As first time visitors to Santa Barbara, the Mason Beach Inn fit the bill for us. The location is convenient to the waterfront, Stearns Pier, wineries and has complimentary parking at your door. We enjoyed our second floor room, which seems more spacious due to a vaulted ceiling. Room prices were quite reasonable. The staff gave us a friendly greeting...

For a quick stopover in Santa Barbara there are cheaper hotels outside the city. For luxury on an extended stay, Belmond El Canto provides beautiful views and top notch service - at a luxury price. If you want to experience the charm and style of Santa Barbara at a moderate price and within walking distance of the beach. Mason Beach...

The hotel is outdated but immaculately clean and functional. The hot tub was a fabulous offering and we enjoyed it in the Santa Barbara cold! Service was great and we enjoyed our time. The breakfast was bleh. Rather go grab a coffee and walk state street or down the wharf. Despite that was a good experience!

About the only thing that's changed at Mason Beach Inn since my last review is the price of a room. Otherwise, things have remained pretty constant over the past eight years or so. I've never considered staying elsewhere in Santa Barbara. Location is ideal. Rooms are comfortable and quiet. Everything is clean. Desk clerks are cordial and cheery. Continental breakfast...

As soon as we arrived at Mason Beach Inn, after being stuck on the 101 for almost 4 hours, we were warmly greeted by a male staff member. He checked us in super fast - possibly sensing our being tired & hungry. He was very helpful; gave me a town map and suggested some nearby places to eat. The room...

We typically visit Santa Barbara 2-3 times a year, staying for 10+ nights. This was our first stay at Mason Beach, and it won't be our last. Daniel at the front desk and Brandon the manager, are just simply "the best." If have a problem or need anything, all you have to do is ask! The hotel is just 1...

We stayed in the Mason Beach Inn for only one night as part of a PCH road trip but wish it had been longer! On checking in to our room, I opened the refrigerator and noticed that the previous occupants had left their restaurant left-over food in the fridge! I reported this to reception, simply to have it removed but...

Just a short walk to almost everything Santa Barbra has to offer. Only a few blocks to Stern's Wharf, the harbor, State Street, and the beach. Clean and comfortable, with a friendly staff. A continental breakfast is included: coffee, orange juice, cold cereal, muffins or toast, some fresh fruit.

Our stay at the Mason Beach Inn couple not have been more lovely. The Inn is centrally located within a 5 minute walk to the beach. Our room overlooked the pool and was very spacious with two queen beds, a desk, dresser, a refrigerator, dining table and vanity. The housekeeping service was excellent and our rooms were cleaned and made-up...

Located close to the Harbor, Stern Wharf and Funk Zone Santa Barbara areas. Easy to walk to places nearby for a meal or to visit the urban wine trail. Free parking at hotel. Hotel serves a continental breakfast. Note: Close to a neighborhood soccer field, which we did hear at night, but stopped around 10pm.
