Reviewed February 27, 2013

I have to laugh at some of the reviews that state there was too much noise, party, drinking during spring break. Not sure what they expected during this time but oh well. We stayed here Feb 8th-10th and I have to say it was very pleasant. We stayed on the third floor so no problems as far as elevators, great view since all rooms are beachfront. This place has almost everything you need within walking distance and plenty to do with the two best clubs right next door. We stayed about 7 units from the end of the building where Spinnakers is located so not a problem with any noise, once you closed the porch doors it was fine. The owners were very good and the place was spotless. FYI, there are over 500 units in this building...your bound to have a couple of bad apples but don’t let that stop you from renting here, lots of fun if your not a fuddy duddy.

Room Tip: Find some private owners, they usually work with you on pricing. Dont rent on high floors during ho...

Best location in PCB. Unit 806 is newly renovated and has a direct view of the gulf. The California King mattress is similar to a Sheraton mattress and is very comfortable. The unit is updated and colorful, with a new flat screen tv, nice kitchen, laundry equipment, queen sleeper sofa, lots of bar stools, very quiet on the 8th floor. The best choice for the money. Try unit 806 at The Summit.

At the Summit, you have to do your homework on the units to get a good one. We have talked with serveral renters that got a dirty old unit. REVIEWERS ALWAYS PUT THE CONDO # ON THE REVIEW. We stay a month at a time and have stayed in two excellent units - 1115 & 507 - we also stayed in 626 and it was ok - and 828 was not ok. The beach and location are GREAT! BUT BEWARE - the local government has passed an - anti-visitor law - you can not leave your tent, umbrella, chairs out overnight - if you do - your stuff will be disposed of. So, you have to set up and tear down every day. The beach rental service supports this, of course. We would recommend units on the higher floors and units with lots of tile. Also, the Summit is party central for Spring Break - we would not go during that time. We have always rented through VRBO.

Room Tip: Don't go during Spring Break. Don't get a room with lots of carpet - it will smell. Do get...

My condo sucked. Outdated, cheap furniture and bedding. Funky bathroom. Despite a $75 cleaning fee that I paid, and which I assume the last guest paid, there were loose NAILS in the carpet -- several of them in the bedroom, along with some lock washers. I got lucky and stepped on the first nail as it lay on its side. Picking it up, I saw some others -- little gold nails about an inch long.

My friend stayed on a different floor and got a nice condo -- clean, well-maintained and comfortable, with washer and dryer. We washed our stuff in a grubby sink, but paid the same. It's just hit and miss with this place, and not worth the risk of getting one of the many bad units.

Also, they lost our reservation, then after an hour of them debating whether I had actually reserved a room or was perhaps confused by the internets, they finally found THEIR mistake and gave us keys to a unit that we walked into, to find another family sitting on the couch. The front desk people were nice enough, but I still felt screwed beyond belief, especially when I found that the $111 per night rate actually came to $170 per night after all of the BS fees they add to every reservation.

There are probably 500 condo buildings that look like this one in PCB -- try your luck at one of the other 499.

Room Tip: It's luck of the draw. You'll pay just as much for a nice suite as a really crappy one, and...

We stayed at the Summit and it was by far the worst experience of my life. There may be nice rooms there, but if you have any concerns for your safety you should not take a small chance on getting "the nice room". My husband was harrassed in the parking lot, I was stalked by drunk teenagers, my four year old cried at the loud music from the clubs next door that I could have thrown a rock at they were so close. Our windows vibrated at night from the music. Not a vacation, and plain and simple nightmare!! Oh and no money refunded, no assistance in moving, nothing! We forfited our money and went to another condo. I needed two days just to decompress from the Summitt! No VACATION!!

I stayed in unit 1224 during the first weekend of November, 2012. I would not recommend the Summit after having spent some time there. Our unit was pretty disgusting. The bathrooms were moldy. I wore my flip flops in the shower. The cabinets in the bathrooms and kitchen were water damaged and filthy. One of our beds had a huge dead bug in it. The unit was very outdated, and simply felt dirty. The decor is left over from the early eighties, and has a Golden Girls feel. The paint on the walls was chipping and falling off. Some friends stayed in another unit, which was nicer, but I still wouldnt give it high marks. We didn't use the pool, it didnt look too tempting either. This unit needs a serious overhaul, it should probably be gutted at this point. On a good note, the location was very good, and the beach views were excellent.

We spent 1 wk at the Summit courtesy of family. Our room was a very nice, clean and well equiped 2 bd/2bath suite. Balcony faced the gulf, but was directly next to 3 restaurants. That meant LOUD music on weekends until 3 AM:(.
The first several days of our stay found us shopping a lot because of rainy and windy weather. Although there are 2 pools and hottubs, we chose not to use them, and there is a workout room, game room and computer lab. We saw many families using all of the above but many unsupervised children.
Many great places to eat in the area as well as activities. We however, would NEVER go there during spring break!!! As large as the building is, can't imagine how they would keep it clean let alone maintain security with a large crowd.
We prefer a small, quaint, family environment.
