We had a Great stay at Orange tree inn. It was a very Nice place i got suprised when it look better than on the pictures. Clean room , good Wifi, Nice pool, Nice tv , and a general Nice room with good free parking. The only complaint though was that there were some noise. But can recommend for others.

This is a lovely motel and not massively expensive for Santa Barbara. It is about a mile away from the Main Street of restaurants. Only problem was the morning infestation with ants and the rubbish that had previously been left on our balcony. When we mentioned this on check out, the guy was apologetic and said management would be in... More

Good value for the money, nice people, they try to please...landscape and decor reflect nature, color , flowers and spirit of life, very cheerful. A perfect stay centrally located for me. Would be nice if they provided a lounge chair in a large room as we had for reading

Spent one night. Check in was good, friendly staff. Room arrangement was fine, comfy bed, enough spaces. Negative is bathroom, not functional. Good location but need a car to go around SB. I recommend this place for short stay.

We chose the Orange Tree as an affordable place to stay and we were not disappointed. We stayed for 2 nights in early October at the start of our 3 week road trip and enjoyed it so much, that we returned at the end of our holiday for another 3 nights! The rooms were large, bright and nicely furnished, with... More

This hotel was nothing to write home about. It is nothing more than an "updated" Motel6, Travelodge or whatever it may have been in a previous life. The room was average, with a small bathroom and a sink which could barely accommodate 2 toothbrushes and a tube of toothpaste. Our room had a patio, but it was sandwiched between the... More

The room had lots of bugs on the floor and in the bathroom, the room itself was tacky and not particularly clean. If the room was cheap then some of this could have been forgiven, however given that the price wasn't inexpensive we were very unimpressed.

The bathroom was full of ants. There were holes in the curtains. We had to request that our beds be made at 3PM. Amenities are non-existent. No service to speak of. Not even inexpensive. Will definitely never, ever be back.
