“I come back year after year.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Great location, nice new rooms! Avenue II is my choice due to the great rates and location!!! Very clean and you can park your car and never move it until you are ready to leave! Nice shopping area and plenty of restaurants available! Very close to the beach - - about 1 1/2 blocks!

This review is specific to the "Avenue 2" section of the Avenue Inn hotel. The Avenue 2 building is separate from the main Avenue Inn building. The Avenue 2 building is directly on Rehoboth Avenue and has 12 units. Half of them face Rehoboth Avenue, and the other half face the back parking lot. All the units are bigger than your standard motel room. There is a small "living area" with a love-seat that is also a sleeper. Then you have a bedroom with a TV (not a flat screen) and a mini-fridge and a microwave oven. The bathroom at the back of the unit is quite large but only has a tub/shower combo, toilet and sink. The entire room is large and spread out, but the furnishings are sparse and could use a little updating.
The room was VERY clean and fresh.
There was ample parking behind the building--you enter from Wilmington Ave, behind the hotel.
The Avenue 2 building has no elevator, so your room will be either on the 2nd or 3rd floor, all accessed by stairs.
I enjoyed my stay because of the location right on Rehoboth Avenue. I parked my car and walked everywhere all over town! I didn't get back in my car until it was time to checkout and leave.
You have access to all the amenities (pool, etc.) of the main Avenue Inn building, but I didn't have time to make use of them, but it's also a bit of a walk from the Avenue 2 building.
All in all, this is an OK choice for Rehoboth Beach, and I would consider coming back on a future visit.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for a room over-looking Rehoboth Avenue, unless you don't like a lot of street no...

This was my third stay at the Avenue Inn, and I had high expectations from my previous visits. However, it was only upon arrival that I learned that the ground floor facilities were all under renovation. Practically, this made ingress and egress from the hotel much more difficult, and the temporary "lobby" on the 2nd floor was not clearly marked from the underground garage entrance, which meant we wandered for about 15 minutes before locating check-in. Despite a completely empty overflow lot, the manager refused our request for an extra parking pass, which thankfully was a minor inconvenience since we were there before Memorial Day and could park on the street for free. We also had to visit the reception desk each morning for the discounted breakfast passes to the cafe across the street rather than being able to collect them all at once (typically the Inn offers a complimentary breakfast buffet on the first floor).

All in all, it was certainly not a horrible trip, and the Inn's location just off Rehoboth Ave. is still a prime draw. I look forward to seeing their newly renovated spaces, but I wish they'd taken more care with the customers who paid full price for reduced amenities during their renovation process.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking Rehoboth Ave (available at both the Avenue and Avenue II locations).

Very nice accommodations! Love the extra touches - nightly wine and cheese and cookies! Location was perfect for family with small kids - we didn't use the car once! Can't wait to visit again once the lobby construction is complete!

I stayed at the Avenue II last week and the room was very spacious, clean and a great value! It is right upstairs from the Purple Parrot, but since I enjoy going out, I did not mind the noise nor was it noisy very late. If you want to be a block from the beach and in the heart of the action on Rehoboth Ave, this is a great place to stay!

Avenue Inn and Spa in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware is our favorite hotel. We stay there every year, a few times/year. The hotel is spotless, has all the ammenities we could ask for, and the staff is very helpful and friendly (Jim and Mary Lou are great!). The hotel staff goes out of there way to make your stay the best it can be. The hotel is beautiful and is in a perfect location. You can park your car and walk to all the shops and restaurants that Rehoboth has to offer. They also offer little extra touches that no other hotel offers. They give you a free continental breakfast (which offers a little more than most), wine and cheese every evening, and baked cookies at night. Avenue Inn has become our second home away from home and when we visit Rehoboth, we would not think of staying anywhere else!

Room Tip: Rooms on Rehoboth Ave offer a nice and lively view. The rooms facing Wilmington Ave are quieter. W...

We were running behind, and didn't get to Avenue Inn & Spa until 10pm. However, we received a courtesy call, asking if we were still planning on coming. Once we got there the staff was very nice, and gave us information of places to go. They even had fresh cookies in the lobby. Our stay there was very relaxing, and enjoyable. Even though their restaurant was under going renovations they gave us vouchers for 2 nearby restaurants. We will definitely be coming back to this hotel! I have even recommended it to friends, and family.
