"Charming vintage, convenient central location"
Although I was traveling on business, this location would be ideal for a base-camp to explore the area. Although small, the rooms are well appointed, very comfortable, with abundant hot water and the softest of robes.

"The best reason to visit Santa Barbara!"
From the time we arrived and were greeted by Katy to the time we left three days later we were treated royally. The B&B is so charming and the grounds are park-like. We stayed in the Sun Room and although small inside, the private deck is amazing! The bed was like sleeping on a cloud. The breakfasts served on our deck were delicious and served graciously. The location is so convenient for walking around downtown but we enjoyed the atmosphere at the Simpson House so much that we hung out there for hours. We will return and recommend Simpson House Inn with great enthusiasm.

"The right place in the right location"
When I go back to Santa Barbara, this is where I will stay. The layout: large comfortable rooms in a well-maintained home with outdoor garden and uncrowded parking area. The location: Perfect! Near the Mission & parks with residential surroundings for evening walks, but close to downtown and restaurants and walking distance to the harbor. The staff: friendly, helpful, and serving a great varied breakfast and happy hour snacks.

"Very enjoyable!"
All the staff members couldn't have been more helpful. The service in the restaurant was excellent but the quality of the lunch and dinner menu was only fair. We have enjoyed Sunday brunch previously and it was very good.

Lovely place and reasonably priced. Check in was easy and a little court yard was available for relaxing in the southern California weather. Our room had a living room, refrigerator, microwave and sink, so was more like a small apartment than a hotel room.

    Pocket Guide: Historic Hotels in Santa Barbara

    Santa Barbara has a long and fascinating European history which dates back to the 1600s when the first Spanish missionaries arrived in California. Thanks to this Mediterranean influence, Santa Barbara has many iconic terracotta-red tiled and whitewashed buildings, a warm, year-round climate and a Spanish colonial appeal.

    Historic Hotels in Santa Barbara

    A hundred miles up the coast from LA and sandwiched between the Santa Ynez mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Santa Barbara is a popular weekend destination for the LA crowd who come to stay in its chic historic hotels.

    Head to the stylish suburb of Montecito or for trendy Spanish-style inns, or to downtown Santa Barbara for sprawling 19th-century villas and upmarket B&Bs in Spanish Colonial Revival-style homes.

    Stay near Santa Barbara's Historic Attractions

    First stop on your history visit to Santa Barbara has to be the Mission Santa Barbara, just north of downtown. Known as the Queen of the Missions, this beautiful pink-and-white church has a fascinating museum depicting missionary life in the 18th century, and stacks of Chumash artwork from the earlier settlers.

    From the Mission, it's a short hop to El Presidio de Santa Barbara State Historic Park. Built by the Spanish in 1782, the four presidios played a vital role in Spain's occupation of Alta California. Learn more about Santa Barbara's early years in the Santa Barbara Historical Museum, which is tucked away in a stunning cloistered courtyard downtown.

    Shopping and Dining in Santa Barbara

    Renowned for its wealth of rich and famous residents, Santa Barbara has a fantastic shopping scene. Head to the Historic State Street Plaza, a pedestrianised open-air mall where designer stores line up next to hip surf labels and high-street shops.

    After a day of sightseeing or shopping, retire to your Santa Barbara historic hotel for a drink in the bar, before heading out to explore downtown's many SoCal or Mexicana restaurants, chic cocktail lounges and wine bars around Lower State Street.

    From 19th-century hacienda-style guesthouses to plush hotels built in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, use Expedia to find the best deals on historic hotels for your next stay in Santa Barbara.
