A beautiful accommodation in a great position. We loved the drinks and nibbles in the afternoons which gave us a chance to meet and chat to other guests. We came on family recommendation and were delighted with our stay. We appreciated the extra touches in the rooms although there wasn't a lot of space around the sink for toiletries etc. The stairs were a bit of a mission! We would recommend you to anyone heading your way!


One day visit to Santa Barbara

Although the rooms are small and compact, they are truly a bargain. We had a room opening to the pool. They snacks and breakfast were great. The wharf was in walking distance as well as the bay shoreline.


Surprises Can Be a Good Thing

We decided to head to Santa Barbara at the last minute for the weekend and didn't want to spend $500 a night. We had no idea what to expect ... The Villa Rosa is a boutique hotel and is an absolute Gem. From the time we made the reservation with Haley until we checked-out (also with Haley), the experience was nothing short of spectacular. We stayed in lucky room #13 on the second floor ... the corner room with an amazing view of the beach and pier. We flew in to SB airport, rented a car and then departed on the Surfliner train (3 blocks from the hotel). The location was perfect, inclusive breakfast was perfect, as was the hosted evening wine and cheese. It was my boyfriend's retirement as a commercial pilot so we've stayed in a lot of hotels over the years and this experience simply could not have been any better! Thank you to all of the staff at Villa Rosa Inn and a special shout out of gratitude to Haley! Denise and Dan


Villa Rosa August 2016

Can't beat location. Near Amtrak, near beach, near Funk Zone, near State Street shopping/dining areas.....All easy walking distance. Our room was on corner and had LOTS of glass. (5 windows/1glass balcony door). If you don't like exposure & noise, it's not for you, but we liked the charm. Truth is, hotel is worn. Balconies in many rooms were red-tagged. Seems like someone thought they were unsafe and ratted them out to city building inspectors. Complimentary breakfast is set up in a very cramped area and not worth the hassle. Pool area is too small to lounge around, and not comfortable for al fresco breakfast or happy hour. Hey, they have OK wine and cheese in evening. Not may decent/affordable places to stay in that area of SB. Villa Rosa IS unique, we would stay there again if I can't find something else interesting with similar price & location.


Nice location and cosy athmosphere

The hotel is nicely located, just a few steps from the beach. The free parking is a nice feature. The rooms could be refreshed though given the price tag. The afternoon wine and cheese is a nice attention but California wine should be offered. All in, a good experience.


Charming B&B

4.0 on August 08, 2016

Very charming and awesome location! Even though the balcony were condemned it was a lovely room (we knew in advance about the balcony). We walked to the pier to have dinner. We slept with the windows open and it was surprisingly very quiet during the night. Wine and cheese was a nice touch too!


My favorite place to stay

4.8 on August 01, 2016

Villa Rosa Inn located in Santa Barbara is my most favorite place to stay. It is unique, with environment with exquisite character. Every place you look, is filled with a little something special, it might be coy swimming in a small pool, or a cabinet of old dolls with a stroller atop. The personnel are very friendly and more than helpful for details of the inn or best place to go for pizza. I was in room 7 which had an atrium from the bath, which was very peaceful. There was a personal entrance from the room to the pool via a patio, this was extremely convenient. I will definitely return to Villa Rosa on my next Santa Barbara trip.


Very nice hotel

Absolutely Adorable!

Villa Rosa Inn was perfect! It was beautiful, quaint and comfortable, and the location is ideal!


Love this place

3.6 on June 23, 2016

If you're looking for swanky food and service, or a lot of hustle and bustle, stay elsewhere. If you're looking for a LOVELY, cozy, friendly, calm little spot in a perfect location, this is your place. The facility is charming and the hosts are warm and friendly. I go back year and after year after year, to relax and enjoy the soul-nourishing environment.
