This was our second visit to the Inn. It is an almost perfectly situated spot for exploring the area. I say "almost" because of the proximity of the Inn to Hwy 101, which is literally a stones throw away. I mention this first to deal with the noise issue, which might concern some, but frankly ceases to be an issue... More

While my wife and I have not had the pleasure of staying at the Inn on Summerhill, I can say that I am very pleased and impressed with their customer service. We tried to stay here for the first few nights of our honeymoon but Orbitz incorrectly cancelled our reservation (not the Inn on Summerhill's fault). While I have been... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a short trip to Santa Barbara. I was sent on a last minute business trip and ended up staying here simply because they had vacancy. I absolutely fell in love with this B&B during our short stay. I was impressed by the attentive staff who made sure our every need was filled. The... More

We stayed here for one night last week on our way up the California coast. My husband and I were traveling with our two teenage children and we all really enjoyed our stay. The Inn staff were warm and welcoming. When we checked in around 4:30 pm, the wine and cheese reception was still going on and the front desk... More

Wonderfully cozy B&B within good driving distances of Central California sights. We had no problem with highway noises as has been reported. We were in Room #3 which is downstairs and actually just a patio and parking lane away from the traffic flow. That said, we LOVE the traffic noise in general, falling into the "white noise" that puts us... More

This is a nice place with all the amenities. Really nice afternoon snacks, good breakfast and even dessert in evening. I thought hosts were a cut above most inns. Room was clean and updated. The only issue we had was bathtub seemed filmy. Filmy meaning not clean and don't want to know what was causing the film if you get... More

This a very nice Inn within proximity of Carpenteria, Montecito, Santa Barbara & Goleta. The staff are friendly & helpful, the rooms are clean, our king bed was supremely comfortable, etc., all very good except... The noise from the 101 freeway. Unless you're a heavy sleeper or drink a lot before going to bed, wear ear plugs!

My wife and I have had a fantastic experience each and every time we have been fortunate enough to stay at the Inn. The rooms are so beautiful and exceptionally clean with exquisite views of the ocean. The staff goes well beyond what is expected in making our stay both enjoyable and relaxing. The breakfasts, afternoon appetizers, and desserts were... More

Don't get me wrong: This is an incredibly nice decorated B&B or Inn. The pictures of the Web site don' t lie about that at all. Thr rooms are even bigger than the pictures suggest and the service is very good. I nevertheless would never recommend to someone to stay here cause it is really very, very loud. Never mind... More

The hotel's internet ad had us believing that we would experience a serene, quiet stay at their hotel. Their ad features wonderful words with serene background music and a picture of the nearby beach. They failed to advertise that their hotel is located next to the 101 freeway and has a train track located next to the freeway with a... More
