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

Thank you for taking the time to write me concerning the issue you encountered at our hotel the night of February 7th, 2015. Upon returning to our property at approximately 2:30AM our staff was made aware of loud noise on the property. In accordance with our Good Neighbor Policy that is posted at the Front Desk where you check in,... More

Recently stayed here with a girl friend on a quick trip through Santa Barbara. Daniel at the front desk was very helpful, and suggested several great dinner options for us. Loved that you could walk to the public pier, and several nice dining options a short 10 minute walk away. Easy parking, and nice breakfast. Great value, however, only down... More

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
