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.
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.
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
Very Quiet, very clean and friendly staff. Centrally located, walking distance to many venues. Great experience.
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.
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.
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 service, nice rooms, amazing roof top area with pool/spa Rooms and bathroom a bit small
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.
Beautiful hotel, nicely located downtown. Great restaurant. The pool staff was horrible. So slow, so inattentive, and kind of rude.
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.
Very close to attractions - downtown, beach, restaurants. Free breakfast included waffles, cereal, yogurt. Very clean room. The first floor is off on the side and difficult to find.

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.
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.
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.
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.
Quiet, friendly staff, great accommodations, great Food. Heater too noisy. But that ok. Dealt with it by turning it off and bundling up.
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
I stay here almost every time I go to Santa Barbara because I love the atmosphere and peacefulness of the grounds. The rooms are quaint and quite comfortable and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The only criticism I might make is that some of the bathrooms are very small - you can barely turn around in them.
The people who own and run the Cheshire Cat inn are wonderful. Attentive and willing to go the extra mile. We didn't appreciate the noise level of the streets on two sides of our cottage.
The hostess was very helpful and welcoming. Easy parking. Decor needs updating. Third floor not worth the price. Bathroom fair.
This charming B&B offers lots of quiet spots to get away from it all --- and that quiet time is a little bit sweeter when you are enjoying a homemade treat or two. Breakfast, too, is a lovely, and hearty, affair. We stayed in the Partridge Room, which has the additional charm of offering a private entrance and a small balcony --- making it a favorite among many guests. I would, however, suggest that it is not the best choice for the less agile since enjoying your balcony requires you to climb out your bathroom window. But, there are lots or other less challenging rooms to choose from. The inn is peaceful and immaculate while being located just a few blocks from the heart of Santa Barbara. P.S: If you are looking for a full length mirror, something almost impossible to find in most B&Bs, climb to the third floor. There's also a video library up there.
Staff TV in room was inadequate
I loved everything about The Bath Street Inn! They make you feel like family! It's a cozy place with the best staff. It is such a great alternative to staying in the traditional coorporate environment. Loved it!!
The homemade breakfasts were delicious, and the room was very large and comfortable. The decor was a bit cheesy, but typical of a traditional bed and breakfast.
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
Friendly Staff The room looked to be updated The location is good just on the edge of all the attractions Nice sized TV Overall look of the outside needs to be updated as the rooms seems to have been - Dated Didn't like the mattress - Lumpy Didn't like the iPod/Clock/Radio - Didn't work Didn't like the security of the room - Both knob and Deadbolt seemed to have been damaged by forced entry
Nice location, quiet residential neighborhood but close enough to downtown. Friendly staff, good bed! No frills: no pool, no coffee, no gym, no business center.
Location Cleanliness. All bathroom soap was missing and multiple light bulbs were out in the room. Bed sheets were loose and by the morning I was sleeping on the mattress.
The location right on State Street. The bed was very comfortable. The room was very clean and inviting. The bathroom was very clean and bright. Like the lighting especially. Very nice stay. Will do it again. Missed having a jacuzzi. Would of been nice to relax a bit.
The location and staff were great! Location was near the beginning on the downtown stretch. Staff are very nice and are willing to go the extra mile. Great service! Having bikes was nice although wet didn't get a chance to use them. The deck was nice. The amenities were old. Windows need updating. Very old furniture on the deck. Locks were broken. Heater and ac temperamental.
Way too much for what you get
- Location was fantastic. "Downtown" Santa Barbara is pretty small and this was an easy walk or bike ride (free bikes!) to the main area - Once in the room, you would think it was a nice hotel. The rooms were big, bright, and clean. This is definitely a motel in name only. - Ice cold lemonade at the check-in desk was a nice touch
The location. The room looked like it had been newly updated and was also very clean. The bed was very uncomfortable. The windows were very thin and you could hear everything going on in the middle of the night.
Very clean , simple but comfortable. Quiet No complaints
