and the only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because the breakfast is rather skimpy with no hot food. That said, we'd definitely stay here again. We stayed a Monday night in Jan. Our king room was $116+tax. The room was quite large with a couch, a sitting table, a work table, granite counter tops, a micro and...

Good little spot. Stayed here for one night. Rooms are a little outdated but that's me being picky. Staff are friendly. I would recomend this hotel. Free parking which was good for us. Tv with lots of channels to stay in. A good in room menu and nice and cheap

This Inn smells clean when you walk in the front door. The staff were all exceptionally helpful, and polite. The room was clean, the water was hot. The bed was as hard a the floor. We might as well have been camping on the ground. The walls were thin, so the baby crying itself to sleep across the hall was...

As first time visitors to Santa Barbara, the Mason Beach Inn fit the bill for us. The location is convenient to the waterfront, Stearns Pier, wineries and has complimentary parking at your door. We enjoyed our second floor room, which seems more spacious due to a vaulted ceiling. Room prices were quite reasonable. The staff gave us a friendly greeting...

For a quick stopover in Santa Barbara there are cheaper hotels outside the city. For luxury on an extended stay, Belmond El Canto provides beautiful views and top notch service - at a luxury price. If you want to experience the charm and style of Santa Barbara at a moderate price and within walking distance of the beach. Mason Beach...

The hotel is outdated but immaculately clean and functional. The hot tub was a fabulous offering and we enjoyed it in the Santa Barbara cold! Service was great and we enjoyed our time. The breakfast was bleh. Rather go grab a coffee and walk state street or down the wharf. Despite that was a good experience!

About the only thing that's changed at Mason Beach Inn since my last review is the price of a room. Otherwise, things have remained pretty constant over the past eight years or so. I've never considered staying elsewhere in Santa Barbara. Location is ideal. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. Everything is clean. Desk clerks are cordial and cheery. Continental breakfast...

As soon as we arrived at Mason Beach Inn, after being stuck on the 101 for almost 4 hours, we were warmly greeted by a male staff member. He checked us in super fast - possibly sensing our being tired & hungry. He was very helpful; gave me a town map and suggested some nearby places to eat. The room...

We typically visit Santa Barbara 2-3 times a year, staying for 10+ nights. This was our first stay at Mason Beach, and it won't be our last. Daniel at the front desk and Brandon the manager, are just simply "the best." If have a problem or need anything, all you have to do is ask! The hotel is just 1...
