wet rugs and smelled like sewage

Room 20 had wet rugs and a strong odor of sewage. My boyfriend debated upon sleeping on the deck or in the car because he felt so nauseated, "I can taste it!" The hotel manager was not available during the night or morning, and we had no way to reach him. The next day we were thrilled to drop off our keys and take a "shower" in the ocean.

Tiny room, gross

If I knew the hotel and room beforehand, I would have saved some money and slept in my car instead. The location is good, but room is not clean, tiny, old and you can hear everything going on in the other rooms next to it. Would not recommend to anyone.

small room, back breaking bed

Perfect location. Smallest room known to man. Barely enough walking room around the bed and infront of the bed. The Bed just fit in the room with a tiny dresser and know other comfort room. The bed was terrible. First night my back was sore. Second night it was very noticebly sore. Third night i woke up several times thinking sleeping on the floor would be better... but there was not enough floor space for me to even to that. Insufficient Hot water as well. First 2 mornings i had a freezing cold shower. third morning it started out warm, got cold, warm again then cold. Room quality does not reflect what i would expect for $125 a night... If i had paid 75 a night that would have reflected what you get and i wouldn't be complaining. Plus it stated that cotts were available, but without any space to put one...why would they have that as a listed amenity? First floor smells musty/moldy... luckily we were on the second floor and didn't have to deal with that also.

No Room!

This hotel was miserable! I got a confirmation email for a room, but when I arrived they did not have a room for me. I had to go to another hotel to find a place to stay. Not to mention it was a dump....

A waste of money

I reserved a room, but when I got to the place they gave me the room key, we went to the room and someone's belongings were still in there. We went back down to say there was a mistake and the 14 year old maid who had been left in charge had no idea what to do because the owner was at a concert. So she put us in this small, cramped room that was by the side entrance. All night long we couldn't sleep because people were slamming the door shut at all hours of the night. The rooms were so tacky I felt like I was living back in an awful college dorm room. Do yourself a favor, spend a few extra bucks and get a better hotel.

Great location

The location of the hotel was great! Easy walk to the beach and boardwalk. The room was small and the walls were very thin so you could hear other guests but you get what you pay for! I will be coming back here again!

Summer Place in Rehoboth Beach - AVOID IT!!

I am appalled to think that Orbtz gave this dump 3 stars!!! Walking into the dimmly lit dank smelling "lobby" and talking with the creepy, mean-looking hotel manager was the first hint that this place was not for us. The room was clean but just big enough to fit the queensized bed, 2 night tables, a small wooden chair and a 4-drawer dresser. The bathroom was clean but the towels were at least 100 years old. I could clearly hear every conversation on the second floor when standing in the hallway and I could clearly hear every word of my neighbors conversation while watching the TV in our room. the lobby at night was scary and dark. We left before 8pm and went to a better place.

Buyer Beware!!!

The hotel management is unfriendly. Parking is difficult and he will only let park whoever he chooses. It is arbitrary, we don't know why some people can park in front of the hotel and some don't. He disappears for hours at a time and doesn't answer the phone. The rooms are small and cramped The AC barely works and the towels are more than a little scratchy and they don't look clean. The room also does not look very well clean. Enough said, it is a low price to stay in the area and a good location, very close to the beach.

Get what you pay for

Booked room right near center of town. Room was relatively inexpensive At $80 for the night so we took it. All i can say was that it was a place to crash for the night. Sheets and comforter were yellowed and room was run down. Needs maintenance every you look. Like i said . Get what ya pay for. Would not return there unless i was really stuck.
