I love this place. I was actually staying in a hotel in Orange County but my husband was staying in Malibu. I decided to leave my stuff in OC and drove to 1.5 to 2 hours 2 nights in a row just to wake up to the beautiful Malibu sunrise and the sound of the surf crashing on the bluff.... More

Stayed here for 1 night, would definitely come back! Seaview room in the 3rd floor is beautiful (big window and balcony, fireplace, nice bed), staff super friendly and helpful, food is good, location perfect, right next to the pier. Highly recommended!

I only stayed here for one night in November and it happened to be rainy and cold, so I'd love to return someday (which I would) and experience the hotel in the sun. That being said, it seemed like a very nice place and a superb choice if you want to be literally on the beach in Malibu, right on... More

Nice hotel with a fantastic location on the beach. Our room (all rooms?) had a fabulous view of the ocean and the sea is so close you can almost touch it! The terrace for food/drinks also provide a great view and is highly recommended.//Henrik, Sweden

Although this place is slightly worn and battered it is an amazing place to stay with superb views of the sunset and ocean. There was a fire in our room for chilly nights and the restaurant was great. The only let down was the breakfast which was inedible on one day.

Very nicely located on Highway 1 but first thing that annoyed me was paying a bloke $35 to park my car 25yds away from the front door. Had a very nice lunch there but so expensive ($18 for a glass of wine, lol!), so didn't have evening meal or breakfast. Very nice and obsequious staff but you know what they... More

We spent 3 nights at the Malibu Beach Inn. We were in room 215, Queen Room, Ocean View. The view and staff were wonderful. The rooms were clean and cozy.

Staying in Malibu

Neighborhood Profile
Malibu
The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush, green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted with stunning rock formations. In certain areas, where the ocean waves are just right, surfers can be seen bobbing in the water. Up in the mountains to the east hikers take in truly stunning views of the ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles landscape. And along Pacific Coast Highway, restaurants are filled with visitors and locals from all walks of life. Stumble into the right place at the right time, and you’ll likely encounter a celebrity.
