stopped en route from Santa Barbara to LA. What a treat , Room 201 has a balcony and ocean views , even a sea lion sighting. The breakfast on the deck while ridiculously expensive for us mere mortals was a treat. Ah, the sun, the surf the service and tiny doll house sized bottles of Tabasco ! Had I known... More

This hotel is very charming. It is right on the beach, and a good stop between Santa Monica pier and Santa Barbara. The property is not very big, but the rooms were a good size and well appointed. It definitely prides itself on being a luxury boutique property. I stayed in a "partial ocean view room" that was very reasonably... More

Stayed here one night as we moved south during our coastal road trip. Honestly this is the best place I have stayed in a long while. The room was small but clean, beautifully decorated, well organized and efficient. The view was amazing! Great service and all the little extras made our night wonderful. Coffee in the room, complementary coffee service... More

This hotel is fab. The room is beautiful and the view from the balcony is just breathtaking. We had dinner at the hotel and the choice was extensive and the service was superb. We could have parked in the hotel, which costs an additional $27.50 but we chose to park outside the hotel for nothing

Chose this hotel for the location, and frankly not many nicer places in the area. Decided to go ahead and splurge a bit, but did not get an ocean view room. My pier view room was fine (honestly if you go to Malibu and worry about the view from your ROOM you're missing the point). Do understand that the hotel... More

Wow, what a great location! We were in town for a wedding, and just stayed one night, but would love to come back. The views from the room are spectacular, and the brief interaction we had with the staff was awesome. The rooms have everything you would want, and are up-to-date. Go Visit yourself!

One of the best hotel experiences ever. Room 102. Stunning views from room and balcony with waves almost beneath your feet and greaf little beach below. Great attention to detail- cookies at reception, personal LA times and a printout of a newspaper from your country, incredible coffee in room, Molton Brown toiletries. Loved bed and sofa. Minor negatives-a little bit... More

The Malibu Beach Inn is a quaint but plush beach resort. The perfect place to retreat and get away from the hustle and bustle... Imagine a cozy room, crackling fireplace, ocean waves crashing upon the shoreline... Aaaahhhhhh!

Lobby is small but pretty with a lively view of the ocean. Room lays out nicely for its size, is clean and smells fresh (unlike some beach spots). The staff was friendly and accommodating. Great location, with the pier less than a block away and .5 miles from Malibu Country Mart.

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.
