Very nice hotel with personal touch about 2 miles away to Santa Barbara wharf. Plenty of parking lots on the back side of the Inn. Breakfast was delicious and satisfying. It was very nice to sit outside and enjoy the view.

Everything and everyone was wonderful. Highly recommended the Simpson house! Breakfast was good, happy hour orderves and wine was very enjoyable. So much food that dinner was not necessary? Good location only two blocks from State St. with several restaurants.

I did call and they got back to me immediately. They don't have a room with 2 beds for me and my sister sadly. Such a beautiful place though – I would love to visit with my husband!
