Wow, where to begin? Incredible location. We went for an early Christmas trip and were able to get an ocean view king room (which of course has spoiled me for any other room there!). Service was friendly and professional, from valet who parked our car to the front desk. Quaint, homey lobby was beautifully decorated for the holidays and inviting.... More

Question. Would you give a merchant a copy of the front/back of your credit card and Photo ID to hold a reservation for a $68 pre-fixe menu? If not, then don't include Malibu Beach Inn/Carbon Beach Club in your selection list for Holiday meal reservations in Malibu. I reserved on Open Table only to be contacted by the hotel to... More

I stayed in another hotel, but came here for dinner (made a reservation before to get the terrace table) - I absolutely love the place! The scenery is wonderful, food was great, service as well. There is a beautiful view of Malibu pier from here, even saw the dolphins swimming close to the beach and it's the closest thing to... More

As everyone says, the hotel is right on the beach. Unfortunately, it wasn't much of a beach..a rather thin strip that disappeared at high tide during mid-morning for a significant part of the day. Our stay was in November. As far as a 'beach resort,' it is lacking in that respect. The property is nice but as close as it... More

The hotel has a great location in Malibu and is about 40 minutes from LAX and about an hour, with several different routings (great sightseeing), to Hollywood, traffic not included. We had the oceanfront queen room, overlooking the pier. The room was very well appointed, with a sofa, desk, large bathroom, and even a fireplace. We had dinner at the... More

Small boutique hotel nestled between Pacific Coast Highway and Carbon Beach. The view from our private balcony was spectacular as we watched sunrises and the ocean waves, just like the million dollar homes nearby. Our room was beautifully decorated in contemporary style with a queen bed, desk, large sofa, tv and a lovely orchid nestled in the corner. Included was... More

We spent three weeks travelling down from the beautiful San Francisco to Malibu, Malibu being our final leg of a fab holiday and wanted to relax and chill out.

We recently stayed here for a wedding. Our room was on the beach- 5 steps- and was in great shape, especially for something right on the water. Room was spacious and all the hotel facilities were great. Service was excellent. You are near the Malibu Pier so always something to see and do.

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.
