Ok place to stay
You pay a premium to stay in or near downtown Santa Barbara. The Presidio Motel is a standard motel within reasonable walking distance of the lower end of State Street. The room, which featured a HD TV with lots of channels, free Wi-Fi, fridge and AC but no safe, was quite noisy. The staff were welcoming and friendly. There’s an IHOP just across the road which was great for breakfast.
Mr Richard A, gbTrip with friends
Good 6.0
great but for one thing...
really friendly and informative check in, good sized room, great use of the onsite bikes, the only negative was due to an awful smell (like amonia/urine) in the room. The location is good but too far to easily walk to the downtown area or the beach so the bikes are essential if you don't want to drive and pay to park. The room was a good size and the elevated decking area where you can relax with a drink is a nice touch. to be fair the guy on reception investigated the smell and tried in vain to mask it with some sprays but it was prevalent and blamed it on old/tired carpet but it did detract from what would have been a great stop on our trip.
