This was a great location for those wanting to stay close to the water. It was clean and the staff was friendly. The morning continental breakfast was good. Santa Barbara is a beautiful small city that is very quaint with a thriving downtown.

Perfect stay. Great location close to main center but far enough away to be quiet. Easy parking. Good rooms. Complementary breakfast. Pool. Roll out beds available. Best service of any hotel my family stayed at on a 14 day fly drive.

Only stayed one night but found it to be very comfortable and clean. The desk clerk was very helpful and directed us to Brophy Bros restaurant which is fantastic. Continental breakfast is also included which consists of cereals, pastries, tea, coffee etc. If you are looking for somewhere in the heart of Santa Barbara this is a great place to...

The Mason Beach Inn is located in a nice spot, away from the main street, but still close to the beach and walking distance to downtown. A continental breakfast is included. The area to eat is very small and there's a good chance you'll land up taking your breakfast back to your room to eat. All day coffee and tea...

We always stay at the Mason Beach Inn. Our kids love it there - it is small, cozy, and comfortable. The biggest plus for the Mason Beach Inn is their front desk attendants. They are always friendly and helpful - and quick to make recommendations for restaurants and activities. Check-in and check-out are always smooth, the breakfast isn't fancy, but...

We stayed one night at the MBI on our way from the Bay Area to Newport Beach. This is an older property but it has been well-maintained. The lobby is small, especially at breakfast time, if you cannot sit at the outside tables. The MBI is just one block off the main shoreline road, and there are several restaurants nearby...

Stayed here for one night. Nice cute hotel, staff were fabulous. Rooms are nice, bit dated. Breakfast was very very basic so we skipped it and got our own. It is a great location just 2 minutes from the beach. Would stay here again.

Located just off the beach, this hotel offered comfortable beds in a nice little room. In addition, there was excellent service at the front desk, a clean outdoor pool/hot tub and a very nice morning breakfast in the lobby. Suffice it to say that it was an excellent one night stay.

We stayed here for my mom's birthday weekend March 2nd. We had wonderful weather considering I am from Chicago. Daniel, the Inn's attendant, was very attentive and wonderful overall. He will answer or find answers to all your questions. He grew up around the area so he is a very proud resident and will offer good suggestions. The Inn was...

We were a little apprehensive about choosing this place. read on line reviews from older stays, but discovered that as the years went by- improvements were made and the reviews became more positive. We stayed two nights (Sat & Sun, checked out on a Monday). Saturday was a little noisy, but definitely NOT the Motel's fault- just immature guests on...
