When you rent a condo at the Summit understand they are individually owned by someone who probably never visits their condo.(theymay have bought it as an investment and don't do any updates)The front desk staff will let you view several units prior to selecting one if they are not totally booked. The roads are windy because you are going up... More

For the money this was a very good deal for a 3 night stay in the Gatlinburg area. It was like a small 2 bedroom apartment plus a loft area. The kitchenette area was very small but served it's purpose. These aren't the cleanest but sufficed. They aren't "new" but way cheaper than staying in a hotel. What we paid... More

We stayed in TAN room 3304 - 2 bedrooms with double beds and a loft with two twins, sleeps 8. My first concern was the lack of security - no TAN staff on site and we had a code to enter the room. Is it ever changed?? The stove was very tiny, same with the dishwasher. Iron was broken along... More

We have stayed here several times in the past two years. Building 2 and 3 do not have mountain views but all the others offer breathtaking views of the mountains. The staff is very helpful and the indoor and outdoor pools are super clean. You can't judge all units by what one or two say. Most condos rentals here are... More

Rented unit 4307 from Expedia. It is located about 3 miles up a mountain with hair pin turns, no guard rails and far away from the tourist areas. Once you leave, you will stay away for the day.When entering the front door we were met with dingy, stained rugs in hallway and stairs. Up 3 flights with no elevator. The... More

We were in building 8, room 8208. It has a beautiful view. We had great weather, and spent a lot of time in the pool, which is very nice. We also used the hot tubs, they were great, but the building needs some upgrading, but still nice. The grounds were very well kept. Our room was VERY clean. Had all... More

Recently spent a weekend in one of the studio w/loft condos . The place was really nice . Beds were really comfortable . Our only real complaint is the housekeeping . It appeared that they don't dust often , really messed with my cousin's allergies . I'll definitely be going back !!!

I saw the review dated Dec 2013 regarding room 3302 and unfortunately assumed that the room would have been fixed. No worse then ever. The thing that really gets me is that it wouldn't take much to make this space great!!! Carpeting in the master bedroom all stretched perfect for a tripping hazard. The dishwasher is a small size which... More

We rented our unit through the owner on VRBO - so our unity was top notch! Totally redone last year and updated. Loved that the unit had a fireplace, and the complex provides free firewood to use. The mountain road up to The Summit was a bit intimidating (we arrived at night), but once you got the way of it,... More

I have stayed at The Summit twice , once with some friends and we liked it so much we took our family back in June . The staff at the desk where very friendly and polite.
