Had booked a room for a few days after seeing a very nice picture of one of the rooms online....such misrepresentation! Not sure if the room we saw the picture of really exists but when we got there the room we were shown was no better than something I would imagine in a flop house....Did get my deposit back less...

The summer place hotel is the last resonably priced ocean block guesthouse in the city of rehoboth. we are charging 2 to 3 hundred dollars less than the other full service hotels in the area. please dont expect the same level of service, amenities etc when you are paying so much less. the rooms are small and accomodate 2 maybe...

We booked and pre-paid for a 2 night trip. The day before we were to leave, I received an e-mail saying it was cancelled for no reason. I went back on the site, and I guess because the weather forecast was for great weather, they hiked the prices $62/night. We ended up staying somewhere else for the "higher" price, and... More

i am not sure who wrote this but approximately 5% of all reservations we receive dont go through as the credit card is declined. we never just cancel someones reservation. i am sure this is what happened in this case as we only hold reservations if the entire charge goes through. More

Booked last minute in July 2016 for $99. A queen room, small LCD TV, mini fridge and small microwave, with a smallish but useable bathroom. Room was passably clean. Window was open when we arrived, and it had been thunder storming, so the floor was soaked. Luckily they had placed a towel under the window to soak it up and... More

This place is a dump. It advertises free parking? Try again. There is no where to park. The lock on our door was busted, our futon couch was a pieced together, unsturdy thing that I think they made, and it smelled. And they don't even bring towels, you throw dirty towels in the floor and you get your own towels.... More

not sure how to respond to someone who thought they had to call the police to have a car moved on our property. we offer "free" city pass for parking on the street w/o meters for all guests and 15/day parking which is restricted access. this guest chose to not look for parking and was temporaily blocked in. she booked...

It's definitely nothing to write home about, but good location. My husband was so upset by the place that we ended up leaving. No refunds btw. I on the other hand am more tolerant and realize it's just a place to sleep while vacationing. Expect a small room. It's not as cleanly as other hotels, and walls are paper thin.... More

If you need a simple room at the beach, this is your place. There are three floors and honesty you will have flashbacks of your college dorm room. Room was tiny, bathroom okay. There was no hot water for the shower when we tried around 10am...guessing everyone else got it first? Word to the wise... bring your own pillows, they... More

The quick version of this review? I would strongly advise against even thinking about staying there. I have never been in a more disgusting place in my entire life. The longer version : Check-in and parking - First we tried to reserve via expedia for 2 nights and our ''card was declined'' (more on that later) So we called directly... More

The owner plays trombone, so obnoxiously loud and he can't even play that instrument. After asking him to stop, he rudly Responded no, and played for another hr. The sound is so loud that you can't here anything, and it is impossible to do any work or get any rest

The rates are reasonable considering the short distance to the beach. I found the rooms clean and the suites a good alternative if you want a more homey experience. This is a simple no frills hotel that doesn't pretend to be what it is not. It is unapologetic, but the character of the place grew on me!
