On our first night at our freshly "cleaned room" we found a bath towel wadded up underneath our pillows on the bed. This means that the sheets and pillowcases were not changed since the last guest. It was late and we weren't in the mood to call and wait for someone come and do their job at 10pm; we brought a can of Lysol and sprayed the pillows, sheets, and headboard liberally. We ARE in a COVID pandemic and most hotels are adhering to strict cleaning protocols however the Lemon Tree doesn't appear to be performing even basic cleaning and laundering between guests. The headboard and dresser also had smears on them (hopefully not any sort of bodily fluid) and it looked like housekeeping made an attempt to wipe them down but didn't do a good job. Travelocity and Hotwire both state there's a 72 hour gap between guests at the Lemon Tree (COVID protocol) but this, of course cannot be true since the room was being "cleaned" when we arrived early. I've traveled extensively in Asia and abroad and am far from picky but this room was simply gross and more importantly, COVID protocols are not being following as simple laundering isn't happening between guests which becomes a serious safety issue.

We regret anytime a guest experiences a failing in our housekeeping. We take any error seriously and immediately review procedures to correct any problem. All our linens have always been fully sanitized and laundered between each guest without question. In this case we suspect a cleaning towel was caught up in the bed preparation, which is inexcusable, but humans are also imperfect ant accidents can happen in life. We do not hold rooms idle for 72 hours between guests, but our rooms are very clean and our staff normally gets superior acclaim for their work. The Lemon Tree Inn is a lovely place to stay, and we are proud of our friendly and eager staff. Lemon Tree Inn Santa Barbara

Unique ground floor view, and access to the pool; glass door to pool well secured with multi-bladed lock, overall look and feel of surrounding pleasant, comforting, and peaceful. William, who checked us in and out was friendly, helpful, and professional during all of our interactions.

There was no one at the front desk when we checked in at 6:15 PM, then after waiting several minutes, a young man arrived who was wearing his face mask under his nose. It took him more than 5 minutes to find our reserved room and issue a key. The room's comforter and throw pillows smelled of body sweat. Dinner from the Crocodile Restaurant was good. Breakfast took an hour and a 1/2 to order as key staff had not arrived. The food was good when it arrived.
