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. Parking on site.... More

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....

This place is well located at the top of State Street and just off the freeway. A decent amount of generous pitched parking was available. Reception staff were efficient and friendly. A handy Seven Eleven was good for getting water etc. A ten minute walk and you were in State Street proper with the restaurants and boutiques. The room was... More

Nice looking room that was spacious and clean, however, there was no fridge and wifi signal was quite poor. The shower head was not ideal, spraying more like a single jet stream. Friendly staff at reception. Happy with the location as there are shops and restaurants to look at most of the way down to the beach. Lots of free... More

My friend and I had a GREAT time staying at the Orange Tree Hotel! I regret not remembering one of the clerks name, but he was extremely friendly and helpful, showing us a map of Downtown Santa Barbara right off the bat, explaining the must-sees & excellent places to eat. The rooms were cozy & clean. The location of the... More
