My husband and I stayed at the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel in a queen oceanfront room for a two-night getaway. This was our first visit to Rehoboth and we enjoyed it immensely.The hotel is in a great location right on the beach and boardwalk just a short walk from Rehoboth's main street which is full of shops and varied restaurant options. The hotel was very clean and we found the Victorian decor very pleasant and relaxing. The staff was always very friendly and accommodating. They served delicious cookies and hot apple cider in the lobby in the afternoons after check-in time which was a real treat. Our room was cozy and I'm glad we opted for an oceanfront room. We enjoyed the in-room jacuzzi, though it would have been nice if it were a tad bigger. They keep a stocked mini-fridge in the room from which you can purchase drinks and snacks. I would have preferred just an empty fridge to store our own drinks and snacks. I would suggest bringing a small cooler to cool your own drinks to save money -- there is an ice machine down the hall. Be aware that there is no microwave in the room if you are accustomed to having one when staying at a hotel. We only ate breakfast at the hotel, preferring to walk to local restaurants for lunch/dinner due to the price and selection at the hotel's restaurant. We ventured out a bit to visit Cape Henlopen State Park. It was a great place to find sea shells along the beach. You have to get up real early to beat the beach sweepers in Rehoboth if you want shells. We were pondering taking the ferry over to Cape May, but learned that the shuttle buses into downtown from the terminal were not operating this time of year. Overall, it is a great place for a couple to spend an off-season April weekend getaway. Not everything was open yet, but the weather was nice for strolling and it wasn't overly crowded. It was on the expensive side, but definitely worth it. I don't think there is any other hotel in the immediate area that can compare.
