Trendy Clean Friendly
Posted Oct 4, 2016
Came to Santa Barbara for my birthday weekend and was looking for somewhere quaint to stay - this place was exactly what we needed. Not by any means a luxury resort but you get what you pay for, right? The Presidio Motel was reasonably priced, very clean, rooms were moderately updated and the staff was excellent... check in/out was a breeze and everyone was very friendly and helpful. There's a cute deck area with lounge chairs and tables where you can hang out and enjoy the beautiful SB weather, and the location is prime! Right on state street just about 2 mi from the beach, perfect so you're not stuck right in the middle of all the traffic/crowds. They offer free bikes to get around town - we rode them to breakfast and it was perfect!
TIP: if you're super picky about toiletries/towels etc I would recommend bringing your own (don't worry-they're clean! just not super fluffy/new) however they do provide these things if you aren't too particular.
Would definitely recommend The Presidio for a weekend getaway!
