It might not look like much from the pacific coast highway but this charming boutique hotel will keep you wanting to stay another night! First you walk into this foyer/front desk and you look straight out at the Pacific Ocean. Wonderful deck dining and inside too.

My fiancé and I were guests at the Malibu Beach Inn from 1/22-2/4. We stayed in the King Premium Ocean Front Room which had fantastic views of the ocean. Our room wasn’t very big, but it was comfortable with nice decor and furniture. My favorite part about our room was that we had a private double balcony. I love how... More

Went there for our 40th wedding anniversary. Staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. Food in the restaurant was outstanding and at night they supplied heaters and blankets so you could eat outside facing the lit beach and listening to the ocean

Beautiful setting, fully remodeled in the past 2-3 years. We have stayed here before the remodeling and after and it has been a memorable experience. Most rooms face the ocean and you can sleep with the balcony doors open so you can hear the ocean rolling in all night. Wake up to a beautiful ocean view and sandy beach. We... More

We had 48hrs to spend between LAX flights, and I wanted to hear the sound of the waves. I grew up overlooking the ocean on the northern coast, but since I am now an inlander, I have to pay to sleep by the sound of the waves.

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.

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
