Villa ross review

5 on July 25, 2014

Quiet and right where you wanna be. Great inn.


Great place to stay!

4.6 on July 24, 2014

This was our second stay at the charming Villa Rosa. The first time, 3 years ago, unprecedented rains created unanticipated challenges -- but the staff responded promptly and made our stay memorable. This trip the weather was picture-perfect, and so was our stay at the Villa Rosa. The bread served at breakfast was delightful. The happy hour snacks were just right, although I wish they served local wines during happy hour. Appreciated the quiet, neighborhood feel while being just steps from the beach and from lower State Street. Can't wait to go back!


Great place

4.4 on July 21, 2014

We only stayed one night. It was a very quiet and beautiful place. Walking Distance to restaurants and the pier. We had a partial view of the ocean from our balcony.


Good place near the beach

3.6 on June 27, 2014

Very decent lodging close to the beach with happy hour wine and snacks and good continental breakfast.


A gem of a hotel

4.4 on June 19, 2014

We stayed at the Villa Rosa Inn in June 2014 for my son's graduation from UCSB. I didn't know what to expect, but only knew it was a small hotel. We had the room with 2 beds, one up a flight of stairs and one below, and my husband and I shared with my sister and mother. We ended up having a wonderful time! The only minus was that this room had a tiny bathroom for all of us to share, but there was an extra bathroom in the hallway right outside our room. I loved the Spanish decor and all the beautiful touches in this hotel. The staff was more than friendly, they were amazing! Wade was very personable and gracious and made us feel very welcome. I loved the numerous areas for our family to gather and talk. There is a nice sitting area inside the lobby with a fire, very cozy, and tables outside by the pool. Since we had family getting together for the graduation, it was the perfect place to have our champagne and talk! The garden by the pool is beautiful and is decorated with so many unique things like mortar stones and anchors. Everywhere you look there is an interesting detail. The hotel is also steps from the ocean, so you can't beat the location. I highly recommend this hotel, and we'll be staying there next year for my 2nd son's graduation!


Bathroom needs a complete remodel for room 10

2.0 on June 12, 2014

The first thing we noticed was the entry lock was very difficult to turn. It needed to be removed, lubricated, tested and replaced. This was mentioned to the manager and for the three days we were there, nothing was done. I was afraid the key might break off in the lock because it was so difficult to turn. The shower curtain rod was severly rusted. The shower tiles were losing their grout and some on the tub top edge were cracked and or broken. The light fixture in the bathroom was very old, missing the light cover lens so the light bulb was exposed and the heater switch was not working. The bathroom in room 10 was so small that there was no room to put toiletries for convenience of use. The lighting above the sink was so dim that it made seeing clearly extremely difficult. They need to know that a coat of paint and some white silicone for patching the tile is not good for a clean room and good esthetics. Closet shelves were badly scratched and in need of fresh paint.


Wonderful!

Still dreaming of our stay at Villa Rosa!


Great location!

Close to beach, very nice, will be back!


Lovely, quirky and welcoming

3.0 on May 27, 2014

Beautiful 1920's era Spanish revival architecture just a block from the beach. It's homey, warm, inviting, and a little down at the heels. It has a well-used feel, kind of like staying at your aunt's place, you know, your mother's sister who used to have money, then divorced, but kept the house and has been living there for 30 years and struggles to maintain appearances. Still you really like to visit because it's quirky and welcoming, even though she's not a great cook. We'll go back.


Go Far Far Away

1.0 on May 22, 2014

By Far ... Absolutely ... the WORST place to stay in Santa Barbara. TERRIBLE guest "services". The manager has a hole in the wall disgusting and messy closet as an office and takes forever to get to you. And do not for a MINUTE think your room will look ANYTHING like the web site. NOTHING like the photos on line. Disgusting pool and hot tub. The little girls they have running the place have zero experience in guest services. The TVs are great. Vizio. But don't bother trying to watch anything. Cannot get a signal. We were there with 2 other couples. Three rooms. None of the TVs had any clear signal. And oh yes. The dog in the pool comment? Must be one of the employees dogs. Because it seems to be an accepted practice. And, we had to make our balcony private by placing a blanket between our side and the room to our left. Because the occupants were within 2 feet of us. Ridiculous. When we confronted the "manager" with all of these issues, she offered us $20 off our $615 stay. GO FAR FAR AWAY from this place and don't let the false advertising fool you.
