Poor 2.0
Worse hotel I’d ever stayed!!!
It was a horrible experience, I travel a lot and I’ve never stayed in such a dirty, old and badly kept. There’s was a bunch of ants and other creatures crawling around and on the beds. We had to sleep with our clothes on. Such a disgusting place!!

Good 6.0
For nearly $300 this place is pretty much an old dive. The only thing that warrants its high price is location to the Santa Barbara Bowl. The smell of disinfectant was overpowering.

Lemon Tree was ok, nothing special.
The Lemon Tree is a decent enough, older property however price is high for this basic hotel. Room was spacious with large patio doors that opened up to outdoor space. No microwave or refrigerator in room. Neighborhood was ok. Walked a short distance to coffee shop and encountered several homeless people sleeping in cars and wandering around. Parked right outside of our ground floor room which was convenient. Seems like most hotels in SB are high priced especially during summer months.

Fair 4.0
Dirty, old bedding, stay somewhere else
A little extra effort to clean the rooms would go a long way. Dust everywhere, holes in the sheets, absolutely terrible mattress. A big construction trailer full of trash was parked in front of the room. In reading other reviews, the trailer has been there for a while. We were there for one night, and in the morning we left early just to get out of the room. I would recommend staying somewhere else.
