"Studio with kitchen"
Our room was a studio with kitchen. It said for 4 people but there was only one king size bed. They did not have extra beds available. Fortunatly we had two small children with us so we could all sleep in it. Nice hotel, nice breakfast included, walking distance from the beach and harbour. overall niceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Villa Rosa in Santa Barbara, Ca."
We were told we had a cottage,,,I think of a cottage being a small house kinda?? ,it was upstairs, it was more like a very small old apartment with one bedroom and the living room turned into a bedroom, the bed was AWFUL, the fake fireplace didn't work, the bedside lamp had to be plugged in to work,, ,,,there was no place to hang clothes and no hooks […] in the bathroom,,,we ask them to fix these things and they didn't. The staff was great though, very nice, not their falut that things didn't get fixed,, we would not go there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Villa Rosa Inn"
1) Paint was coming off of the steps to the room. It looked tacky. 2) The curtain blinds in the kitchen were broken. Anyone outside could see inside, especially when we came out of the bathroom. 3) The bed squeaked non stop. I do not mean to be blunt, but my significant other would not make love to me because she was so embaressed how the bed squeaked. […] 4) Outside, there were old couched or furniture that should have been thrown away. The back yard looked like a garbage dump. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming Villa Rosa"
The hotel staff was really nice and accommodating since we were traveling with an infant. They had a wine and cheese happy hour where we mingled with some great people. Breakfast was also yummy with waffles, fruit, yogurt, cereal, bagels, etc. The hotel itself was a bit weathered but it only added to its charm. The cottage style room we had was perfect […] with a full kitchen and an extra outdoor dining area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Coziness by the beach"
The hotel has quaint rooms with the comfort of old CA and kitchenettes. They also provide a happy hour with nice snacks and wine to meet the other guests or just sit by the fireplace or poolside. A continental breakfast is also provided so they make it as welcoming as possible. Plus the location is terrific just a few feet off the beach and a block […] from State Street which is the main street up downtown Santa Barbara. The walls are a bit thin since it's an older building, but fans provided in the rooms helps to alleviate any noise from the neighbors. I'd stay here again for the reasonable price and fantastic location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A European Auberge In Beautiful Santa Barbara, CA"
I consider myself an experienced traveller and have stayed at many wonderful hotels, b&b's,inn's and auberges and this quaint inn is remarkable. Such character and the staff (Jessica) was amazing and took the extra time to accommodate my special requests without hesitatation or attitude. The breakfast and evening reception were equally offered with […] much attention to quality of service and low key flare. Simplistic charm and attention to detail is why I will be coming back time and time again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel but very old"
I think this hotel used to be an apartment building. The studio bedroom was separated from a full kitchen which included an ironing board. It was clean but all the bed lininens, towe3ls, furniture, was quite old and not attractive. The dresser was handpainted with Mexican art deco (very round and distorted women in old Mexican peasant dresses). Our […] room felt kind of spooky, but we were comfortable. The spa tub had signs warning of slippery tiles (and they were). The afternoon reception and morning breakfast was quite nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Bachelorette Party Weekend"
Most of the hotels in the area were booked so we decided on Villa Rosa. The outside is very cute, especially in comparison to the surrounding buildings and it is extremely close to the water. You definitely need to have a sense of humor to stay here though. We stayed in a two bedroom cottage that had some quirks. The decorations are odd and there wasn't […] a phone to call the front desk or anything. But everything was super clean and it served its purpose. The biggest issue was parking. You need permits to park on the street during the day but they won't give them to you until 10am the day of. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The web site displayed an old spanish home that had been transformed. The pool area was just what we expected, but the bungalow was bad. At first glance, ok, but then we really looked and the blinds were damaged, we got a view of trash dumpsters, the toilet seat was loose, the hot water faucet was loose causing water on the floor, spider webs on the […] lights and missing light bulbs. The bed was the worst. NOISEY, everytime we moved or got up the springs made sure everyone knew. the staff was nice but management has to know the short fall. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"disappointing evening reception"
Hello Villa Rosa: Although we enjoyed our room very much, I would say that (for the price of our accommodations) we expected better than Costco Jug wine(Yellowtail) at the evening reception. With excellent wineries within blocks of your hotel, you'd think you might feature their wines and offer tasting coupons. I was terribly disappointed in only this […] aspect of our stay.

