Dated

Pros: Decent location. Not really close to the parks.
Cons: More feedback from the cleaning staff to the maintenance staff.
Location: Okay location. Lots of restaurants nearby and shopping.
The first room had a horrible smell. We asked for some spray to mask the smell but it didn't help. When we asked for a different room the staff were very helpful. It seemed like someone spilled lots of milk and it soured in the rug. Not fun at 12:30 am and all we wanted to do was sleep. It was the basic out of date hotel. Toilet leaked all week, shower pull was broken, dirty rug. I can always tell by the color of my socks how dirty the rug is. Another place where the price seems good and then they tack on the activity charge. Didn't use any of the activities. Breakfast was decent. Only had it once in the week. Not really sure how the ratings are figured out. Really not a 3 star place. Basically it was another room that could have been better with a little more caring staff. I get to this area a couple of times a year to visit my son and haven't found a decent priced hotel that I would return to. Probably will stay at one of the resort hotels in the future. They seem to take better care of their facilities.

Spring Break Vacation

Pros: Very nice and comfortable.
Location: Close to Disney, Universal, Gatorland and other parks.
Beautiful landscaping, pleasant and helpful employees and Condo was very nice. Insulation appears to be very poor as you can hear the guest next door and those on the level above. Fortunately, they were not guest that partied late into the morning hours. Access to restaurants, shopping and sightseeing activities were close. Would definitely consider staying here again.

Summer Bay

Simple, dated hotel. Very friendly staff, clean rooms. Reminded me of Motel 6. Room comfortable, safe hotel. A bit too far to the Disney/Universal area. Got it very cheap through Travelocity by bundling stay and plane tickets. Nothing to complain about, as I was expecting it to be simple.
