Summer Vacation Trap

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 30, 2014

Me, wife, and 6yr old son went to this place last summer. Let me tell you. Apartment was old and junky. Bedroom was a walk-in closet w/ tiny bed. A/C barely worked. Room was hot as...when we first arrived. The place was a dump. But it's vacay so tried to make the best of it. Manager/Owner was a jerk...no matter how nice and polite you'd be with him..very snide & short-mannered..completely inhospitable. Then for parking...you'd think as much money you pay that you could park on his property for free? Nah-nah, the guy is a rip-off artist charging $5-$10 per day, and even more Fri, Sat, Sun...worst of all, your parking spot wasn't even reserved despite paying. You move it, you lose it! WTF!!! STAY AWAY....STAY AWAY...please STAY AWAY. Better to not come at all than to come and stay here. I tell you the truth.

Unique Quality: Be sure to choose the room that's............ anywhere else except here!

Worst place to stay-Summer House Hotel

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 23, 2011

This is the WORST place to stay in all of Rehoboth. Only stay here if PRICE is the only thing you care about.

My 2 friends and I Pricelined (Priceline.com) this hotel on the day we needed to go and was due to arrive at 10PM. One friend asked if we should call ahead to let them know the time of our arrival. Glad we did, the owner said "I'll be in bed". He left the key in an envelope in a set area with the only info being the room number and side entrance 3rd floor. We walked around outside for 15 minutes checking the key in 3 different side doors until we walked back in and found a door saying STAIRS. We lugged our baggage up two narrow flights of stairs and found our room.

The room was DISGUSTING. The sheets were YELLOW-ish white with blood stains on them (washed but never came out). The room for 3 was a full with a single pushed next to it. There was no room and a huge 1970's TV sitting on the one dresser that you wouldn't put anything in anyway. The bathroom was small and we were unpleasantly suprised to find the towels were USED. You know how a towel gets crackly hard after it gets wet and then dries.....that's what the towels were. We went to turn the AC on and long lengths of hair were stuck in the vents.

This place was GROSS and we will never stay here again.

Why did we stay ? For 3 people, one night was $60 in a town where the average night of hotel is $200 in the offseason. How did we cope? We went out and got viciously drunk so we could endure the disgusting room for 5 hours until we left the next morning. We refused to shower in the room and instead waited until we checked into a real guest house with people that care about how their place looks.
