We stayed at Summer Bay resorts Las Vegas March 19 - 24. We own a timeshare there, and from what I understand, the old buildings are being torn down and replaced with new units. That's a good thing. The room wasn't that bad, but it wasn't all that nice either. We weren't looking for a five-star resort, we were looking for a place to sleep for a few hours after staying out all night. :)
My husband and I were travelling with a couple who have a 1-year-old. (P.S. don't bring your baby to Vegas! haha) Summer Bay staff provided a crib for him when we asked with no hassle. In fact, it was waiting for us when we got there late at night. It wasn't a nice crib, but the kid didn't seem to mind it. :) I did find a dead cockroach in the bathroom, but I wasn't too creeped out by it. It would have been worse if I had found it alive! Other than that bug, the room was clean and comfortably cool.
As we discovered, it was pretty creepy to walk back to our room late at night, because it is off the strip. We never had any problems though. I didn't think it was too far from the strip. You could access the monorail via a special elevator that was just for Summer Bay resort guests. Also walking through the Imperial Palace was a quick way to get to the strip. Or else walking to Bally's worked too. Given the amount of walking you do there, what's another block or so to get to your hotel. :)
The concierge named Carrie (or something like that?) was super nice and gave us lots of ideas for shows to see and got us discounted tickets for a great show at the Imperial Palace. The people working at the resort were very nice and treated us like old friends.
Above all, we had a great time in Vegas and the staff was very accommodating for us. Obviously the rooms need a bit of work, but from the pictures I've seen, the new ones are going to be just awesome. We're going back in March 2009.
