Negative Reviews

Location not the most convenient

Whilst it depends on your personal preferences, the general location of the Lemon Tree Inn is not the most ideal in terms of exploring the best that Santa Barbara has to offer. For example, most of the main points of interest in the city, such as downtown, the beaches and zoo, are vehicle dependent.

Rooms basic and dated

The rooms at the hotel, according to a number of former guests, are outdated in certain aspects such as the furnishings and private bathrooms. In addition, the accommodations are regarded as under-equipped in general, with a lack of standard amenities like refrigerators and microwaves.

Patchy Wi-Fi service

Although it was not a notable issue for most, the complimentary Wi-Fi provided by the Lemon Tree Inn has received criticism from some past guests. It has been said that the Wi-Fi quality and range is not the best.
