As a birthday treat on the last day of our holiday I booked a beach view room for my wife and I. Firstly I will get the positive out of the way - location. Superb, right on the beach and you can hear the waves crashing as you sleep. Perfect for a morning swim/paddle/walk and they even provide towels and... More

Came to Malibu for my sisters wedding weekend. The Malibu beach inn was in a great location. Walking distance to the Malibu country mart and close drive to the wedding site. The service was perfect. The room was large and comfortable. The bathroom products were fantastic. I would 100% stay here again. Wish I could have stayed longer than I... More

Took wife to Malibu Beach Inn for 50th Birthday trip. First time to stay in Malibu area and this is the place to stay. First off, easy to get to from LAX. Traffic is always a challenge in the LA area and anytime you get close to PCH, but this was pretty painless even with some construction. The hotel location... More

My husband and I stayed at the Malibu Beach Inn this past weekend to celebrate a friend's wedding. My friend advised us to book the hotel as she claimed it was the only luxury hotel in Malibu.

We are local Angelenos, and went for a mid-week getaway. Being right on the beach, feels like you're on a ship. Nicely appointed room and bath. I was worried that the Queen View room would feel cramped, it was not, it felt cozy, and having a small balcony to sit on and watch the paddle boarders fall into the sea... More

We stayed just for one night at the Malibu Beach in on 05/23/14 for one night. It was amazing! The views are breathtaking ! The sounds of the ocean and the fireplace in the room was a great experience in itself. Love the decor of this modern room and the location is perfect too.

I was here in Sept 2012 as Trip Advisor advised me, but since I just spent 4 days over the memorial day weekend there, I thought it deserved another look.

I have stayed at the Malibu Beach Inn 5+ times in my life. I have to say every time I stay there I am extraordinarily happy. Let's start with the location. The hotel is built on stilts on the ocean.

We stayed here for one night with our 1.5 year old boy. This is the first stop of our Pacific Coast Highway road trip. The beach is beautiful.

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
