This is the first time I've ever written a review. I'm a pretty laid-back person, but after my terrible experience with Summer Place, I had to write a review. First, the service is terrible. Making a reservation was so difficult-- I tried the online form, never got any confirm
The room was NASTY. I've travelled a lot, and have stayed in some pretty questionable place in rural India, Ecuador, etc. But this was just nasty.
First, the smell-- a combination of must, mold, and old cigarette smoke. The bedside table had a layer of dust so thick you could write your name in it. And then there were some sort of animal droppings (cockroach, I think, from my online searches) about a foot from the bed. GROSS.
We asked for a different room-- the 2nd room was slightly better, in that there were no visible animal droppings, but when I turned back the comforter, I saw multiple hairs on the pillow. That's nasty. That means the sheets haven't been changed since the last person stayed there. For $75 a night, I at least expect clean sheets.
And last, the service is awful. Even making the reservation was a pain-- the online form didn't work, and I had to call and speak to the guy at the hotel twice to make a reservation.
When we left the hotel and mentioned that the sheets hadn't been changed since there were HAIRS on the PILLOW, he responded "well, you really got to pick apart a room to find that." Not really. Just turn back the comforter. It's pretty hard to miss 4-5 long, dark hairs. His overall demeanor was uncaring and rude.
Go to the Oceanus Motel. It's $15 more and you get clean sheets and good service.

The summer place hotel is a very small modestly furnished guesthouse with VERY reasonable rates one block to the beach. Service is minimal but we try to accomate guests whenever possible but we cant please everyone. All rooms this weekend were booked and were going for 75 dollars, almost 25% of what they charge next door. All laundry comes from a service in packages pressed. Were sorry he found a hair on the sheet and was refunded his money.
