We gave the Mason Beach Inn (Inn is code for "motel" in Santa Barbara in many cases) over Thanksgiving Weekend. Got a good deal on AAA internet rate including a mini fridge (empty!) plus microwave. Our room had been updated with new furnishings, new bathroom sink/counter area and a wardrobe closet vs. a bare rack in the corner.
We had a nice view of the pool which was scenic but also noisy during day and early evening with people using it. Several families with little kids generated a lot of noise running up and down the halls and screaming which was not so hot. Hotel was not full so we avoided having people pounding the floor above us.
Pillows were cheap foam rubber, so if it matters, bring your own.
Breakfast is starch-fest, no protein source unfortunately but the rolls and juice were fine.
Free internet service was better this time, with 4 bar service. Hotel desk staff were helpful and polite.
Good value for the money and a very short work to the harbour and the beach. Free parking too!
