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. We had a issue with our reservation being posted in the wrong month and it was fixed right away. The view was spectacular and... More

I would not recommend this place to anyone. We checked in late, the room wasn't very clean, Internet didn't work the entire stay. The men I assume are employees reeked of marijuana when we passed them and we're very vulgar loud and dirty looking. I assume that it was summit staff because of seeing them in the office. The manager... More

My husband, 2 Kids and I have stayed at the Summitt once before and stayed in an "OK" unit. We stayed in unit #8305 and was very pleasantly surprised. This was a studio with loft, and we LOVED it. It had a very mountainy feel, lots of bears on the walls and on the mantle. The beds were very comfortable... More

I never write a bad review but this place deserves one. It is on top of a mountain and is about 15 min from town on a very, very steep curvy road. The lobby person at check-in was not very pleasant. She acted like we disturbed her and it was a bother to give us our key. The room stunk... More
