People might say to me:"for the price what did you expect?" True... this place was cheaper than some of the other places in the area. But there are things they need to improve. The shelves on the night stands and TV stand and AC unit had dust caked on very thick, they were the dirtiest shelves I have seen in... More

My wife and I stayed here this past weekend and absolutely loved it! This charming hotel is clean, comfortable, and located super close to the beach, a bunch of great places to eat, and cool little shops. The service is excellent, and we really enjoyed the continental breakfast. We highly recommend this hotel!

I recently spent two nights at this hotel with my daughter. I did A LOT of on-line research before actually making a reservation. Santa Barbara is loaded with expensive lodging options, so trying to find a reasonably priced hotel that also had good reviews was a bit challenging. Overall, I think Mason Beach Inn has a lot going for it.... More

My wife and I stayed at The Mason Beach and overall we were very pleased with our choice, The staff were very helpful (especially Daniel on reception) and the rooms spacious and clean. A couple of points to note: (1) there are no safes in the rooms and no facility for leaving valuables at the front desk in a safety... More

Check in was at 3 pm and the reception staff throughout my stay was very friendly and courteous. Pool towels are available from here and a basic breakfast is available each morning including pastries and cereals. Initially I was disappointed with the room. I felt there ought to have been more to it for the price that I paid however... More

The hotel is in a fantastic quiet location yet just one street back from the main front with easy access to attractions, bars and restaurants. The check-in service was quick and efficient with the room larger than normal. The on site pool although slightly on the small side was adequate and refreshing after a hot day walking around. The breakfast... More

I have not stayed here, but booked a room and unfortunately had to cancel. I was a little nervous because I had paid for one night up fron. But, they gave me no problems and promptly cancelled and my money was credited with no issue. Nice to see!

We stayed in this small, pleasant hotel just a block or two off the main seaside road. It is walking distance to the pier and the harbor breakwater. Uptown restaurants are 10-15 minute walk away. At the end of the street is a city park with a tree full of nesting Great Blue Herons! The hotel is in a quiet... More

Our first time in Santa Barbara and stayed here for one night. A very good stop over hotel as location to pier and restaurants is 10-15 min walk. Rooms are spacious and we had a super king bed. The free wifi worked perfectly. No fridge in room but had ice machine in hotel. Small quiet pool as well. Continental breakfast... More

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!
