We visit Santa Barbara often, but this was our first stay at Villa Rosa (we usually stay at Marina Beach Motel which we thoroughly love). We decided to stay here because the last time we were in SB we were walking by and it looked really nice. So we opted for something new this time around. The location is nice,...

We booked and room and when we arrived they had "given the room" to someone else with the same last name as ours. At first the receptionist gave us a little attitude "well they already checked in and paid for the room". We traveled 7 hours there for a wedding and they finally did agree to give us another room,...

The rooms are still dingy and the furnishings well used. The bathroom only had a very small shower (not that clean) with a window overlooking the...

Unfortunately, we won't be back!! We visit Santa Barbara regularly and decided to try the Villa Rosa Inn. We booked on line and when we arrived, we were offered a room we did not request. The room was dark and dingy. We accepted another room only to find the room poorly serviced and maintained. The carpet was stained, the walls...

We booked room 12 online for 4 adults. The room was described as one of their larger rooms. Upon check-in we were given the keys to room 4 and was told that it was the room we booked. The room was extremely small so we asked if there was another room available. With a little attitude, the receptionist took us...

We travelled in to Santa Barbara to get married after flying in to LA from the UK. The hotel its self is not like the sterile chain hotels such as Hilton and Sheraton where you could be anywhere in the world. If you want to be in a block of 900 other rooms then this isnt the place for you...Check-in...
