    Peaceful, nice landscapes and nice pool

    Hot tub jets were not working the best, restaurant pricey, and no fridge or microwave

    The room was a decent size. The pool was nice.

    The bed linens were old. The bed was old and as a result, not very firm. The cleaning carts make a ton of noise/rumbling when moving around so we were awaken at 7am by the sounds of carts and people scrambling above. The facilities are run down - the restroom door was rotted at the bottom, the toilet was small and squeelee on flush. Based on my experience, the hotel is 2 star not 3.

    Great place to stay

    You walk out of your room to a lush landscape, just a few steps away you can sit outside & enjoy great food & cocktails. I was only staying one night to catch an early flight- we didn’t have to leave the property!

    Bathroom is really outdated, especially toilets. Peeling paint in bathroom, low light.

    Great place. Would come again.

    The inner courtyard area with all the palm trees made a very nice view out the balcony window. Bed was firm and comfortable.

    Can't walk to downtown but we knew that going in.

    Great stay!

    The room was very nice, lush green patio setting was a major plus. The only downside is the location if you don't have a car. It's not really walking distance to anything central. Otherwise, great value for the money.

About Lemon Tree Inn

Overview

With a long history, the Lemon Tree Inn offers a classic California experience. Located on the site of the state’s very first motel operation, the inn showcases Santa Barbara in fantastic fashion.

The current hotel was originally built in 1960 and, while it has been updated several times since then, the 96-room inn still pays homage to its roots in the 60s. However, the rooms still offer plenty of modern amenities, including air conditioning, LDC televisions with over 60 channels, and high-speed wireless Internet service. As upgrades to the standard rooms, the Lemon Tree Inn also features deluxe and poolside rooms, as well as suites with private patios for enjoying the sunshine.

The tropical courtyard is a perfect spot to relax. Plenty of lounge chairs, a heated swimming pool, and hydro-spa offer a nice and quiet haven. With an open kitchen so diners can see all the action, the Crocodile Restaurant has a standing menu as well as a rotating daily selection to take advantage of the fantastic Santa Barbara produce. Guests looking to indulge in something sparkly can visit Bijou Lemon jewelry boutique.

Guests visiting Santa Barbara are in for a treat. As a hub for northern California winemaking, guests can easily set out to visit plenty of tasting rooms and vineyard. Of course, when the weather is warm, a visit to the beaches are always in order. Any of these attractions and more is easily accessible from the Lemon Tree Inn.

A 1960s retro vibe with plenty of comfort and an ideal location make the Lemon Tree Inn a great option for visitors to Santa Barbara.