"Never Stay in a "Cottage"!"
I just got back from staying in one of the "cottages" over the weekend. The worst place I have EVER stayed in SB. The decor is pre 20th century with random antiques everywhere and the "cottage" is an old apartment building with other units. This particular unit had a kitchen with dishes, which we used, but, when the maid came to "clean" our room each […] day, the dishes were not taken out, so they piled up for 4 DAYS. In addition to not taking the dirty dishes, the trash in each room was also not taken out, so we had 4 days worth of trash also. It seems the only thing the maid does is take out the dirty towels - not exactly cleaning... On top of the trash and dirty dishes in the kitchen, the "cottage" itself smelled like what I imagine musty, cat pee smells like - disgusting. It was even worse when we sat down on the sofa. My friends and I put towels on the couches to sit on because we were afraid we would smell if we came in direct contact. Next - the bathroom.... oh, the bathroom. At first glance, it looked nice and remodeled, but after you get in the shower, you realize the jets in the tub have not been cleaned since it was installed about 5 or 6 years ago. The jets were black with mold/mildew - DISGUSTING. The front desk attendants were terrible, to put it nicely. Not the sharpest tools in the shed and they were very difficult to try to carry on a conversation with, when they were actually around. I say this because each time I went to the front desk, I had to ring a bell and it took them a good 5 minutes to get from the kitchen, which was behind the front desk, to the desk itself. Once there, one of the girls was always sucking a honey packet and knew nothing about anything I asked her about. It was a very frustrating experience and would NEVER recommend this place to ANYONE, EVER. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"The bloom is off this Rose!"
We have stayed at Villa Rosa on a number of occasions through the years. Our rooms were always in the main building where the lobby is located.. Those rooms were always exceptionally nice; quaint and charming. They may still be so, but this time we were booked into a "cottage". Sounds charming and from our past experience at the hotel we expected nothing […] less. Wrong....the "cottage" is actually what was an apartment in a two-story building adjacent to the main building. So if you have any idea of a cottage being a cute little separate building, be forewarned. Our "cottage" was on the 2nd floor up a steep and narrow staircase. The outdoor hallway was in disrepair with peeling stucco. Good: the living room was large and the kitchen & bath had been updated. Bad: furnishings were bizarre, no notebook, visitor information, or TV channel listings. no wine glasses or coffee maker. The bath towels were like paper and there was no hair dryer. Bottom line is that the rooms in the main building may still be as charming as ever, but if you book into a "cottage" know that it is really an old apartment.. If this is your last resort for a room it wouldn't be the end of the world, but for sure it wouldn't serve as a nice romantic getaway. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Not what it appears to be... AT ALL"
I booked this hotel for a wedding nearly six months ago. At that time I called to confirm the room and was referred to a room included on the website. When I showed up last weekend, they completely had the wrong room -- and have given mine to somebody else. Instead I was put in a dirty room that they hadn't planned on renting for the night. The carpets […] were dirty and the overall room run down and NOT clean. I complained and they did absolutely NOTHING. I didn't expect much from the start but this is nothing as it appears to be.

"Villa Rosa Inn in Santa Barbara"
This Inn was quite cute from the outside, but it became clear this was just a facade. Upon our entering the hotel we first realized the cramped nature of the reception room and hoped that this was not a theme. When taken to our cottage we were shown another guest room by mistake of a paper error. The first room was much larger than the room we had to […] settle for. Don't get me wrong had I seen the room I settled in originally I would have been happy, but after seeing the greener pastures I had trouble settling for less. The activities that the Inn offers for comfort in the reception area are kind, there was a wine and cheese social the night we got there. The Inn had the feel of a converted set of apartments; from a small courtyard, to a small pool area, and a very full room. The cottage had a full kitchen along with a main bedroom/living room, but became to cramped with the dining table that was too big for the room, and an extra twin bed that did not need to be there. The room did provide great items of comfort however; a large walk-in closet, a faux fireplace, and a jacuzzi bathtub. The walls however are much like those in an apartment building, paper thin. I heard a full conversation between a father and mother about what they were going to for the day, lead me to question how much they could hear of my night. All in all it was sufficient and of the quality that i would expect more with a motel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Basic, but quiet and comfortable."
