“Never disappointed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

We stay at the Avenue Inn once or twice every year and think it's a great place for a relaxing and enjoyable getaway. Everyone there is very friendly and helpful, and we always feel like we're going back to see old friends again. The lobby is large, comfortable, and quite beautiful. There's another good-sized room nearby with a fireplace, comfortable furniture plus tables that can also be used for games. This room is for adults only during the morning hours till 11:00 a.m., which is a nice treat if you want to take your breakfast into a quieter area than the breakfast room usually is. But, the breakfast room is very nice with lots of tables where several breakfast items are available from 7:00-10:00 a.m. seven days a week. There is wine and cheese in the lobby each evening from 5:00-6:00, and warm chocolate chip cookies each night at 8:00. Can't argue with that!
The hotel rooms are always clean and comfortable. We like to stay in one that overlooks Rehoboth Ave., and if you stay on the 3rd floor, you can see the ocean. The Avenue Inn has a nice indoor pool, but be aware that if you are staying during a school vacation, this hotel is very popular, and the pool is usually filled with families with children. Nothing wrong with that, it's just something to keep in mind. One of the people in our party wondered if there could be an "adult swim" time set aside each day as there is at summer swim clubs, but I'm not sure if that would be feasible.
All in all, the Avenue Inn is a great place to stay, and if you haven't stayed there yet, give it a try, and you won't be disappointed.

This is,our second visit to Avenue Inn. My daughter and I visited Rehoboth in September and stayed here. We liked it so much we returned last week and took my husband along. It was his first visit to Rehoboth Beech. Avenue Inn is close to the beach and all activities, and we felt very safe here. I was so glad they provide beach chairs so we don't have to load the car down. Rooms are spacious, and include a microwave and refrigerator. The breakfast is included and very good. We also enjoyed the nightly wine and cheese and home baked cookies. Nice work out room, pool, steam room and hot tub and pool. We can't wait to return.

Room Tip: The pool is located on the third floor so there is a slight smell of chlorine on that level. If you...

The Avenue Inn is the perfect choice for your getaway - it features a number of amenities - beginning with updated décor and comfortable, clean rooms. I typically check-in later in the day so the wine and cheese are a fun, relaxing reception. The chocolate chip cookies are the ultimate pre-bedtime snack. The breakfast buffet is warm and cozy and relaxing - eat from a wide selection of breakfast treats at your leisure without feeling rushed! The Avenue Inn is ideally located in the center of Rehoboth close to the beach, shopping (tax-free) and a wide variety of restaurants which cater to every taste and price range. The Avenue in is my "go to" spot when I'm staying in Rehoboth.

After staying at a few different hotels in Rehoboth Beach through the years, we discovered The Avenue Inn and we never went back to any others. The Avenue Inn is exceptional in so many ways...staff, rooms, amenities, comfort, and location. We usually stay over Easter weekend and attend the sunrise service which is a convenient short walk from the hotel. They provide an extensive breakfast buffet, wine and cheese in late afternoon, and warm cookies in the evening.The rooms and beds are comfortable and clean and the it's nice to see the same people at the front desk year after year...for us it's like a home away from home.

Room Tip: We enjoy a balcony room overlooking Rehoboth Avenue...it's active during the day, but quiet at n...

If you are looking for somewhere to stay in the center of Rehoboth Beach DE my family and I highly recommend this hotel. Who doesn't love a great location, beautiful decor, daily breakfast, wine and cheese AND freshly baked chocolate chips cookies at 8pm??? An outdoor hot tub, sauna and steam room enjoyable. All you have to bring is great weather!

Sosiec,

Relaxing.....yes that would be a description of the Avenue that we need to use more. When a guest stays at the Avenue and goes home relaxed, we have truly met an expectation that our staff wants to meet each and every day with each and every guest. Thank you for inviting others to stay at the Avenue.

As always had a wonderful time with Jim Powers & his staff. The new addition to the Avenue Inn is great. The breakfast area is larger with more choices. The seating area for the wine/cheese makes it easy to meet and talk with other guests. The hot tub is my favorite. There is so much more that this place has to offer but you need to come and stay to find out for yourself.

Our first visit and highly recommended. The hotel is very clean from the lobby to the rooms to the pool. Service was excellent and no complaints at all.

The lobby is impressive, and almost appears too upscale for people coming from the beach. No complaint and actually a compliment, where they have two dressing areas with a shower. Great for arriving early or staying the afternoon after checkout.

The room was typical of any hotel, perhaps slightly more spacious than most, with a separate vanity area and a bathroom that was not overly cramped as some hotel bathrooms. We stayed in a king room facing Rehoboth Ave, which had a nice deck with two rocking chairs ... a nice touch. It also had a sleeper sofa. The room had some traffic noise, where I would prefer one on Wilmington Ave for the next stay.

The pool area was very impressive. The pool is indoors and is large and warm ... also clean. There is also a sauna and steam room and an outside hot tub (no view however). These features exceeded our expectations!

Breakfast was great, with several quiche options, cereals, fresh fruit, yogurt, French toast and numerous bread options. Heard people making positive comments to the staff about the food.

The wine happy hour was also a nice touch. Not top notch wine but free and drinkable.

The only negative is that we like an HAC system that lets the fan run continuously for white noise. That did not work ... only auto mode worked.

Stay here! ... but don't take my reservation :-). We will return.

Room Tip: Depends on what you like. Rehoboth avenue rooms are great if you like people watching and a narrow...

TravelmOre99,

Thank you for all of your positive comments. Every staff member works very hard to keep the Avenue as the #1 hotel in Rehoboth Beach. As for the air conditioner system I believe there is a switch on the inside that our maintenance department can flip which would allow the fan to run continuously. Next time you stay with us, please let us know and we'll do what we can to make that happen. Thank you again for your review.
