Charming B and B in Santa Barbara
Reviewed 4 days ago

My husband and I stayed at Simpson House for three nights and hope to revisit this very charming inn again soon. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival which happened to be at the end of the evening happy hour. Jennifer gave us a tour of the house and explained all we needed to know before making sure we had a glass of wine and snack. We had a room on the second floor with a private full bath and a big wrap around porch giving us a full view of the beautifully landscaped grounds. (Robes and slippers provided).
Breakfast was delicious. All vegetarian options and incredibly fresh ingredients. The table service was top notch with pretty china and coffee service, fresh baked goodies, fruit, eggs and a special daily entree. With a complementary newspaper this is the perfect start to your day. The Inn is convenient for walking to restaurants and shopping or even to the ocean. Also...free parking and wi-fi.

An amazing stay...:0)

Santa Barbara in Style
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The room was not what we expected and was not worth the price. The hotel location is fine, the garden is nice and the evening light buffet was good except for the red wine. The breakfast service was also good.

Beautiful Country Inn in Walking Distance of Downtown Santa Barbara
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

A beautiful country inn, including a sumptuous breakfast, within walking distance of downtown Santa Barbara. When we arrived we were told that the staff wanted to spoil us and they did. In addition to the extensive and delicious breakfast, there is iced tea, lemonade and cookie in the afternoon and a wide selection of hors d'oueveres and wine from 5:30-6:30. We stayed in the tack room which was spacious, comfortable and modernized.
