“A quick getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

My wife spent Friday night at the hotel. It is a great facility. Clean comfortable room with an ocean view. Had breakfast in the restuarant. Great service and quality of food at a reasonable price. The hotel is right on the boardwalk and within easy walking distance of many shops and restuarants.

First-time stay January 2014 for a much needed restful weekend. Pleasantly surprised to find that I never needed to leave the hotel. Wonderful restaurant and pub, and excellent room service. Every meal was delicious. At the pub had the beach burger - best burger ever!. During the entire stay staff was extremely helpful, courteous and friendly. Wonderful room with gorgeous ocean view. Nice and clean - it's the first thing I inspect - no worries there - immaculate. Also, it looked like people were thoroughly enjoying the indoor pool - maybe next time. Highly recommend Boardwalk Plaza if you're thinking of visiting Rehoboth. Even if only for the day, it'd be worth the trip to enjoy a delicious meal with an ocean view in the resplendent Victorian dining room or pub. The only thing better would be a stay during the summer with just steps to the beach and boardwalk. Five stars all around! ,

What an AMAZING place! From the moment I entered, I felt as if I had gone thru a time warp; not only in appearances and accommodations, but also with service. I have never before been treated with such hospitality and respect. Although we live a mere 30 minutes from the Plaza, I truly felt I was a million miles away; in an entirely different century. My husband and I were literally treated like royalty!

ACCOMODATIONS: Surperb!!!!!! The ocean front suite was sooo warm, welcoming, well furnished, and spacious. The view was PRICELESS. Comfortable beds, sofa, chairs. All the amenities of an UPSCALE hotel! The pool/spa was remarkable and a relaxing addition. Victoria's restaurant was outstanding. All of our meals were divine!

SERVICE: The concierge, Tom was a breath of fresh air and went over and beyond to make our stay enjoyable. Our waitress, Jennifer, the maître d, Bobbie, the barkeep Tim, the housekeeping staff, room service staff, and front desk staff were pleasant, courteous, and attentive. Everyone FAR EXCEEDED the definition of hospitable and honestly added to our experience.

Finally, the Plaza is the epitome of cleanliness!!!! It actually became my quest to find dirt, dust, stains, etc. (and I checked behind and under furniture, in the intricate wood moldings, on lamp shades, pictures, drapes, etc) NONE, NO WHERE TO BE FOUND!!!! Truly a breathtaking experience!

Room Tip: I truly can't think of any BAD rooms. Other than logically staying away from elevator and ice ma...

We spent another night at the Boardwalk Plaza, and again, enjoyed it very much. Our room was very clean, and ready as soon as we got there. Our view was to the southeast, not a direct ocean front room, but we still had a perfect view of the ocean and the beach. The Atlantic Sands next door was under construction, but it never bothered us a bit. Coffee maker in room with K-cups was a definite plus!

Room Tip: Even a ocean view room gives you great views of the ocean.

We went back to this hotel for the second time..the first was in Nov 2013. Accommodations, food and employees are exceptional. The concierge, Tom, was most helpful with a gift certificate my son called in for us. It is hard at this time of year to know how many people would be in for dinner. The waiter, Tim, was extremely busy and yet was courteous and kind to all tables. When he came to the table neither his demeanor nor his voice would ever let you know that he was busy. The food is delicious and seasoned perfectly. It is quite evident the chef takes pride in what goes out the door. The bartender, Mike, bellhop, Thomas, and all employees very friendly and helpful. A great experience. The mattresses were also very comfortable. We will return.

Room Tip: Ocean front with sitting area is very nice. Great view of ocean. When you stand on the balcony wat...

We stayed over New Years. Dinner at restaurant Victorias was EXCELLENT. Staff was one of the most friendly, happy and accommodating we have ever experienced. The facilities are lovely throughout. Can't wait to go back.

Thank you for ringing in 2014 with us! We are, indeed, a family-owned-and-operated property in the family sense...but we also consider our long-term staff and repeat guests part of the family, as well. We hope to see you again soon and that you'll become a part of that family, too. We wish you a very happy new year.

My wife and I needed a short getaway and booked a room at the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel for a couple of nights. The weather in January was cold and rainy but we thoroughly enjoyed our cozy time in our Ocean Front Suite overlooking the beach. The folks at the check-in desk made us feel like they were actually happy that we were staying with them! Versus some welcome desks which go through a perfunctory check in. We had excellent lunches at the hotel restaurant and would recommend it to anyone in the Rehobeth area. Good, diverse menu and cooked to perfection along with attentive, but not hovering, service. We paid a rate of $152/night versus what we were told would be a $500 plus a night rate in the summer. We weren't surprised due to the caliber of the room. All in all, an excellent place to stay. We will be back, but not in season.
