Close to the beach and on the north end of town so very close to LAX. A true "beach cottage" experience. Clean, convenient and exactly as represented on the website. We would definitely stay here again.

Great hotel in the middle of Manhattan Beach with an awesome price. I will totally be staying here the next time I am in town. The partial beach view rooms are worth the price. Unfortunately neither of us got lucky enough to get the upgrade to a partial view this time but it was still a great stay

We absolutely love this hotel. The staff was wonderful the beach was perfect. If you enjoy walking or biking the boardwalk was a blast, great way to get around. Lots to see and do. It's the only place we will stay! Thanks to Tony and the boys!

We love this place! You can't beat the location, the views or the neighborhood feel. Walking or riding bikes along the strand is the best way to start each day. The hotel provides the bikes or anything else you may need to hit the beach. We return as often as possible.

What a great staff and location! We were visiting my daughter who lived in LA. She came to visit us at the beach and we all were able to get chairs, towels, and bikes! She was allowed to park in the hotel lot which was great since you have to pay to park on the street or in a lot!...

Manhattan beach is my favorite little beach town in L.A. (much less touristy and pricey than Santa Monica and Venice) and the Sea View is my favorite place to stay. There are many different types of rooms distributed over 3 or 4 separate buildings only 2 blocks from the beach. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 1 bath 'Penthouse suite"...

Very close to everything fun in Manhattan Beach. Bicycles, boogie boards, and beach towels available to borrow for the day. The hotel staff is beyond friendly. For the money the best deal in town. Was a little bit strange that they still used keys instead of key cards however I felt very safe. This hotel felt like a little community...

Short walk to beach (2 blocks). Clean and spacious room. Fridge and microwave in room. Free bikes, beach towels, and boogie boards. Free parking. Friendly front desk staff. Restaurants, a coffee shop, and a convenience store all within 1-2 blocks. A 20min walk to pier. Great location and value. Already booked to return in 2017!

We stayed here as a group of five, 3 in a two bed suite and two in an executive suite. Hotel is close to the beach along with a range of local amenities such as a sports bar, pizzeria, a number of cafe/restaurants, juice bar, laundry store, convenience store and a cake/bake shop in the same street block.

We loved our time at The Sea View Inn at the Beach as it was close to LAX and a very beautiful area - great shops and restaurants and riding bikes along the foreshore was fantastic. I would recommend this as a stop over on your way elsewhere in America and also to stay for a week or so.
