8/10 Very Good

Cute but squeeze $ out of guests
Great little hotel near the Marina and downtown. Everything was renovated and clean, and we liked the coffee / tea / cookie service in the lobby. The biggest drawback was having to pay for parking in their lot. I've only seen that in large cities and it definitely seemed like a lame way for the hotel to squeeze extra money out of their guests. Same thing for renting their bikes -- that cost $10/hour whereas bike rentals are usually complimentary in other hotels.

A little gem!
We loved our stay at Mason Beach Inn. The rooms were very clean and the best were super comfy. The room came with extra towels, ports for charging, make up wipes, soft clean sheets, nice pillows, large walk in shower, and parking was easy. I would definitely book again. Also, loved the artwork through out!

This is an excellent option for no-frills, clean, aesthetically pleasing accommodations. The staff was friendly and efficient, the rooms were cute and clean, and the location was great. Pool and hot tub were a bonus!

Clogged toilet that never got fixed
The toilet was clogged the night we arrived. I called that evening to see if it could get fixed. No one was available to help and they couldn't transfer us to a different room because it as fully booked. We had to use the lobby toilet our entire stay. I requested that someone come the next morning as early as possible and no one did. When I checked out I mentioned to them that the toilet was clogged still and the receptionist said there was no note of it in their records that I had requested service or of the incident.

Beautiful and well maintained property in great location but staff has no hospitality skills. We stayed at others inns nearby and they all far exceed when it comes to hospitality. We would go back to Mason Beach Inn when we can’t find rooms at nearby accommodations.
