Conveniently located on State street. Short walk to downtown, and across the street from Cantwells deli/market. Recently remodeled, so everything is new and clean. Towels were nice and plush. My room was small, but that was fine. Decent free breakfast in the morning, and the coffee wasn't bad. A tad bit noisy if your room borders the street. But traffic dies down at night, so it didn't keep me awake. Wifi speeds/latency weren't great.
I liked the convenience to major restaurants and shopping. It was not too far from the beach. The staff was friendly and accommodating. I can't think of anything that I didn't like.
the ping pong table was great! and the heated pool was nice since it got chilly at night. also, the older man at the front desk was very nice. everything else. for example: bad lighting, hard sheets; poor TV service; bent screen on window which meant we couldn't get any air circulation in the room without letting mosquitoes in, which meant we had to endure the very loud A/C when we wanted air circulation; water from the bathroom sink smelled strongly of sulfur; lots of fruit flies/gnats in the room, and some spiders, too.... you get the point.
Enjoyed the vintage charm and ambiance. Beautiful and relaxing with a very friendly staff. Cozy cottages. Beds were too squeaky and the slightly thin walls between your neighbors
Quiet, friendly staff, great accommodations, great Food. Heater too noisy. But that ok. Dealt with it by turning it off and bundling up.
Beautiful historical building Seems at 8:30 am the shower ran out of hot water
We loved the B&B feel of the Country House. The smell of fresh baked goods most of the day is enough to get me to come back. Fresh made breakfast, baked goods, homemade cookies at night, wine in the afternoon...the hospitality was amazing. The back patio and yard were so nice and quaint. We had a relaxing weekend at the Country House. The only complaint we had was we had a squeaky bed (every time one rolls over, everyone is awake, etc). New towels would be a nice update as well, but these wouldn't deter us from staying again. It was lovely.
The service was impeccable. Like staying with family... The included breakfast and snacks were thoughtful and delicious. The perfect romantic getaway. Highest recommendations! Having to leave.
If you need a place to take a deep breath and relax, Simpson House Inn is it. From our personal greeting when we arrived until we said good-bye, the friendly staff catered to our every need. Hedges surround the secluded Victorian home making it a true get-away. The room was beautifully decorated with antiques, meticulously clean, and very comfortable. The pillows and bedding were first-class and made for an excellent night’s sleep. The complimentary Kiehl’s bath and body products made getting clean delightful. At our romantic table for two on the veranda we were served amazing vegetarian breakfasts (banana pancakes were my favorite) on cherished family china. In the afternoon, we enjoyed a few too many of the fresh-baked cookies. The evening Hors d’oeuvres were truly delectable. We like good food – and we were not disappointed! In-between eating, we spent time sitting in the beautiful garden, listening to the soothing fountain, and admiring the sprawling Oak Tree. We strolled downtown, walked through nearby parks, visited a museum, and drove to Solvang. Our stay was a trip back in time, yet with all of the modern comforts – including Wi-Fi, television and a mini-fridge. Thank you Simpson House for the perfect vacation.
Overall facility was quaint, size was spacious. Neighborhood it was in was residential but quiet. Typical beach B&B. The bath and parlor room smelled very strong of urine or foul smell. Told manager, who became offensive to us instead of finding a resolution. We requested another room which they did not have, or the option of a refund which was flatly refused
It's walking distance to the State st. which was nice. They don't have hot breakfast before 9 a.m. which was disappointing (we needed to be at a meeting by 9 a.m., so they provide a cold breakfast). Location
Staff is all very friendly and helpful. Location is great, walked to State Street, restaurants and shopping. Also beach, wharf and Funk Zone is walkable distance. Pricey, but then Santa Barbara is overall.
The hotel staff was fantastic!!! We so enjoyed our stay at the Inn of the Spanish Gardens. We will definitely return.
Quiet, the staff was very helpful, beautiful garden, patio, registration/sitting area. Even at the bookings.com price, it seemed overpriced. But I guess that's Santa Barbara.
The room was beautiful with a gas log fire that added a romantic touch. The service was first class and authentic.
Beautiful place to stay! I loved the fountain and being able to hear it from my room. The linens were soft and luxurious. The soaking tub was relaxing. I loved the spanish style and elegant touches such as the tile and bath fixtures. The continental breakfast was great. I wish there was more of a variety of food on the room service menu.
The room was fantastic, the staff and service exceptional. I really got the feeling that the staff would be happy to help with anything. the room was very bright and spacious in a typical 'Spanish' style. Could have stayed there far longer then the 2 days we had
Nice room, friendly staff and good location, but just to expensive.
Staff very friendly and attentive. Rooms were very clean and comfortable.
This was a very quaint hotel. It is a perfect place if you enjoy more of a 'bed & breakfast' inn-like experience (rather than a major hotel or resort experience). The staff was very friendly and made you feel like you were a guest in their home. Large, clean rooms. If you are accustomed to staying at larger, higher-end hotels and getting the full 'brand experience', this may be a bit dissapointing. My previous location before stopping here was the Ritz in San Francisco. The two locations are worlds apart. Again, the staff couldn't be nicer and the rooms were large and clean, but the facility did have a city 'grit' to it. This is a solid 3 star experience. But if you were expecting a 4- or 5- star stay, you may be dissapointed.
