This hotel is extremely consistent w its Victorian theme. Very attractive entrance to a beautiful flower filled lobby. Photographs and pictures abound on the lobby walls, almost unnoticed due to the very tasteful period furnishings throughout. Very attentive and informed staff. Bring your camera! Celebrated our 35th anniversary in a beautiful double double on the 4th floor. Very tasteful decorating... More

We took our 2 daughters, ages 6 and 9, for an overnight to Rehoboth. My husband was in town on business, so our stay was covered by his company....bonus! The hotel staff was wonderful and the girls loved the birds throughout the hotel. The parrot in the lobby can do tricks and talks up a storm! Our only negative was... More

We spent 3 lovely days and nights at the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel the week of October 10th. The room was beautifully appointed, with every convenience and amenity. The staff are exceptional, attentive, and friendly. The hotel restaurant has first class service and the best meal we had in Rehoboth. It will be our hotel of choice in the future.

Our room was a suite on the fourth floor directly facing the ocean - what an outstanding view! The restaurant was charming with excellent food, the pub was comfy and cozy, the staff was more... More

This hotel was wonderful. It is classic, steps from the ocean, and good food - although the crab cakes (which tasted good) were a bit underdone. The beds are wonderful and the rooms are very quiet. Inspite of the rain, we had a very nice time and a very restful weekend at this hotel. Thank you!

Stayed at the Boardwalk Plaza over Labor Day weekend. While the place was obviously busy, the staff never made us feel rushed. From the front-desk to the restaurant staff to housekeeping, everyone was just lovely and willing to help. The building is an old Victorian that sits at the north end of the busy section of the boardwalk - directly... More

You will not be disappointed with the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel. It is the best of Rehoboth Beach and puts its next door neighbor to shame in terms of customer service, cleanliness, and overall value.

I just spent two nights at the Boardwalk Plaza and it was fantastic! The location cannot be beat for access to beach, boardwalk and the Avenue( the main shopping street). I expected the quaint Victorian charm and decor, but the OUTSTANDING service is what made a difference for me. Front desk staff, valets, housekeeping, bartenders and waitstaff all treated us... More
