“Hotel is a guesthouse in decline”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2011

Stayed there for a few days, based on many positive reviews.Am a frequent traveller to thailand.
The hotel is friendly for sure.Its clean. Its got a great location to bangla. But its not a hotel, its a guesthouse.But it charges like a hotel.1450 bt for a suite.
The rooms are SO SO old.Needs upgrading badly.
Bedding is 2nd rate.Barely guesthouse standard.
Its a bit noisy because its so close to bangla.
I checked out and into a guesthouse for 500bt.The guesthouse was much better at one third the price.
The summerbreeze suits young guys under 30yo who don't know any better.Poor value for money,

This was my third stay at Summer Breeze hotel and as always the service and accommodations were top notch. It is also situated in an ideal location, just steps from the major shopping center and the nightlife on Bangla Rd. The bar and dining area on the first floor is a great place to "hang out" with friends, make new friends, or just to sit and relax with a good book and a great cup of coffee or one of their awesome mango or banana shakes. The food is also terrific and the staff is very attentive. I highly reccommend the Summer Breeze Hotel and in me they have a customer for life.

Everything that’s been said about how truly epic this hotel is is true. The hotel is clean, free Wifi, the Food is excellent and the location is unbeatable. I have been coming to Patong for 10 years now and tried a number of different hotels in all price ranges but the Summer Breeze beats them all. The number one reason for this is the staff, from the crazy cleaners to the receptionist they are all exceptional. They are a credit to the hotel and the manager, they always have time for you and make you feel part of the family. If anyone is reading this wondering where to stay on their first visit to Patong I can with out doubt recommend this Hotel. The staff and Bill will look after you with a more personal touch than any £500 per night hotel ever would or could.

Room Tip: There is no lift so request a lower floor if this will be a problem, I found the rooms on the higher...

Hands down, this is one of the best hotels in Patong. I’m sure there are plenty of hotels that will charge you more money, but none is better. Bill and his staff go out of their way to make sure your trip is going well and your having fun. Originally my plans had me staying here only a couple of days, but as days turned into weeks Bill and his staff did everything they could to accommodate my changes. The rooms are clean, staff is great, prices are very reasonable, beer is cold and the hotel is located in the perfect location, quiet but still within walking distance from the nightlife.

Stay here, you can’t do better!

The hotel has its home feeling, the owner and his staff makes sure you feel as happy as you want, the rooms are very clean and big, I stayed in a suite which was great value for the money. The resturant downstairs offers great food with very good prices, the building doesnt have an elevator but it didnt seem as a big problem after the second night. The location is very good less than 5 minutes walk to Bangla road and the shopping mall.

Clean comfortable rooms, super friendly and accommodating staff, reasonable rates, and good food. Close to the nightlife and the beach. All my friends from Portland are staying there now. Make your reservations early because it's becoming very popular.

Weel, my third time in Patong and the second time in Summer Breeze. My only regret? I'd say not staying there the first 2 times.
The first 2 times I went to Patong I also had the (wrongful) idea that it's important to stay in this big resort full of amenities that in fact you almost don't use and/or enjoy. I had that idea from traveling often to the Caribe where you fully "live" in the resort. As to Patong... forget this "dogma". You live 95% of the time outside the hotel and the 5% of the time you're at the hotel all you need you get in Summer Breeze.
Clean rooms (in my case always waking up kinda late and still the patient housekeepers cleaned my suite everyday), enough snacks and drinks in the fridge (yes, a big fridge where you can also store your own stuff!!!), comfy bed, very organized suite as to air conditioned, fan and furniture display, free room safe, free wireless internet... I mean, not luxurious but the rooms are agreeable in all aspects.
As to the restaurant, EXCELLENT food. Either the fabulous Italian style "Spaghetti Al Fruti di Mare", from magnificent Thai food, to a great stake, it's very well cooked and the service is priceless. Also the breakfast (even at 3:00 pm, which was important for me!) is fabulous. Despite the pre-arranged menu, you simply can ask for what you wish at that time!
Enough with trivial issues as these and going to the most important feature at the Summer Breeze Hotel: It's staff! As said, other than staff they are more like family and good friends! Stayed there for a couple of weeks this time and still most of the people there still remembered me from last time (2 years ago!). Bill really is a great host and all people working there follow his path. You have genuine good relationship with them all and you simply don't want to leave! I had to postpone my return for another 4 days because i really didn't want ever to leave there.
This time I went and for sure later this year and the following times, I shall never even consider another hotel in Patong. I arrived to Portugal a few days ago and I can't wait to go back not only for the great place for holiday this beach is but also and in great part, to see my good friends again in Summer Breeze. I miss them already! See ya soon!

Room Tip: Summer Suite for sure!
