This is a wonderful historic hotel in a small Texas town with lots of history. Don's miss the area. Very comfortable and the owner will go out of his way to help. I will definitely stay here again. What a unique find!
I took a 30 mile detour (60 round trip) to experience this historic hotel. I was concerned that it would be crazy expensive when I was told it was a two room suite with private bath ... no! I was there mid-week and caught a special off the $99 regular rate. The building has a few "scars", but that is to be expected due to its age and comeback from abandoned status. The owner, Gareth, is very friendly and willing to talk of the hotel's history. The rooms were clean and comfortable, though I had to wait a touch for the shower to get hot. The dining area has a Keurig coffee maker, small fridge with juice, and a few snacks available at any time. Main Street Pizza & Ice Cream next door also gives a discount to hotel guests. The meatball sub I had was very good.
This experience was a delight. Such a surprising treat. Our family lives just over the state line in Hobbs, New Mexico and they had never heard about this place. Luckily I passed its sign and followed up. Now, I believe we will go back and stay longer. Things to remember: bring your own sodas and snack (there is a community refrigerator for guests); eat at the ale house on site (it's delicious & reasonably priced.); visit with "Jack", the owners' father (he's a character!). Rooms are very nice but tiny so be prepared. The only thing I think it could benefit from is a gift store and concession area for drinks and snacks. Other than that it's phenomenal!
This super cute B&B can only be described as an oasis. I have had the honor of staying at the Simpson Inn many times and I can't say enough about it. I have a big family in the area and when we all get together my parent's home is always over booked. I first stayed in a room here for a wedding and I was so blown away that even if my parent home isn't over booked I still stay at the Simpson! We had a bridal shower here that was amazing. Our host put together one of the most beautiful cheese and charcuterie plates that I had ever seen. They have wonderful wines and craft beers. The breakfast is worth a trip in it's self. The rooms are comfortable and clean. This place will take you back in time ... but with all the comfort of today!
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.…
The decor is beautiful and takes you back in time. The staff are welcoming and are willing to accomodate you as a guest. All I can say is that you must stay here! The decor is vintage but there are of course modern commodities. Its a comfortable place to enjoy some of the history of the area.
I had the distinct pleasure of staying here during my "Walk Across America" campaign and Pam, Debbie and Brandon made me feel right at home. The Simpson Inn and Ale House is an historic landmark that will transport you into a bygone era with its pristine hardwood floors and banisters, antique Victorian furniture and furnishings throughout, every room impeccably decorated and maintained, home cooked meals served with an old fashioned southern smile and hospitality, this B&B is second to none and worth every penny and more!!!
This is a wonderful old two story Inn and Ale House. It is very beautifully decorated with charming paintings and old world touches. We were made to feel very welcome. The ale is excellent and promises more to come soon, and the service was incomparable. Our room was beautiful and cozy. Very comfortable. We stayed two days and the included cooked breakfast was yummy and plentiful. I give this hotel 6 stars out of 5!!
