"Visit to Fallingwater"
Charming old hotel. Great staff and service. Food was poor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Food, view, and value."
My wife and I were here, overnight, for a professional meeting at Nemacolin. Having stayed at Nemacolin on several occasions, we decided to try something different by staying at Summit Inn for the night. I was attracted by the history, the price, the view, and their dining menu. As I anticipated, accommodations within the room were sparse, but the bed/mattress […] and pillows were comfortable for a great night's sleep and I saved more than $200/night - even more, considering breakfast was included. In fact, I was particularly attracted to the Summit menu. And, sure enough, my wife and I enjoyed dinner and breakfast at Summit Inn more than our previous dining at Nemacolin. Bread pudding french toast with link sausage for breakfast was especially good. On leaving, I stopped to gaze over the valley below. It was really breathtaking. For that reason, make it a point to have a room looking to the pool side for the valley view from your window. For the value, Summit Inn is excellent. Be prepared to sacrifice the luxury you could have "up the road" for two and a half times the cost. We would room at Summit Inn for a short stay, again. It served our needs and was quite pleasant.

"Great Fall Foilage viewing"
Great Ambiance! Two beautiful stone fireplaces; one in the dining room and the other in the lobby were a delight! Enjoying my glass of wine at each of these locations and also while walking and touring the facility! Keep in mind that this is a very old establishment, with limited bathroom space; although sink was quite large.. Suggested improvements; […] floor mirror and hair dryer in the bathroom. I will definitely return would love to visit in the warmer weather to part take in golf and swim in outdoor pool. In door pool was warm and refreshing! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stayed for two nights"
We stayed at the Historic Summit Inn as we were visiting Falling Water and Ohiopyle State Park. We loved the scenery from our room, the large wood burning fireplaces in the dining room and the hall, the sunset from the patio, the nearby hiking opportunities. Service was outstanding. We had a lovely stay, thank you!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Labor Day at the Summit"
Fabulous ! Great location with dynamic vistsa. Wonderful indoor & outdoor areas. The tree house was so much fun. Breakfast & golf were included in our package for a very reasonable price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great view on this clear day"
Off the menu breakfast included. Fresh crab and super tasty tomatoes on the caprese salad. Enjoyed the guided walk to the treehouse from the tv show. The hotel is well maintained and feels authentic to the era. Friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was just perfect. The atmosphere of the hotel was wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Long Awatied Experience"
My husband and I truly enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Summit Inn. The staff were all courteous and helpful. The food was wonderful and the free breakfast included Crabby Eggs Benedict that was scrumptious!! We got to see a marvelous sunset and thoroughly enjoyed our "Sunset Martini" before dinner! We also got a free tour by Jeremiah of the famous Tree […] House. Truly unique. A real plus to staying here is the easy access to the many diverse activities in the area - Laurel Caverns. Ohiopyle, Kristian Klay winery, the Stone House Inn & Tavern and the Lady Luck Casino. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to all must-see sights"
I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel is elegant and much nicer than its photos' portray. The bed and pillow are quite comfortable. The breakfast eggs are superb. My son ordered filet mignon for dinner and ate every morsel on his plate which is highly unusual for him. He also read all the history the hotel displayed around the lobby and desired to spend […] another day at the hotel in order to just enjoy the place. He is 25. We traveled specifically to tour Fallingwater and added on a day of whitewater rafting. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice view, but otherwise ordinary"
Beyond the view this is a fairly ordinary older hotel. Up sides include view, breakfast was included (have the bread pudding French toast). Down sides included gruff front desk staff, old and outdated room finishings, no in-room coffee maker or wifi. It worked for the one night we were there, though I don't think I would book it again if staying more […] than one night. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming and historic"
Beautiful lobby with lots of history. Loved the tour of the treehouse. We ate all of our meals at the restaurant in the hotel and everything was great. Staff was kind of hit or miss. Some were helpful and friendly. Others acted like we were bothering them. Overall a very nice trip and very good location if you plan to visit Fallingwater and Kentuck […] Knob.

