Lemon Tree is a fine hotel for a night or two. The staff was friendly, there is a restaurant on site which is convenient. There was a funny smell in the room but it was an updated room. Parking right outside the room.

Bedding and furniture is all old, holes in wall, VERY OUTDATED and musty. I expected more as I have been coming to the restaurant for many years and it’s too notch. Thankfully I only was staying 1 night so I sucked it up. All staff though are wonderful. If you have any disabilities requesta room near elevator or otherwise it’s a walk to the rooms and there’s only an elevator by the front desk. If you park by your room location your only option is stairs unfortunately if on second floor.

It’s a lovely, large property and our room had a patio with table & chairs looking over the tropical courtyard. It’s an old property but comfortable, and a great location with Starbucks, Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods close by. Would definitely stay here again on a future stay in Santa Barbara.
