This was our first time to the mountains so of course we were really excited! All until we walked into the very dirty, strong cleaner smelling condo. This place was just gross! The floor probably has never been moped, and the bathrooms were sub par. The toilets barely flush if at all. The water pressure is very low at times,... More

The view was well worth the price. The room was very basic, nothing to write home about. The Staff was very helpful and friendly. And lastly try to arrive during the day. Arriving at night can be nerve wracking due to the lack of street lights while climbing the side of the mountain.

I was able to get a good price on this place, however, you get what you pay for. The place was run down and the furniture was very old. I found trash under beds and throughout the condo that was not our trash. Their idea of "cleaning" is a quick wipe down and spray some air freshener. We didn't even... More

I really enjoyed the views, and the amenities. The views were breathtaking. It could use a little dusting, and updating. My biggest complaint were the mice we endured. This may be acceptable for some, but my children & I were not use to that. I understand it's in the mountains, but it's a condo not a cabin.

It has been a while since we stayed at the summit. Our apartment was very nice, very homelike. You felt like you lived there. Our kids loved it, plan on the Grand kids going maybe next year but at least one trip by ourselves. Kitchen was nicely stocked with just the right amount of utensils. However we cannot speak for...

First of all, it's important to note that these condos are individually owned so obviously reviews will vary depending on which unit/owner you book. Our experience was wonderful. I read reviews for many of these units on the VRBO website, and found one with consistently high ratings. We got a fantastic price for a week (through VRBO) and were so... More

We were in 8102 on the 1st floor. The condo was nice and clean. The water heater is small, so take short showers. Everything else was fine. The views are awesome. Good price for a place to relax at night. That is the only time we were there. The ride up is steep!

We really liked the set up of the unit, obviously recently updated perhaps to water damage? I say this as there are two pictures hanging on the wall that have water damage and are moldy. Wifi here is very spotty, something that should be addressed when booking, I booked through Plan with a Tan. Nice indoor pool, friendly staff at... More

We stayed in a two bedroom condo during fall break. There were 6 of us and there was plenty of room. We stayed in building 8 and the view was breathtaking!! The condo was county decor, clean and the beds were comfy. It was quiet and peaceful. The outside pool was closed but there was an indoor heated pool, which... More

On the upside Summit of Gatlinburg is clean basic accomodations with good view of Ober Gatlinburg ski slope. On the downside if you are directionally challenged expect to get disoriented repeatedly as you come and go.GPS gets confused and therefore of little help. Management on site isn't congenial or of much help stating our unit was is not under their... More
