We stayed here for one night, one night only. Stopped in the bar to have a cocktail while they finished getting the room ready. My wife ordered a drink, the bartender made it for her then said he could do it better. When the bill came he charged for both drinks, even after he said he would remake it for...

I suggest the Lemon Tree hotel to all visitors foreign and national because it offers the most important five items--1) parking,2) a beautiful quiet spa like garden and 3) lovely pool area (like a lake), and a great restaurant indoors and outside-the "Crocodile". It is well appointed has great professional level staff at the front desk, and is also 5th...

Stayed here for two nights whilst exploring Santa Barbara. Rooms were big and modern, we had a view over the pool which was also big and had a jacuzzi. The on site restaurant is good, breakfast was lovely (although not included in our room rate, it was al a carte and delicious).

Good stay, very reasonable price. Dinning on site but we decided to go down town (The Grill Palace also very good). Very quiet and well appointed rooms. Would use again without hesitation and recommend this stay. On State street so very easy to find shop and resturants.

I rarely write reviews but had to write about this horrible hotel. This hotel is unbelievably overpriced. The rooms are dark and dingy and depressing. It is a very old hotel that slapped a coat of grey & yellow paint to make it look chic from the outside. Shower was broken. Walls were paper thin. Could hear neighbors on both...

Lemon Tree is a mid sized hotel with a pool & a restaurant. The rooms are spacious & well appointed. The ensuite is massive. The staff are friendly & informative. If you want to stay close to the water then Lemon Tree is not for you. However if peace & quiet are what you are looking for the Lemon Tree...
