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. The pool is a good size and quite relaxing. We spent a good afternoon just relaxing there instead of at the beach. The room was quite...

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.

Only stayed one night but wish it had been more to be honest. Great size room and comfy bed. Set in a quiet street with good parking and nice pool. Very close to beach/harbour and not far to state walk by foot. Staff were friendly and helpful. We would stay again in the future.

Our room was very clean/comfortable (we prefer the suite). Staff was so friendly and accommodating (Brandon & Nick were so helpful). Enjoyed the pool as well! Nice to offer the complimentary breakfast (very basic but so nice to have). Location was perfect!! We plan to stay at Mason Beach Inn during our next visit.

A good Inn set in a smart clean residential area. Adequate parking, off street and free. In the coveted area between the freeway and the beach; one block walk to the beach. 15 minutes walk to the restaurants on State Street, or use the excellent 50 cent electric shuttle buses. Polite friendly staff and a smart clean building which is...

Arrived here for a non tourist event. Was given a room with a loud and buzzing fridge and next to elevator. Made a phone call to front desk. Sincere person said they would move us as soon possible the next day and would discount $ from first night stay for the fridge being so noisy. One short block walk from...

Stayed here on business and it's a great little place with friendly staff and an added bonus of a pool. We didn't have the continental breakfast as wanted to eat out in the mornings, and evenings. Great location and not to far to walk into a great town.

Nice little boutique hotel off the beaten path. Within walking distance to the harbor, beaches and a zillion restaurants. Has a very clean pool. Very friendly attentive staff. Decent spread for breakfast considering the tiny space and you can sit outside or inside. Clean rooms. The one drawback was the fluffy comforter was too hot. We had the AC pretty...
