Just home after 3 fabulous days and nights at The Inn and we are already thinking about our next visit. What a wonderful find! We only live 90 minutes away but wanted to go someplace special for my birthday. It far exceeded our expectations! The rooms are all lovely and the breakfasts are amazing. Tami, Vickie, Kelly and Sharon go out of their way to make every guest comfortable in every way possible. We now have a home away from home which we plan to return to again and again. It is a gem right smack in the center of New Smryna Beach, literally steps from everything. We loved every second of our stay.

My GF Ann and I just stayed at the Inn and it was honestly one of the best hotel experiences of my life. The facility is beautiful, the staff is amazing and the food was GREAT! Tammy, Kelly, and Vicky were all wonderfully friendly, and made us feel relaxed and welcome in their home. I said “home”, because honestly that’s the way it felt. When we said good bye we felt like we were leaving friends. It was as good a hotel stay as I have ever had, and I am a well traveled 55 year old man. It completely changed the way I felt about Bed and Breakfast type hotels. If you can talk Kelly into making her amazing banana bread, you’ll be richly rewarded!

About five years ago, when we moved over to the east side of town, we began beaching it at New Smyrna, instead of Clearwater. I fell in love with this little town that reminded me of ‘home’, of our beachside communities in south Jersey.
One day not too long after, I saw signs for a bed and breakfast being built. All that year, we watched the progress with interest. And when the storyline for THE POSSE dropped into my head, it wasn’t long before I realized that this sweet B and B was going to play a big part.
When I wrote the book, I’d never been inside it. As a matter of fact, I wrote the first three Crystal Cove books without going inside! Once I did go in, I was enchanted–it was close to my imagining, but even better.
Every time we stay at the Inn on the Avenue, we love it more. Tami Martin Messina (and Kelly!) create an atmosphere of welcome and home–but with that intangible something extra. It’s more than the gorgeous rooms with their creative decorating and comfort, more than the delicious breakfasts that always make my husband sigh . . . it’s an attitude of joy and peacefulness, and that’s not something that anyone finds at hotels.
If you’re planning a trip to a Florida beach, this is the one spot I can recommend wholeheartedly. Go online or call, and make your reservations–and weekdays are even better than weekends, in my opinion. (And I should add, this is a totally spontaneous, unpaid recommendation–I just love the place that much!)

Absolutely perfect describes the Inn. My initial stay was for 2 days, but I was so enchanted, and had the time, that I extended to stay for a week. Tami and Kelly were so warm and welcoming, you felt like you were at home, and one of the family. Add to that the tasteful and immaculate rooms, the home cooked breakfast, snacks (24/7), the daily “Sangria Happy Hour” and personal turn down service, and you have the most perfect place to stay. So whatever your reason for visiting New Smyrna Beach, this is the place.

We had one night in the Inn and want to compliment Tami on the accommodations, and the excellent breakfast – the make-your-own pancake griddles in the middle of the table got us all talking and sharing stories. The rooms themselves are very comfy and each uniquely and whimsically decorated with Florida colors. And the evening snacks and drinks were delicious.

We stayed at the Inn On The Avenue 1/16/15. We were warmly greeted by the owner Tami upon arrival and were escorted to our room. The Inn was immaculate and very well taken care of. We were told that snacks and drinks were always available and that sangria would be available around 5:30. A nice touch! We went out for the evening and returned to a nice turn down service with bottled water,ice and chocolates. Very comfortable mattress made sleeping easy. Then came breakfast! The table had grills in the center for you to make your own pancakes, while they served wonderful Eggs Benedict and fruit. I made the banana foster pancake!! A wonderful experience for adults traveling without children. Definitely 5 stars and will be back!

Having received a gift certificate for an overnight getaway for our wedding gift from friends, we stayed at the Inn this past weekend. It was such a great experience, we already booked another night for Valentines Day. We also told our friends and they are making reservations for Valentines Day as I type this.
Tami and Kelly do such a wonderful job to make you feel like family. There is nothing that needs to be improved. Absolutely perfect.

I just saw my wedding pictures on your web page! I have to recommend the Inn as a perfect destination wedding place. I had the wedding of my dreams in the place of my dreams. I can’t thank Tami enough for all she did. Simply amazing! Can’t wait to come back for my anniversary.

Our visit to the Inn On The Avenue was an unexpected overnight getaway that turned out perfectly. The decor throughout the Inn is welcoming and comfortable. I loved that all of my favorite colors greeted us when we entered our room. We slept soundly in the most comfortable bed, and Breakfast was delicious. Tami is a gracious hostess and has made Inn On The Avenue the perfect place to escape the cares of life. We’ll be back soon!
