This is an excellent small, boutique hotel off the beaten path with lots of charm, coziness, comfort, serenity, and great attentive staff catering to your needs. The location is ideal, close to the beach, pier, shopping, restaurants, highway, train station and more.
You won't be disappointed because they have thought of even the smallest details to make your stay so pleasureable.

Bed was way too soft and curved, Room was badly designed, you feel like in a bunker. Very bad sleep.
Jet tub was ok.
Does not worth 300$ per night. At most 139$.

Rooms were gorgeous, the extras included in the rooms were above and beyond the typical, the staff is very friendly, the location is a short walk to the pier, the continental breakfast was better than average, the building itself is beautiful, and situated in a residential neighbourhood, so if you like quiet at night, this place is perfect. And the off-season rates are close to 50% off peak travel time.

Spent a few days in SB to visit relatives and enjoy the area. The pictures on the website do not do justice to the rooms. We stayed in a "cottage' which was one of several rooms located in converted homes and apartments on the property. The finishishes, furnishings, and decor were exceptional. A whirlpool bath, gas fireplace, and balcony make for a very relaxed and enjoyable stay. Breakfast was a nice quiche in addition to fresh fruit and bakery goods. Very few rooms in this area actually have a water view. This is a block or so from the waterfront and well worth the walk. The only downside was no pool or hot tub.

First impression of of our stay in the Santa Rosa was wonderful. After the first night, we were disappointed. I thought by upgrading we would have a decent mattress. What we ended up with was a mattress that was worn out, sunken in and not leveled. My back hurt for days. The mattress was changed and I'm pretty sure it will end up in another room for someone else. Good luck with that. Two of the four jets worked in the whirlpool tub. Parking is pretty scarce on the lot. If you have to park on the street make sure you read the signs. On the other hand, the bike loaner is cool, the location is great and it is quiet.

The mattress you slept on was manufactured in 2008. It is a top-of-the-line Serta Euro-Top Mattress. As you note, we did replace the mattress for you and I trust your second night was more comfortable.

We were visiting for our honeymoon and the hotel was fantastic. It was very clean and was in an excellent location just a couple of blocks from the beach. The staff was very friendly and made our visit very nice. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean and cozy. It was evident that the ownership takes pride in their establishment because everywhere we turned we could see that it was clean and well maintained. They had bikes that we could use to ride along the beach and DVDs that we could watch in the evening. We couldn't have asked for a better place to spend our special occasion.
