This was our 2nd visit to Summerhill. The staff was attentive but I think the place needs a little refurbishing. Our first visit was on our honeymoon in 1993 (!) and it doesn't appear they've made any changes to the decor since! The food was not good. We stayed 3nights, and every morning we had scrambled eggs mixed in with... More

Our room had a breathtaking view, the staff was super friendly and attentive, the food was on point and the amenities were what would be expected of a high end hotel. I can't say enough good things about this property and we will definitely be coming back!

A great place to have a quick romantic retreat. Located just a quick 10 minute drive south of Santa Barbara. The "check-in" wine hour (3-6pm) allows you to settle and relax quickly while providing a great transition before dinner. The rooms are decent size and very welcoming (we had room 11). Be sure to check out a movie from the... More

We spent two nights at this lovely inn mid-October. We were very pleased with our accommodations and with the facilities as a whole. Our room was spacious and charming. Upon arrival, classical music played on the radio to set the tone and a bottle of wine was waiting for us to enjoy. The staff do an incredible job of making... More

Nine family members from the East Coast stayed here for a 3 day mini reunion with West Coast family. Nice ambiance, pretty rooms and great breakfasts! Highway 101 was noisy when we tried to sit out on our patio or balcony, but rooms were quiet enough that the highway noise was not disturbing at night. Small boutique hotel that I... More

Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was divine. Room was cozy. TV just a bit too small but complete with movies and Netflix options. Perfect hideaway. Will return for more nights in the future. Close proximity to town of Summerland and next to Montceito. Santa Barbara is a short freeway drive.

This was such a wonderful experience. The room was just inviting and beautiful and the perfect surprise from my husband. I loved being able to just sit on the patio in the morning and take in the beach air and relax. The jacuzzi was just the right temperature and set the right mood. The breakfast was tasty and the other... More

We saw a writeup on the Inn in the LA Times and booked a room for our 30th anniversary. We worried a bit that the description might have been somewhat exaggerated, but the Inn exceeded our expectations in every way. The location is lovely with tasteful and lush landscaping that blocks the nearby freeway. From our 2nd floor balcony we... More
