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

Checked in before 3PM so they let us leave luggage by the reception. We went out for lunch and by the time we came back room was ready. The elevator makes things much easier, not all two-storey hotels we have been have such facility. The room faced the pool but there was no substantial noise. The room is equipped with... More

I have read other peoples reviews and feel like I stayed at a totally different place. It needs an update and could be cleaner. Its noisy. Bed was soft and lumpy. Air con so close to bed you couldn't turn it on and go to sleep or you'd freeze. Thus nights were too warm. No fridge , no safe. Positives... More

The room was large and the location was good. Overall the location was quiet with good wifi and a nice view of the pool. Service was very friendly. The not so good---the room needed a good cleaning. With a quick look, it looked clean but looking a little deeper there was a solid layer of dust on the plugs/outlets which... More

Although we only stayed one night so didn't get chance to to use the pool, but this was place was spot on. Easy onsite parking, check-in was quick, rooms were large, clean and modern. The continental breakfast (pastries, croissants, cereals, oatmeal were fresh and plentiful). Location is just a short walk from the pier where there is a good selection... More

Mason Beach inn was all it was advertised and more. The location was perfect, the rooms attractive and welcoming, the continental breakfast buffet quite fine and the staff friendly and helpful. We enjoyed lounging by the pool and walking to restaurants and Sterns Wharf. And it was an easy drive to surrounding beaches (such as Hendrys) inland attractions such as... More

A very good experience in this hotel. At first, a front desk that is very helpful and client oriented, always with a smile. Free water, coffee and tea any time of the day at the lobby. Free parking and free wifi. Excellent situation, 5 minutes walking from a beautiful beach and 10/15 minutes walking from State street where you can... More

We stayed at the Mason Beach Inn for three nights the first week in August. Upon arrival it seems you are in a residential neighborhood - tree lined streets, quiet, very attractive. Actually you are in a neighborhood of quaint motels and inns. We liked the area very much. Short walk to the beach, wharf and a longer walk to... More
