Very good 8.0
Our room was nicely appointed and newly renovated. The outside of the hotel could use some sprucing up. A little far from the action on State Street, but in a quieter residential section.

Hotel was nice. Beds were comfortable. Superficially clean, trash found under beds. Bathrooms need updating

I can’t tell you about my stay because I couldn’t even stay at this hotel. They said you have to be 21 years old or older to check in because of alcohol restrictions but you failed to disclose that information before my girlfriend and I booked. Luckily another hotel was open and was cheaper. We will not be using this site again!

safe shelter amid Corona Virus
Lemon Tree staff and setting has been wonderful to my brother, who has found himself in transition in his move to Santa Barbara amid the COVID-19 outbreak for the past several weeks. The space is beautifully landscaped (with aromatic lemon and other citrus) and the Crocodile cafe has been a life saver for us.

Very good 8.0
I wanted to get my hubby out of town for a night away in Santa Barbara. We are both very familiar with the area. The location of this Hotel is fantastic. If we go back to this location it will be to enjoy the restaurant. The service was much less than I expected from a decent place like this. When I entered, I felt like I was intruding. When it was time to check out, 15 min before checkout time-even with the do not disturb on our door- a worker knocked on our door and asked aren't you checking out. When we checked out - front desk clerk did not even ask how our stay was. Poor, poor customer service.

Great place
Loved that all the rooms had a balcony. The rooms were spacious and it was a short drive to state street where there was several restaurants. I would definitely stay here again
