This was a really nice motel which was clean and tidy and well maintained. It's on the State road which is the main street for Santa Barbara and goes all the way to the front. It's about 45 mins from the motel. The hotel is also only a couple of minutes from highway 101. Note that our room dos not...

Windows don't fully close, so you can hear everything. Had an Air Condition machine on the roof above our room and was very difficult to sleep with the noise. The bathroom seemed that was bombarbed... was very old and seemed destroyed. It is quite far for the center (30-40mins walk).

I really liked this place upon arrival, and questioned why it only had two stars. Later in the evening we noticed there were ants all over the floor, although we hadn't left any food out to attract them. We could not get a comfortable nights sleep due to this as they ended up all over us..

We did not book this motel in advance we turned up on the day and luckily they had a room for 6 at a very good rate. It was perfect for what we needed. Free wifi and free parking and within walking distance of places to eat. Breakfast is not included but we left early to carry on the drive...

Booked this with low expectations following other reviews but we were pleasantly surprised. Hotel is located in a nice area about 10 min easy walk to the village centre. There is a 7 eleven next door,. We had a room on upper floor overlooking the carpark with a balcony but there was little noise and the room was spacious with...

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...

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...

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...

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!
