Stayed for one night in Santa Barbara during my Pacific Highway roadtrip. What a lovely city! Booked the Simpson House Inn after reading all TripAdvisor reviews and I have no regrets, wished I could stay one more night. Since I booked using the Visa Luxury Hotel Collection (I believe it's a subset of the Kiwi Collection) I received an upgrade that put me into the Greenwich Cottage! This B&B thinks about every little detail. A small cake upon arrival, candles to light near the bathtub, a small flashlight to use the bathroom during the night, complimentary cookies, Wine & Cheese hour and the list goes on. The service was top notch and all I can do is recommend to stay there at least once.
I'm not giving it a 5/5 review for one reason: the hotel is 20-minute walk to the best of State St. and a 40-minute walk to the beach. I was aware of that but not worried since several reviews told about the bikes the B&B have. It turns out that they have only one set of bikes for all 15 rooms. And when I arrived one of the bikes from this set was under maintenance, so my expectation of leveraging this bike friendly city was not fulfilled. Besides that, a place to stay for at least to nights and refresh yourself.
