Reviewed July 26, 2010

Great Vacation, relaxing and fun... We've been going to this hotel for 18 years and have always had a great experience. It's very accomodating and comfortable. It's the perfect "home away from home" with a little extra. =)

We have no complaints at all and we are pretty picky. Boardwalk Plaza's location can't be beat. Our room was very clean and everything functioned as expected. Remember part of the price is definately location.

Just got back from a long weekend stay at the Boardwalk Plaza. I have stayed at this hotel numerous times in the past. Check-in as always quick and easy, friendly representatives. A bit pushy with the bell or valet service, which was not needed given that I was traveling light and had my son with me to manage the luggage. Because it is the season and didn't want to pay the high price for an ocean view/ocean front room, we stayed in a standard double room with a view of the air conditioning unit and parking lot. Clean room but not huge with a lot of wasted room in the entry way, perhaps could have been better designed given the bathroom. Toilet room absolutely tiny with no wiggle room. Not much clearance when opening the door with the toilet way too close. When using the shower, be careful with water temp since during the shower, suddenly without any adjustment, you might get blasted with extremely hot water. Was not a one time incident, happened with every shower. Ouch! Surprised also with this caliber of hotel, that bottles of water are not provided in the room. One other negative, bed pillows small and hard. Not good sleeping. Despite the few very small negatives, I would stay here again but of the convenient boardwalk location and the overall quality of the hotel. Prices are high but it is your choice whether to stay here.

The hotel itself was very nice. Great location and had a good restaurant. We had a room with 2 beds & a seperate living area. We could see the ocean from our side balcony. The only downfalls were...the size of the pool was a joke. I have seen hot tubs bigger than that and our room was a little funky...in a not so good way. We ended up using a 1/2 bottle of fabreeze. Even the lady who cleaned the room couldn't figure out what the odor was. We moved the furniture, got new linens but it kept coming back. By the time we noticed it we weren't about to change rooms since we had already unpacked & we had our son with us. We were only there from 3 days so we took our chances.

We got stuck on a "kids" floor where disrespectful guests let their kids run wild through the hallway at all hours of the day and night. Sleeping through that each night and morning was not possible. Management was unresponsive. Suites are extremely small with little ventilation and no A/C control. Showers blast hot water then cold intermittently so be careful with children. Location is great, but that is about it for $500 a night. Not worth it.

We rented a suite with an ocean view. We got the ocean view which was spectacular, but the suite was tiny. Have stayed in many hotel suites, and this was by far the smallest we ever stayed in. The bed linens and towels were very worn out. Considering the price we paid for our suite, the linens and towels should have been replaced. When I turned down the bed covers, discovered a blood stain and torn sheet. Totally unacceptable. The ice machine was broken, and upon checkout, we were unable to go to our car because the floors were being washed and it was roped off preventing us from getting to our vehicle. This was during the checkout hour, what were they thinking?
Would not return. Too expensive. Staff was friendly.
