"Santa Barbara weekend."
Nice location to ocean. The tiles could use some spot cleaning.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely Inn. Perfect location"
An inn within walking distance to the beach and the wharf. Longer walk to downtown. Neighborhood feel. Room very comfortable. No coffee maker, but a nice continental breakfast provided, along with a wine and cheese evening.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfy, Cozy, Affordable and close to everything!"
This place was perfect for a relaxing getaway. We were greeted by very friendly staff and shown to our room and parking. It was not as clean as I would have liked but was still was very quaint, quirky and homey, which is just my style. Being one block from the beach and a 5-10 minute walk to shops and restaurants downtown was ideal. I would definitely […] go back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"the Villa Rosa Inn in Santa Barbara"
this hotel has a lot of character, and is located steps from the beach and State str. The room #5 was very large with a small kitchen complete with dishes, which makes it very easy to have a snack or a lite late dinner. The staff is very friendly. They clean so well that they throw away the used soap and shampoo everyday, which I mentioned to them not […] to do that. The bedding could use an upgrade, like nice down comforters, otherwise very comfortable place ! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming European-stye hotel"
We've stayed at many places in Santa Barbara, some good, some bad, but this is the first one we've decided we'll stay at again. Maybe exclusively. The lobby smells like roses when you walk in, a quaint, comfortable B&B feel. At breakfast and happy hour in the lobby, we met interesting people from around the world and had lovely conversations. We stayed […] in a cottage room, which is an adjacent apartment building turned into hotel rooms. Apparently, the rooms in the hotel are a bit nicer, but the cottage rooms are far more spacious. We were not disappointed at all with the condition of the room. We didn't use the full kitchen in the cottage room, but knowing it's there might change our plans a bit next time. Be warned... it has character, it's old, and it has a european feel. If you're looking for a five-star hotel chain, with everything new and perfect, this isn't the place. But the staff is extremely helpful and friendly, and there's a charm that we're looking forward to returning to. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"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
"Villa Rosa in Santa Barbara, CA"
The hotel is old, and unfortunately, smells old. The photos on the website are misleading; our room didn't look anything whatsoever like that. What a disappointment.Genuine 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

"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
Vi hadde ett rom med kjøkken, bad og soverom. Det var skittent på gulvet og sengetøyet var skittent. Det luktet kjemikalier og gammelt på rommet. Det har en gang vært åpent i mellom vårt rom og det ved siden av og for å skjule dette har de bare puttet ett skap foran åpningen. Så det hørtes ut som familien som bodde vegg i vegg med oss sto inne på rommet […] med oss. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt und die nette Atmosphäre genossen. Das haus erinnert ein wenig an englisches bed und breakfast. Die Zimmer sind geschmackvoll und zweckmäßig eingerichtet.

Som helhet bra, dock lite slitna rum, fick byta pga trasig toalett. Hade lite trädgård utanför, härligt men borde skötas om mer för ett bättre intryck. Utmärkt internet.

The location of this hotel is one of the best in Town! The only drawback is the reception staff (manager especially) who really should work with something else. The pool area and reception area are great. Rooms are a bit worn and don't stay in Cottage 2 if someone is in 1. Sound proofing does not exist!Genuine Expedia 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.
