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

My wife and I stayed with both our elderly mothers for our son's wedding and were delighted with this "find" on the internet as we didn't really know where to book in Santa Barbara. The hotel is relatively small but is perfectly placed for the seafront. The rooms are spacious and the beds large and very comfortable. The continental breakfast... More

The Mason Beach Inn is located in a perfect "neighborhood" area of Santa Barbara. Everything is within walking distance as long as you don't mind taking a decent stroll. State Street and the Beach are both 5-10 minute walks. The staff was friendly and helpful, especially Brandon. Great location and value. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Large comfortable clean room, 2 desks, 4 chairs in the king bed room. Limited continental breakfast but quality pastries. Upstairs, back, even numbered rooms most quiet. We were in 220. Friendly and helpful staff. Good location, walk to beach, and good value

The Mason Beach Inn was in close proximity to the beach and to great shopping. State Street was within walking distance and was teeming with shops and restaurants. The beach was two blocks away and offered excellent harbor views, beach area, and of course lots of eateries and gift shops. The inn was clean and everyone was friendly. Comfortable beds,... More

We stayed one night at the Mason Beach Inn. The front desk was nice enough to take our bags to our room since it was not ready yet and we wanted to go eat lunch. The pool was clean and the seating comfortable. Being a small Inn, the pool and spa and chairs were always easy to get access to.... More

This hotel is close to the wharf and the beach. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very basic. Our room was clean and neat but the cost was a bit high. The room we had didn't have a fridge or a microwave which I would assume would be in every hotel room. We unfortunately had a... More
