This facility is like a retro beach house type setting, not like the "big Box" hotel scene. The balcony right off room 12 is fabulous! The owner, Dan, seemed like a nice fellow and not intrusive at all, All of the amenities worked ok. air conditioning was a life saver...cools the room down perfectly! The room was clean and the...

We arrived and it just looked terrible. Papers taped on the wall, smells like cats and smoke, bedding was dirty, floor was not seeped, damaged TV, and smallest 2 bedroom room. I would not reccommend this to anyone unless u want an awful hotel

My boyfriend and I booked a room last minute for a short 2 day beach trip. We didn't need anything fancy, just wanted a decent place to shower and sleep near the beach. Needless to say, recent reviews had us a bit nervous when we checked in. However, our room was not nearly as bad as other reviews. Yes, it... More

When we first arrived the person at the desk was miserable!!!!!! The room was small, it should have been a single bed room .. You couldn't watch TV in bed because you couldn't see it .. You pay $5.00 for the key and $10.00 for parking .. Then when you leave no one is there (even when you ring the... More

I've been vacationing in Rehoboth Beach since I was a child and over the past 40 years, I have literally stayed all around town, at various motels/hotels/inns, etc. This past weekend was my first time staying at Summer Place Hotel. Summer Place is FILTHY. The floor, bathroom, bedding and toilet were all dirty and either falling apart or in disrepair.... More

My husband and I love the beach however we prefer to not pay much for lodging since we don't spend a significant amount of time at our hotel and would rather put the money towards shopping and great food. With that said our hotel room was tiny but clean with hot water, a cold fridge, good air conditioning and a... More

4 out of 5 stars because it doesn't offer some of the amenities that the larger hotel chains have (room service, gym, pool, free parking). The room we booked was a tad on the small side but after meeting some of the other people staying there too, I saw some really nice condos with a living room and kitchen. There's... More

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...

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
