I stayed at the summit for my kids spring break. We booked our stay with Student Breaks. The staff was great!! The condo was very clean and decorated exactly how Florida should be!!! I highly recommend using Student Breaks!!!

I have stayed at the summit lots of times and after this time I have to say I'm spoiled now. Not having to deal with the elevators or stairs and the pool being steps out side my back door. :) Made more time for the sun and sand!! David the owner was a pleasure to deal with. I rented through... More

I have read some of the horror stories regarding this condo, and I can assure you we experienced NONE of the problems other have mentioned, with the exception of slow elevators, but we expected that. Everything was perfect in Room 1320 - the owners were extremely accommodating, everything was well stocked, and there was not a single maintenance issue that... More

Added a review I thought.... Don't stay here! Condo we rented was 811, it's updated but had so many other issues that's important to my husband and I. Rented from H2O property management and the lady assured me it was all I was looking for and more. I explained the nature of my trip and we were in our late... More

We stayed in room 811, the room was nice, it was clean and the view was awesome; however the bed was very squeaky appeared to be broken, maintenance just walked in after one knock didn't give us a chance to get to the door from back to front to install something in the refrigerator, the water gets cold quickly so...

I recently stayed at this hotel for my college spring break. I read the reviews ahead of time and was not sure if we would be happy at this property, but our stayed turned out to be wonderful! The way I understand it- each condo, or most of them/some of them, are owned by a family/individual, not the hotel. So... More

Thank you for taking the time and writing a review. Yes all the units at The Summit are individually owned and yes some are more updated than others.

It was a good stay at the summit hotel. But we gave them a notice before arriving, that we will be arriving early and they said that they put in the notice. The check in was fast enough. However, they kept us waiting for 4 hours till they gave us a room. The room was okay, not that bad.

Thank you for your review. During Spring Break we allow the guest to enter the property at 12pm with the understanding that the guest knows that check in does not begin until 4pm. With guest departing at 8am that morning we try our best to have most of the units cleaned by 12pm when the gates open but sometimes it... More

We went to summit last June 2014 and going back June 2015. The room was very cleaned except dryer didn't work, but that didn't ruin our vacation . So what if elevators were slow if you don't have the patience to wait take the stairs . We really enjoyed our week stay and looking forward another week this June 2015.... More

We went here for the party hotel with the best location. The location is the only thing going for this place. You can't bring anyone onto the property. We got a "penthouse" the walls were scratched up, dishwasher backs into the sink, shower is full of hair and turns into a bath. There's a washer/dryer but you can't get laundry... More

The apartments in this complex are fairly basic but were relatively clean and well maintained. Location wise it is based right in the middle of the busiest area. Overall, no major complaints with the property but there will be nicer places to stay in the area, I'm sure.
