We have just stayed at The Malibu Beach Inn for the first time and cannot wait to come back. There are a few minor faults (mainly housekeeping) but the staff, food and location make them seem insignificant. Staff are friendly and unbelievably helpful The restaurant serves some of the best food in the area and has an imaginative menu Our... More

I hesitate to say anything negative because the staff and manager were great and very accommodating. Everyone was friendly and helpful, and the room I was in was nice with an amazing view! There were so many smallish complaints that I simply can't recommend this hotel *for what it costs*, however. At half the rate, I'd give it 5 stars.... More

We have stayed here 4 times in last 3 years. The beach location is great and the rooms and Resturant are both very good. We prefer smaller resorts and this size is perfect for us. The pricing is comparable to any quality Resort on the beach in this part of California Will be back next year again.

This 41 room boutique hotel is located on the beach in Malibu - directly on the beach. Stairs from the lobby connect directly to the sand where a team of incredibly service oriented people set up lounge chairs, umbrellas and provide food/beverage service from the hotel on the private beach during low tide times. Onsite restaurant appears to be quite... More

Excellent food and sublime ocean views while dining, but the rooms are sub-par and quite pricey. The rooms are too small to stand for more than a night or two and the bathrooms are worse. The dining room offers indoor or and outdoor seating, and sitting outside is a magical treat, if you don't want to stay there, at least... More

Supply and Demand... Location is wonderful.. rooms are small. food is great service is so so... The problem is supply and demand as there are not to many choices in Malibu for hotels and the management/owners do not go out of there way to take care of the customers. Just know that going to the Malibu Beach Inn. The rooms... More

This time I was in the 2nd floor suite which is better than the third floor if you like to feel closer to the ocean. Like the third floor suite, there is no tub. But the view is amazing. Front desk staff is excellent. I had asked for nothing more than espresso drinks and croissants through room service 30 minutes... More

I was in room#211. I enjoyed every moment. Beautiful room. Great staff and service. Watched the sun rise. Drank tea from the balcony in my PJs. Walked the beach. Watched the ocean and wild life. I could not read my book because I was so mismerized with nature. Still having those wonderful memories. I will be back.

We spent one night here on our Pacific Coast Highway trip and enjoyed our brief stay. The room was well appointed and the staff were helpful and efficient. Our only issue was in our attempt to "listen to the ocean" we ended up listening to traffic sounds through much of the night. Ask about the placement of your room to... More

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.
