I have been raving about this inn and my entire experience staying at Manhattan Beach since I got home! We were three gals on a "girl's getaway" and the location, room and customer service were all perfect! We chose an "Executive Suite" because of the two queen beds, plus sleeper sofa with living and dining space. It worked really well...

My husband and I only stayed for one night, but if we ever come to the LA area again, we'll definitely look into staying at this hotel for more time. It's conveniently located near LAX and a few blocks to the beach. Our room was small, but we had a decent balcony with a partial view of the ocean. The...

A short get away for my husband and I included 3 nights at the Sea View Inn at the Beach. What a find!! The Inn consists of several buildings on the corners of Highland and 34th. We stayed in the building that houses the office. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Since it is only a short walk to...

Cute little hotel in the heart of Manhattan Beach just blocks from the ocean. Walk to the ocean is three blocks down hill. Rooms are fine but not fancy. They have beach towels, chairs, umbrella and boogie boards. Bikes right on site. Plenty of very good eating establishments with-in short a walk. Not the place if you want the room...

Yes, many rooms do have ocean views! For those looking to be close to the beach and also near some casual eateries- this is a great spot! I also enjoy taking one of the free beach comber bikes out for a spin- but be ready for an incredibly challenging ride back up the hill from the beach! If you are...

We had read some good and bad reviews, however we thought we would give this place a try. The location close to LAX and the Beach made it a good pic. We love Manhattan beach, and wanted to stay close, as well as be near the Forum for the concert that saturday. We chose suite 508 which is the large...

I recently stayed here for three nights. The staff was very helpful and accommodating . I would recommend this inn if you're looking for a nice place in Manhattan Beach. The inn had a great location and lovely view . It is also within walking distance to the town and many shops.

Staff was very helpful and accommodating! They have what you need to take advantage of The Stand bike paths. If you want to hit the beach they have boogie boards, beach chairs, towels,and umbrellas. The location is walking distance to restaurants, mini mart, and retail stores. The surf break was great and water temperature required no wet suit. It was...

Fantastic, friendly staff went out of their way to make sure we had a great experience. The view is fantastic from the penthouse suite, everything is comfortable, and it is an excellent value for a family weekend. The smaller rooms are fine, but the bigger rooms with views are well worth the extra money. Beach is beautiful, especially this time...

Couldn't pick a better location for the price anywhere in the South Bay. Staff is great and very helpful. It's a bare bones typical beach motel style but if you want to be 3 minutes off the beach and across the street from several bars and restaurants this is a can't miss. A short 15 minute walk or 3 minute...
