          Comfortable, clean, and an easy walk into town. Staff was very helpful. Free parking. Shuttle to the pier from downtown is 25 cents per ride for seniors. When we return to Santa Barbara, we plan on returning to the Presidio.

          My expectations for such a cheap room on the main drag were not high, but I was pleasantly surprised. I love the outdoor sitting area, nice to people watch! And throw in free bikes, will definitely stay here again!
