Affordable rooms, great grounds/restaurant
Great stay at the Lemon! The rooms are very affordable for the Santa Barbara area where the hotel is located and the grounds and restaurant are both a surprise upside. Awesome Italian food and the outdoor setup is beautiful at night. I had a minor issue with a key and a member of the cleaning staff noticed me and came over to help right away. Front desk was also professional and courteous. Will be staying again in the future!

It was just for one night. Miguel checked us in and he was very friendly and accommodating on all levels. He’s a great first impression for your hotel! We will definitely be back. 😊

Less than comfortable, overpriced, for elders
This was not what I expected after reviewing their website. This place is old and comparable to a motel. There were spiders in our room and spider webs on the walls. It's clearly designed for elders (flat floor throughout shower and bathroom, chair in bathroom for elders, diarrhea sign at pool) so why not just advertise it as so? That would be more transparent and forthcoming to visitors. Pool towels are just random store-bought towels. Carpets are old. This place is worth $80, not $300 so I am not happy with my stay.

Very Nice State Street Motel
This was one of the better hotels on State Street. Except for a couple of minor issues we would give it a 5-star rating. It is clean, modern, comfortable and quiet, with a nice garden and garden view. Two minor issues: VERY weak Wi-fi in our room, and poor lighting in the bathroom. Highly recommend.

Overall good stay
Restaurant was good and closed at 9.30 pm which was great as I arrived late, starving - desk staff were very nice - room was good a little dusty but roomy and functional. I had noisy neighbors it can’t blame the hotel for inconsiderate patrons. Overall a good stay
