Orange Tree Inn

“The accommodations did not warrant the price they charged. The room was dark and noisy. The fan in the bathroom did not work and the bed and pillows were uncomfortable. It felt like a cheap motel that you would stay in passing through some nondescript town on the way to your real destination.”

Orange Tree Inn

“The motel is in a great location. Only a short drive to downtown Santa Barbara and the wharf. For Santa Barbara the price was good. The room was a good size with a little patio table and chairs outside. There was a sliding glass back door looking out at the pool. The room was clean. Shower water pressure was great.”

Agave Inn

“The owners we super nice, welcoming and we had everything we needed for the room (including nice soaps and shampoos, and clean, cute interior room), and recommended good local dinner spots Pretty uniquely decorated for a motel as well, it was very cool! A comfortable bed, medium hard/a little soft for me but comfortable overall, and good temperature control.”

The Presidio

“For a “boutique motel”...the upgrades from “Motel 6” style were evident...the pillows and bed were great, very comfortable...the room was adequately clean although it could use a thorough adequate but small, fridge kept things cold...great parking...good lighting... right on State St but was very quiet at in the morning in the office was a nice touch ...heater an antique but worked well... cost wise it was extremely a good deal for Santa Barbara”
