Room was ok, no fridge, bath plug was broken not that this was a problem but it shows the general condition and up keep. Breakfast was good, air con was very noisy, bed was uncomfortable, not enough pillows. I would look elsewhere before staying here again.

I visited Santa Barbara for a continuing education course and read a lot of reviews before I booked the Mason Beach Inn. All the reviews were right on so I am happy to add to it. The location is awesome! A short walk to all things fun in Santa Barbara (The Funk Zone and downtown) and when I arrived, Brandon... More

Finding a place to stay in Santa Barbara near the beach is costly- this nice motel was a little more affordable than the others nearby and was surprisingly comfortable! Very clean, nicely decorated rooms, super comfortable bed, nice pool and hot tub. And for a small hotel it was nice to see that they put some effort to make their... More

Quick check inn, helpful people at the reception. The room was dated, very 90s furniture, tiles, carpets.. AC very noisy!! Wifi was slow in the evening. Parking spaces outside. Breakfast weak but ok. Hotel is located close to the sea and State street, Stearn's wharf.

First time to Santa Barbara and I was impressed with this boutique style of a hotel. Front desk personnel by the name of Christopher was very helpful and accomodating. This place is just a walking distance to the harbor, about 5 minutes walk. Then you will see a lot of restaurants and shops around the harbor. So mant yachts to... More

The pool area was small but never busy or crowded so was ideal. Rooms were lovely and big, had everything you needed. Breakfast was good. Ideal location for beach, harbour and pier...... but quite a long walk to the bars on state Street and the shops.

My husband and I stayed at the Mason Beach Inn for 3 nights and had a great time. The person checking us in was super helpful - he gave us a map and recommended restaurants to us. The location was perfect. We were able to walk to the beach and the pier where there were shops and restaurants. Our room... More

This was a great location to walk everywhere. The room was clean, staff very nice and helpful but it is older. We could walk to the pier and catch the shuttle downtown and back. We went on the walking food and wine tour and had a great time. We tasted a lot of different food and some good wine. Our... More

We had a very nice stay at the Mason Beach Inn, check in was easy and the home made cookies and freshly made Lemonade where excellent. Rooms were good size and well equipped. After a morning walk along the beach and finding our feet covered in tar, that took some removing, we spent a very pleasant day by the pool... More

The hotel shows Southern-European architecture and is located in a nice area in 5 min walking distance to East and West beach in Santa Barbara. If you walk down the street in direction to the ocean and turn left, you reach the beaches, if you turn right you find some boats and a smaller beach. Parking is included in the... More
