The hotel has a great location at the corner of Mission and State St. You are located 5 minutes away from the old mission and easy access to the freeway. The rooms are well kept and modern. Very clean and comfortable for a night

I read reviews on booking dotcom and they were ok but this place is not. It's terrible and I do not recommend. First, when we arrived at 130 pm, they clearly had cleaned rooms available but told us they did not and said we had to come back at 3 pm. When we returned, we were given room 201, directly...

I wasn't sure what to expect with this accommodation as I had read mixed reviews. We only needed 1 night of accommodation in Santa Barbara, but it was a Saturday night and our options were limited for a family of 5. The motel was easy to find and located only a short walk from downtown. The room itself was great,...

I stayed at the Orange Tree Inn 3 weeks ago and on going to bed I found that there were ants nesting in the mattress. The staff found me another room and told me to speak to reception in the morning to sort out a refund as an apology. I went to reception in the morning and was told that...

Hotel is quite modern, good equipped. Staff is friendly and skilled. Room was clean and very comfortable with small private terrace. We had room with direct access to the pool. Pool is big and deep. That was great!

I was really happy to be able to stay here again. The grounds are nice, and rooms look like they were recently redone. Overall this is a very pleasant place to stay. Checkin was easy and the staff very helpful. I don't know when, but I would really like to stay here again.

Parking was free at this Motel which was great, one thing we did not need to worry about. Rooms are a little bit dated, a lot of black leather going and generally felt very dark...great that we had a fridge and coffee making facilities though. We had a room which had some double doors that brought us out right by...

This was a really nice motel which was clean and tidy and well maintained. It's on the State road which is the main street for Santa Barbara and goes all the way to the front. It's about 45 mins from the motel. The hotel is also only a couple of minutes from highway 101. Note that our room dos not...

Windows don't fully close, so you can hear everything. Had an Air Condition machine on the roof above our room and was very difficult to sleep with the noise. The bathroom seemed that was bombarbed... was very old and seemed destroyed. It is quite far for the center (30-40mins walk).

I really liked this place upon arrival, and questioned why it only had two stars. Later in the evening we noticed there were ants all over the floor, although we hadn't left any food out to attract them. We could not get a comfortable nights sleep due to this as they ended up all over us..
