Editor's Rating


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 décor.

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.

Great Weekend Stay

by sborzell

Stayed in the Rehoboth Ave King. The room was clean comfortable. The balcony is great for people watching and you can see the ocean. This hotel is right in the heart of town and we were able to walk to everything. The indoor pool is a nice bonus and the hot tub was nice. I am planing a trip back!

Perfect hotel stay!

I can't say enough good things about The Avenue Inn. Booked it for a 2 night stay with my children (15, 14, 10) and we had a fantastic time. Hotel and rooms are beautifully decorated. Staff is warm and friendly. Each day they offer a full breakfast until 10:30am. Wine/cheese/crackers for adults at 5pm and warm chocolate chip cookies at 8pm. My kids couldn't wait for 8pm to arrive! Lol. Pool area was wonderful and enjoyable. We also ate at the Blue Hen next door during their pizza night. Delicious!!

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.

Getting There
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.

Getting Around
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.

For Mom and Dad
Parents will love a little relaxation time at the onsite spa. Spa services include massages, facials, manicures, pedicures and several other body treatments. The spa is open seven days a week.

Quiet Room
A second, glass enclosed lobby area that features a fireplace, several tables and couches is open to adults only from 6 to 10:30 a.m.
