We stayed with our family (3 rooms) for 3 nights and the hotel is just lovely and the staff is overwhelmingly friendly and helpful! The location cannot be beat . However, I think the term Pool is a misnomer.......this is a spa. Getting more than 5 people in the "pool" seemed a bit crowded when it's children who think it's... More

Went for the wife's 30th B-Day weekend. Ocean front was a non-negotiable for us. This hotel had the best reviews for an ocean front property close to the action. Service was outstanding. They were very nice and brought us some cheese and champagne to help us celebrate! They have a changing room that you can use if you get there... More

The location is fantastic. It's not easy to find a good spot on the beach, so we were excited to try this hotel out. Having the hotel this close to the beach really helped for us. When our kids needed to go to the bathroom, we had the hotel bathroom available. This was way better than in the past when... More

The people were great. The staff at the desk were very friendly and our room was nice. We did not use the pool even though we had kids as they played on the beach all day. The restaurant was average at best. We only had breakfast there but the servers were not efficient or helpful and did not really know... More

A relaxing and wonderful experience! A friend and I, both teachers, just wanted to get away to someplace warm and fun without the hassle of a tourist destination, Rehoboth Beach while it is a summer getaway place is at a different pace than other shore communities. The Boardwalk Plaza Hotel was just the place for us to get away! While... More

I had a quick getaway and made last minute reservations through a booking group. It turned out that the reservation failed to go through although I received a confirmation. When I got to the hotel, the hotel said that I didn't have a room, but the gentleman bent over backwards to make arrangements for me to stay. I got an... More

This beautiful hotel was located was located on the Boardwalk only steps from the beach and featured a great restaurant for both breakfasts and dinners. The decor was definitely Victorian with many original antiques as well as some charming, quirky items such as several pet birds who interacted with the guests. Our room was delightful and well equipped. I highly... More

We arrived really late to check in on Sunday night. The front desk was quick and efficient since we were exhausted. The bell hop walked to our car with us, showed us a great place to park and took our bags from the car right to our room. On our first full day after hitting the beautiful beaches we went... More

We had a lovely vacation at Boardwalk Plaza Hotel! The staff were so patient and kind when I changed the date of our arrival one hundred times. This is the cleanest hotel I have ever stayed at on the beach! The pool was comfortable and the people working at the pool were helpful and inviting. I can't wait to get... More
