My boyfriend and I made last-minute plans to go to Santa Barbara during President's day weekend. Most of the hotels I checked required a two-night minimum stay, and we were only planning to stay for one night. The hotels that did not have a two-night minimum were booked. I called Lemon Tree Inn to see if there was anything available for one night, and to my surprise they had availability for one night. I booked it immediately for $165 - a decent rate considering it was a long weekend. When I arrived, they honored the AAA rate, and I got a discount. The rooms feel like motel rooms - basic amenities, thin walls, water temperature in the shower was sporadic and kept changing. However, the restaurant and pool area are much nicer than anything at a standard motel. We did not actually eat at the restaurant, but it looked nice. The front desk staff was nice. Our stay was comfortable enough for what we wanted - a place to sleep after a whole day of wine tasting. The location is about 3 miles away from the downtown area and beaches, but it's a short cab ride to get to the main shopping area on State St. and to the beach. Overall, I would recommend this place if you are looking for something basic and affordable and do not plan to spend much time at the Inn.
