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

We spent only one night at the Orange Tree Inn. It was a good experience. It is close to main restaurants, cafes and other nice attractions in Santa Barbara Downtown. The bathroom was nice and clean, with a good shower. The beds were comfortable and the AC worked well. The wifi was not great, but it worked. They also have... More

Easy access to the 101 freeway. We walked to the Mission and downtown at night. We drove to the wharf and beach, but it's walkable as well. Very clean and comfortable. Order hotel without many amenities, but recently remodeled. Great value for the price. Not a fancy hotel, but a good basic place.

Very noisy room. Heated pool not well heated & no hot water in bathroom. We told the front desk & he said he'd check the boiler. Two phone calls more & we were finally told we could use another room for a shower and be given a small discount. No discount was ever given and we have been continually lied... More
