The Lemon Tree is a mid-century property which adds charm! The rooms are varied and comfortable, but not elegant. The interior garden/pool area is very nice (unfortunately, it was raining when we were there...). The restaurant there is quite good as well which makes the stop at the Lemon Tree attractive to travelers!

On arrival our reservation was mistaken in their system. Fortunately we had the payment confirmation printed and they saw that we should get 2 rooms, not one. By changing this reservation we was informed that they agree to the error in their system but they had every room reserved so we got a room already reserved. The worst part was...

Great service at a great value. Be sure to ask for the "central (Deluxe?)" rooms that are three floors high and located in the middle - they have the newest renovation. Other two 2-story buildings have older rooms. Also, breakfast at their "Crocodile Cafe" is quite reasonable and hearty.

Outside is not pretty and the room is very basic, no small refrigerator, no details, needing some repairs... but everything is compensated by the beautiful terrace that looks to the swimming pool. The pool with plants and flowers the jacuzzi and of course the lemon trees make everything worth it. I slept like a baby, the bed was comfortable and...

This is an older property, but good value in pricey Santa Barbara. It is built around a nice tropical courtyard with a pool and hot tub. The on-site restaurant "Crocodile" is excellent. We had a minor problem with the TV which was fixed promptly.

Our room was big with a jacuzzi and a balcony. Reception team was nice and welcoming. Really good parking facilities. View to the interior garden. In the morning Hummingbirds were all around the garden. Good sleep quality. I recommend!

During our road trip we stayed here two nights. We had 2 linked rooms and that was nice. There is an outside pool and hottub. They were nice. But it was a pitty that the lights of the pool were still set on the summer switch time and so the lighs were switched off at 21.00 instead of 22.00 hours....

Despite all of the glorious reviews we were quite disappointed by the Lemon Tree Inn. The room was decorated in dark and gloomy colours and was not very clean with tatty curtains. Dirty towels were left on the floor and ants were crawling inside the bathroom. For what it is this place is overpriced and there are better options
