Charming place, beautiful landscape, excellent staff service, & great location

My husband and I stayed here for our babymoon. I was 35 weeks pregnant so the goal was to stay at a location where we could just relax and enjoy the atmosphere. Walking into the Simpson House Inn immediately transported us to the relaxing oasis we were hoping for. From complimentary Hors d’oeurves in the evening enjoyed on the veranda overlooking the garden, to reading by the fire in the beautifully renovated reading room, to an amazing breakfast the next morning on the veranda with birds chirping. Our room was upgraded on arrival and included a large bathing tub which I enjoyed so much. The hotel is located walking distance from state st where we shopped and enjoyed the restaurants. It was the perfect getaway!! The only negative thing I could even come up with is that the bath mats in the bedroom looked like they could have used replacing... we did not use them. But other than that everything was luxurious and clean and the staff was excellent!

Beautiful inn with lovely and spacious rooms. The grounds are gorgeous and the staff is so incredibly friendly and accommodating. While we did not have the opportunity to take advantage of the afternoon wine and snacks, we did enjoy the wonderful complimentary breakfast in the morning. Highly recommend this property!

Always relaxing and comfortable. Love the style of the different rooms and the garden sitting areas.

The Inn is close to most things in Santa Barbara. We walked to restaurants, the beach, the funk zone and McConnel's Ice Cream as well as the Court House and the Mission. Wonderful service combined with exceptional breakfasts. So much better than a hotel. The room we had included a fireplace which we used every night. Very comfortable and amazing gardens. Can't think of any negatives, just a great experience.

Location perfect for downtown shopping & beauty. Grounds & rooms immaculate. Staff so polite & friendly. Food healthy & delightful!
