We enjoyed our several days at the Lemon Tree. Lovely grounds and pool, set about a mile from the main downtown on State Street, but quite close to the Natural History Museum, Botanical Garden, and the Old Mission. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the staff uniformly helpful. Breakfasts were large, but we did think that $4 for a...

We were in Santa Barbara this weekend to attend a memorial service for a dear friend and needed a place for only one night, on a Saturday night. I chose this hotel for the reviews here and also my love for lemon trees! We arrived a little earlier than the normal check-in and our room was ready. We had a...

This place is a Santa Barbarian rarity. I've been visiting family in Santa Barbara for nearly 30 years now, and nobody has ever had much luck finding so much bang for your buck as I did at the Lemon Tree.

We were driving back to SF from LA and decided to make a stop in Santa Barbra, so booked this very last minute. Not exactly what we expected, but it was clean and reasonably priced. Wouldn't really want to stay here for more than 2 nights though, think there are better options if you have more time to book. However,...

We had a great surprise with this hotel. Nice clean and comfortable room . I hope they will take a decision to renovate the bathroom,and then it will be perfect. Free wifi all over the hotel. Good option when you are staying in Santa Barbara, great value for money.

Stayed at the Lemon Tree for one night on a visit to Santa Barbara. I had picked the hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews which were all good. The reviews were correct. The hotel is very pleasant, the room clean, everything as it should be. Just what I wanted.

Lemon Tree was a very nice stopover in Santa Barbara, surprisingly well apportioned, clean, spacious, and super comfortable. The restaurant was also a surprise, truly excellent food, good selection, at a fair price. Hotel staff were professional and helpful

We stayed one night at the Lemon tree on our first day in the US. After a long flight from Melbourne, the Lemon Tree inn was the perfect place to rest ahead of our road trip to San Francisco. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms clean and the beds very comfortable. As we were pretty tired, we...

The room was very nice, liked the way each room had a private patio with a view of either the gardens or the pool area. Staff very helpful and accommodating. Would defintely stay here again, it is located within a few minutes of downtown and the harbor.