We stayed in Cottage #6 - the 2 "bedroom" and 2 queen bed cottage. Check- in and check-out was quick and easy, and the people at the front desk were courteous. The room itself was clean and well maintained. The decor, furnishings and building itself were decorated in an older, quaint and charming kind of way.The kitchenette and bathroom looked newly […] remodeled. The only kind of drawback was that this unit was advertised as a two bedroom cottage. It DID have two rooms, but there were literally only two rooms. (Not two bedrooms and a living room, as we had expected). I'd say that the layout was more like a one bedroom cottage that had a queen bed in the "living room". Very basic but comfortable. and quiet.

"Too loud to sleep!"
This is a quaint little hotel that could definately use more loving care. It is in a great location though...walking distance to beach, pier and State St. Although our room had been remodeled inside, the property is decrepit. It was very loud, so loud that we were exhausted the next day from lack of sleep. The matress was uncomfortably hard and the […] bed creaked loudly. We would not stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Villa was clean and nicely decorated. During the first night, the central heat would not work and the bedroom electric furnace also failed (so we only had the living room electric furnace for heat). Sometime after midnight, a circuit breaker tripped, causing some lights, the TV, and the living room furnace to fail. The desk manager had retired for […] the evening, so I had to call the emergency number, and the gentleman came to reset the breaker. The next day we were moved to a new villa, as the shower would barely get warm and the maintenance could not fix the heat in the original. In that room, a circuit breaker tripped twice, as the wiring could not handle the TV and the furnaces running in concurrence. Finally, during the night, the thermostat seemed to fail as the heat would not turn off and we roasted through the night. Overall, the staff was friendly and eager to help, the rooms look nice, but the building needs to be updated. For the price, I wouldn't go back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice position in town, needs a facelift thou"
Tired hotel in need of and upgrade, nice staff and very handy location, but needs a makeover.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is very quaint and in a great location in Santa Barbara. Very close to the pier. Our Cottage # 6 had two bedrooms and it's own private balcony over looking the garden. It is an old house with creaky floors which only added to the charm. The flight of stairs to the room could provide difficulty for seniors with luggage though. Most of the […] staff were lovely but we were treated somewhat rudely when checking in. Other guests arrived in the midst of our check in process and we were told that as they were tired from their trip, they would like to give them their keys first.(obviously return guests). We were tired from our trip too but it seemed not as important. In addition, while checking in we were told that the entire hotel had been booked for a private function so we were not allowed to enjoy the lobby even for the wine and cheese cocktail hour or use the pool area. I found this to be very unprofessional and there was no attempt to contact us ahead of time to let us know this was happening. Even though we asked, no refund or discount in our rate was offered in lieu of the inconvenience. So though the hotel was lovely I would not go back. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nie wieder dieses Hotel"
Trotz frühzeitiger und fixer Buchung einer Übernachtung für zwei Erwachsene und zwei Kinder im Alter von 9 und 17 Jahren wurde uns vor Ort lediglich ein Zimmer mit einem Bett zugewiesen. Für ein Beistellbett wurden 28 Dollar verlangt. Der 9 jährige musste im Bett zwischen den Eltern schlafen. Trotz mehrfacher Rückfrage und jeweiliger Zusage wurde das […] Beistellbett nicht im Zimmer aufgestellt. So dass schließlich gegen 22 Uhr das Beistellbett von mir und meinem Sohn persönlich in das Zimmer getragen wurde. Gleiches gilt für die notwendige Bettdecke und Handtücher. Im Wäschelager fand die Hotelmitarbeiterin nach längerer Suche lediglich eine, satt der benötigten zwei zusätzlichen Bettdecken. Aus all diesen Gründen ist das Hotel nicht zu empfehlen. Im übrigen sind die Zimmer abgewohnt und renovierungsbedürftig. Die gute Lage des Hotels in Strandnähe, der hübsche offene Kamin im Empfangsbereich und die aufwendige Grünanlage im und um das Hotel können einen kompetenten und engagierten Service, ein fehlerfrei arbeitendes Reservierungsprogramm und ein zeitgemäß ausgestattestes Zimmer nicht ersetzen.
