“Great Getaway”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

This was our second stay at the Boardwalk Plaza. We stayed in an ocean front room. Being lovers of the ocean, we find this a romantic and restful experience. Having experienced both the King size bed and double queen beds options, I would recommend the double queen with sitting room. Positive experience on both visits. Staff is friendly and helpful. The pub is nice, comfortable and has a good menu selection. Lighter fare and less costly food option. Main dining area is terrific. Great ambience, ocean view, and very good food and service. A little pricey but well worth it. We stayed during off season . City is less crowded, parking is not an issue. Can walk from hotel to most destinations in town. Only negative is that many stores are closed during the week, but still much is open.

I stayed there with my husband and my two year old daughter. The hotel is beautiful and the location is perfect, right on the beach. We really enjoyed the indoor spa pool, the delicious food, and excellent service from the staff. I have already recommended this hotel to friends.

My daughter and I recently stayed at the Boardwalk Plaza for two nights. The oceanview room with two queens also had a sitting room that was separated by the bathroom area - both the bedroom and sitting room had tv's and pocket doors which was great if one of us wanted to stay up late or sleep in late. The hotel even gave us a complimentary cheese/fruit/champagne tray since I was celebrating my 50th birthday. The hotel employees were excellent and the location of the hotel is perfect. We will definitely stay here again - perfect for a romantic getaway or a girl's weekend of shopping.

Just visiting the pretty Boardwalk Plaza Hotel in Rehoboth Beach Delaware. It has always reminded me of a wedding cake from the outside and have wanted to stay there and see what it was like. We were not disappointed. The staff was so gracious and helpful to us. A beautiful huge arrangement of fresh flowers greeted us in the lobby as well as their interesting parrots ( real ones). There was also a plate of fresh brownies and apple cider. We had reserved a small two room suite with a side view of the ocean which we thought was very reasonably priced. The two rooms had pocket doors and two TV's which allowed a quiet space when the tv was on in the other room. We enjoyed a very special room service breakfast. The hotel is associated with The Point Coffee House and Bake Shoppe and the breakfast included toast that was made from wonderful bakery bread. In addition to the rye toast I ordered we were given a basket that included corn bread and oat bread. We had made to ordered omelets ( spinach and Swiss cheese) that came with nice hash browns and fresh fruit. The server who brought our breakfast was very gracious. The room service menu was the same price as the dining room which was a big plus. We really enjoyed having the separate sitting room and the bathroom had a good shower which is always important.

We stayed three days here on a return trip home from the South. We have stayed here before and find it a beautiful well-run hotel. The staff is wonderful from housekeeping to the wait staff--friendly and professional. The food at Victoria's is excellent and the view superb. Special thanks to Pamela at the front desk and Tom, the Concierge, for making our stay enjoyable. I would have given this a 5 star rating were it not for the unreliable internet service. This seems to be a city wide problem, not just the hotel.

My Aunt and I had a pretty rough winter and just wanted to get away for a couple days. I'm so glad we chose the Plaza Hotel on the Rehoboth boardwalk. My aunt is using a walker due to a couple fractures from falling on snow and I use a walker due to back problems. At check in, the employee at the desk was very helpful. She told me the handicap rooms are ocean view only and don't have balconies. I said the ocean front view and balcony were what we were excited about, so we decided to stay in the room we'd booked rather than try to switch to a handicap. At that point, she offered to send a shower chair to our room. She also let me know there were hand rails in the tub. The bellman helped with our luggage and was very helpful in pointing out features in our room. While the rooms weren't huge, we both had no trouble navigating our walkers between the bedroom and the sitting room facing the ocean. It was chilly out so we spent a lot of time here, looking at the beach and ocean out our big front window. There was a folding table in our room where we played cards and ate pizza we'd ordered from a local pizzeria. The bathroom was small and the sink was actually outside the bathroom. There was a cute gift bag with everything from a nail file to make up remover pads. The sofa and wicker chair in the sitting room were comfortable and the rooms were decorated in Victorian fashion. We only ate one meal in the hotel and that was breakfast. Prices were a little high ($9 for a bowl of oatmeal ??? ) but service was excellent and the food was very good. We loved the homemade breakfast breads they served with the meal. The hotel and restaurant were very clean. There was an honor bar in our room that we didn't use, but prices for snacks seemed reasonable. My Aunt used the indoor/outdoor pool and she said it was almost as warm as bath water - she loved it. All in all, it was a wonderful hotel experience. I was really impressed at how everyone associated with the Plaza was so darn nice !! I wish I'd booked for more than 2 nights and we are already talking about a return visit .

This was one of our best hotel experiences. Every employee we encountered was polite and helpful, and the view from our oceanfront suite was amazing (although unfortunately very foggy most of the weekend). The Victorian theme is not particularly our style, but our room was still very clean, comfortable, and large, and the bathroom and vanity seemed recently updated. We really enjoyed the heated pool on our rainy and cool weekend. The complimentary underground parking was much appreciated during the rain storms, and in nicer weather, the hotel is within walking distance of several restaurants and attractions. I also appreciated that a concierge promptly called me after our online booking to discuss a room preference. I was very impressed with the excellent customer service that we received in the booking process.

Room Tip: During nicer weather, it is worth it to stay on the fourth floor "adults only" floor becau...
