“Great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

This was our final hotel before we headed back to Bangkok. It was a great place to stay, the staff were so friendly. Probably my favourite hotel from our entire trip. Initially we thought it a bit pricey, but the rooms are so big and clean that it's ultimately worth it. It has a nice view over the back street section, unfortunately not an ocean view but the beach is just down the road. The person whom I assume was the manager there, at reception, was really helpful. She went out of her way to make sure that previous travel bookings were in place and we really appreciated it! The location is great as there's a restaurant on the beach just down the road as well as several bars and such up the road.

Stayed December 2013, traveled with friends

Cheaper hotel but very good quality, great size room, clean and comfortable. No restaurant but lots of places to eat close by. The beach is less than 100 metres away and is easy to access. The hotel can arrange tours, bike hire, airport transfers and laundry. Amm, the manager was a great help whilst we were stopping there.

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms would be better but ours was on third floor and was good.

Located 20 meters from the beach in the center of lamai, this is a very reasonably priced room. Rooms are large with a very large bathroom with shower and tub. The hostess and other staff are very friendly too. It's simple but large, clean and very cheap. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in lamai beach.

Stayed there one night last week. The evening we checked in there was a huge blackout but the hotel managed it well. I really enjoyed my stay. The location is great, close to everything. The room is clean and nice, great value for the price!

I have always said that service makes or breaks your stay at any hotel, regardless of the price. The Summer Inn is a perfect example, from the start the staff were friendly, quickly sorting out our room as she could she we were all very tired. Not to mention the free coffee and fruit in the lobby while we waited for the rooms.

The rooms themselves were clean and very spacious, nice big bed and a big bathroom. The rooms could use a table to sit at or a few more chairs, but that is minor. The WiFi signal was great and we got a pretty good constant speed the entire stay, which is a first.

Location is excellent if you are looking a cheap hotel close to the beach. It's probably only a 2 minute walk to Lamai beach in one direction and a 4 minute walk to some pretty good restaurants in the other.

The nightlife was a bit dead in this area, so the reception told us to head to the Arkbar in Chaweng, a very popular spot after the full moon party. She was going to get her boyfriend to drive us, but there were six of us. No matter, it's the thought that counts. She also helped us with our individual travel plans, our group was splitting up, some were staying on the island, others to Krabi and I was heading to Phuket. So, that was extremely helpful and the prices were really good too. 650baht to Phuket from the hotel.

I was impressed by this hotel and if I am ever in Lamai beach again, I would stay here.
