Pleasantly Surprised

Would recommend Mon, Aug 26, 2013
The accommodations were quaint and clean. We were there to experience the funk zone and it was a perfect location for that. The evening cheese and wine, and the breakfast was far better than I would have expected. We had a great stay.

Villa Rosa - Mason Cottages

Would not recommend Thu, Aug 15, 2013
Unfortuantely, the cottage assigned was not a guest house as we had assumed but an adjacent building of apartments. Other than not having to do our own bed there was no feeling of being in a hotel or a B&B. It was more like staying a friends apartment with the noise and lack of any hospitality. No phones. If you are guaranteed a room in the main building/hotel, it's worth it otherwise you could do better for the money.

Quaint but...

Would not recommend Mon, Jun 24, 2013
Very close to the beach and a reasonable walk to the town center. Lovely mission style but needs maintenance. Lacked some of the amenities you expect of more modern facilities in this price range. Staff was very attentive and pleasant.

Old hotel

Would not recommend Mon, May 6, 2013
The hotel was old and almost looked as if it was an apartment complex converted into a hotel. Nice location however, extremely let down when I arrived.

Very disappointing

Would not recommend Mon, Aug 13, 2012
Location is good but the hotel itself was unclean and old. Our room was a tiny and cramped two-story with a loft. The room had a musty smell and the couch had visible stains and rips in it. The tiny loft could fit a bed and nothing else. The overall feeling was gross and the only reason we stayed because it was for one night and we couldn't find anything else at the time. For over $250/night, it was a definite rip off and I will never stay here again.

Read the signs!

Would not recommend Mon, Jul 23, 2012
We asked to check in early as we had a wedding to get to by 3:30 PM. This was at noon and we were assured that our room would be ready by 1:00. When we returned another woman was at the desk who I later learned was a manager. She was very reluctant to let us have the room but called the original woman we had dealt with and eventually let us in the room. We expressed our gratitude to her and were relieved that we could freshen up after an eight hour drive and get to the wedding on time. But this is where things went bad. We cleaned up and when we went to the car to go to the wedding we had a parking ticket. My husband went to talk to the manager and her attitude was that it was our problem. I, a few minutes later, confronted her, asking her why she hadn't given us a parking pass and since parking on the street was apparently a dangerous proposition (eager meter maids), we should have been warned and taken care of by the hotel. Their lot was full. It is tiny and certainly not big enough to accomodate all their guests. She, the manager, became rude. To quote her exactly, "Don't you Americans know how to read signs?" I was appalled! I shot back, "What do you mean Americans? Aren't you American? Don't talk to me about nationalities. I'm talking about an expensive parking ticket that should have been avoided if you had done your job and given us a pass to park on the street." She then told me what a concession she had made by letting us have our room early. Again, I told her I appreciated that but we were talking about passes and tickets. I asked her if she now wanted me to kiss her feet? I admit I was angry and left with the issue unresolved. A person of her demeanor should not be in a service industry that deals with the public. She was not gracious, helpful, or pleasant from the minute we met her. She was flustered, confusing, and in the end, rude and bigoted. It was a lovely hotel, perfectly situated one half block from the beach but I will never stay there again, and I will make sure as many people as I can reach will know of her rudeness.

Cool ocean breeze so no ac needed. Wine and cheese was great along with breakfast in the morning. The room was a little pricey but it was fiesta weekend.

Villa Rosa, Santa Barbara

Would not recommend Sun, Jul 17, 2011
Very disappointing bed and breakfast hotel. The highlight was the friendly lady who checked us in, everything else was unacceptable including morning/breakfast staff. The room and common areas were dirty. Towels and sheets were thin and cheap. There was a kitchen in the room but not one dish or even coffee cup in the cupboards. We would never return.

Wouldn't recommend

Would not recommend Tue, Jul 5, 2011
No airconditioning at this hotel meant that the window had to be open during the night to keep cool enough to sleep.....the problem with this is the noise outside from shipping things...."horns, beeps etc" meant a bad nights sleep. Why in this day an age does a hotel have no A/C?

wonderful

Would recommend Mon, Jun 20, 2011
Location was excellent.We could walk everywhere or get on the shuttle. Hotel was cozy like a private hacienda (home). Bed was new and very comfortable. Towels in bath were VERY nice Hosts were nice. Wine and cheese was very well done. Breakfast was good! There was not a thing we could ask for to make our stay better except more time to stay.
