Situated about a block from the family-friendly beach and boardwalk in the heart of downtown Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, families will not only love this hotel’s location, but will also enjoy the nautical dÃ©cor.
They’ll also enjoy the hotel’s in-room conveniences — guestrooms with complimentary Wi-Fi, mini-fridges, microwaves, and DVD players, plus balconies that overlook downtown. Some guests will also find a fireplace or relaxing rocking chairs situated on their balconies.
Other perks include free breakfast, along with complimentary wine and cheese in the afternoons and fresh-baked cookies in the evenings. The Avenue Lounge, which serves light fare and cocktails, is another place where families can eat.
And if it’s a rainy day, don’t worry — it’s always warm at the indoor pool.

We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and well decorated. The bed was so comfortable and the towels were excellent. We enjoyed the complimentary tea, coffee and water during the day and spent time hanging out in the lobby area. We also loved the chocolate chip cookies that were served in the evening. We liked the breakfast selections but the scrambled eggs were a bit hard and the ham was not good. The fruit was excellent. That’s the only area that could be upgraded. Thank you for the excellent stay.
The Avenue Inn & Spa is the perfect spring break getaway for both parents and teens. Close to the beach and the boardwalk. Beautiful rooms, indoor pool and saunas (with bluetooth capability so you can relax to your favorite music - this was a hit with my teen son), jacuzzi, sun deck and fitness center. This relaxing hotel has everything to please everyone.
But it’s the little things that are wonderful - a great breakfast to start your day, coffee/tea/water/hot chocolate 24/7, beach towels (in case your forget), wine and cheese hour to relax before dinner and chocolate chip cookies after!
We arrived early for check in, but our room was ready so we could start our break right away.
I chose this hotel after reading great reviews and I was not disappointed and thoroughly impressed. Will definitely be back for another getaway. Thank you for such a wonderful stay.

The Art of Smart Timing
While Rehoboth Beach is at its busiest during the summer months, there are several events that take place throughout the year that bring people to town.
Rehoboth Beach is located about one-hour south of Dover, Delaware and about 10 minutes north of Dewey Beach. The Salisbury-Ocean City Wicomico Regional Airport, located in Maryland, is about an hour from Rehoboth Beach and offers connecting flights from Philadelphia or Baltimore. Philadelphia International Airport and Baltimore-Washington International Airport are both about two and half hours away from Rehoboth Beach.
The location of the Avenue Inn & Spa makes everything very. Families can easily walk along sidewalks or the boardwalk and find everything they may need. The beach, restaurants, shops, boardwalk and amusement rides are all within a few minutes walk to the Avenue Inn & Spa. A car is needed to venture further away from the hotel.
