Where do I begin..... We came to Santa Barbara for a bachelorette party with nine ladies last year in October. Half of us arrived in the afternoon to try for an early check-in. We were greeted with the less than enthusiastic front desk staff who said they only had one reservation (we reserved two cottages for the weekend). The issue...

Like the title says, don't stay in the "cottages"!! It was bad. Not all the "cottages" seem to be own by the Villa Rosa owner and I tell you, those tenants are annoying!!!! My companion and me thought the walls were made of paper cause you could hear everything thru them. The actual Villa Rosa Inn is "ok" but not...

This is a quaint B&B just a block off State St and the ocean and Stearns Wharf in Santa Barbara. We stayed here several years ago and remembered it fondly. Caliornia/European feel, beautiful gardening, pleasant courtyard. We stayed again this weekend and was largely disappointed. The employees were not hospitality-minded, the linens were dingy, beds were worn and the breakfast...

Loved everything about this inn. The Rustic California style was comforting and the room looked just like the photo. The TV, bath, bed made it feel more like home than hotel. Easy to imagine it was a Villa or Hacienda instead of a hotel. Staff was quick and efficient, The lite breakfast was clean, well done, fruit and butter chilled,...

I would normally have given this Inn a great review. My husband and I have stayed here twice and really enjoyed it. But the last time, I accidentally left a $150 wool jacket in the closet when we left and of course when I called the hotel to inquire about my coat, I was told that the head housekeeper was...

We visit Santa Barbara often, but this was our first stay at Villa Rosa (we usually stay at Marina Beach Motel which we thoroughly love). We decided to stay here because the last time we were in SB we were walking by and it looked really nice. So we opted for something new this time around. The location is nice,...

We booked and room and when we arrived they had "given the room" to someone else with the same last name as ours. At first the receptionist gave us a little attitude "well they already checked in and paid for the room". We traveled 7 hours there for a wedding and they finally did agree to give us another room,...

This was our second stay at the "inn" and only because my husband thought tha patio area lovely. On the 1st stay we checked out after one night- this was over two years ago. The rooms are still dingy and the furnishings well used. The bathroom only had a very small shower (not that clean) with a window overlooking the...
