Been going to this place for years. Very friendly people and great location. Less than a block from the beach.

I stayed here this past February with my finance for Presidents day weekend. Found hotel on internet. Great location, nice staff and very pleasant stay. Right near the ocean. Rooms were on the small side and basic but overall clean and comfortable Took ratecard for coming back this summer. Much cheaper than other hotels on same block. Negative, no pool... More

I found this place online and reserved the room. My wife and I showed up to find our key tacked to the screen door. There was noone else staying in the hotel but they still put us up on the third floor---no elevators--- As we climbed the stairs we heard an alarm going off. Of course it was in the... More

Summer Place is the most dirty and disgusting place I have EVER stayed. It's very dark and dirty. The rooms were very small. The carpets are dirty and need to be upgraded. The television is a 13 inch sitting on top of a microwave a little refridgerator that had bugs inside of it. All these appliances are plugged into one... More

The old adage of “you get what you pay for” is true. The Summer Place may be inexpensive, but the owner makes you feel uninvited, at best. There is an air of woefulness to this place, to say nothing of the poorly maintained property, inadequate door locks, and dirty floors. It reminds me of an old college dormitory from the... More

First off, the picture on the internet is very old and misleading. The building is old, smelly and there is a forest of sunflowers and weeds growing by the front door. We spent three hours feeding the parking meter, then someone would stand in the spot while another person drove and drove and drove around the block looking for somewhere... More

I had last been to the Summer Place Hotel about 5 years ago so I knew it to be a basic, no frills place with a great 1-block from the beach location. I chose it again this year for a quick 1 - night juant to Rehoboth because I knew it had clean rooms with AC , mini-fridge and free... More

My friend and I made a last-minute mid-week overnight beach trip with our two 4 year olds. She had already booked the room for a cousin who wasn't able to make the trip. For our purposes, this was perfect. AND so cheap! Very short, pleasant walk to the beach and boardwalk, ditto for restaurants and shops. The room was small... More

It is not a hotel or motel -- it is a dumpster 2 blocks from the beach. Dirty, strong and creepy smell, hostile and either drunk or drugged owner, half-naked, threatening you not to walk near him. Half-naked, grabs your hand, and leads you to the back door, and through his smelly breath tells you to use that. You cannot... More

If you are looking for a great value just a block from the beach Summer Place is it. If you are use to upscale rooms with all the frills this is not the place for you. The rooms are small but who goes to the beach to stay in their rooms all day anyway? Our room was clean, had a... More
