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...

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.

The Orange Tree Inn has been my top choice for a cheaper motel on State Street for the past ten+ years. I am actually writing this review from the motel right now, as I can't sleep. This place has turned into a dump, or maybe it is just this room in particular. My room was about 100° and musty when...

We stayed here in one of their double rooms for our two nights in Santa Barbara. Our room looked out on to the pool and was clean and very spacious. The bed was crazy comfy and we had a great night's sleep. Parking onsite was great too, very useful and the staff at the front desk on arrival were very...

First let me give the Front desk staff high marks. Second the bed was very comfy. Now, I could tell they must have updated not to long ago. Good for trying. 1. Wall over bed to dark for room with dark carpet, should be a lighter color. 2. The curtains are very old. At night you can see light shining...

We had low expectations for this motel however were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room, bed and balcony. The bathroom was very dated and could do with an upgrade but the rest seemed pretty decent, based on the price paid for santa barbara. Location wise it was further out than we expected - about 45 mins walk to...