"Historic hotel at the top of the hill"
An historic old hotel on the top of a hill, in an historic area. Fort Necessity, the site of one of George Washington's first battles, is nearby, as is "Fallingwater'--Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece. The hotel is charming and comfortable, with a huge front porch (where you can have dinner or drinks on most nights) overlooking the valley. We plan to […] stop there everytime we traverse Route 40. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Falling Water"
We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Falling Water which we were going to see. The hotel's location is great. The scenary and view of the valley are wonderful. For it's age, the hotel has been well cared for. Breakfast (the only meal we had at the hotel) was great. The staff were friendly and very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful view from the rocking chairs!"
Hotel was wonderful. Wish there were more electrical outlets that were accessible in the room. Our bed was not the best. However the room was clean, staff very friendly and delicious food. The view is amazing!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Hotel with a History"
The hotel was charming and the service was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Romantic Anniversary Getaway"
We stayed three nights, and explored Ohiopyle State Park and surrounding scenery. Glad that breakfast was served until 11am, as we slept in. Was always a joy to return to the hotel each night. While the inn is "historic", everything worked fine, and improvements are imminent, such as a new outdoor pool and hot tub. We were surprised that small dogs […] were welcomed -- they fit right in and were not intrusive in any way. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Centrally located to attractions"
Staff was rude. They gave us a room that was dank with no view. When we complained they gave us a better room. The restaurant was overpriced for what they served. All in all not the greatest experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Generally disappointing; dismal dinner"
This is a lovely old hotel with a beautiful view and charming atmosphere. However, it's a bit worn around the edges, and I would describe the staff as diffident, brusque, and hardly welcoming. I had reserved a room with two double beds on Expedia, but we were directed to a room with one king. The desk person claimed that Expedia doesn't communicate […] room types. However, it never occurred to her to inquire what we wanted, even though I'm a woman in her sixties traveling with a teenage son. We were able to change rooms, which was doubly fortunate because the original one smelled of mold. Our biggest complaint, though, concerned the food, which was hideously overpriced and compared unfavorably with a meal at Cracker Barrel. The vinaigrette on my salad was clearly bottled and so gelatinous that it formed blobs. A chicken pot pie consisted of chewy, odd tasting chicken swimming in a pasty sauce atop a rubbery piece of pastry. I suspected that both it and the green beans with my son's steak had been frozen. The blackberry cobbler was also an odd gelatinous consistency. Had it actually *been* Cracker Barrel, I would have just written the experience off as a bad meal, but the cost of dinner for two people (with a glass of unappealing wine) came to almost 90 dollars. For that much money, I would have hoped for what was, at least, decent comfort food. In the end, we left most of our meal on our plates, but the waitress never inquired as to why.

Tremendous Bed and Breakfast. The building is awesome with unbelievable views and an Arts and Crafts style lobby that really really cool. Food was great. Try this place, seriously. It is undervalued! We will be back!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Top of the Hill"
The lobby and our upstairs room were everything we expected. Our second room downstairs was not as spacious nor as clean. There was a musty smell and the the furniture in the room was awkwardly placed. Highly recommend requesting an upstairs room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"great sunsets on the veranda"
We enjoyed our stay in this historic hotel. It is not a lavish place but it is clean. The staff is very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, would love to try in the winter."
We really enjoyed our stay. It was a very unique atmosphere with beautiful views. Very charming with lots of wood work and large fireplaces. I didn't think this was clear when I purchased my trip, but breakfast is included which was a sit down restaurant with very good food. The dinner was also very good (not included).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great views, great staff, great food."
After a hot sticky drive, the breeze on the porch was welcome. There is no elevator, but when staff saw me dragging my bag, they immediately offered to change my room to a first floor location. Everyone was very friendly and dinner on the veranda was amazing for value, taste and view. Huge portions---come hungary. Included package Breakfast was anything […] off the extensive menu and was also great. Eggs Benedict. Only 25 minute easy drive to Fallingwater. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A Trip Back In Time"
Staying at this hotel was like taking a trip back in time. The appearance and furnishings made it feel as if I walked into the place as it was back in the early 1900's. The staff were awesome and the overall experience was great! Our only disappointment was with the internet service. The hotel amenities listed that internet was available, but I was […] disappointed to find out that it was available in the lobby only, not in the guest rooms. I would definitely stay there again!

A decent old hotel. Common spaces nice in an "old-fashioned" way. Rooms adequate. Included breakfast acceptable. Priced appropriately. Only complaints: a bit musty smelling. And terrible tv reception, especially at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great classy old hotel"
Very near to Fallingwater and lots of other outdoor activities. Grand old hotel with lovely staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed at The Summit Inn over a holiday weekend. It was a last minute trip we planned with out of town friends. The Inn was very welcoming and the food was wonderful. The entire staff was friendly and helpful, even though it was a holiday weekend with a wedding being held there , they took the time to answer questions and give suggestions about the […] area and it's attractions. My only suggestion would be to take some time to update the guest bathrooms although they were very clean they were outdated. We enjoyed our stay and will most likely return.

