Daniel extended a warm welcome to us today upon check-in and delivered exceptional customer service! In an effort to surprise my family arriving from out-of-town I went to the hotel today to set up fresh flowers, refreshments and wine in the room. Not only did Daniel help carry the heavy bags, he even brought two wine glasses and cut the... More

Mason Beach Inn is very well located, near all main points of interest of Santa Barbara. It is a walking distance from beach, pier, restaurants, shopping area. Room is comfortable and clean. Hotel has a pool, free parking and wifi. Breakfast is simple, but it is good and honest. We loved our stay in Santa Barbara!

Mason Beach Inn is a fairly ordinary hotel located on a quiet street. Large rooms with decent standard and a pool area with Jacuzzi. Simple but ok breakfast. It is close to the beach and piers with restaurants. It is also walking distance to the historic district.

We had a lovely stay in santa barbara and part of it was thanks to this hotel. Our room was enormous and with all comforts. The breakfast is good with a great variety of bread, pastries and fruits to choose from. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The best part however was the swimming pool and the spa. A...

Checked in, then viewed the room, which reeked of urine. Asked to switch rooms and was given only what was left: a handicapped room with no bath, an annexed room next to the dumpster in the parking lot. Not worth nearly $200!!!!!!

Were a bit apprehensive but this inn was perfect for our one night's stay on our way to Carmel and San Francisco. Were sorry to have to leave. We did not like the wall to wall carpet but all else was more than OK. First impression was a bit "dark" but we soon started to appreciate the room and the... More

The hotel is in a good location near to the beach, the rooms are large but are in need of a makeover. Breakfast was minimal & eating area was small. Staff were excellent at all times. Pool area was nice and clean with vending machines if so required.

We stayed here as a stop-off after driving down from Monterey - on our way to LA. The hotel is nice - great location for what we needed - and the service received was really good. On arrival - there had been an issue with our booking (our fault) but the manager sorted it out without any fuss. I'd recommend... More
