Villa Rosa Inn Hotel Review: For a relaxing and laidback Santa Barbara stay, Villa Rosa Inn won't disappoint. Though it lacks the resort feel of the area's larger hotels, its limited footprint allows the staff to provide personalized and intimate service. This eighteen-room property boasts a prime location --- just 84 steps from the beach, within walking distance of Stearns Wharf, half an hour from the wine country and two hours from Los Angeles. The building used to serve as off-campus housing for UCSB Riviera students during the winter months, but it has been open to the public as Villa Rosa Inn since 1982. With conference facilities, corporate amenities, complimentary deluxe continental breakfast and complimentary wine, evening port, sherry and hors d’oeuvres, as well as an on-site pool and Jacuzzi, the inn pampers in a variety of ways. It does not stop there, however. Special requests are welcome. For example, providing roses and chocolates in your room for the perfect nightcap to a romantic beachside evening.
