Boardwalk Plaza Hotel
Ranked #4 of 27 Hotels in Rehoboth Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

Rehoboth Beach was a very pleasant surprise for me! This hotel was fabulous! The staff was so friendly and made me feel like I had known them for years. I ate in the restaurant and my crab cake sandwich was awesome as were the fries. I'm not very familiar with the lay of the land at Rehoboth but the Boardwalk seems like it's in an awesome spot. I parked my car (free parking) and never moved it. Shops and the beach and bars and ice cream... All a very short, pleasant walk. I'm hoping sometime very soon to gather all of my family (we live in Florida) and convince them to head up to Delaware to check out this great town and definitely enjoy the splendid Boardwalk Plaza Hotel. Enjoy!

Stayed: May 2014, travelled on business

Reviewed 10 May 2014

we booked this hotel for our anniversary. It is different, to say the least. TONS of character! Please understand this is not the 'latest and greatest' hotel. I was a little taken a back when we got there - until I realized the meticulous care that has been taken to keep the ornate detail that it is so well known for. Walking through the front door you can easily imagine an elite clientele frequenting the hotel in the early 1900's, dressed to the '9's'. I love the mail slots which helped accommodate long term guests, check them out if you get a chance. The pool is also unique, though you are not going to lounge by it as you may in a newer hotel - a short trip (directly) across the boardwalk will take you to the ocean. The staff is super friendly, the manager had a full and delightful conversation with me on his own initiation. A genuine interest in our daily activities, he helped us with suggestions to make our day even better. Just the warm, welcome you would hope to find from the year round 'locals'. I appreciate that. Elegant Brunch in the dining room - the included assorted breads were delightful. They delivered a special anniversary assortment to our room. Embrace it and I believe you will absolutely not be disappointed. Especially during the off season - a great place for a romantic and unique getaway.

Thank you for the 5-star review! We appreciate your description of our hotel and your advice to others to embrace our property's unique qualities and Victorian theme. It's true that we work very hard to differentiate ourselves from other hotel experiences and are happy to hear that you found those differences enjoyable.

Thank you, also, for the comments on Victoria's. All breads and desserts are made by our sister property, The Point Coffee House and Bake Shoppe, and delivered fresh to us each day. You might enjoy a visit to the shoppe next time you come to town. (You can't miss it, it's located at the "point" where Route 1 meets 1A on your way in/out of Rehoboth Beach.)

Again, our thanks. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future!

We booked here at the last minute and it was great. From the moment we walked in the door the staff were friendly and professional. Everybody smiled and said hello when they saw you. It is right on the boardwalk and two blocks from the main drag in Rehoboth Beach so you can walk everywhere. The room was very clean, comfortable, and up to date. We will stay here again.

My husband and I could not have had a better experience. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and the location is spectacular. It's the only place we will stay when we come to the beach.

We stayed her for one night in March and although it was very windy and chilly, it was a great get away. The hotel is right on the boardwalk and in close proximity to all the shops and restaurants. And there were many that were open and it was quite busy for a Thursday night. The hotel is old-fashioned Victorian (a little bit goofy) but you couldn't beat the price for an off-season oceanfront suite. I wouldn't want to pay the on-season price! Very expensive. We did not try the restaurant because it was quite pricey as well. It was well worth the extra $$ to have oceanfront. The staff was very cordial and parking was very easy. We hit the boards for a nice walk (twice) and the outlets on our way home. A very enjoyable two days.

An amazing property that has it all!
The location is perfect, the restaurant outstanding and the staff is friendly and accommodating.
It's like a step back to the early 1900's in decor but with all the amenities of today.
Balcony beachfront rooms (some with hot tubs) comfy beds, quality amenities and fast internet, what more could you want?
Treat yourself to a romantic getaway at The Boardwalk Plaza!

First time in Rehoboth Beach and I'm so glad to we stayed at the Boardwalk Plaza. It was one of the most comfortable hotels I have ever stayed at, the beds were wonderful, sound of waves unbeatable and the service was fabulous. We called ahead to ask that room be cleaned with unscented cleansers since one in our group is scent sensitive. They went way beyond our expectations, they put linen on beds that were washed in unscented detergent, cleaned the room with unscented cleansers and aired room before we arrived. We were WOWED. The oceanfront room with two queen beds, sitting room and balcony was perfect for the three of us.
Only ate in the Pub, very good blue cheese burgers. Next time we will eat in Victorias. Can't wait to come back with more friends!

Room Tip: 3rd floor oceanfront room with balcony was perfect!
