My only problem was the comfort cleanliness and value..I found fungicide and hair on the bed so I went down to ask for new sheets but the owner wakes up angrily and gets an attitude..I was happy at the location but not the hotel..I really don't mean to be nasty..If this would've been a bit better I would write a...

We were at this hotel in May 2013!!! Payed in advanced and at our credit card it showed twice the amount, they just booked it twice…..! I called, left a message and I tried to call back with the number they gave me, ...didn't get an answer… wrote two times, always got the letter back! Last month we were in... More

I was prepared for the worst after reading the other reviews of this place, but was overall very pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, simple, and comfortable. For $50 (YES, $50 for a private room 1 block from the beach in a resort town), it was much better than I expected. A double bed, refrigerator, dresser, and stall shower of... More

First off, I want you to know that I have spend many nights in cheap hotels and hostels throughout the country. I do not expect a five star hotel; all I expect is a clean bed to crash on at night. But this hotel sets a new record of nasty. We stayed in room B1, first floor, small kitchenette, one... More

This is the second time I have stayed at the Summer Place Hotel. My room was clean. Also, the appliances were clean. Dan was very friendly and helpful. This hotel is the most reasonable one you will find at the beach. It is in walking distance to the beach and Rehoboth Ave. I enjoyed my peaceful and relaxing time here.... More

I have stayed in some dumpy places before, but I knew they were going to be a dump and chose them because they were cheap. This hotel is completely misrepresented online. I specifically called and asked about photos I saw, "Does the room have a kitchenette? Does it have immediate access to the outside? And it has a bed and... More

I have never left a negative feedback in my life. I better be quiet than hurt somebody. However, this was too much. I stayed here two nights in July 2014 for which I paid a total of $399.60 – not cheap. The floor was filthy, the walls dirty, the bedding for the sofa was damped and smelled like urine, the... More

This is the worst place I ever stayed at on vacation. The cleanliness was awful: we found strands of hair in the refrigerator, sand in the provided ice bucket, and floors were not cleaned daily. Second of all this guy that worked there was rude: he gave me an attitude when I told him about the hair and then never... More

The owner must not care about the interiors. We don't mind a simple room with a bathroom. What bothered us is that the window would not close, the walls have bad patches, and the bed was uncomfortable. If you swing $50 more a night, try to find another place. This is similar to a hostel setting which appeal to some.

Decent place for the price. Have stayed here a few times. Convenient location. The rooms are small but clean. People have written negative reviews. If you want all the bells and whistles of having a pool etc find a hotel with one. This place works well for us as we really only shower and sleep here!
