“Best Anniversary Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

The Boardwalk Plaza was a wonderful vacation - from the moment the door was opened as we approached the door to the seamless checkout at the end- everything was taken care of by a great staff. The pink cottage next door was set up for coffee service every morning which was so nice. With their porch swing in front with the ocean view it felt like you were renting a summer home. The restaurant catered to all our requests and the room attendants listened when we didn't want the bed spread put out every day. The 4th floor was superb and the roof level view of the ocean was wonderful as we watchd dolphins swim one afternoon. The hot tub was to hot for me so I didn't go in . Only problem for 5 days was we could not use the indoor pool as the pump was broken but not anything we could do about it. Both my husband and I really enjoyed the vacation and we hope to return next year.

We really enjoyed our stay at boardwalk plaza. The concierge Tom.. Fantastic. Room clean. We had no view but we were on the boardwalk. People very friendly. Pool is indoor/outdoor. I did not use. We went in sept and I had to rent umbrella... $12. Just love Rehoboth. Room soundproof!

Room Tip: Ask to see the rooftop. It is $20 more or goes with people on 4th floor. For adults only and beaut...

The quiet end of the board walk but still accessible to everything in walking distance. Staff were above and beyond friendly, graceful, polite, accommodating, and helpful. The fact that there were times for adults to use spa pool without children and it was accessible all night was a huge plus and very exciting for us! (5 children!!) Also, the fourth floor and roof top is something that we will be back for! Tom (concierge) gave us an opportunity to visit the roof top- he and the staff are an asset to your hotel. An amazing getaway for us!!!!! Thank you!!!

This is probably the nicest oceanfront hotel in Rehoboth Beach. It's done in a Victorian style, from the very eager serving staff to the room decor to the pictures of Queen Victoria adorning the walls of the restaurant, which is aptly named Victoria's. It all has a bit of a theatrical feel to it; like walking onto the set of Miss Marple. Personally, I prefer a more modern hotel, but it's clear that there is a loyal clientel to whom the Victorian theme appeals.

The hotel is located right on the beach overlooking the boardwalk. Our room was a two-room suite, with sitting area (with balcony overlooking the ocean) and separate bedroom. The rooms were moderately sized. The beds were firm and comfortable and there was free wifi, though it could be slow at times. There was a television in each room offering a large selection of channels, though no premium or pay-per view movies.

We ate breakfast at Victoria's restaurant one morning and unfortunately found it to be sub-par. The potatoes were cold, the eggs under done and the portions rather small. Our kids didn't bother finishing their meals, which is highly unusual for them. Fortunately, there are a good many other places to eat in close proximity.

On the whole, I would recommend this hotel for those staying in Rehoboth, mainly for the location. At $500+ a night for suites during the summer season, it isn't cheap. There are other cheaper options nearby, but not directly on the beach.

We needed to attend a wedding in Rehoboth over the Labor Day weekend. Rehoboth beach was very crowded but this hotel made the entire weekend remarkable. They have the most unbelievably comfortable beds and pillows. We have stayed at five diamond, five star hotels that didn't have near the comfortable beds as the Boardwalk! It is pricey, but worth every penny!

Room Tip: Oceanfront rooms with the Jacuzzi tub right in the bedroom is awesome. The view from the balcony is...

This property has one of the best locations in Rehoboth Beach. The staff is extremely courteous and very accommodating. The rooms are VERY clean and beautifully decorated. It feels as if you are spending the night in your favorite and very wealthy aunt's house.
