Boardwalk Bliss A review of Boardwalk Plaza Hotel
On the boardwalk but just enough outside of the main drag zoo, the Boardwalk Plaza keeps you close to all beach activities while giving you a wonderfully quiet night's sleep. We stayed in an ocean front deluxe room and for once "deluxe" meant a true jacuzzi tub (more than enough room for two), king four poster bed with an oh-so-comfy pillowtop mattress, and two seater balcony facing the ocean from which we watched the dolphins swim by and the humans stroll or bike on the boardwalk. No nickel and dime-ing here... service was super friendly and accomodating with no charge for internet access for example. They even thoughtfully give you access to two changing rooms so you can check out on time, but still leave your car parked for the rest of the day while you enjoy the beach, shower and change for the drive home.
The only negatives: the beach is very narrow here and very crowded (much wider, deeper and sandier further South) and the room had a slightly off smell that made the ocean breezes very welcome to clear it out. Overall, the quality, comfort and personal service far outweighed the slight negatives.
