“The avenue inn is the perfect place to stay while visiting Rehoboth Beach.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

I have been staying at the Avenue Inn for years while visiting Rehoboth Beach at different times of the year. It's the perfect place to be. During the summer you're close to the beach. Beach chairs and towels are available. And even while being so close to the beach a shuttle is still offered. During off season it's very festive. Decorated nicely for Halloween and Christmas. And no matter what time of year there is the great staff. Always friendly, helpful and welcoming. And location-if you don't want to you don't have to drive anywhere. Activities, entertainment and restaurants are all within walking distance. The spa of course is wonderful. Probably one of the best that I've been too. The hotel is spotless. Rooms and social areas. Something I always look forward to is a complimentary glass of wine. Very relaxing sitting by the fire! And also the complimentary breakfast. Not just a roll or bagel. Add egg casseroles, French toast casserole, baked apples, cereal and fruit and you have it all!!! And of course the warm cookies every night by the fire. It all makes you feel so at home. Without the stress!!! So excited about the renovation. Which by the way was not an imposition at all. Can't wait to see the end result!!! I can honestly say the the Avenue Inn is my most favorite place to be! I love it! My family (husband, children and grandchildren) love it. And my friends that visit with me love it. Thank you Avenue Inn family for giving us a wonderful place to be!!!!! And all the great memories!! Looking forward to many more!!!

My husband and I have stayed at the Avenue Inn (and Avenue II) three times a year for many years and think it's the best deal at the beach. The wonderful breakfasts, wine and cheese every evening and warm cookies before bed add to the value and enjoyment of one's stay, and give guests a chance to mingle if they choose. Other amenities, like the beautiful indoor pool, wet and dry sauna and outdoor hot tub add luxury. The staff, most of whom have had very long careers at the Avenue, are professional, friendly and extremely accomodating. They are the ones who make their guests feel truly welcome time after time.

Although the Avenue Inn is currently under construction the temporary reception area is nicely set up and welcoming. Since we visited over a weekend we were not bothered by construction noise. Breakfast vouchers were given for a restaurant across the street. Vouchers could have been a bit more generous. We will definitely visit again. We're anxious to see the finished reception and breakfast room area.

Room Tip: Our favorite room is the king size with jacuzzi. It wasn't available this time. We had the kin...

It is nice to know we were able to make the temporary lobby a comfortable setting for our winter time guests. We are working hard to get the new lobby and breakfast room open in May. We hope you will be able to visit soon after to see all of the changes we are making to make the Avenue evern better. Thank you for the review.

I have reviewed the Avenue Inn & Spa a couple of times in the past, and I would like to compliment this establishment again with this review. Myself and my friends have been guests at this Inn numerous times since September of 2006 (15 times to be exact) and every stay has been sheer and utter joy and luxury! The staff is always friendly, never any issues with them. We love Margo and Mary Lou, hoping they're still there this coming season! The wine and cheese reception is one of my favorite events at the Inn every evening at 5. It's a fabulous way to relax and unwind from the stress of being on the beach all day. Lol. The other nice thing about the evening wine & cheese reception is meeting other guests of the Inn...even the guests are friendly! I would recommend trying to get a room that overlooks Rehoboth Ave. I think it's more interesting to be on that side of the building, more interesting views, you can see the ocean and see people coming and going...and it really isn't loud at night when trying to sleep. Rehoboth Beach is a very quiet town at night, it's not like you're in midtown Manhattan or something! The Avenue Inn is also very close to the beach, only a block...and it is a quick walk to many bars and restaurants and shops. The Inn has also updated numerous rooms over the past few years. I'm not sure if they've done all of them, but even the ones that haven't been completely renovated are still very nice. The Inn also serves a very nice breakfast, nicer than what you get in most hotels. I have stayed in a number of hotels around Rehoboth before we began to make this our home along the Delaware shore, and this Inn is by far and away my favorite. It's not the cheapest place, but good things aren't usually cheap. And so 2012 was another triumphant season of staying at the Avenue Inn and Spa...and I expect '13 to be even better as the lobby is being enlarged and renovated and pretty much completely changed! I can't wait to see it! Going back in June, see ya then!

Room Tip: Try to stay on the Rehoboth Ave side

Took my wife for a spa weekend as a surprise. She loved the spa and would highly recommend it. We got an upgraded room with a jacuzzi tub. Room was nice, but not luxurious. Jacuzzi was a nice add-on, but next time I probably would rather get the standard room with the sitting area. My wife hated the pillows, and there were a few small areas that could use some maintenance (mostly painting). The wine/cookies each night were a nice bonus, although my wife is pregnant, so we did not get to partake this time. Overall, we were very pleased with our experience, but not blown away. Would give it 4.5/5 if it were an option. Definitely much better than the last place we stayed in Rehoboth (henlopen hotel)
