Very Quiet, very clean and friendly staff. Centrally located, walking distance to many venues. Great experience.
Great service, nice rooms, amazing roof top area with pool/spa Rooms and bathroom a bit small
This hotel was always beautiful - I like modern boutique hotel which this is not and I still love it - kimpton purchased it and added their touches which are great but didnt change the character of a beautiful hotel nothing
Friendly, knowledgeable staff High price for valet-only parking
Atmosphere is nice. Romantic. Room is cozy. Location is by far the best thing. So close to State street. 10 min to anywhere worthwhile. A bit noisy in the room. Rooftop is cute but small. Pool and jacuzzi is small.
The location was good. The hotel was very noisy and only moderately clean. There was mold in the bathroom and several spiders in the room. The bed was also unomfortable.
Beautiful hotel, nicely located downtown. Great restaurant. The pool staff was horrible. So slow, so inattentive, and kind of rude.
In heart of downtown SB, walking distance to Granada Theatre and dining/retail, beautiful Spanish Mission styling. Excellent service at valet parking, front desk, restaurant, and housekeeping. Wonderful canopy bed but definitely used the step stool. Only thing missing was a ottoman to put up your feet. Absolutely nothing. Expensive but worth the splurge.
Great location with incredible staff who made sure my stay was top notch. They made my stay worth it. Room was becoming worn and torn, with some awkward elements like a flat screen in the bathroom that was too big for the space. I understand they're going for chic, but ultimately fell flat and was silly. Less is more.
Lovely decor, comfy bed. Good location to walk and shop. Free bike loaners. Pet friendly. Complimentary wifi and coffee. Tiny rooms. Loud street noise all night. Inconsistent seevice, some great, some disinterested. Poor shower pressure. Weak air conditioning in bedroom.
Ian at the front desk was absolutely phenomenal. He went way out of his way to make sure we were comfortable, and gave us a fantastic recommendation for dinner. The valets were extremely pleasant, willing to help and attentive They seem to be a bit understaffed.
The restaurant and bar were very nice. Fabulous staff. We will be staying again in July as our daughter is getting married very close to the hotel. The individuals we talked to in setting up several suite reservations and possibly doing a bridal lunch were somewhat customer service lacking.
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.
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.
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.
Nice room, friendly staff and good location, but just to expensive.
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.
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.
The hotel staff was fantastic!!! We so enjoyed our stay at the Inn of the Spanish Gardens. We will definitely return.
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 room was beautiful with a gas log fire that added a romantic touch. The service was first class and authentic.
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
Staff very friendly and attentive. Rooms were very clean and comfortable.
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.
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.
Perfect match for grown-ups on State Street in Austin. Victorian, main house w/ reception & restaurant, rooms in separate buildings, but faithful, older victorian buildings. Tall rooms, updated baths. Slept in, so it must have been good.. I liked most everything.
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.
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.
Beautiful historical building Seems at 8:30 am the shower ran out of hot water
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
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
