Summerfield Suites

Date(s) of Stay:

November 1998

Location:

Lake Buena Vista

Ease of WDW Park Access:

We went by car to Downtown Disney/Pleasure Island area. Basically just across the street and down a little bit. VERY close and easy to get to the resort area. We had already done the parks when we stayed here so I can't say about access to them but I have to assume it's easy. You would just go on further into the resort area.

Accommodation Used:

2 Bedroom Trio Suite (Sleeps 8)

Accommodations Review:

First of all the place is VERY clean! Also pretty new looking. There are 3 floors and believe me if you are on the 3rd floor as we were with suitcases it is tough! There are stairs and all the entrances are on the outside. One bedroom has a king size bed and it's own bathroom. Also a TV and telephone in there. There is a safe near the bathroom area which is where you can hang clothes and they have one of those suitcase racks. The other bedroom has 2 double beds and it's own bathroom and TV and phone. The decor is really nice and modern looking. The living room has a couch (I don't know if it pulls out although if the room sleeps 8 it must) and a chair. There is a small little entertainment center with a TV that is bolted down. No way to easily hook up our 8mm camcorder to watch tape from that day. There is also a VCR. Behind the living room is the kitchen which has everything you need. Microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, dishes, etc. There is a little table with a couple chairs to sit and eat at too. We found it all kinda cramped together but not bad.

Rate/Night (for your stay):

Well we won 2 free nights off their website but I believe the rate is about $159 although they do run specials frequently.

# of Restaurants/Lounges:

Not really any restaurants per se. They have a little deli/snack store that you can buy some food at and sit at some tables they have set up inside.

Restaurant/Lounge Review:

N/A

Activities/Facilities Available:

Pool, Hot Tub, Exercise Room, Laundry Room, convenience store/deli/gift shop in one

Pool Description/Comments:

Nice sized pool in the courtyard, hot tub, kiddie pool,

Amenities Provided:

Nice towels, shampoo provided, cable TV, mostly non smoking rooms, iron/board, movie rentals, voicemail on phone, free schedule shuttle (we didn't use it), in room safe, complimentary newspaper at your door in am, free continental breakfast, area restaurant delivery (they had a brochure of area places with menus you can order from and they deliver it for a fee)

Other Comments:

I want to comment on their continental breakfast. They serve this inside the main building across from the gift shop, etc. You have a little note on your refrigerator of what is served each day of the week although it doesn't differ much. Basically muffins, cereal, bagels, fruit, beverages, pastries. You can order a Belgian waffle or an omelet (nice sized both) for around $2 or so, I can't remember. Worth it to get this. You can either eat inside or they have tables in the courtyard on the other side of the pool to sit outside, some are shaded some not. Overall we were really happy at this place. Even though we got it for free we felt it would be a nice place to stay maybe for one of their special rates. I don't like paying $159 a night! The location is excellent for the parks that's for sure!
