The Avenue Inn and Spa, although in the finishing stages of lobby renovation, was still a delightful experience for us on a weekend trip to Rehoboth Beach to celebrate my wife's birthday. The inn is very conveniently located about two blocks from the RB boardwalk and is in the middle of the downtown commercial district of Rehoboth Beach. We parked the car in the underground garage on Friday night and next go into it when we drove away Sunday afternoon. The room was very comfortable, spacious and nicely appointed; we were on the top floor, but nowhere in the building was noise ever a problem. With the inn completing renovations, food wasn't available on site (coffee, tea and cookies available in the temporary check-in area), we received a voucher to use at Sammy's Restaurant - directly across the street - where we had a very good breakfast both mornings.The service staff was accommodating and friendly and laid-back, which added to the relaxed enjoyment of our stay. Rehoboth Beach is filled with interesting and (some) unusual shops, and we just didn't have enough time to explore all the possibilities. On a warm summer day the beach is but a block or so away, and the hotel offers its own aquatic amenities, including a sauna, pool and sun deck. Very pleasant stay!
