“Close to the Lift, If You Can Get Inside”
Reviewed February 21, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The Summit condos are are located near Mammoth's Eagle Lodge. The large complex stretches along the entire block. The buildings at the north end of the block are considerably closer to the lift. The buildings at the south end of the block is a 5-7 minute walk to the lift, although there is a shuttle bus stop nearby.

I believe The Summit 276 unit is in the building next to the far south building. The walk is really not a big deal unless you have kids in tow.

The condo is spacious and clean. There is a sliver of view of Dave's Run from the balcony. The hot tub and sauna are also visible from the balcony.

We had major issues with the unit. I would not recommend anyone booking The Summit 276 until the owner resolves at least the most significant problems.

Mammoth Reservations Bureau was attentive to the issues, but could only do so much to address them to our satisfaction.

When you arrive to a non-hotel lodging late at night, you trust that you'd be able to retrieve a key and enter the premises. The key waited for us at Mammoth Reservations Bureau, but it would not unlock the unit 276 front door.

After good ten minutes of unsuccessful attempts to unlock the door, we called the emergency number and reached a Reservations Bureau representative. He told us the lock trouble was a known issue and that the homeowners association was not in agreement that the lock should be replaced!

He offered to come over and unlock the door and added the lock requires a lot of “jiggling.” As we were about to hang up, we jiggled the lock some more and managed to unlock the door. Deduct 1 star.

The Reservations Bureau sent a handy man to spray the lock with WD-40 the next day but it didn't help. We were forced to keep the door unlocked while we were away skiing. I hardly doubt we were the first guests to experience the lock trouble. There was a locksmith magnet on the fridge left from stranded guests who had been there before us.

The handy man also reset the internal circuit breaker in the bedroom heater. I spent the first night shivering without heat in the main bedroom. Deduct 1 star.

The dishwasher was not emptied and we also found a broken glass inside. Deduct ½ star.

There was a 3/4” sharp nail sticking out of a floor molding by the refrigerator, just waiting to cut someone's bare foot and ruin a ski trip. We didn't notice this until the last day, but luckily no one got hurt. Deduct ½ star.

.... but I think it's time to find a different condo. Absolutely nothing has been upgraded; the carpet and couches are really dirty, the refrigerator and dishwasher need to be replaced. You finally did add some dishes (thank you.) This is our second "home". It's sad, but I think it's time to change. Yes, I would recommend this place to friends because we've stayed in worse places in Tahoe and Big Bear. It's TLC time. That's all.
