Summer Place Hotel
Travel Blogs from Rehoboth Beach
With another year clicking over on Garry's life clock, he decided he would like a day trip to the coastal Atlantic city, where there are 12 gambling Casino's......not that we like to gamble , but rather, like to 'people watch'.
We set off early, and after a 50 minute journey travelling North on the Garden State Parkway, we arrived at Donald Trumps Plaza Hotel & Casino. The State ...
10'x15'... the past 5 years, 2 bedrooms and 4 floors of our home is now crammed into a one cinder-block cell, the mail has been stopped (doubt I'll miss it) and tenants who will be kindly paying our mortgage for the next 12months are now moved in and we're officially "homeless".
Bethany Beach is where we'll be calling home for the next few weeks, until we jump out on the road at the end of July.
I could think of worse places to lay-low for awhile.
... giving us access into 5 Historic private homes, all within a short distance. A wonderful way to see how the locals used to live in the Historic homes. Home for a happy hour on the back deck and a barbecue - a wonderful day.
Another clear sunny morning and we were off for a late breakfast- it seems everyone goes to breakfast on a Sunday morning, so quite a wait .....being refueled nicely it was ...
Next stop we headed further down the Jersey Shore to Wildwoods which has a goldcoast family holiday type feel to it. We stayed in a little motel right near the beach, although it was much warmer shorts weather it was still not swimming temperature yet. There were a few families staying in the town on holiday over the weekend but it was mainly teenagers everywhere, including our motel. We spent Sunday in Cape May, a small town ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Summer Place Hotel Rehoboth Beach
I made my first trip to rehoboth this year in June. I fell in love with the town.
Although well located in terms of beach access and ease of walking to restaurants and bars, this hotel should be avoided at all costs. It's in a discgraceful state - lacking cleanliness, order and basic standards of good housekeeping. The reception lacks any feeling of welcome and while in a bad state gives no real sense of warning for what's in store in the rooms. We'd booked a condo for two nights - the kitchen area looked like a health hazard and the fridge and cooker caked in dirt and grease. The general fabric of the accommodation was quite simple appalling. We'd have moved had it not been for the fact the town was packed and all other accommodation was booked up. We stuck it out - tho' I have to admit I was never so happy to leave a place.
I found the hotel on the internet and thought the photo looked nice, and the price was really nice. We arrived one hour before check in and were told "you are early." Of course it wasn't a problem because the place wasn't over booked. The room was at the end of a smelly hall way. The advertised fridge, microwave and tv were pathetic. I wouldn't put any food in the fridge or microwave, as both were dirty. The sheets were marginal, but the matress pad was stained and disgusting. Bathroom was not clean. The reality was nothing like the photo on the web site. What a disappointment. Its location was perfect, but it was more like staying in a seedy rooming house, complete with body odor, shabby furniture and no easy access to the outside if there was a fire. The desk clerk was curt and certainly not pleasant. It was a creepy experience.
Don't ever stay here
A very scary place to stay. Not clean, bugs, light bulbs not covered, barely made the nights stay. We also met a mother and daughter at the crack of dawn running away from their nights stay.
Never Again !!!!
I reserved A Summer Place based on their internet ad. Nice outside & nice interior picture. Upon arrival we were greeted by an envelope taped to the front desk with our name & room number on it. We proceeded to look for our room. We went through a narrow, dark hallway with 2 shelves overhead jammed full of pillows & blankets. If there would be a fire we would never get out. The room was tiny with a 9" TV, a microwave from the 70's, and a tub that was so dirty I would never step foot in it. This hotel is definitely misrepresented by the pictures in their ad. We did not stay there.
Late August and looking for a quick getaway before the start of another hectic school year, my cousin and I decide to take an impulse trip to Rehoboth Beach. Rehoboth is my all time favorite beach spot; there's no where else I'd rather be. I've stayed in numerous hotels, rented apartments, etc and usually take a few trips a year to Reho. For our late booking we didn't have too many options within our price range, which was around $100 per night. We found the Rehoboth Summer Place online and at $75 per night it was a steal! The website looked great and displayed rooms that appealed to us. The location was fantastic; one block from the boards and two streets over from Rehoboth Avenue. Convenience with location, plus a refundable deposit for a parking permit made the Summer Place great for a quick getaway.
Summerplace Hotel. Romantic: Best of the Best. Strongly recommended
I made a resevation at summerplace.
I was leary, as the rates were much less than the other hotels.
Was i surprised.
The location was only one block from the beach.
The rooms were not only emaculately clean but the had a microrwave, ref, phone, tv and private bath.
My girlfriend and i got to go to the beach and take a nap. No parking problems or driving problems.
No only was the owner friendly and helpful, but he helped us to get to a restaurant that didnt break our budget.
I strongly recommmed this hotel to all couples.
Best of the best
Best Bargain at the beach. Marvelous and clean.
I checked into the summerplace hotel last weekend.
What a marvelous establishment.
The staff was very friendly, the rooms, though not lavishly furnished, were immaculate.
The owner told us that the building is 99 years old but you would not believe it. The entire structure was rebuilt from top to bottom and tvs, ref, mw, ac, even phones were installed in what looks like a turn of the century building.
Location is perfect. One block from ocean. Dont here noise from beach at night but close enough to get back and forth within 2 minutes.
Highly recommended. Best bargain at the beach.
Ok...for college students
I was looking forward to having my first and only vacation this summer at the beach. I reserved Summer Place thinking that it couldn't be to bad for the price. Well, after almost losing a window to the sidewalk, hoping and praying that the frig would work for my food to keep, and hearing moans and groans and everything else through the paper thin walls we decided that we wouldn't get a room here no matter how much cheaper it was from any other hotel. Being right out of college I was use to the dorm room feel and that is what it felt like being there. Along with having a parking permit with no where to park it was ok for one night.
