"secluded hotel"
The room was large and quiet. The environment is secluded as we stayed in one of the cottages and was quiet. The parking is off street and safe. There are good restaurants within easy walking distance.

"I wanted a fresh pair of slippers!"
The accommodations were incredibly comfortable. There is a lovely southern style porch for relaxing and socializing outdoors. The restaurant food was amazing, and all the food was incredibly fresh. We always enjoy a takeaway of some kind, a pair of slippers, a postcard, anything. I took home a small bottle of lotion, which was a Ballard Inn private label, but no indication of the quality of what was in the bottle.

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.

"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.

    Pocket Guides: Independent Hotels in Santa Barbara

    Thanks to 300 days of sunshine a year, a temperate Mediterranean climate and beautiful terracotta-roofed Spanish architecture, the chic palm-lined city of Santa Barbara is known as the American Riviera.

    There is a number of independent hotels in and around Santa Barbara, from low-key hotels and quirky B&Bs in hacienda-style villas, to upmarket ranches, inns in Victorian mansions and chic boutique hotels overlooking the beach.

    Stay in an Independent Hotel in Santa Barbara

    Santa Barbara's independent hotels offer a whole host of amenities and services, from indoor or outdoor pools, lavish restaurants and bars, to free bike hire and 24-hour room service. Book a room in an independent guesthouse, hotel or inn in Santa Barbara and you could also enjoy complimentary full breakfast, wine and cheese socials and WiFi.

    Stay near Santa Barbara's Main Attractions

    Book a room in an independent hotel off State Street downtown and you'll be a 15-minute walk from the iconic Mission Santa Barbara, a charming pink-and-white church built by Spanish missionaries in the 1700s.

    Or wander next door and see the Californian native wildlife exhibits in the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, before heading south to Anacapa Street and climbing the 85-foot tower in the Spanish Colonial-style Santa Barbara County Courthouse for the best views of the city.

    Santa Barbara's Wine Country

    Explore Santa Barbara County further by booking an independent hotel or inn in the Santa Ynez Valley, a 30-mile drive northwest of downtown or a short ride on the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner. Made up of five small towns, it's called Santa Barbara Wine Country thanks to the many vineyards and wineries you’ll see when you visit.
