Obviously, this is inn is not on par with the Canary Hotel, Fess Parker or Hyatt and their respective amenities. So at this price point, what you're paying for are location and cleanliness. You get both here. The Mason Beach Inn is only a half-block away from the beach, a 5 minute walk to Stearns Wharf, and if you're in...

They have a lot going for them, good location, lots of carparking and reasonably spacious rooms. The public areas are modern, but oh no, rooms are in dire need of updating and whilst reasonably comfortable, we felt that care had not been taken, the rooms had been let go. The breakfast was extremely simple with lots of carbohydrates and sugary...

We only stopped over for one night in this motel, it was located very close to the harbour and the beach and had a very nice atmosphere. We had a comfortable sleep despite our room facing the car park , no problem. We have used the pool for couple hours which was big enough and had plenty of chairs around...

Booked through booking.com as a stop on route 1 between the San Francisco and LA. The hotel was reasonably priced and it was cheaper to book in advance we stayed here and Monterey and both would have cost more if you just turned up and booked, but this place at least had availability if you prefer to just show up....

Pre-booked with booking.com as part of a self drive tour of west USA. Nice hotel in a great location. Short walk to the beach. 10 minutes from the pier. Easy walking distance to downtown if you are reasonably fit.

This motel is ideally positioned just a couple minutes from the water by foot and a couple blocks from State Street where you will find many restaurants and things to do. Mason Beach Inn is typical of the many motels and hotels in the area, it is clean large bedrooms with air con, a swimming pool and whirl pool and...

My husband and I decided to take our honeymoon driving highway 1. When we made it to Santa Barbara we did quite a bit of walking around to find the right hotel for us. We ended up picking the Mason Place Inn for a couple reasons and I'm so happy we did. First thing for us was the price, we...

We stayed here for 2 nights during a California road trip and can't really fault it. Plenty of parking, local to the main streets and the beach as well as having plenty of parking.

We only stayed one night but it was lovely. Very relaxing! The staff were great with a cosy but comfortable room. Incredibly quiet location with a very peaceful feel. We enjoyed the simple but more than adequate continental breakfast; even the fussy kids were happy!!Would definitely return given the chance.
