Amazing location, I knew it wouldn't be five star so I packed my sleeping bag and my own pillow! Room situation is set up like a dorm/nursing home/rehab facility! Didn't use the shower- 1 night stay! I could hear other guests in the hallway cursing- using Extremely vulgar language- at one point I found it humorous! It was an experience!

The reviews of this place SHOULD have been enough to scare me off but I was willing to give this "hotel" the benefit of the doubt as I know that people often only leave BAD reviews, so we went with low expectations but happy about the low price for being in Rehoboth on a weekend. Boy, were we wrong! We...

After reading all these reviews on the Summerplace hotel I strongly feel most of you should have stayed elsewhere. I recently stayed there and felt like it was an extremely great deal for staying so close to the beach. The manager/owner was not rude in anyway , instead he was honest and explained where to find parking.

Owner is rude, no customer service, misleading ad, room not worth the money, skanky place, room and bathroom too small and old. Hotel Hell needs to save this place or close it down. Parking is difficult.

The Summer Place Hotel is cute on the outside, but needs some TLC on the inside, but everything worked and it was two blocks from the beach. (It looks like the pictures on the web site, but many things need maintenance and a good cleaning.) We had an "apartment" on the ground level. Enjoyed the outside shower, and the proximity...

Our stay was terrible! DO NOT GO HERE!! Spend a little bit more money to stay anywhere else. The AC unit did not work; when we tried to get service to fix it, there was no one to be found. Even when we checked in, we had to ring the bell and wait for 15 minutes before anyone showed up....

first, if ac was broken, we changed in in 15 minutes per guests comment. but as to this guests comment that for a "little bit more money" you can get something better this close to beach needs some clarification. a little bit is 200 to 400 more per nite for free parking and "better service". this is the last family...

The manager (receptionist) was extremely rude. Could not find parking. Had to pay extra fee to park under the deck and was blocked in the entire week by other other cars.

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...

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.

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...
