"Flop house in a hurry"
While the manager really did try his best, it is difficult to manage rude and drunk people pounding on the front door to get in at 3:30 am. This continued until someone got up out of their bed and let the jerk in. The hotel is equivalent to staying in an old college dorm.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice proxility to Board Walk & Rehoboth Avenue"
Overall, comfortable, clean and very reasonable mid-week rate. Definitely "no frills" which can be good. Hotel is 1 block from the board walk and beach and two blocks to the main street. Pretty much, all attractions and facilities are within a convenient walking distance. Know that if a traveler is a late arrival, the keys are left in envelopes outside […] of the front office door (1st Street side). This info may not be on the website. It was not explained when a notification call was attemped. Phone calls to the office are not returned in a timely manner. The manager's cell can only be reached in an emergency and then only by leaving a voice mail. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A bit cramped, but okay."
The room was very tiny, but clean. Bed was comfortable. If you're looking for ambiance, look elsewhere. Owner comes off a bit brusque and unwelcoming at first, but seems to loosen up a bit when giving information about the area. Close proximity to beach and surrounding neighborhood nice and well kept.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"WORST "hotel" I have ever stayed. Stay away."
After reading the reviews I should have known what I was getting myself into. But I gave it the benefit of the doubt and I still give it a try to this hotel since the location was perfect. The rooms are very tiny, the bed is hard as a rock and very uncomfortable to sleep in, the bedding sheets look like do not get change often or at all. The AC barely […] works and the customer service is the worst I have ever encountered. Not to mention that the hotel is way overpriced for what it offers. My recommendation, stay away from this hotel. Previous reviews are 100% correct. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Experience a Beach Hotel from YESTERYEAR!!!!!!"
I really enjoyed the Hotel. It was like walking back in time to the Old Beach Houses of the 50s and 60s......I loved it..........It was Quaint, and just a great experience..... The Inn keeper was very friendly. This was my second time and I will definitely come back.I ts right by the beach and resturants.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice night at the beach"
Was great we could find a bed and room one block from the boardwalk for our last minute one night stay. A step above camping outGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simplicity at its finest"
The Summer Place is definitely for people who are looking for a place to sleep and shower and that's about it. This is exactly what my husband and I were looking for and the reviews were helpful in finding a reasonably priced, clean place to rest out heads at night. Everyone was very kind and helpful if we had questions or concerns. Parking was free […] if you parked on a non metered street which was also nice. Overall I enjoyed our stay at the Summer Place.

"Only for the young or those on a tight budget"
Definitely affordable and we picked it because of its proximity to the beach. Other than that, a bit too basic and rough around the edges for us Boomers. Paper thin walls and tiny shower. Our neighbors were not rowdy at all, but conversations could be heard as if we were all in the same room! Built in 1905 and only the most basic of upgrades have been […] done since then. Staff was very nice and rooms were cleaned well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"TERRIBLE!!!!! DO NOT STAY HERE!"
Absolutely horrble. No place to park, the owner did say hi or welcome - miserbale. Made us park in a tight spot with big jeep and we dented the front of it trying to fit! So worried about the car next to us hitting us because if they wanted to get out they definitely would have hit us! Couldnt find our room so when I came back down the stairs and told […] the owner we couldnt find it and asked if he could show me he said no! Who does that? Get into the room and its got stains on the wall, old bedding and furniture NO AIR CONDITIONER turned on after a hot day at the beach so we had to turn it on and wait for our room to get cool, AND there was NO HOT WATER. We couldn't take a shower. Absolutely ridiculous and when we told the owner he did say sorry for the inconvenience or anything. Thats not how you take care of customers, at least apologize. We wanted to leave right then and there after ALL that and he wouldnt give us a refund. No HOT WATER and no refund. Ill never go back and I warn everyone else NOT TO EVER GO!

