We stayed here for two nights during our road trip and it was a little oasis of calm and comfort during the trip. Very expensive but restful, I did not leave for the entire time, we ate on the balcony and spent time on the (very small) beach. This will disappear and then not sure what the hotel will have...

This was our second visit to the Malibu Beach Inn and this time it was over a 3-day holiday weekend. The town was crazy and our hotel was our sanctuary from the crowds. The rooms are right over the beach, so we enjoyed listening to the waves and just relaxing on our patio. The restaurant is great, we enjoyed lunch... More

I had a near perfect stay at the Malibu Beach Inn, marred only by the huge waves from Hurricane Marie that prohibited beach access for walking, but that was certainly not the fault of the hotel. I stayed in a beautiful oceanfront queen room with a great balcony. Room service was delicious for both dinner and breakfast, and the treatment... More

We booked an oceanfront king suite. It's supposed to be a large room with a double balcony. The room they showed us when we arrived was right next to the restaurant. To provide some privacy, much of the balcony was covered with tall plants so people from the restaurant couldn't see into the room. Unfortunately, this meant that from nearly... More

Enjoyable and relaxing stay right on the beach! Loved our corner room / view and the drinks / dining by the ocean. Sophisticated and relaxed. Self-made pace. Make sure you order your piece of heaven well in advance.

Having been delayed at the airport, we were unable to book into the hotel that we had been aiming for in Malibu. We decided to go for a luxurious first night in the states, and booked into a gorgeous room overlooking the sea. Although it was lovely, it didn't provide the value for money that we got in other locations

This hotel offered some great touches like a fireplace, an ipad and binoculars to watch the surfers. We had a king room facing the pier, and it gave us the perfect amount of space to have a few friends over. Loved the service on the beach and the proximity to the pier. Room service food was great!

Room was smaller than I expected but the view and the feeling of being right on top of the ocean was worth every cent. Our stay would have been perfect if we had encountered different staff. We checked in with one person (I can't remember the name). We then encountered this same person several times during our stay and each... More

Magnificently nestled right on the sands of famed "Billionaire’s Beach," Malibu Beach Inn is a spectacular ocean-front getaway within minutes of LA. Since its inception in 1989, Malibu Beach Inn has become a beloved destination for both leisure and business travelers. After a complete, contemporary multi-million-dollar renovation, Malibu Beach Inn re-opened its doors as the only luxury oceanfront hotel destination between Santa Monica and Santa Barbara, offering guests unsurpassed levels of luxury and service on the sands of exclusive Carbon Beach. The Malibu Beach Inn is approximately 22 miles from Los Angeles International Airport. The hotel embraces the serene beauty of the Malibu coastline through its landscaping, architecture and interior design. It also embodies the spirit of one of Southern California's most exclusive communities through the warm hospitality of its multilingual, European-trained staff, its signature beach club, and a unique collection of artwork by contemporary painter Glenn Ness. The Carbon Beach Club features California coastal cuisine with Pacific Rim accents that is complemented by an outstanding and extensive list of hand-selected small-production wines from California's premier wine regions. The dining room offers both indoor and outdoor dining, both of which boast breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the sound of the tumbling surf below.Guest rooms feature private balconies, minibars, coffeemakers, hairdryers, bathrobes, DVD players, safes, complimentary high-speed Internet access, fireplaces (most rooms), and private hot tubs (some rooms). ... more   less
