Simpson House Inn, Santa Barbara

Peaceful and charming getaway
Beautiful inn, peaceful and relaxing, amazing service. In a nice residential neighborhood adjacent to lovely Alice Keck Park and an easy walk to State St.'s restaurants and shops. Our room (Sun Room) was very small but charming. We selected it for the fantastic and roomy private deck where we sat for hours and read or dozed. Breakfast service was very nice but the food a bit lackluster. We enjoyed the plentiful and delicious evening snacks and wine service. Overall I'd say Simpson Inn is pricey, but we liked the idea we were contributing in some small way to the upkeep of its historic charms.