Great place if you need somewhere to sleep and shower. This place has character. Don't expect a valet, room service, a bell hop, some one to carry your bags or an elevator. Great location for a great price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"if only price matters"
It's probably the best price for a hotel where you can walk to the beach, the boardwalks and shops. However, there is a difference between bare-bones, which can be fine, since you're out all day anyway, and poorly maintained bare bones, which this is. And...they don't go out of their way to be accommodating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient and reasonable rates"
The stay worked out fine. The room was very small, but was what we expected. The rates were reasonable and the owner was accomodating. The location was close to everything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"this place sucks!"
It was horrible. The rooms are the size of shoe boxes. This is not a family friendly place. Rooms were damp and the bathroom smelled like urine. The shower isn't big enough to turn around in let alone lather and rinse. The gentleman operating the front desk was the worst at explaining the parking details. Also parking permit must leave a $40 cash deposit […] at the front desk that is not listed on the website. however the sign on the room door said $35. Never again!

"Dont stay here"
You have to park 5 blocks away of pay meter parking. Hotel manager answers the front desk in his underwear. Dont bring kids here. This place is so sub-par, Hotels.com should remove this listingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
this is not a hotel but a boarding houseGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This place is a dump!!! Great location, but the rooms are tiny, poorly kept, and dirty feeling. Towels are dried on a line on the roof, outlets are burnt, floors sticky, stained. If you're looking for a youth hostel type place this will work, otherwise fork out the extra $$$ to have a clean safe room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is dirty and it was a worst hotel that I have ever stayed in my whole life. I'm surprised that they are still in business, room size is smaller than bathroom everything is dirty around and smells terrible, the owner or receptionist refused to upgrade our room give us a bigger one and at least cleaner one, but I think that all other rooms […] look and smell the same. It was a terrible experience. People don't go there it is worth it to pay more for clean and not a bathroom size room, witch is actually smells like a bathroom as well. We booked a hotel for three nights but after one night we run away and refunds are not available. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A simple stay for the buck..."
If you're looking for a place to keep your things and have a bed to sleep this place is good for the basics. It is not a luxury stay by any means. The location is great, near the boardwalk and beautiful beach houses. It's a small place but the manager keeps things pretty short and simple. I wish the shower I had there was warmer but other than that […] I can't complain. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One block from the beach!"
It is a basic no-frills place to sleep in order to be close to the beach. the deck is a nice place to eat and write. The off street parking was helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was the worst accommodation we ever stayed in this country. It's really substandard and virtually no room service provided. The place is very dirty , rooms are very small and the folding bed malfunctioned. The only positive thing about this place is a close proximity to the beach and food shopping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The worst hotel I ever stayed in"
This is by far the worst Hotel I have ever stayed in. It seemed like management as well as employees at the hotel really don't care about the guest that stay there. We had no hot water in the hotel for hours.. The baseboard of the bed fell off-the-wall. I went down to the front desk and no one really cared...if you read thisdo not stay at the Summer […] Place hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Summer of '42"
Sing with me: "There's a summer place..." A perfect little guest house. I loved it. It offered a clean, comfortable bed and a clean bathroom. That's all I need in a hotel. A block from the beach and two blocks from the main shopping/dining district. I'll be back. Definitely!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Summer Place Hotel is very utilitarian. There is a bed and there is a bathroom, albiet a very tiny shower stall. I brought my own sheets and bath towels after reading some of the comments. The washcloth the hotel provided was filthy to say the least and the towels were brittle. The room wasn't large enough to walk around in and if there are two […] fairly large guests, they aren't going to make it in this room. The majority of the parking in front of the hotel is by meters that run from 10:00 AM - Midnight...so bring plenty of quarters. The only good part of this hotel is the location...walking distance to the beach and some of the best restaurants. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"This "hotel" was the worst I've ever been to"
It was $270 to stay here since it was a Saturday night. Check in starts at 3. We arrived at 4:30-5 and there was no one at the front desk. There is a hand-written envelop with our keys and parking pass anyone could have came and took. We go to our small, DINGY room that smells funny and place our stuff on the uncomfortable bed that sinks in when we […] lay in it due to being so old and used. We see signs on computer paper taped to the doors and walls about no refunds and conserving energy. We have to move the car from the meter so we take our parking pass and have to find a non-metered place to park several blocks away. We walk back and I go in and he's finally there- shirtless and seemed either really sleep deprived or intoxicated. I ask about the rollaway we requested as there was three of us. He said hotels.com didn't charge me for it (they did) and he needed $10 (so i paid $20). Then has me pick a DIRTY AIR MATTRESS out of a pile of them i had to take up the steps and blow up myself...is that a roll away? I tried two of them and they both wouldn't stay inflated. It barely fit in the room. We just all three crammed in the bed. Earlier he asked for a $40 key and parking pass deposit in cash when i was getting the air mattress and i never went back down with it. One of the pillow cases even had a stain on it! The comforter felt awful and smelled funny. You could hear everything in the hallway and next door. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The cheery sunflowers growing around the exterior of A Summer's Place did not match the atmosphere of the room itself. The room was super small, the bed was advertised as king size but was not, and the A/C unit could not keep the room cool enough to sleep comfortably. The advertised coffee pot in room ended up being communal coffee pot in lobby. Room […] was clean and host was pleasant, but overall, this was a disappointment.

