Lovely staff, expensive breakfast. Great price for an average place. HVAC blows directly on your bed. Parking is free. Good place to spend one or two nights in Santa Barbara. Very friendly and helpful staff!

Nice modern rooms with AC, patios, comfy beds, clean, great service and staff. Love the restaurant and bar. The food here is absolutely perfect. Heated pool and jacuzzi is great. Location is ideal for Santa Barbara.

The first time we stayed at this hotel we used a groupon or a living social. We checked in and they put us in the most god awful room in the hotel--room 110. I refused to sleep in that room and they offered us another room which was much better. When we checked out we noticed that they had charged...

The Lemon Tree Inn has one of the most Beautiful settings in Santa Barbara. Our spacious well equipped rooms are always competitively priced. We offer many amenities that are comparable with 4-5 Star properties, but we are a 3.5 Star property that is very clean and well maintained. It is unfortunate when we have an unhappy guest, but our friendly...

This hotel was a great surprise. Rooms are nice and clean with a big terrace. The lemon trees are actually all around this place. The beds are more than comfortable. There is a spacious pool outside the motel; I can recommend this place.

Comfortable room, good bathroom and large sink. There is a safe in the room and bath products are available. There was enough space for four people and our luggage (a lot!). The pool is very good and we really used the pool area. The restaurant was also good but the dish is not to be shared - like in other...

We stayed here for one night whilst driving up the Pacific Coast Highway from LA to San Francisco. As it was Labor Day weekend in the US, most hotels in Santa Barbara had a minimum two-night stay policy and the Lemon Tree Inn was one of a few exceptions to this. It being a public holiday also meant the room...

I only stayed one night, but was pleasantly surprised to find a polite and attentive staff greeting me and quickly directing me to my clean and spacious room. My room had a small patio with table and chair next to a garden like area that is steps away from the pool. Overall it's a peaceful, quiet setting. It's on State...

I stayed here 2 nights while visiting my niece and her family. I choose this hotel because it was close to her. It is located on a busy street, but noise was not a problem. The bed was comfortable & the bathroom adequate. However, I don't know when it was last updated because it seem "dated." There was kind of...

Lovely hotel in a great city. Santa Barbara is a great place to visit and this hotel was well situated. Smart and well presented, with a good bar and restaurant. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. Shake we only had time for an overnight stay.
