You don't have to pay a fortune to stay near the water in Santa Barbara. This property is a good example. I paid less than $100 and I'm 1 block from Cabrillo, less than 5 minutes to the beach. The room wasn't new but it was very clean, large and had all the amenities I needed for a one night... More

We stayed one night in the Mason Beach Inn on our way to Napa. We love the restaurants on State Street and this hotel was an affordable option that was walking distance (a bit of a long walk but we are fine with that). The hotel is located in a very quiet residential-like neighborhood a block or two off the... More

We found this hotel and were surprised at all it offered for the price! Our friends were staying closer to the beach for more than double the price and it turned out we were only a block away! The rooms are large & clean & includes breakfast (which could have been better!) but really, with the pool, spa & wifi... More

The Mason Beach Inn is on a quiet street but only a short walk to the pier, beach and restaurants. Our room was large, comfortable, clean and well insulated. Although the hotel was close to full we rarely heard any noise. The staff was friendly and helpful and strived to meet any request. The Continental breakfast is not extensive, but... More

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...
