I learned to not judge a book by it's cover with the Presidio Motel. We traveled the PCH on a budget, but just happened to stay in the best hotel I've ever been to the night before arriving in Santa Barbara. I definitely was iffy pulling up to Presidio based on it's outward appearance BUT the room we had was completely updated with 20 ft vaulted ceilings. It was very clean (I'm a bit OCD about this), beds were comfortable and it was a perfect size. Everything in the room was new. It's located right on state street so it's very convenient for shopping/restaurants. They mentioned it's a 15 minute walk to the Wharf/Beach, but I would say this is more of a drive/30 minute walk. The Mission is a short drive away as well.
