Just 10 minutes ago, we checked into our room at the Malibu Beach Inn, to find that our "partial ocean view room" at a room rate of $455 also faces the road/parking lot and the 24/7 traffic of highway 1. We had booked this room for the location and ocean 'feel', but it is drowned out by traffic so when... More

Visited on a sisters' vacation weekend. There's no better location or view when it comes to hotels in Malibu. The rooms are also modern and very nice. That said, for the price you pay to stay here, the staff isn't as welcoming or accommodating as many of the other high-end hotels in the LA-area. Don't miss the chocolate chip cookies... More

We stayed here one night as part of a road trip from SF to LA. Our son and his wife had stayed here previously and booked us a room here as a birthday/anniversary treat. Unfortunately, on arrival I was suffering from a dreadful migraine and desperately hoped our room would be ready (we were there a bit earlier than normal... More

Had a wonderful time at the Malibu Beach Inn. My wife and I celebrated our anniversary there and the room was great. The hotel staff were friendly, accommodating, and professional. They customized our room for our anniversary and congratulated us several times throughout the stay. The food was good and prices were in proportion for a high class hotel. Their... More

I've been traveling down the PCH for a few days and we decided to stay at Malibu Beach Inn before our stop in LA. This is a quaint inn with very gracious staff.

Malibu Inn is a Hotel with the architecture of a Motel, nothing special. But all the prices are very high, with no reason to be. I am a person who likes good hotels, not minding paying for it, but Malibu Inn, is a good place, but not excellent to charge what they do.

So, the room is very clean, and fresh, and nice shower and tub and amenities and it is cool at night in Malibu so no need of AC...the staff was generally nice but a bit uneven--and not all that used to providing the kind of service one might expect from an expensive boutique hotel...and it really feels like they took...

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.