"NEVER STAY AT THIS HOTEL"
This hotel was the worse hotel I had ever stayed at and I'm a traveler. The front clerk was a very nasty man. Once I had checked in I was calling Hotels.com to find out if I could check out and get my money back. Plenty of violation. Of course I couldn't get back any of my money so I had to stay there for one night only. My mistake was that I didn't […] read any of the reviews because if I had I wouldn't have stayed there. So I'm writing this review because I don't want anyone else to waste there time or money on this hotel. Hotels.com should really reconsider even advertising this Hotel on there website.

"Not worth your money"
Very poor customer service and awful room. We arrived an hour before the check-in time but we went in to the front desk anyway. As we entered the hotel, the manager simply said he wasnt going to answer any questions until the check-in time and that he was stressed out! Very old and raggedy room. Sofa bed is unsleepable--we even had to prop it up with […] our small cooler. Parking is free street parking with a pass ($40 refundable deposit) or $15 on site but you could get blocked in. Not worth $210 that we paid...more like a $50 roadside motel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
When I pulled up to the hotel, the first thing I heard was women in their 50s screaming at me and my guests that it was not okay to park where we had parked, even though the hotel gave no instruction as to where we should park upon arrival. I walked into the lobby of the building to check in, and there was no one to be found. The owner was not present […] at the desk, and it took him upwards of 5 minutes to arrive in his underwear, nonetheless. He gave me the key and briefly explained where my room was. He informed me that because of a booking issue, my party was upgraded to an apartment style room. My party and I went to our room, and it took upwards of 10 minutes to unlock the broken doorknob on the door. What I had reserved was a room with one queen and one twin bed. What I was "upgraded" to was a double bed and a broken futon with exposed sharp metal that didn't lock in place. I would never come back to this place ever again. I think the only positive thing to come out of my stay at the Summerplace Hotel was it's close proximity to the beach. It's a 3 minute walk. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect For What It Is"
First the bad: when we arrived the top blanket (which you expect to remove anyway) was stained and both pillowcases had smears of what I hope was makeup on them. One of the smears was brown, so I really hope so. We exchanged them and one of the new ones had stains as well. There were also apparent mascara stains on one of the towels, and in the morning […] there were several little flies in the room. Also true: the phone doesn't work, but if you go downstairs the owner is readily available. Next the good: sheets and cover blanket were clean, bed was incredibly comfortable, minifridge and a TV with cable, WiFi, bathroom was good, street parking with refundable deposit for a pass (owner let us use the pass for the day even after we checked out), A/C took a while but then was good, the location is EXCELLENT. So just accept that you might have to do a little cleaning when you get there and it is a perfectly good place to crash while you spend your time on the beach (3 blocks) or strip (3 blocks away), I would go back. Again, the location is perfect. Considering how expensive the hotels in the area are (this one cost more than staying in some places in downtown DC) they could keep it cleaner, but compared to the other hotels in the area it is a real bargain, and you really don't want to drive 10 minutes back and forth from the Econolodge. <5 min walk to the beach, ~12min walk to Dogfish Head Brewpub. Not a fan of the no refund cancellation policy but it is understandable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Decent rooms, simple layout, best prices in Rehoboth.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
my girlfriend and I have stayed here twice now and we like it. We are very easy going and don't care about lots of amenities. If you need fancy and pampering this may not be your place. If you want a clean place to lay your head this is your place. We like the laid back nature of the hotel. One block from the beach and two from the rehoboth avenue so […] you can't beat it for the price. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Disgusting but great location"
I thought I had booked a standard room with two beds as the picture on hotels.com suggested but it was one standard bed. We had and extra person with us, so three altogether. So we rented a "cot" (air mattress) for $10 which deflated in the middle of the night. The hotel manager is really apathetic to guests. While the location is great, I wouldn't […] recommend booking this hotel unless it's the last hotel available in Rehoboth, which was the case for us. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Get what you pay for"
For $50/night a block away from the beach, you get what you pay for. There is no service. I picked my keys up in an envelope for my stay from an unattended front desk. Rooms kinda like a dorm room. Old, not super well conditioned, and not clean. Hairs on the towels. Top sheet showed signs of bed bugs, but the mattress looked new and clean. Bottom line: […] not clean, not friendly, but cheap and it's a place to stay close to the beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great beach overnighter!"
The hotel provided the essentials for a beach hotel and if you talk nicely to the owner he extends the same graciousness to you. I checked out at 11am and was given permission to keep the parking pass until later that day. Don't stay here if you have an inflated sense of entitlement because it is not a 5 star hotel nor does it pretend to be--only a […] 2 star which is all I need to pay for a night on the boardwalk and a couple of days at the beach. Thanks. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

