“Very nice hotel that is close to the beach”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

The rooms are large and clean and many rooms have a balcony which is a nice touch. The people at the front desk are friendly and helpful and knowledgeable. There are beach chairs to borrow and there is even a driver to take you back and forth to the beach so you don't have to lug everything. The breakfast was so-so, both days they offered eggs that looked like they were baked in muffin cups and had an odd texture and taste. Other than that, this hotel is very, very nice.

I spent 3 nights in July with my 14 and 11 year old and we had a great time. Arrival was great with easy parking in the underground parking garage (overflow paring is just a few feet away in a open lot) and we were able to check-in early which was great and let us get to the beach right away. The lobby was recently renovated and looks great and is surprisingly large. Our room number was 222 and had two large queen size beds with a balcony with a couple rocking chairs overlooking Rehoboth Ave. The room was also recently renovated and was plenty big with a flat screen TV, microwave, and good sized mini fridge. The AC unit in the room is a bit noisy but you get used to it. Street noise was not an issue.

The morning breakfast was good and the staff did a great job of refilling the offerings and kept the breakfast room very clean.

The Inn is in a great location for walking to all the shops and restaurants and Lew who drives the beach shuttle cart is great. He drives you to the beach and back and helps you with the Inn's beach chairs. You can call him for a pickup but we never had to as every time we were ready to head back to the Inn Lew was either dropping off other guests or was there waiting. It was the highlight of our stay!

The gym is also remodeled and has a good selection of new equipment and is very spacious. The indoor pool is also pretty big and opens out on to a roof deck which gives it an airy and open feel. There is also a sauna and steam room.

It looked like they were creating a bar just to the left when you walked in to the lobby. It looked very nice and will be another reason to stay and the Avenue Inn.

My only suggestion would be to update the hotel's website soon with pictures of all these renovations as the current pictures on the site make the property look dated instead of the great and new property it really is!

This was our 7th summer staying at the Avenue Inn! Just when I didn't think it could get any better, the Avenue Inn did it again!! Renovations were done and it is bigger and better than ever!! The lobby and breakfast area are much bigger! Breakfast, wine and cheese at 5pm, and chocolate chip cookies at 8pm, makes this the BEST INN at the beach! Rooms and the balconies are FABULOUS, too!! Beach chairs, beach towels, and a pleasant golf cart ride to the beach is AWESOME!! Jim, the General Manager, has always been very professional and accommodating!! HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommended!!

My wife and I stayed here for a night for pur beach getaway and couldn't speak more highly about this hotel.

Wonderful clean rooms. Wonderful service. Free wine at 5??? Awesome! Free chocolate chip cookies at 8??? Amazing! Continental breakfast was good. Pool was nice bit there is a beach near by. Wonderful gym and spa although looked pricey looked nice.


Most importantly there is free shuttle to beach with Lew. He is amazing!!! We never took it bit he always was outside speaking with everyone. A true gentleman! Couldn't have been happier!!!

We loved everything about Avenue Inn: the service, complimentary rides to the beach (even though it is only a couple blocks) and use of beach chairs, pool and sundeck, beautiful and stylish décor and spacious, clean rooms with balconies. The best part of the hotel is that it is within walking distance to all the restaurants and shopping, as well as the beach. We parked in the underground garage and walked everywhere for 5 days. Great restaurants are just blocks away. I highly recommend this hotel- it was obviously the best around!

We always have a great time at the Avenue! The location is fantastic, hotel is clean, convenient breakfast, wine and cheese happy hour and warm chocolate chip cookies---these perks make it an easy choice to come back to. Now, with the beautiful renovation, it is even better! The lobby is absolutely gorgeous and the larger breakfast room was nice. Private computer area and 4 public restrooms with showers were a much-needed improvement. There was even a REALLY NICE guy named Lew who drove a little golf cart shuttle back and forth to the beach. With a 2 year old, this was a really nice perk. He was so nice to our little girl! He made our stay.
Thanks, Avenue Inn! We shall return....Kudos!

I would highly recommend Avenue Inn & Spa. Lovely decor the moment you step into the lobby. We had a Deluxe suite which was so spacious and comfortable. The hotel staff rocks. All the amenities were as stated in brochure. Breakfast was more than adaquate. Love the Waffles. So tasty. Love the adult room for us older guests who prefer quiet in the morning. Very nice touch with the wine and cheese in the evening. Gave you the opportunity to socialize with other guests if you so choose. Love the chocolate chip cookies. So helpful to have luggage carts available upon arrival and departure. Didn't use the jitney to beach since it was only a one block walk but was always there ready and waiting with chairs. This was our first visit to Rehoboth and would definately recommend. Great restaurants. The town of Lewes was definately worth a visit. A mini Cape May with lovely restaurants. My only regret was that we had to leave. This hotel is a definate keeper on my list. You should update the website though, doesn't do the hotel justice that it so deserves.

Room Tip: Since this was our first stay and we had a suite hard to recommend any other accommodations, but in...
