Two couples have been staying at this hotel for the past 10 yrs. or more when we visit Rehoboth outlets. We do our Christmas shopping and then relax at this well run, friendly and well cared for hotel. It makes the shopping trip more like a vacation.

With Tim at the front desk and Luke as helper, we were treated like family. We have always stayed at the "angled" side rooms and thoroughly enjoy our partial view. The hotel is right on the boardwalk, so we can see all the ocean view when we walk outside.

Thank you for the 5-star review! We strive to earn 5 stars in every category, and we are always glad to see that reflected on TripAdvisor. As you mentioned, downtown Rehoboth Beach as well as the nearby Tanger Outlet Center make for terrific, sales-tax-free holiday shopping. Thank you for choosing us as your spot to relax and be pampered before-and-after your shopping trips. On your next visit, please be sure to talk to our Concierge or the front desk -- we often have coupon books for the Outlets as well as notices of local sales and discounts available downtown.

Again, many thanks for making us your go-to hotel.

My Mom and I have been coming to this wonderful hotel for 20 years now...The rooms are absolutely gorgeous !! We would not even consider staying anywhere else !! Not only is the ocean front view fabulous...the people that work at the hotel are fabulous as well !! From Tom & Pamela at the front desk, to Ennis that lugs all our stuff, to Tom, the concierge and who could forget Peanut & Emmy !! They are all just like family and we can't wait until next year to do it all again !! We miss you guys already and look forward to seeing you all again !!

Spontaneous trip to Rehoboth for warm fall weekend. Family of two adults, 1child. Splurged on Ocean Front suite after looking at 'Ocean View' suite (a sad distant look angled from side) and truly great view. Suite well laid out as far as having beds in front so sitting room has the windows with ocean/views so kiddos in bed we can enjoy sound of surf once they're in bed. Furnishings dated (think Grandma's matchy-matchy sets with old shag carpeting) but clean and functional. I have to say a big complaint is that this room has a nice balcony that we had hoped to enjoy tonight but there are two very bright lights out there that the hotel controls (to light up hotel I guess so it has a presence) that not only put us on display had we sat out but they are so bright they obscure what could have been a pretty view out to the night-time ocean. It also meant we needed to close curtain as it lots up interior. The front desk people first said they'd be off at 9pm-and at 10pm (tho oddly admitting city requires them out at 8!) promised timer really really would go by 10:30.
In house restaurant was nice for lunch. There's a stash of toys for kids anyone can use. The pool is tiny and kind of creepy looking - hoping our little one doesn't ask to use!

Access to beach is great! Hotel doesn't provide beach towels - or chairs so glad we'd brought our own.

We love to hear about spontaneous trips to enjoy Rehoboth Beach any time, and we're happy that you chose the Boardwalk Plaza for your getaway weekend! We appreciate your staying with us, as well as your comments.

We were sorry to hear that the lights disturbed your enjoyment of the balcony. (They are, in fact, scheduled to go off at 9:30 p.m. (although they are not required by the City to go out at any time, and I apologize for that piece of misinformation.) It is possible that if you stayed during the time-change weekend they were reprogrammed too early or late to accommodate for the clocks being turned back.) Our intention is for the lights to provide a beautiful glow for guests returning on the boardwalk at night, but it is not our intention to disturb guests on the balconies, and we apologize that that was the case.

Again, our thanks for your comments. We will keep working to improve the hotel based on your remarks! We were glad to hear that you enjoyed the property overall, and hope to host you for another oceanfront getaway in the future.


*For potential guests reading this, a few clarifications. Please take note that the "pool" is indeed quite small -- rather a large hot tub. During the day, it is a heated soaking pool (safe for kids and they do enjoy it); at night after 8:00 p.m., it becomes adults-only and the jets are activated. Also, we do offer complimentary beach towels; in-season they are provided at a beach towel check-out desk and they are available upon request at the front desk year 'round.

My husband and I enjoyed our return to the Boardwalk Plaza to spend two autumn days at the beach. The hotel was wonderful, as usual. We were surprised and then delighted to find that Rehoboth was celebrating its Seawitch fest, complete with a parade of Hallowe'en costumed dogs. All very good natured family fun. One small grain of misunderstanding on check in concerning a misquote about the room's price was straightened out to our complete satisfaction by Timothy. We recommend the Board Plaza for an easy, nearby getaway from Washington, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. To leave the hotel's door and be right on the Atlantic? Nothing better!

Thank you for staying with us, and for taking the time to review it! We love hearing about a perfect weekend and are happy to have been a factor in yours. Isn't the Sea Witch Weekend Festival great? The Rehoboth Beach - Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce is responsible for the entire event, and many volunteers work very hard to make it happen. (We especially love that the Pet Parade goes right past the hotel for our guests to enjoy.) Make plans now to return for next year's festival -- planned to be bigger and better than ever!

Happy November...we look forward to hosting you again, soon!

This is our second visit to this hotel (Oct. 8-11/2013) during an Atlantic Coast storm and we welcomed the opportunity to enjoy the amazing sights of sky, waves and winds from the safety of our comfortable ocean front suite. Although we find this hotel a bit pricey, we think it is well maintained, the staff is kind and helpful and rooms are clean and quiet. The food in the restaurant is excellent and we felt restored after this mini-vacation. Wish we had been able to get out and walk about more this visit - but then again - there is much to be said for quiet time to read, to talk, to write a bit (we're both writers) and spend special time together, as well as to notice the amazing power of nature. So yes. We will return. We think the Victorian decorations work well in this setting and love the grumpy parrots. I think it is particularly important to notice the staff loyally works well together and they feel like family. This hotel is owned by a family rather than a large indifferent corporation and I believe they provide an important business to the Rehoboth community. It is different. It costs a bit more. It's worth it. Go and enjoy it. If you're looking for cheap and quick and indifferent - this is not your kind of hotel. Go during the off season and enjoy it all for less (and fewer children) it you really want quiet time.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay with us. We were glad to hear that the clouds had a silver lining during your stay, and that you left feeling relaxed and restored. We do have guests who come specifically when storms and nor'easters are predicted, just to see the fierce beauty of the wind and waves! We agree that the beach is beautiful all seasons and in any weather.

Thank you, also, for the kind words about our family business. Not only are we family owned-and-operated, but we consider many of our staff and guests as "extended family" as well. We hope to meet you on your next visit, in sunshine or in rain. Until then, have a wonderful fall season!
