I read a few reviews on this hotel before booking and they weren't great so our expectations were pretty low from the get-go. The room and bathroom in the room we were given were clean and the bed - although way too big for the poorly laid out room - was actually very comfortable. If you just need a place... More

If you are reading these reviews its because you want to know more about this hotel. Don't do what I did and think "it can't be THAT bad"...it is!!! Listen to the reviews...Don't stay here - it is truly awful. The bed coverlet was filthy, the air conditioner noisy and ineffectual, the towels were threadbare, the bathroom hasn't been updated...

I should have known the cheapest place in town would be a dump and it is. For $185 a night and up you get a room with barely enough room to get into, let alone any place to sit besides the bed. The phone sits on the AC, the ceiling is failing down, the toilet is loose, the dresser has... More

Visually dirty/very worn towels. Mildew smell. The sheets itched? I don't know why. A/C sounded like a diesel engine & couldn't cool the room. The bed felt like gravel. Walls & doors can't possibly meet building Code. You can hear everyone in the hall and adjacent room. The smoke detector didn't work and sprinkler was rusted. The "free parking" was... More

The Summer Place Hotel is the epitome of "you get what you pay for". Overall, I was unsatisfied with my experience. It's dirty, impersonal, noisy, and unsafe to put it lightly. There were stains on the bed sheets, dirty engrossed within the bathroom, and dried food in the microwave. The walls are paper thin, making it more than easy to... More

My friends and I stayed at Summer Place Hotel over Memorial Day weekend. We had been to Rehoboth before, and didnt want to be far from the main area. The location is great, being only few blocks to the beach and to the main street. The hotel itself was small and you can hear your neighbors, but for the price... More

I gave this hotel all 5 because they did an excellent job on making their hotel the worse hotel and I do me the worse. Cleanliness there was old food in the cabinet and the dishes that was expected to be used was horrible. The location of my room was disgusting there was old rusted lawn furniture tucked out of...

We've stayed here before and always been pleased. It looks like some recent upgrades have been made and Dan has professional housekeeping done now. Close to the boardwalk, restaraunts and night life. We love this place! Thanks Dan

Booked this hotel through American Express Travel. I figured I was getting a great deal because it was the off season and I was booking a one night stay. I couldn't have been more wrong ; $7 would have been too much for this hole. We were greeted in the cluttered lobby and the clerk explained that they were "rearranging... More