This conditions of this property are so bad that my husband and I could not bring ourselves to stay. We had to eat the non-refundable nightly room rate. Expedia should take this property off of their site.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Delaware Short Getaway Post Workout"
Located just a few blocks from the main drag, this rather quaint hotel is just down the street from Jake Seafood Place and this hotel has just the basic amenities needed for a complete night's stay. The walls though were thin since I was able to hear the neighboring room, so I left the fan on from the bathroom to buffer out that neighborly noise.Genuine Expedia guest review

We stayed last weekend here at the Summer Place. I was weary after reading previous reviews on here but we were happy with our room.

"Spend a little more on something nice."
Upon check-in there was nobody at the front desk just a bunch of keys. Same thing upon check-out. Nothing seemed too clean and the hot water lasted for about five minutes. It just isn't a nice place, needs better management.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Summer Place was the most disgusting place we have ever stayed at!! Would never recommend it to anyone!!Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was fine and pretty much what I expected. When you pay the same price for two nights as you would pay for one night at any of the other local hotels you can't expect the same quality. The hotel is dated but it appears the owner is making attempts at updates but again when you only charge $70 a night I am sure funds aren't abundant to make […] these changes. If you are going for a few nights this hotel is fine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location, bad hotel"
The location was great in Rehoboth, near everything. The price was also great, probably as low as you'll get there. But the service was horrible, I didn't once see the manager since he was no where to be found. Almost felt like we were stranded there. Our room was not clean, towels felt like sandpaper and doorknobs and keys are so old, almost got locked […] out. Also, the hotel is loud and walls are paper thin. People were walking in and out of the hotel at all hours of the night and you could hear everything, doors slamming, loud talking and cursing. Maybe we just had bad neighbors, but it was loud.

"Great location but filthy rooms."
Summer Place.. hmmm where do I start. The location was perfect just a block off the beach and a few short blocks to the main drag in Rehoboth which made it convenient, but that is where the pros end. The hotel itself was more like an aged bed and breakfast minus the breakfast. The rates were overpriced the room was filthy with blood on the sheets and […] hairs all over the bathroom. The walls and carpet were both stained with dirt and the a/c unit was caked with dust. The hot water heater ran out within mins of the first shower.
