I've been on a nostalgic kick this year visiting my old haunts when I lived in Malibu. Decided to stay here., and sadly it's not the same place that it was when Marty and Vicky owned it and Dan managed it in the 1990's. Then it was warm and hospitable and made you feel like you lived in town during... More

I have tried and been refused 3 previous times to review this Hotel. Suffice it so say that it is a shadow of its former self, only the walls have stayed the same. The staff is lacking in enthusiasm and in fear of the many managers who lurk around yet do nothing. Gone is the family feel, replaced by a... More

I don't have a bad word to say about Malibu Beach Inn. The place is pure perfection. Our room was lovey, well looked after and clean. We had a gorgeous view of the ocean. We slept every night with the balcony doors open, just so we could fall asleep to the sounds of the waves...bliss! The staff were wonderful! Extremely... More

Malibu Beach Inn bills itself as Luxury Beachfront hotel. There is absolutely nothing luxurious about this hotel. The main problem is that the building itself certainly never was intended for anything approaching a 4 or 5 star property. It is basically a upgraded motel and it shows everywhere. The remodeled rooms are nice with great views of the Malibu Pier... More

My husband and I were attending a wedding in the LA area and spent a few days in Malibu beforehand. I booked this hotel based on reviews here and suggestions from friends. Our room had a beautiful ocean view. It was on the end of the hallway and had a good amount of space in the room and bathroom. Comfortable... More

We stayed for a night in August, walked down to Nobu for lunch then came back and are huge room was ready. Very spacious, stunning views and staff that go above and beyond. Even the newspaper that was delivered in the morning was a copy of The Australian which I thought was a really nice touch. We had dinner at... More

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

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.
