We stayed here for 5 nights over Memorial Day weekend and after. Clean room, fridge, ocean view, quiet. Excellent access to restaurants and the sea front. Good base for exploring the local area. We were birdwatching, and all the best sites were within a 15-35 minute journey.

We stayed here for a family weekend last May. The owners are very friendly, rooms are clean, and it is in a great location. We were within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants. It was nice to sit out on the porch and not only have an ocean view but we could watch the horse and carriages go...

We stayed at the Avondale for three nights in mid July over a weekend. We booked it last minute and the receptionist over the phone was very polite and helpful. Upon check in we were early so we gave them our cell phone number and they called us as soon as it was ready, which was an hr or so...

I spent only one night in the Avondale by the Sea during off season (October 3/4, 2012). I chose the hotel because my friends were staying there. I was happy with the choice. Loved being ocean front and being able to look out my large window or sit in the rocking chair in front of my room to see the...
