On a whim we decided to head to the beach for the weekend. When our daughter was growing up we used to put up with Ocean City, MD. Now that she’s grown we hadn’t to OC in years….electing instead for the Caribbean for our beach fix. But we only had 2 days so we decided to check out Rehoboth and we were pleased to find the Boardwalk Hotel on the Trip Advisor site. I didn’t think a hotel this nice existed in Rehoboth. We booked a room on the 4th floor, their concierge floor, which doesn’t allow any kids. We were greeted by a very nice staff. Our room had 2 very comfortable beds and a separate small living room. Both rooms had TVs/DVD player. There was a tiny balcony with chairs and the delightful sound of the ocean.
The hotel was built in 1991 but everything looked brand new and very clean. My experience in Atlantic City, NJ and Ocean City, MD is that the property owners don’t reinvest in their properties and they become run-down. The owners of the Boardwalk clearly take pride in their property. They also take pride in the guest experience, for example they turn off the ice makers at night so the noise doesn’t interrupt the other guests. (You can still get ice at the restaurant or basement level.) The hotel is ornate and has lots of nice touches, definitely not the impersonal feel of a chain hotel.
The hotel is in a great location 2 blocks from town and right on the boardwalk and the beach. The room included an umbrella rental on the beach. The beach is spacious and nice. I just wish Rehoboth didn’t allow smoking on the beach. It was hard to find a spot where someone’s smoke wasn’t wafting our way. The restaurant offered pub food and a full scale restaurant menu. The restaurant manger was great and so was his staff. The food was also very good. You’d be hard pressed to find a better run hotel on the shore. We really enjoy the vibe of Rehoboth and this hotel. Can’t wait to go back.
