Stayed here as we visited our daughter for 3 nights. Albeit the pool and hot tub area are somewhat cramped, the beds are comfortable, the place is clean and quiet. Location is great; a short walk to State Street and the beach. Don't forget to check out restaurants in Mesa. Good place to stay!

We stated here one night and was impressed for the price. Our room was on the second floor. The room was clean and very roomy. The front desk staff (can't remember his name) was so nice and friendly. We walked to the pier and to the Funk Zone. The hotel is in a convenient location. They have a hearty complimentary... More

We stayed on the ground floor near the back of the hotel. Very quiet for a peaceful night sleep. Short walk to the beach. A little further to the main street but for free parking it's great and continental breakfast.

This property is very clean and quaint. I stay at this property when I have to travel there for work and the price is great for what you get. The rooms are comparable to a comfort inn. The size is comparable to them as well. You get a continental breakfast with the price of the room. Again very simple, but... More

We stayed at Mason Beach Inn for a weekend. Location is absolutely perfect, it is 5 minutes’ walk to the Santa Barbara favorite beach and Marina. Stuff is very responsive and friendly, reacted to our asks right away. We stayed on second floor, room was big, clean and very cozy. It is not a luxury hotel, but absolutely good place... More

Located in a quiet neighborhood with palmtrees and flowers, you will find the cosy, Spanish style Mason Beach Inn. Mason Beach Inn is only a few minutes walk from the ocean, Stearns Wharf and State Street, with all the nice restaurants, shops and (not to forget) winetasting rooms, Staff is friendly and helpful, and the rooms are nice and clean...

My wife and I just did a trip up California Coast and stopped in Santa Barbara for a couple nights and looked for an affordable hotel and found the Mason Beach Inn. There was nothing spectacular about this hotel. The rooms are the same quality as a Motel 6, but pricier. My wife couldn't get the hair dryer to work,... More

I stayed at the Mason Beach Inn last weekend and cannot express how frustrated and upset I am with their customer service. This complaint is directed at their front desk supervisor Daniel. The issue occurred when we came back to our hotel room last Saturday night and Daniel thought our Lyft driver caused "too much" noise outside of the hotel,... More
