We recently stayed overnight at the Villa Rosa Inn in Santa Barbara. The place is fine, but aging and in need of some TLC. The shrubs and plantings are overgrown. The pool area is in a bit of disarray again, mostly due to the lack of maintenance. The rooms are average sized but the bathroom was really tiny and strange....

I stayed at the inn this past weekend and I couldn't have been more pleased. Let me start off by saying I'm someone who loves quirky offbeat places. This is not a bougie sleek modern resort, so if that's your style, stay elsewhere. With that said, I freaking loved it here. It's an old Spanish style villa packed with unique...

Villa Rosa Inn is an historic building. It is quaint, lovely and a perfect place to spend one or several nights. It is located one block from the beach and 1/4 mile from Sterns Wharf. Shopping and restaurants are all within walking distance. The Inn is older and feels more like a residence than a hotel. It is clean and...

We really enjoyed this hotel, it is very quaint and the staff are very friendly. Every evening at 5 PM there is a cheese and wine spread that is free for guests. We found this evening gathering of the guests made new friendships and for a very enjoyable stay. Our balcony was condemned, however we did not find this to...

My husband & I stayed here touted as a B & B for one night on our way home from our son's wedding to have some couples time. The overall structure was nice; almost like a private mansion transformed into a small hotel however it was much more like a hotel than a bed and breakfast. The TV in our...

Stayed for I night last week. The room was clean, the staff very nice and the cocktail hour and breakfast was great. I felt like I was in a villa in Italy. I would come back for sure. The location was terrific.

Pros: A few steps to the beach, friendly, helpful staff, quaint, cozy, hot tub and pool a plus, free cocktail hour, free breakfast. Cons: few parking spaces, dated decor, no A/C but no biggie bec at night it was breezy. I think this is a fair and honest review. I got it for $139 since its late Sunday night. Overall,...

This is by far the worst hotel we have ever stayed. Besides the filthy accommodations they rent some of the space to people with dogs who leave them In the rooms and let them bark all night long. Complaints to front desk were met with, 'we will fix it' and nothing was done. It is an awful place the city...

We found this Villa Rosa Inn through hotels tonight app and paid £101 plus $10 on arrive. The hotel is very dated and our room smelt bad. The whole place needs updating and think it very expensive for what you get! The only plus point is that it's walking distance to the beach. That's why it gets one star! Do...

My husband and I stayed at The Villa Rosa Inn in October 2015 and April 2016. Because we enjoyed it so much the first time, we decided to return. With only 18 rooms, the hotel has the feel of a bed and breakfast inn. The service is excellent. The complimentary breakfast and late afternoon happy hour add a nice touch....
