This was our 4th time in the last 7 years that we stayed here. Before staying here the first time we actually stayed in a beach front hotel which was a lot more costly. We chose the Avenue Inn the next stay because we wanted to cut the costs. To our surprise we were treated so much better and didn't want for anything. Even if we had the extra money to stay elsewhere, we wouldn't! Each additional stay at the Avenue was better than the last! On our recent visit in July 2014, we were taken back and totally impressed with all of the updates and renovations! The place is amazingly beautiful and the staff are the best! We look forward to our visit next year!
