Rooms & Rates
The Simpson has three rooms downstairs and three upstairs. The Garden Rooms downstairs have a bathroom that is wheelchair-accessible.
All of our beds are of high quality, and our bedding is line-dried in the sun, weather-permitting. This gives the linens a pleasing, fresh crispness that many guests remark upon. We use only high-quality, non-toxic cleaning products in the rooms and bathrooms. We remove insects by hand and use no pesticides.
We guarantee exclusively assigned bathrooms for individual rooms booked. Some rooms have adjacent bathrooms, others have bathrooms down the hall (see the room descriptions).
Families or other groups can book rooms sharing baths for discounted rates (see the room descriptions).
We keep Udder Delight Almond Oatmeal Milk & Honey Goat Milk soaps in our bathrooms, made in nearby Glenwood, New Mexico, along with Shikai herbal shampoo and conditioner.
All guests should be aware that there are friendly cats that sometimes frequent the common areas of the hotel. They are forbidden to enter guest rooms, to protect those with allergies.
The Simpson is a smoke-free hotel. We have a pleasant smoking area back in our acre of gardens. Guests may smoke only in that area, and not outside the front door or on the second floor balcony.
All room rates are subject to 11.05% state and local taxes.
The Old Library Room ⁓ $70
We expanded this former storefront adjacent to the hotel to include a simple kitchenette, and a private bathroom with a small corner shower. The bedroom has a queen bed and a table with antique chairs. The Old Library Room’s back door opens onto our little shade garden.
The Garden Room ⁓ $55
This is a quiet room that looks onto our shade garden. Guests may book this room with private bathroom, or book the two Garden Rooms together (“The Garden Room Suite”) sharing the bathroom. Each Garden Room has an antique double bed and other vintage furnishings. The bathroom, with a big tiled shower, is right next to this room on a back hallway.
The Garden Room Suite⁓ $90
Two rooms sharing one bathroom
Book these two quiet, cozy rooms together, sharing one bathroom, and get a discounted rate. Each room has an antique double bed and other vintage furnishings. The bathroom has a big tiled shower and is on the same hallway as the rooms. The rooms are in the back of the building and look out on a quiet shade garden.
The Sweetheart Room ⁓ $80
This spacious, quiet room has a queen bed, a table with two chairs and other antiques, and a cozy, protected atmosphere furnished in a Chinese theme. It has a large attached bathroom with an antique clawfoot tub long enough for anyone to submerge in. The tub has a hand-held shower fixture.
The Cormac Room ⁓ $50
A small corner room overlooking Main Street and our Main Street Garden, the Cormac, is named for novelist Cormac McCarthy, who wrote brilliantly about our region in his Border Trilogy. The wild Peloncillo Mountains that flank Duncan to the southwest were on the route that McCarthy’s she-wolf took out of Mexico in the first book of the trilogy, The Crossing. The Cormac has two twin beds, a big Main Street window, and a view from a side window of our Main Street Garden.
The East Room ⁓ $75
This large, sunny corner room has two double beds with antique frames, a vintage wardrobe, loveseat couch, and a table with four chairs. Overlooking Main Street, it’s the first room in the hotel to catch the morning sun. Its bathroom, with a tiled corner shower, is down the hall, and is guaranteed private to the East Room unless you book the Cormac Room to share the bathroom with the East. See “East plus Cormac” option below for a discounted rate for the two rooms sharing one bathroom.
The East Plus Cormac Package ⁓ $105
Families and other groups often book the East and Cormac Rooms together, sharing one bathroom down the hall. The bathroom has a tiled corner shower.
Full breakfast is $12.50 for adults and youths, $8.00 for children 5-11 (plus tax). Continental breakfast is $8.00 for adults and kids 5 and up (plus tax). Under 5 eats for free!
Our typical breakfast includes a main dish made from very fresh local eggs with vegetables, cheese and continental seasonings, a complex carbohydrate side (organic multi-grain griddle cakes, or waffles with hot berry compote topping, or savory potatoes), a turkey or chicken sausage or bacon or vegetarian "meat," and a bowl of fresh fruit. We happily accommodate gluten-free, vegan or other preferences. Just let us know ahead of time if possible.
Everyone loves our coffee, which we grind fresh from fair-trade, shade-grown, organic beans. Or enjoy your choice of teas, or hot organic chocolate, dairy or non-dairy. Orange juice always; cold milk upon request.
As much as possible we incorporate vegetables, fruits and herbs from our own gardens into the breakfasts, according to season. Every four weeks we get a delivery of fresh organic and natural foods from Azure Standard in Oregon.

Deposits, Cancellation & Other Policies
When you make your reservation, we will collect a deposit equal to the first night’s stay plus tax. That deposit is fully refundable as long as we get at least three days’ notice of cancellation. Your breakfasts, if any, will be charged when you check out.
The Simpson Hotel is smoke-free, except for one designated area in the back yard. Smoking in a guest room will cost you a $350 cleaning fee. We enforce Arizona laws prohibiting smoking within 20 feet of any hotel entrance.
We are committed to maintaining a stress-free, relaxing environment for our guests. Therefore, we ask all guests to observe the following house rules:
· After 9 pm and before breakfast, be thoughtful about voice and other noise levels, especially in hallways outside guest rooms.
· No disorderly conduct at any time.
· Children are welcome. Children under the age of 11 must be under a parent's or caretaker's supervision at all times. Noise levels must be in keeping with respect for other guests’ comfort.
· Our kitchen and office are private areas and are not open to hotel guests.
· We encourage your use of our lobby and parlor for socializing as long as there is no disturbing of other guests.
· There are two drinking establishments within walking distance, so we refer all boisterous drinking or partying plans to one or more of those locations.
· Because of the historic nature of our hotel, we do not have televisions in the rooms. You are welcome to watch movies on your own player. If you are not using headphones, the volume must be kept low enough that other guests are not disturbed. You are also welcome to borrow books from our parlor library and take them to your room.
· Our wireless internet is available for your use throughout the building. Please be aware that our rural internet speed is not what you may be accustomed to if you live in a larger market.
· Absolutely no illegal use of drugs, and no drug- or alcohol-impaired conduct will be tolerated.
