“Good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We enjoyed the place, although when we stayed it had some issues that I think are being addressed by the current renovation. Location is good, parking is easy and convenient, being able to borrow beach chairs is a plus (although you need to get them early or they are all gone!) The breakfast overcrowding was the main issue in summer 2012: the small breakfast room was simply too small and guests had to sit or stand in the lobby or take their food up to their rooms. Also, the fitness room was small and at least one of the machines was not operating when we were there. But otherwise it is a good, solid hotel and to be recommended.

Room Tip: We stayed in one of the cheaper rooms with view of rooftops and Rehoboth Avenue. Not noisy, and unle...

We have stayed at the Avenue several times over the years and have always been very pleased with our accomodations. It is clean and quiet. The wine, cheese, and chocolate chip cookies are a special touch.

Room Tip: The King-size suite with a fireplace and jacuzzi tub is a private oasis. Its worth the extra money.

Great hospitality, clean rooms, wonderful location. There over the weekend so no construction. Wine and cheese in the lobby a real bonus and a surprise. Be sure to check out the indoor stainless steel pool!

Every winter we spend a weekend at the Avenue Inn while visiting Rehoboth Beach. We always have a great experience. Even though they have major renovations going on they have worked to accommodate their guests. The hotel is clean, high end and their staff is wonderful. It is the small touches like cookies at night and wine and cheese in the evening. We always have a great experience!

Over a few visits, I have stayed at various condos located in Rehoboth Beach. I have always loved the quaintness of Rehoboth, especially along Rehoboth Avenue. This year I decided to take a winter trip and try one of the boutique type inns located off of the main strip and beach. Avenue Inn was a perfect match. I really appreciated the effort that the owner and staff have put into the Inn. The pool, hot tub, and sauna are kept clean. The new furniture, bath, TV, and carpet are simple, but definitely not cheap. The owner also made every accommodation possible for guests during the renovation. The service is very accommodating, the manager on duty even insisted on making a new pot of decaf for me (at 10pm) ! Last, the location is tremendous being right on the main strip, a block from the beach. The Inn also has a great little underground garage. The only minus from perfection is that they keep an ash tray at the entrance of this garage and it can smell like smoke down there sometimes. However, this does not seep into the Inn, and perhaps better to have it there to dissuade smokers from smoking inside as they may not want to venture into the outdoor elements to smoke. Overall, a great little Inn and a perfect match for Rehoboth Beach. I definitely will be back.

This place is amazing! My husband and I stayed here while we were on our anniversary trip. The room was beautiful and comfortable, the staff was beyond pleasant and helpful, and I love the homey feel with free wine/cheese/choc chip cookies in the lobby. We found this hotel at the last minute and I wouldn't stay anywhere else again!

The Avenue Inn is a great place to spend time in Rehobeth. The room is a nice size and even though they were under construction, the meeting room was a decent replacement for the Lobby. Also, getting the voucher for Sammy's Kitchen was great while the kitchen was under construction. It's location is perfect for the beach and also for shopping. We had a wonderful time there.

Thank you for the review kathleen and for staying with us. It has been a little nerve racking for all of us during our lobby renovation to make sure we can deliver the same experience our guests and reviewers expect when staying with us. Thank you for letting us know how we are doing during the process
