The hotel was beautiful and well maintained. Rooms were also tidy. The best part was that it was less than a minute walk from the beach and 5 minutes walk from the wharf. Also, the staff was very polite and responsive. They had good variety in continental breakfast also. Only downside which did not bother us much was that onsite...

Our room was nice and clean. The location definitely very quiet and within easy walkable distance from State Street stores and restaurants. Ample parking. Breakfast not special, but within normalcy. I will stay there again.

We stopped by Santa Barbara during a tour of CA colleges with our daughters. The Mason Beach in is centrally located and gave of easy access to downtown SB. The hotel is fairly basic, but the rooms were comfortable and the property is quiet at night. Perfect for our purposes this trip.

This hotel is located in a nice quiet area of Santa Barbara. The beach, shopping and restaurants were all a short walk away. The staff was friendly. We did not take advantage of the complimentary continental breakfast. However, they put out lemonade and cookies every evening which is a nice touch. The room was clean and well equipped. The only...

1960's vintage hotel ~ 3 blocks form the marina/beach. Minimal breakfast. No coffee thru the day. Helpful staff. Rooms clean, but of average size. Nice bath amenities. Generally quiet as it is on a non-major street.

My three adult kids, son-in-law and I stayed at the Mason Beach Inn two nights in January and found it delightful. It is just two blocks up from the beach in less than a mile from downtown restaurants. We rented two rooms and were happy with both. The continental breakfast was very good and the service was excellent. We took...

As the name of the hotel suggests, Mason Beach Inn is very close, approximately 1 block, from the ocean. This is exactly what I was looking for when I booked my 1 night stay. The room I stayed in on the first floor was comfortable and clean. The only issue is that the heater kicking on and off at night...

We only rented a room for one night - but the location was so perfect that the stay was most enjoyable. We rented a room with two queen beds. We loved the microwave, Mini Fridge and the coffee pot. The café table came in handy for morning coffee and answering emails. We also enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. If our family...
