We weren't here for long but did a great job as a budget motel. It's not posh but in a good location and would stay again. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Nice pool area as well. Santa Barbara is a great place to visit and this motel is only a short walk/taxi from the centre.

A little way out of town, but easy to find. Room was reasonably spacious and clean (room for five) and the beds were comfy, but it was very brown! Dark and depressing brown decor, with a dated bathroom. It wasn't a place I wanted to spend any time. Had very little dealing with any staff, but the guy on reception... More

No fridge, no net curtains (so if you opened your curtains people could see in if you're on the groundfloor), dirty carpet and the ants were everywhere. The pool needed an upgrade. No breakfast and our outside area was in a dark passageway by some junk. A glorified hostel. One of the worst places I've ever stayed in America! Location... More

We came here for a few nights, on the Santa Barbara stop of our big California road trip. I booked a mixture of motels and AirBNBs for our whole trip, trying to keep the price down as much as possible for our family of two adults and one kid. The Orange Tree Inn was one of the cheaper accommodation options... More

First of all, Santa Barbara is lovely, charming and very welcoming. And this Hotel/Motel met us with open warmth. The room was good, parking was free, And price was more than reasonable. All we asked for!

This was an excellent motel. The rooms were quiet spacious and well furnished. Interactions with staff were always very positive and upbeat. We did walk to the beach from the motel and it was a lovely walk as you go through the main area with lots of shops and quality eateries however it is a lengthy walk!

Most accommodation in Santa Barbara is pricey and the closer you are to downtown, the higher the prices are exponentially. This is very comfortable and in 45 minutes, you could comfortably walk to the beach. 30 minutes and you're in the heart of downtown. There's free parking and wifi and the rooms are fairly quiet considering the proximity to the... More

Great value. No real frills but I wasn't looking for any, just a roof over my head. I didn't have time to check our the pool so I can't judge that but overall it was clean and reasonably priced. Very spacious. No bugs.

This motel offers simple straight rooms for a place to sleep. And that's more or less it. There is an ok swimmingpool (heated I guess) and that's the feature of this place. It's fair priced and pretty close to downtown Santa Barbara.
