The bikes were cool

Posted Sep 1, 2017
I loved that they offered free bikes to use. It was a great way to cruise around town. So much fun!

Great selection for the area

Posted Aug 19, 2017
Pros: Location, staff
Cons: Rooms allow a lot of noise in.
Location: There are plenty of things to do within walking distance.
The hotel is very well located and priced well for the area. The room was fine, maybe a little too much noise comes in but the location and staff are great.

The Precidio Motel

TV not working 1st night. No telephone in room. No pool. A little noisy due to old motel. Front office staff very friendly and accommodating. Bikes were available to ride.

great but for one thing...

Posted May 30, 2017 on Hotels
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.

Old, but clean

Posted May 17, 2017 on Hotels
Hotel is very old, but clean. There is no lobby. There is only a small space where the one front desk attendant stands and where no more than one or two other guests can wait. (I waited outside) In my first room the heater/air conditioning unit did not work at all. I transferred to a different room where the dead bolt was broken and there were cracks in the wood in the door where it had apparently been replaced before (or where someone had tried to force it open, not sure). The front desk attendant did address the situation by putting in an additional screw into the deadbolt mechanism. But when I voiced my concerns about safety I was told that the damage was not the hotels fault and that they have no control over what the guests do in the rooms. When I checked in he also told another guest that there should be a refrigerator in his room but if not it would be because some previous guest stole it. The hotel is located within walking distance of the shops and restaurants on State St, which is good. This place needs a major remodel, especially for the price that was asked for the room. They also need to work on customer service.

Sun Deck

Posted May 14, 2017
Friendly staff and clean and comfortable rooms! Have free bikes available (must return by 6pm) and a beautiful sun Deck where you can relax. Location is great as everything is located on state street. Many shops and restaurants start 2 blocks down the street. Free parking.
