This, unfortunately, was the only place with a vacancy. No wonder. It smelled worse than an old wet basement. There was mold/mildew on one of the walls, as well as the front of the window AC. The couch had to be from 1970...I'd say the the bed/couch covers from the 70's as well. I didn't even get under the cover....

Room was a little pricey for what we got, smelled musty and old. But a close walk to the park. And we were barely in the room. Just to sleep. I would stay here again. They have lots of different options of room types. It was just me and my little boy so all we needed was 1 bed. But...

Summer Haven Resort has been our family vacation destination on and off for the past 22 years. From the moment our car pulls up to the office and we greet Faye and Ken, to the minute we leave, great memories abound. The motel is a throwback to a simpler time when the glass on the front door was clean and...

The place is a dump. Very OLD inside and out. Everything in the rooms looks like it came from a dumpster. They don't furnish anything. No towels, wash cloths, microwave, maid service, phones nothing. Nothing but the room itself. But the location is great and being right on the water is great and of course the price is good considering...

Summer Haven is a great place to stay for young and old. Faye and Ken Biddle are always friendly and accommodating. We have gone for seven years, grandma, grandpa, son and family, daughter and family. We look forward to it every year. Other family members come for the day or go to the campgrounds. It's close to the amusement park...

We have been visiting Summer Haven for almost 30 years. First with our 3 sons and now with our grandchildren. We stayed in a nice cozy 2 bedroom cottage with 1 bathroom and a kitchen living room area. The cottage was neat and clean, the beds were comfortable and the air conditioning was ice cold. Plenty of parking, fishing was...
