I stayed here for two nights in early June 2015. I arrived via the southbound Amtrak Coast Starlight, which was to arrive in Santa Barbara at 6:35 pm. Well, it was almost 6 hours late so I had to find this B&B in the middle of night......on foot. I called earlier from the train to say I would be late... More

I stayed here once before with friends so my husband and I stopped here on our way up the coast. It is a cute Spanish style Inn that feels like a house. The common areas include sofas and a fireplace with a great wine and cheese spread in the evening. The room is very clean but the decor is a... More

This Inn is only 1mins walk from the Pier. It's old world Spanish style. The room was comfortable with a fire place and 2 armchairs. The guest lounge had a log fire and was beautifully furnished in period style. There was a pool and hot tub. Guests are invited to happy hour every evening where we enjoyed chatting with other...

Absolutely loved our stay in this quaint little inn. The place is very cute and accessible to the beach. We had the split level room and it was very comfortable for the five of us. We used the place to get ready for a wedding and the photos of the interior and exterior of the inn came out gorgeous. Only... More

Looking forward to a wonderful Santa Barbara CA trip and the fabulous Spanish Fiesta Days, my daughter and I booked 3 nights at the Villa Rosa Inn. It looks charming from the street but what a surprise once you have your accommodations. Our room, which was super expensive, was in the old part of the Inn apparently old apartments from... More

There are a lot of dolls in a glass showcase in the lobby. At first I thought it's cute but little by little I realized it is like a scary movie.old paintings with people staring at you like if they're gonna come alive in the middle of the night, knock on your door and come kill you. We ran out... More

We reserved and pre-paid for a "Deluxe Queen Room" and when we arrived, there were none available. Instead of offering us an upgrade, the management was grumpy and curt and put us in a nice room but a lesser one than the one we reserved. The location was amazing...just seconds from the pier and beach and the inn was charming.... More

If you're looking for something more than a cookie-cutter hotel room, this is your place. The staff was friendly and eager to please. We met Dario, the owner, as we were leaving the next morning. We were impressed with all his antique and original furnishings that he has collected from around the world. The Continental breakfast was ample and well... More

The pictures are quiet deceiving. The hotel is very old and worn out and doors don't lock very well and the linens are cheap and yellow. The hotel pool and jacuzzi felt yucky and the walls are so thin you can hear everything. EVERYTHING. The room smelled really bad and musky and I couldn't wait to get out of this... More