"Amazing experience; great deal"
Be prepared for smaller rooms and older furnishings in bath because this is a building on historical registry. But everything else is up to date and fab. Staff very friendly. Ask for the historical tour. Two pools. Golf course. Views to knock your socks off. We will come back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It's an old hotel from another era, it has it's charms there is room for improvement in the comfort of the beds, and quit needs more modern ac units. That being said it's not a bad place for a short stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Summit Hotel still retains the charm of a Hotel built just after the 1900's. The view from the outdoor dining area was fabulous and the food & service were first rate. I will definitely stay there again. My thanks to all the staff for an enjoyable stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
I will return as soon as possible. The staff went above & beyond basic services. The food alone was worth the 5 hour drive. Our room was spotless, the view incredible, one could stay in the pool until turned into a prune. The ambiance was peaceful, relaxing, and in total contrast to the "cookie cutter" modern hotels. Totally therapeutic for the stressed. […] Many points of interest and activities in the area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Indy 500 Weekend!"
This hotel is so centrally located and easy to get to off the interstate. It is in the heart of downtown...within walking distance to everything. The beds were dreamy. Due to the busy weekend and all the festivities it was a bit loud from street noise-partying and motorcycles all night long. The air-conditioner in our room was also extremely load and […] it was a very hot weekend. The other complaint would be that on our side of the hotel one of the two elevators was out of order for the entire weekend!!! That created long waits for the remaining elevators. Overall we had a great stay and trip! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very convenient to Laurel Caverns & Falling Water"
The hotel staff were all very warm, friendly, and helpful. The included breakfast was very good (you order off of a good-sized menu, as opposed to the usual buffet.) The room was clean but a bit cramped, especially the bathrooms. However, the location is very close to Laurel Caverns and we would certainly stay there again in the future!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One of a kind hotel experience"
Beautiful location for an historical hotel. Like stepping back to a time past. Hotel is renovated with all the modern conveniences you would expect while maintaining its original architecture reminicent of Tiffany lamps, Frank Loyd Wright, Stickley furniture, Loved our stay and plan to come back.Genuine Expedia guest review
beautiful historic hotel set in the rolling hills , an amazing breakfast was included. Sweeping views off the porches and balconies. Cozy Fireplaces, Great work out room. Indoor pool was musty and in damp basement. Nice trails for a morning walk. 15 minutes from Frank Lloyd Wrights Falling Waters .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Second time was also a charm!"
Due to needing to change our plans in light of the rain, we stopped prior to check in time to see what recommendations staff would have for indoor things to do. We were allowed to check in early and were actually given a larger room with a view than we had originally been assigned. We were also given a local travel magazine with a map. How welcoming […] and putting the (repeat) customer first! It is very likely that we will return again and find that the third time will also be a charm! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
all things continue well at the summit in just get that big noisy tv out of the charming lobby, it ruins the whole ambiance connected with the summit, come on folks theres tv in your rooms, don't need one in such a lovely old world atmosphereGenuine Expedia guest review

"Nice hotel in the Laurel Highlands"
Stayed at The Historic Summit Inn for 2 nights this fall, very nice,although the room was old looking it was very comfortable and charming. The lobby was a great place to hang out and relax.

"All around perfect!"
Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. A bit chilly the evening that we arrived and the beautiful stone fireplace with rocking chairs and lounging couch was just what we needed after a long drive. The ambiance of this period hotel was lovely with its grand stair way. It was like stepping back in time. Also, had dinner at the restaurant. Highly recommend […] their homemade chicken pot pie and spaghetti and meatballs. Service great and staff efficient. I would highly recommend The Summit and recommend to others. And...don't forget to bring your bathing suit for the grand size indoor, heated pool!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fun to stay in an old historic hotel such as this"
Being a senior, I can recall having traveled this road many years ago and seeing this beautiful hotel on top of the mountain, what fun to finally stay there, even though I was not able to do so in it's prime. Comfortable room, poor lighting, wonderful breakfast and the best possible view as we had, with an appearance of a rainbow as we looked at the […] incredible view below. Give it a try!

"Quiet, relaxing night."
My wife and I stayed at the Summit Inn for our one year anniversary. It was very nice and I would definitely go back. The only negative I have is that we found a dirty washcloth in our bathroom, but the staff was very apologetic and quickly moved us into a new, upgraded room. The bed was very comfortable and I've never stayed at a hotel that was so […] quiet in my life...amazing! Also, we got a complimentary breakfast that was delicious. I would recommend a stat to anyone I know. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Fall View!"
We had a beautiful roo with a breathtaking view down the mountain!Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is beautiful, well kept and the staff were friendly and helpful. It has a large deck from which to view the mountains (unfortunately it also faces the road). There was also a large covered porch and some smaller porches. The bar was small but cozy. The breakfast menu was very good. The only issue we had was that the hotel advertised a spa […] tub but it was under construction, which was disappointing. The indoor pool was large and a comfortable temperature but it was annoying that the staff was cleaning the pool while we were swimming. We thought they should have done that before the pool opened. Overall it was a pleasant, relaxing stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"An Historic Hotel in a Great Locaiton"
The hotel is very historic. It sits on the top of a hill overlooking a valley and the view is terrific. You can sit on the veranda or the outdoor dining area and take in the view. It is outstanding. The staff is very helpful. The facility is well maintained and kept clean. It is a little worn, but that adds to the historic ambiance. The restaurant is […] very good and we enjoyed every meal we had there, especially the breakfast. We think it is the best value, classy hotel in the area. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
