Review of Mason Beach Inn
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jun 15, 2019
Nice inn. Close to boardwalk and it was an easy walk to the downtown. Easy parking. Cute pool with nice seating. We had a simple continental breakfast and the room was a nice size. Cute town. Wished we stayed longer.
Date of stay: June 2019
Room Tip: Be prepared to be creative on where to eat the breakfast. Not a lot of tables indoors.

Clean rooms, nice location close to the harbor. The main street with the shops and restaurants was on walking distance, even with a bad knee. The environment was quiet and everything looked so nice and tidy. The personnel was very friendly, a casual breakfast was included in the room fee. There was a small pool, but didn't use it due to lack of time. Parking was free. We were there only for one night and enjoyed our stay.

Not cheap, but then not much in Santa Barbara is. The room was large however, and checkin/checkout was quick and efficient.
We didn't use the pool as it was quite chilly.
Breakfast was casual but pretty good (breakfast burritos, bagels, muffins, fruit, yogurt, cereal, coffee, etc.).
Location is away from the hustle and bustle of state street but only a 10-15 minute walk which is easily doable.

Don’t stay here if you’re looking for a quiet, comfortable place to stay. Had to be the hardest bed I’ve ever slept on I checked in, was told to use the street parking, only to find there was a 90 max time limit. The next door neighbor practices the guitar all day long. Totally takes away from the ambience keep looking. Don’t stay here

Quick trip for business and this was the perfect little Inn. The location is great - right by the harbor.

The staff was very friendly and helpful and the continental breakfast was exact for a fast breakfast in the morning.

We loved this little hotel close to the seaside in Santa Barbara, and for the price, it has everything I would expect. The beds were comfortable, the rooms were clean and fairly updated for an older building. We appreciated having a frig and a microwave, and unlike some, we thought the breakfast was nice. The pastries were higher quality than you get at comparable breakfasts, and they offered several cereals as well as hot oatmeal. Though the breakfast room is small, there is seating by the pool. Speaking of the pool, it was well-heated - perhaps even warmer than we needed - but it made it easy to enjoy even in cooler weather. Best element of all was, of course, location. With about a quarter mile walk to the ocean front and about a half mile walk to Stearns Wharf, it's easy to get around.
