When I go to my space I appreciate the music, natural lighting from the hall windows and how clean everything is. It really is lovely. It is not what you expect when you think of self-storage.
As a woman, it’s so refreshing to store somewhere designed and run by a woman. The service and attention to detail to help the customer is over the top.
Their giant elevators make moving so much easier! I’ll never store anywhere else.
I love how personable everyone is, the managers remember my name and always offer me a cold water.
I have used other storages before. You get much more for your money at Patterson. The managers are so friendly and helpful, I recommend them to everyone!
I live at the Marvilla Retirement Center and I use my Patterson storage space like walk in closet for seasonal items. I even have a rug and a chair in the middle for when I go to get things. It is just great there.
Patterson feels good, everyone there is friendly and goes out of their way to help you, and it is well lit and clean! It’s a relief to find a storage center where you look forward to going to get a few things out from time to time.
Cleanest storage property ever!
My movers recommended I store at Patterson, easy to get their big truck in and out and the cleanest one they go to and the managers are a big help to everyone including the movers! They were right.
They actually have fresh basil growing outside their front door, for clients to help themselves!
It is great for my business. Other storage centers you have to wind around for 15 min to get to the center once you get off the freeway. Not at Patterson, I can get in and out right off the freeway when I need to pick up inventory or files. I work in Goleta but live in Santa Barbara so their location could not be more convenient! They all know my name and I get a big smile and wave from the window when I pull in.
When choosing a self-storage center the top 5 questions nationwide clients ask in order of importance are:
- Will my belongings be safe there?
- Is the location convenient to my home or place of work?
- Is the center clean?
- Do they have the size and type of space I need?
- Is the rental rate amount fair for the storage benefits I am receiving?
Are all self-storage centers the same?
No! Storage centers range in age from brand new to 30+ years old and will vary in the types of features offered. For example an older center may be built of wood and require you to carry items upstairs, while newer centers are usually built of steel with hospital sized elevators. Security is an important factor you should ask about when selecting storage. Location is also important. Some Goleta and Santa Barbara storage centers are located in industrial areas and others are more conveniently located near your home or place of work. Cleanliness is also a big factor so you should visit the storage center before you rent.
Will my items be secure?
Patterson 101 is equipped with video cameras inside and outside the buildings. Other security measures include electronic gate access, perimeter fencing, alarmed building entrances for client access only, shared on site resident manager with Patterson Plus Self Storage and well-lit so you feel comfortable accessing your items in the evenings.
Are locks provided?
All clients provide their own locks for security purposes. We recommend either a disc or cylinder lock and both are available in our box supply store or you may purchase one at a local hardware store.

TYPES OF SPACES & SIZES
What type and size space do I need?
View our Storage Types Glossary to read the detailed descriptions of the various types of spaces we offer. To help determine what size might be best for you, visit the Storage Sizes tab or call 805-964-0924 so we can help you personally. Our spaces have high ceilings ranging from 9’ to 15’, so when you rent with us you may be able to fit your items in a smaller space than you would need at other centers (for example if you want to store a 14 foot kayak we may have a 10’ x 5’ space with a tall ceiling which is less expensive than renting a 5’ x 15’ space)!
What are temperature controlled spaces?
These spaces are cooled in the summer and heated in the winter to take the highs and lows out of the temperature. Temperature controlled spaces are good for temperature sensitive items that could be damaged by severe hot and cold such as electronics and items made out of wood or plastic.
Can I store a car, boat or motorcycle?
Yes, we have drive-up spaces that will fit cars, boats and motorcycles. The vehicle must be in working condition and we require a copy of the current registration and insurance. A drip pan is required. Some of our spaces have trickle charger outlets.
How long is the lease term?
The lease term is month to month (except in the high season). Your lease period starts the day you rent the space. For example if you rent on the 10th of the month your next monthly rent payment will be due on the 10th of the following month.
How can I make a payment?
You can pay online, in person at the rental office, onsite at the drop box at the entrance keypad (no cash please), by mail or as most clients prefer, you can arrange to have your payment automatically charged to a credit card for our “No Late Fee Guarantee”.
What forms of payment do you accept?
At move in we accept local checks (pre-printed with your name and local address), Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and debit cards.
How much notice do I need to give when I am ready to move out?
We require a seven day written notice to move out. Full details on the vacating policy will be provided for you at time of move-in. Rent is not prorated or refunded.
Do you require insurance?
Yes. Your stored items may be covered on your homeowner or rental policy or we offer Tenant Protection Plans.
