My boyfriend surprised me with a getaway in Santa Barbara a couple of weekends ago. I had never been to this hotel, but it was so perfect! The staff were so accommodating and the rooms were clean and so comfortable. The pool was so relaxing. We love to walk so we took moonlight strolls to the beach and town. We...

This is the second time we've stayed here. Location is just a few minutes from the beach but super quiet, off the main road. Our room was very big and clean. The breakfast is continental but not what you would expect. They bring in REAL pastry, not the cellophane garbage many places serve. The coffee is excellent and the staff...

The Mason Beach Inn is one step up from a motel. We had a pretty good room, the only wheelchair accessible room, with a lovely window facing a small garden. The king bed was comfortable. Being at the end of the hall, and not facing the parking lot, it was fairly quiet. The biggest issue was that we had requested...

This is an older hotel in a great location. It is within easy walking distance to the waterfront, shops, and restaurants. Stearns Wharf is also at a walkable distance. The train station is nearby as is the 101 Freeway. Even though it's so close to everything, there's not a lot of noise from people or traffic. Our room was small...

Friendly ,quiet and convenient location. We needed a place to stay, a room with a suite detached from the main building. The room was clean, comfy beds, modern, Spanish style with a business touch inside the rooms. Front desk staff very friendly, coffee avail in the lobby which I needed.

Our road trip team arrived here after the sunset to rest our weary bones on a Friday evening. Check-in was Taylor-like (swift) and we were in our room within 5 minutes of arriving. The room itself was like any other we had encountered during our trip and matched the online photos from Tripadvisor/Expedia etc. The beds felt good (although we...

The room was clean, a little on the dark side, but we didn't spend a lot of daylight hours in it. The toilet shower area was on the small side, but adequate. The staff was friendly. The location was a couple from the ocean. All in all we thought it was nice enjoyed our stay.

My husband and I found this little Inn not far from the beach, which was a nice little benefit for the next morning's walk. While it basically met our needs, it fell short in terms of availability of Jacuzzi on an evening that we were getting back late and really needed one. Honestly, would it hurt to make some exceptions?...

The Mason Beach Inn was located 1 block from the beach and in a residential area with several other motels. We stayed in a deluxe unit which means it had a fridge and micro. Both worked well and the fridge was quiet for sleeping. The unit was small with 2 queen beds and a separate bath/shower with a toilet. There...

Santa Barbara is a lovely destination and the Mason Beach Inn was no exception. Nice location on quiet back street. Ample free parking. Close to beach and all the local amenities, all just a short walk away. Staff were friendly and helpful. At the time of our stay their Internet was down which was very inconvenient, we did get a...
