The location is the main attraction, especially since it is in Santa Barbara! Easily walkable to most of the central attractions of this beautiful town. The inn itself is definitely dated. The decor could easily be updated with minimal cost. We found it reasonably clean and quiet. The staff was terrific. We had some immediate business needs and although they... More

The location is what sells this inn first and foremost, we did notice the cleaning staff do not appear well organized or maybe short staffed..rooms are entered twice once to get dirty towels and then much later to make up the room. Some items not replaced. But then I am a former innkeeper so I would notice these things. The... More

When we arrived after 3 pm the "Deluxe" room we reserved was not available but the clerk check us in anyway not knowing the room's condition. Housekeeping staff was still in the room which was not even available due to mechanical issues. It was anything but deluxe. The clerk then upgraded us to "the best room on the property" (#204)...

The location is great, the staff is nice and helpful, the room is as clean as an old, cheaply decorated room can be cleaned. The breakfast was basic but acceptable. It was nice sitting there and having it on a beautiful sunny morning. There were not enough chairs to sit on the balcony, so it was suggested that we sit... More

We stayed a night at Mason Beach Inn, wasn't long enough, on our road trip from San Francisco to San Diego. Excellent position close to the wharf, and a lovely swimming pool. Good room, quiet and comfortable. Helpful friendly staff. Breakfast was not brilliant, we went out and ate breakfast at Sambos on the front, a few minutes walk away.... More

Never had stayed here before. The staff is very friendly, outside nice and clean. Our room 121 was not up to par. The bed was like sleeping on plywood! Hardest bed I have ever slept on. The bedroom air conditioner had a foul odor when it turned on. As for being a suite, it was nice. Wifi did not work... More

I booked this hotel on-line and did not see the small print that the price went up $100 on the weekend. This made my accommodations way over budget. That said, the accommodations were clean, convenient and I enjoyed my room. Great bed! Continental breakfast available. Friendly staff, and despite being peak summer season, it was quiet when I wanted to... More

We spent 3 nights at Mason Beach and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This is a clean, simple inn and very well run. It is a 2 minute walk to the beach, yet on a nice quiet street. The rooms are large and we had a view of the pool. Everything in our room (108) was immaculate. The soaps and shampoo... More
