“Nice Hotel - 31/2 Stars”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

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 hotel is a great vacation property on the ocean and boardwalk.The staff at the hotel are so sincere and genuine that you think that you are up in Vermont at a family bed and breakfast except on the ocean. the victorian hotel is exquisite in personality and tranquility the restaurant is the best in Rehoboth area and no rushing you out for the table .I was with my family of five and we loved it if you want a five star atmosphere and food the hotel is great service unmatched . i will be back every year for years to come. on the boardwalk with shops and arcades for the kids

Room Tip: ocean view suites very large room view and ocean sound will make you sleep in tranquility

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.

the service is wonderful - the rooms are classic and tasteful - the birds are delightful.... this place is the best! hard to get a reservations but it you have a special event, this is the place! and the restaurant is stellar! i can't say enough about this place! it's a bit on the pricey side for a beach get-away but you get what you pay for! the pool is tiny but why bother when you have a whole ocean steps away!

Reminds me of a hotel from a "Gone by Era". It was quiet and has an elegant atmosphere that includes many antiques throughout the property. The Boardwalk Plaza Hotel is in a great location on the beach with a short walk to restaurants and shops. Our well appointed room was on the second floor with a balcony and ocean view. It would probably be better to request a higher floor but not a big deal. Bed extremely comfortable with plenty of pillows. The room had plenty of amenities like a Keurig coffee maker, hair dryer, safe, refrigerator, toiletries kit and morning paper. I would stay here again and highly recommend the hotel for couples. Though there were families staying at the hotel, I feel it is not kid friendly because it has a tiny pool and not much else hat would keep them entertained.

Room Tip: Request higher floor in ocean view rooms.

We enjoyed our stay at the Boardwalk Plaza Hotel. My wife, daughter & I had a nice looking and very clean room with 2 double beds. The bathroom was large. The staff was VERY friendly and accommodating. The only down side to the room was a slight odor, which after a couple of minutes you didn't notice, but that they couldn't eliminate. It did not bother us enough to ask for a room change and it did not stop us from enjoying our room or from wanting to go back there. We loved being able to hop out of the hotel and being right on the beach
