    I liked where it was located because of the access to the beach. It had 2 pools so it was not over crowded. The Summit was a clean place to stay.

    I did not like that the Summit website did not mention a refundable (if left in good condition) $200 deposit and didn't mention the $90 clean up fee which was $96.00 with tax. I hated that we had to wear bracelets for the whole stay and if you lost the bracelet you had to pay $10.00. Other places around us did not make their guest wear bracelets. The thing that I really hated, if there were 4 people staying in the room that is all the wash rags you got. To get extra you had to turn in the used rags or towels and they would exchange them for the exact number, you could not get extra. The worst part of that, you could only exchange them between 9am to 11am only. Hello, most people are on vacation their not in the room between 9 and 11. So if we took a shower at night, we couldn't get a rag till 9am. When you first arrive there, you have to fill out a survey sheet and tell if anything was broken or holes in wall so you wouldn't be charged the $200 deposit. My opinion they should inspect the room after each renter and keep a record. After driving 10 hours or more, the last thing you want to do is inspect the room from ceiling to floor and maybe get charged for something you didn't do. Not a good set up at all.

  • Group of friends

    I like the location of it and easy to get to the beach and well security ji

  • Older travelers

    The condo was an excellant floorplan and the views from the balcony where to die for. The facilities were very well cared for and the location was in the mist of all the activities for Thunder Rally weekend.

  • Group of friends

    Condo was not clean and had, elevator and stairwells were filthy. The room itself had footprints on the walls. There was a slice of pizza on the sidewalk in front of the entrance to the hot tubs all weekend. It was disgusting.

  • Group of friends

    directly located on the beach

    they charged me twice, I had discussion because they couldnt find their charges on me. afterwards they charged an additional fee of $90 which wasn't stated before.
