    We stayed here as we based through Santa barbara on a 4 week road trip. In a decent location with good parking. Wifi was hit and miss. Very clean room comfy bed felt very safe. Eat at a place just down the road as I don't think it sold food? Would recommend for an overnight / few days stay. Didn't... More

    The Orange Tree Inn is a simple motel in a nice location in Santa Barbara, a very expensive city in which to stay. We got an excellent rate online and found the motel to be fine for our wants. It is not a luxury motel and does not have breakfast nor does it have good WIFI. Our room was very... More

    We stayed here for a night in early Feb and when we arrived in our room, at first glance, it looked fine. The first thing I needed to do was to work on the laptop and needed a small app before I started. I couldn't get the laptop or the iPad to even see the network let alone connect to... More

    A great little hotel/inn/motel! We stopped for one night on our PCH trip and I cannot fault it. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was immaculate and far larger than we had expected, we had a lovely Terrace to sit out on and the pool was great. Would definitely recommend and return!

    This place was the most quiet of all the places we stayed on our trip. Very comfortable bedding, unique room, good value. Unimpressed by the staff at this place but I guess you can't have it all. Would definitely recommend and/or stay again.

    We stayed here one night, arriving from San Diego via Amtrak. We walked to the hotel from the Santa Barbara Amtrak station. Our room, #124, was nice, clean, had everything we needed for our stay. Had a little patio, also. The desk clerk was very friendly and very helpful! We asked him for a recommendation for a casual, "no frills"... More

    We enjoyed our stay at the Orange Tree Inn. It's a pretty much "no frills" kind of place. It was clean and comfortable. The bathrooms are very small, but adequate. Toilet, very small sink, and a shower. The property has been maintained well. The management is very courteous and helpful. There is no breakfast and, from reading the other reviews,... More

    The room is very basic, staff is very friendly and it is right on State Street in Santa Barbara. However, it is around 40 mins walking from the beach and it was overpriced for what you get. They also do not offer breakfast so I don't know why they charge around 180usd for the room. I guess Santa Barbara hotels... More

    Clean and modern room, good service. Some outdoor access, very appreciated ! Expensive for the location, but not that much considering prices in Santa Barbara. You'll need a car to get to the action and the beach.
