I wavered between rating the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel average and very good, but gave it a very good owing to the fact that most of the hotels in Rehoboth are probably pretty average at best. This is probably a cut above the norm. The location is nice, right on the boardwalk, though it does get pretty busy out front. But... More

This is a premier hotel in any location It is on the boardwalk close to everything. It is very clean and beautifully decorated we really enjoyed the swing on the pool deck. A great place to relax and people watch in the shade. The staff are so friendly and accommodating they make your stay so relaxing. They provide beach towels... More

This is a charming beach front hotel on the boardwalk in Rehoboth Beach Delaware. The Victorian decor is beautiful with many period antiques. Our ocean-view suite with two queen beds was roomy and comfortable. The staff was warm, friendly and couldn't be more helpful and accommodating, especially Concierge John. We found the Plaza online and what a find it was.... More

Earlier this year we stayed at Disney's Grand Floridian and were a bit disappointed, but our trip to Boardwalk Plaza Hotel showed us what that trip should have been. My 97 year old Grandma wanted to visit the ocean so we looked around for different hotels and chose the Boardwalk Plaza and I am SO PLEASED with that decision. We... More

We have stayed at the Brighton Suites, the Avenue Inn, the Henlopen, the Hotel Rehoboth... This is the most convenient hotel. The rooms are a good size and the very, very small pool becomes a hot tub every night after 8:00, which is a nice extra. But, that dark lobby with the weird birds? The desk staff is also odd,...

The Bdwlk Plaza is a lovely Victorian style hotel right on the beach. Enjoyed just walking around the lobby looking at all the vintage items such as the wall phones, mailboxes, (see photos), the mascots. The staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful, and the restaurant food was perfection. We were very happy we stayed there since the... More

This place exceeded expectations, worth the price, food was good, room was comfortable and very clean. The service was outstanding, one up on any of the corporate places. Will come again soon. It's located right on the boardwalk, easy walk down to the beach

Friendly staff with the exception of Nancy, the front desk manager, she is dramatic, unprofessional and shouldn't be at any customer service positions, she wasn't satisfied by up charging us while not authorized, she also talked down to us in a very disrespectful manner and major hostile attitude. She ruined our experience at the beach and we probably will never... More
