“Very nice place for vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

This is a lovely hotel. The rooms are charming and well furnished. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Very nice amenities. The rooftop jacuzzi was great. The food in the restaurant was good. The heated pool is very small, so don't expect to use it for exercise. It was off-season (late March) and they are updating their A/C system so it can be noisy in the restaurant, but it should be finished before the high season. The fitness room was pretty good and kept clean. The weight machine and bike could be updated. The elliptical machines were in good shape. The hotel is right at the beach and boardwalk and walking distance to all of downtown Rehobeth.

Room Tip: ask for an ocean view, if available.

We had intended to stay two nights and ended up staying four based on the hotel, the boardwalk, and the restaurant. It's just a nice relaxed atmosphere, and it's the only hotel we've been to that is decorated with antiques more like a B&B. It is RIGHT on the boardwalk, so the location is great, and the restaurant is quite good. (See our review for Victoria's.) We got there early, and there were no rooms in the class I reserved that were ready, so they upgraded us for free. The room in March is an excellent deal. Parking is convenient and free. We would stay here again and hope to return some time soon.

Room Tip: The ocean view has a nice balcony; ocean front would put you right over the boardwalk. Ask what roo...

The Boardwalk Plaza is a wonderful place to visit. We went off season (early March), and although much of Rehoboth was not open, the Plaza Hotel was fully operating (except for its gift shop). Wonderful, friendly service, clean rooms, comfortable beds, nice linens, right on the beach. Can't beat it! Victoria's restaurant had delicious food.

This hotel is wonderful. The room is spotless - beautiful decor, fantastic mattress on the bed, lovely towels for the bath. We stayed on the fourth floor - which gave us access to the rooftop hottub. Wonderful. Loved the winter cozy weekend. The staff, especially Art and Victoria - were wonderful.

Room Tip: Get the Ocean front.

My friends and I got away from going to the Boarwalk for a few years due to the price, but went back this year and we are so glad we did. It was worth the extra cost for the great service, great pool and lovely brunch.

We stayed at the Boardwalk Plaza to attend a social event. The hotel is exceptionally clean. The food at the banquet and also for breakfast was excellent. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. We'd definitely stay here again.
