“Great Historic Hotel with Spectacular Views”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

I write this from the verandah of the hotel, watching the sun rise over an amazing vista. We are staying here during our pilgrimage to Fallingwater. This place is a beautifully preserved 1907 hotel. The lobby is filled with art glass lamps and original (I think) Arts & Crafts furniture. Dinner last night was wonderful. Anyone who criticizes it for not being a modern "Kimpton style" hotel doesn't get it at all. They can have their airport hotels with every technological feature imaginable. If you want a beautiful, gracious, and romantic taste of what a resort hotel was at the turn of the last century, look no further.

my husband and I stayed here for 2 nights for a trip to the Frank Lloyd Wright houses nearby. It was like a trip back in time (in a very good way). Lovely old-fashioned hotel, great service, interesting historical displays - but also comfortable rooms (with great beds) and good food in the restaurant. We'd love to return.

Room Tip: there are no elevators, and all the rooms are up at least one flight of stairs.

Rooms are very small and don't offer much, but despite the age of this hotel, it is clean and the service is outstanding! Mountain views are a plus. Uniontown has some nice restaurants, though the city doesn't offer much else. You pay for the view.

We stayed at the Summit Inn after touring Fallingwater. We absolutely loved the inn itself. It really brings you back to a different time. We explored every nook and cranny and admired all of the period details. We also loved the peaceful main lobby and spent a few hours in chairs by the fire, reading and relaxing. We arrived too early in the season to make use of the pools. It was also too foggy/rainy to enjoy spending time on the great porch but it is a great feature of the hotel and one that I would really enjoy on a sunnier day!

The rooms could use a little updating. While it is fun to have a historic feel in the inn and on the grounds, I enjoy a few more modern touches when I lay my head down to sleep.

We probably won't be back in this area for a while, but I would definitely stay here again if I suddenly found myself in the Laurel Highlands again!

We manage to get to the Summit Inn for a weekend almost every year. Yeah, the steps to your room can be a hassle, but it is so worth it. The rooms are a little out of date but the views are awesome and the place just oozes history and nostalgia. The restaurant has always been terrific and the staff very helpful and friendly. The Wonderbar is fun, also. Indoor and outdoor pool, too. There is so many things to do in the area that we find the Summit a great place to start the day with a great breakfast and to end a day of sightseeing, rafting, etc. We discovered some great restaurants in the area, as well.

Room Tip: You'll pay a little extra but just ask for a room with a mountain view. We like the upper floor...

Friendly staff and the people in the front desk are friendly and very help full for any issue. We really enjoyed our stay at the Submitt Inn. Also the Pancake House was a really good place to eat any meal at. Also the Korean ladie was especially nice to our family. We had so much fun in the wonderful sno park sledding hill. We would love to come back.

My husband and I stayed at the Summit Inn on our visit to Falling Water. The website made it look charming and quaint. We did not expect it to be old and dingy and the worst thing of all, we could hear the couple in the room next door's conversations. For the Saturday night stay it was very poor value. I recommend looking for other places if you want to feel like you have stayed in a quiet, clean, hotel. Ridiculous price for what it was.

Room Tip: Pick one not on the highway side.
