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.
