I came here 20 years ago when my children were small and this hotel had just opened. Then, it was a novelty - Victoriana on the beach, parrots in the lobby. You could tumble out the door and be on the beach. Now, it just looks VERY tired. The decor hasn't changed; worse it doesn't look as though it's been... More

Not worth the money. The staff at the front desk was snooty. I felt that it was our pleasure to be a guest at this hotel. The rooms were clean and the hotel was nice but there was nothing they had to offer worth the cost of each room. There are other places on the boardwalk for a lot less.... More

We went here for a girls' weekend and stayed on the concierge level. The attentive staff took great care of us all! They were friendly, informative and there when you needed them. The rooms are a decent size and clean. Comfy beds. The bathroom is a little on the small side, but adequate. Very nicely stocked mini bar if needed.... More

My husband and I decided to go to the boardwalk and check to see if they had any rooms available, and they did!!! so we promply moved to... More

We stayed at this lovely Victorian Hotel for 4 days and it was very enjoyable. We had an oceanfront suite which was very comfortable as it had the quaint victorian furnishings, but all the modern amenties including 2 flat screen TV's, Internet, perfect view of the Ocean and Boardwalk, etc. If you go, stay on the Concierge floor---it is well...

We have been coming here for almost 15 years. Usually stay as a couple in a king on the concierge level. Over the years we have enjoyed the pleasant staff. Hotel is unfailingly clean and the beds are comfy. However some things are stale like the poor wifi signal that barely works or the poster beds that are too high... More

If your answer to this question is yes or if you have an unlimited budget, then Boardwalk Plaza is a good choice. I was more impressed after renovations several years ago, but the rooms are still clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. Though it's small, the indoor/outdoor pool is a very nice amenity. For couples, the rooftop Jacuzzi is a must! Other... More

Boardwalk Plaza is a lovely 40s-style hotel with ocean front rooms, some of which are suites. There is a 4th floor Concierge level for adults only. A small pub, a Victorian restaurant with some outdoor seating, a pool/hot tub with rules for adults only after 8pm. Staff is attentive, eager to please and available. It's wonderful to wake to the...

This was a nice hotel, but not for a family. The decor is very aclectic, and different. Although, it is steps away from the beach and on the boardwalk. Great Location. The rooms were very clean, and fresh. 2nd Nicest hotel in Rehoboth. Just, this is not the sort of place for a family on a budget. We stayed in... More
