Recent guest reviews

The mason beach inn was perfect for what we needed. Close to the beach, clean, safe and comfortable with ample parking. The continental breakfast each morning was awesome and a great perk.

Great location, close to beach and shopping. Comfi bed, ok breakfast,

Excellent small Inn access to beach ,trolly , eating places and much more. Mason Inn was perfect choice for our stay . Highly recommend to visitors on their next trip to S.B.

We loved our stay at the Mason Beach Inn. The staff was very friendly. The hotel is very clean.

Very friendly and helpful staff with restaurant and sightseeing suggestions. The room was spacious and comfortable. Hotel is located close to the lovely beach, harbor and wharf. Continental breakfast could use a few more items. It's an easy walk around the very picturesque city. We enjoyed our stay here.

I give it five stars. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with a smile. Josh provided us with tons of local eating options and got us in our room to change for a interview as soon as our room was ready. The pool was lovely, the hotel was in a perfect location. Not right on the beach but just off the beach so we were not bothered with traffic noise or loud crowds walking by. The breakfast was ok. No scrambled eggs; but cold cereals, toast, muffins, coffee and juice. Just enough kick to get your day started. Check out was fast and easy. For the price I felt like I did get exactly what I paid for. Thank you Mason Beach Inn!

Nice place by the cool part of Santa Barbara. Easy walking distance to downtown and beach.

We stayed here the weekend before Christmas and loved it. It was very quiet and easy to check-in / check-out. The staff was very friendly and I appreciated that there was tea / coffee available in the lobby. We missed continental breakfast but it's nice that it is available. Lots of free parking and walking distance from the Wharf!

Charming small hotel in a great location just a few blocks to the beach. Great value for the money. Clean rooms, pool and everything you could ask for. So much nicer than more expensive hotels in the area. Would definitely stay again.

Really close to the beach & pier. Enjoyed our room. It is a bit dated & wifi wasn't great, but we're going back. We have stayed in a few other places in the immediate vicinity. We liked the air conditioning, staff & although one was closer to the beach, we liked this one the best of the three.

Front desk staff excellent. Walking distance to beach and warf..overall pretty good inn for the price. I traveled solo and felt safe

Greeted at check in by a very friendly and welcoming young man. Room was clean and very nice. Location was awesome.......we walked to the beach, harbor and downtown. It was a great place to stay in a beautiful city!

Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean, updated and nice.

we arrived rather late on Friday evening after a 10 hour drive from Vegas so we all just wanted a hot shower and comfy beds for good nights rest and we got exactly that at Mason beach inn. Cute little inn close to beach and downtown.

We enjoyed the Hotel and it's cleanliness, convenient location to the beach and Brophy Bros and quiet setting. The staff was helpful and friendly and the breakfast was adequate. Will consider returning for the price--thanks!

We had a very pleasant stay. We got what we paid for. It was mostly clean except for the bathroom vent in the ceiling was caked with dust. The location was great as it was walkable to both the beach and to the shops and restaurants. The staff was pleasant. The continental breakfast was adequate. Our bed was very comfortable. The pool was fairly nice.

We decided to stay in Santa Barbara for the night rather than drive directly to San Diego. Next trip up the coast we will definitely spend more time in Santa Barbara and hopefully at the Mason Beach Inn.

Room was perfectly adequate, beds were comfortable, pool/Jacuzzi were relaxing. Great location - only a few blocks from the beach. Staff were friendly and efficient. Price was right.

Excellent pool and Jacuzzi, this hotel is walking distance to just about everything in downtown Santa Barbara. If you've got a car, it's a 15 minute drive to a neat hike to Inspiration Point. It can be noisy at night when a rude guest talks in the hallway, but this only happened one of the two nights we stayed. A great value! Would stay again.

Beautiful Hotel, can't beat the location... walking distance to harbor, downtown, Steans Wharf etc.. The pool and hot tub close at 10 every night which is disappointing to anyone who might want to tub after dinner.
