She allowed us to view the room prior to booking and gave us a great deal. We booked a queen size bed room with a jacuzzi and shared patio. The room was small and quaint with a... More

The Villa Rosa is a charming and romantic inn. They offer a wonderful wines, cheese, and crackers in the late afternoon. The rooms are clean and feel like a bed and breakfast. The inn is located near shops and restaurants. It is a sweet little inn for those seeking to get away for some romance.

The breakfast was very good, with make your own waffles and the wine in the afternoon is a nice treat. Room was spacious, but... More

Location was great! Right next to beach and the wharf. Easy walk to State street and major nightlife. Inn was small but the service was great. Staff was very friendly and rooms are unique but charming. You get attention that you wont at other places, rooms can use an upgrade but has a comfortable feel. Staff made sure we were... More

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.
