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

We stayed last May after eating at the restaurant on a previous location. Our stay overall was good but unfortunately the service was sub par. We were there when a bridal party had a good many of the rooms booked which meant the restaurant was always full. My husband and I have four kids and made the splurge to stay... More

Spent a week here while at a conference at Pepperdine University. We were in a pier view king which allowed ample room for the 3 of us (2 adults and a rowdy 4 year old) while being more budget friendly than the oceanfront rooms. The hotel started to feel like a home away from home. Nice touches in the room... More

My family (brother and parents) stayed at the 'Malibu Beach Inn' after a ten hour flight from London. I can honestly tell you that it was the best choice possible. The location was beautiful, and the staff gave us a very warm welcome. After going on the beach (which was reserved for hotel guests only) we had a superb meal... More

It is the best thing ever to look at the ocean from your comfortable bed. The rooms are small but the balcony is private. Very thoughtful touches such as a Happy Anniversary sconce outside our room, macaroons and bubbly water, complimentary magazine selection, and a Happy Anniversary Menu. Plus they have homemade chocolate chip cookies at the front desk! If... More

This is for sure the best hotel in Malibu. Right in the beach with beach access. The rooms all have amazing ocean views. The staff was great all very friendly. Turn down service sis a great job. We booked months in advance it sells out fast in the summer. A great get away no doubt

This hotels is one of the best I have stayed in - mainly due to location. It is quite pricey but then I guess to wake up and be able to hear the waves lapping down below comes at a price. The hotel itself is really well decorated and sitting by the fire pit on an evening overlooking the pacific... More

Since its inception in 1989, Malibu Beach Inn has become a beloved destination for both leisure and business travelers.

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
