This was a one night stay for our own piece of mind. With out approaching wedding, we wanted to know that the hotel would be a good place for family to book. They had good rates, and a convenient location for folks to get a ride or walk to our venue. The staff didn't disappoint. It's good for us, so... More

It was a couple of blocks out of main shopping tourist area but we just drove downtown as we had a car so was easy. ( parking a little hard to find) The motel was great it was clean roomy & the pool was heated so the kids swam still after our day out. We ate at a steakhouse the... More

Super clean, quiet, excellent service. Room is spacious with a vaulted ceiling. Beds are primo for a good night's sleep. Personal, shaded patio made it enjoyable to sit outside. Location is a couple of miles from the Earl Warren Show Grounds with an easy drive to shopping on State Street and fine dining. Great value for the money! Am coming... More

Check-in staff Eduardo was great and helpful with every little detail that was asked of him. This hotel is a little hidden gem that is cool for all budget travellers like me. It is located about a 20-30 minute walk to the restaurants in the main downtown area. A 10 minute drive will get you to Stearn's wharf. The only... More

Orange Tree Inn (OTI) is a five minute walk from downtown Santa Barbara. The staff is both helpful and friendly. I needed both a taxi and a late checkout. After asking they gave me permission to extend my stay by two hours at no extra cost. The rooms are well appointed making for a comfortable visit. I will stay here... More

We came here for a wedding at the Santa Barbara Women's Club. This hotel was very close to both the venue and the downtown area. However I felt that it was a bit too simple for the price I paid. It had no refrigerator, no decorations on the walls and the bathroom was tiny.

Check in was quick and easy. The first room we were given had a problem with the toilet flush, we were quickly relocated without a problem. Our room was clean and functional providing perfect overnight accommodation for our road trip to San Francisco

We booked via booking.com and paid $85. Great spot on State street, 15 minute walk to downtown. Our room was on ground floor adjacent to the pool. Looks recently renovated, clean and spacious with king bed which was really comfy. Enjoyed having real glasses and mugs as opposed to plastic. Coffee making facilities in room. Nice shower.

The Orange Tree Inn is Santa Barbara on the cheap. It’s a few blocks from the toniest parts of Santa Barbara’s State Street. The neighborhood is primarily residential. This hotel, motel rather, has a television in the room, wifi (ask), unheated pool, free parking and coffee at the front desk. The desk attendants are pleasant and knowledgeable about the area....
