Old world charm

3.8 on September 23, 2017

The Inn was very nice and has an old world charm. The grounds are beautiful accept the parking lot that could us some upgrading. It is convenient to the beach and many restaurants. The day we spent there was unusually hot so I appreciated all the fans in the room. We will stay there again.


Over-priced lodgings!

2.0 on July 25, 2017

This small hotel looks a lot better online than in person! So many things were broken or just plain OLD. I can appreciate a historic building; but this place is falling down! In our room alone, these items were broken: door lock to outside patio, sliding blinds, ceiling fan. They are charging top prices because of nice location by the pier, and it appears no money is going to upkeep or updates. We spent over $600 for TH and FRI night stay. Included was a $10 pp "resort fee"! Really??? What for? There is only the pool, which could be nice, but has patched tilework, over-grown, tired greenery, and garage sale patio furniture. The wine & cheese reception is a nice touch, but does not make up for the neglect of what could be a beautiful little property. Staff was friendly and helpful. Someone needs to get after the slumlord who owns this place!


A wonderful experience

Spent a great night at Villa Rosa. Spacious rooms, unique decor, spectacular location, friendly staff. Not many food options, but this is a small bnb after all.


Great Santa Barbara inn!

Great little bed and breakfast with a cozy pool! Great staff!


Beautiful B&B

3.6 on May 31, 2017

The location of the Villa Rosa Inn is excellent and the staff are very friendly. The rooms were pleasant and ours had a balcony that led out to the courtyard and the pool. You can walk everywhere from the Inn, to the beach which is right there and the pier is also very close. You cannot beat the location, the Inn is also a beautiful place to stay.


Hidden treasure

Villa Rosa was fantastic! It's a great retreat from the hustle and bustle. Steps from the beach and they offer happy hour with wine and cheese. We will definitely be coming back!


Good place to stay!

Very quaint little hotel close to everything in Santa Barbara. Beautiful courtyard with pool and jacuzzi! The wine and appetizers are a nice touch!


Villa Rosa Weekend in Santa Barbara

5 on May 03, 2017

A perfect microcosm of Santa Barbara itself: quaint, warm, homely, and full of that quintessential Santa Barbara glow. Not to mention the location is perfect. Stay here for a wonderful weekend. The staff is attentive and always available.


Great place to stay!

I love it here, I will definitely be back. Its right by the water, i could see it from my balcony. It's less than a mile from downtown and it costs way less than the surrounding hotels.


Holiday Break in SB

3.4 on January 01, 2017

Darling old B&B. We stayed in room 13 and our friends stayed in room 3. Room size excellent, but in dire need of updating. Room 3 had a very unpleasant smell in it that would not clear, even with the windows open. I think they should remove all of the old carpet and replace with the beautiful Saltillo tile that runs throughout the public areas of the hotel. We really loved the pool courtyard, living room, evening wine and cheese reception (the 4 of us took over the LR and enjoyed the wine reception and the fireplace for several hours) and morning breakfast goodies. Excellent location, just 1 property back from the beach. Would definitely stay again because it's probably the best deal in SB. Easy 10 minute walk to Stearns Wharf too!
