Nestled into downtown Santa Barbara only a block from the beach. Rustic, quaint, and simple. Rooms are very basic, but the beds are surprisingly comfortable. Wifi was the fastest ive ever seen in a hotel. Shower was superb. Breakfast, well, very basic, more of a snack to me. Coffee is good, but as for food, cereal, and some muffins. No... More

From check-in to check-out, the experience was very pleasant. When you walk in the lobby, there are freshly baked cookies. From there, it's a nice visit. It's very close to downtown and Funk Zone - wineries and shops. The room was comfortable and clean. Two queen sized beds, a good-sized bathroom. I like the option of a sink outside -... More

We spent one night in a small room with two double beds, TV, air conditioning and bathroom. The room was quite small and dark and the bathroom was so small the door would scrape against the toilet when opening or closing it. The location was okay, it was not too far to walk to town or down to the beach... More

We found this Inn to be a great little spot to stay. Just a short walk to the beautiful beach and you are also just several blocks from State street which is full of shopping and restaurants. This hotel is not fancy, but it is very comfortable, friendly and clean. Cute little private pool. Free breakfast is simple, but very... More

It was exactly what we needed on a long drive down from SF to LA. It is pretty close to the beach and well kept. The breakfast could have been a bit better as I found the pastries a bit dry, it would have also been to have a pool bar. This said the pool and hot tub were perfect... More

On a trip down the coast from San Francisco to L A we found Mason Beach Inn the ideal stop over before hitting Santa Monica. So easy to find and what could be better after a long day of driving and sight seeing than warm welcome from very helpful friendly staff and a nice swim to chill out. The room... More
