My fiancee and I stayed at the Simpson Inn over Memorial Day weekend. We were so satisfied. I come to this part of Texas a couple of times a year, and will definitely be back.
First, I cannot say enough great things about Pam, the owner. She is one of the nicest people I've ever come across. She always went out of her way to serve us with grace and a smile--just an all-around class act.
The hotel itself has some great history, having been around since the early 1900s, and declared an historical landmark by the state. The rooms are small, but comfortable. I also couldn't believe the price ($75/night) for such a nice place. The hotel overall is very clean and beautiful. It's definitely a throwback to a simpler time, which is appropriate for anything in a small quiet place like Seagraves!
Breakfast was always ready at the exact second we made it down to our table. The food was delicious, and clearly made with fresh ingredients. The dinner options were great--try the truffle pasta! And the desserts made your mouth water. Additionally, you have to try the cask ale. Simpson Inn is the only place anywhere in West Texas that brews it. The ale has a fruity note to it, and tastes sort of like an IPA. My fiancee, sister and I ball had several glasses, and enjoyed it.
If you find yourself in this part of the world, don't even consider the big chain hotels in places like Brownfield or Seminole. They will overcharge you, and not give you the customer service that you'll get right on Main Avenue in downtown Seagraves. You will not be disappointed in the Simpson Inn.
