Inn II, I was a little apprehensive to stay at the Annex BUT I can't say anything except nice things regarding our stay. The rooms were clean and the location was perfect! Between the breakfast, happy hour, free chairs/shuttle...what else could you ask for?! The staff was pleasant and helpful and we will definitely stay again! Thanks for your hospitality:)

It is great to read that you chose us because of Tripadvisor and that we came through and delivered a great hotel stay for you. We recognize that the Avenue II building is not like the main building and that it doesnt suit some guests because of the differences though we feel it is still a great room that is excpetionally clean and served by the same great staff. We want any potential guest to always ask lots of questions so that they wont be disappointed when the arrive. We would rather not sell the room than have a guest not enjoy their stay with us. Thank you for choosing the Avenue and for taking the time to review us, it is greatly appreciated.

We spent two nights at the Avenue Inn & Spa and would highly recommend it. The proximity to the beach was perfect. Our room was spacious and very clean. The staff was friendly. Many amenities, but we didn't really use most of them. Still, nice to know they were there. We hope to return next year with my brother and his family.

Room Tip: We chose a 2 bedroom suite which was perfect for a family of 4.

The Avenue Inn is our favorite hotel at the beach. The rooms are very large and the location can't be beat - you can walk anywhere in Rehoboth easily. We love the extras such as the use of beach chairs and towels, plenty of free ice, wine and cheese happy hour every night, breakfast daily, the pool and hot tub... There are so many great amenities. They will even drive you to the beach on a golf cart. Although it's an easy walk to the beach, this is great when you have chairs, a cooler, etc. All of the employees are really friendly and it shows that they truly want you to enjoy your stay.

There aren't many upscale options for accomodations in Rehoboth & those that are, are really expensive. I'd say this place is #4 after Bellmoor, Hotel Rehoboth, Boardwalk Plaza. It does have the 2nd best location after Boardwalk Plaza. Fairly average hotel rooms, but overall just cleaner & better appointed than your typical beach hotel/motel. Definitely friendly people & it's obvious the place is maintained & taken care of. Rate includes underground parking, a golf cart shuttle to the beach, and a couple of treats throughout the day such as cookies. We had room w/balcony but literally no view - looking out at a wall, but that was explained very clearly in advance by a nice man who took the rez over the phone & since I didn't care about the view for this particular visit that was fine. Good to know these things before you commit your credit card, so the attention to detail is appreciated. Would definitely stay there again.
