We spent one night here on our Pacific Coast Highway trip and enjoyed our brief stay. The room was well appointed and the staff were helpful and efficient. Our only issue was in our attempt to "listen to the ocean" we ended up listening to traffic sounds through much of the night. Ask about the placement of your room to... More

This hotel is the perfect location in all of southern CA. Our room was a queen ocean view room on the third floor and the waves during high tide were basically tucked right under the hotel making it feel like we were on the water. During low tide there is easy access to a great private beach area. We loved... More

Fall off the balcony and you're in the water! Beautiful location, the sound of the Pacific breaking on the shore underneath your balcony, laid back but attentive service. We just keep coming back. A great base from which to explore the Pacific Coast or head into Santa Monica, LA, or just sit back and relax.

The Malibu Beach Inn is a lovely hotel. The rooms are finished to a high standard and the location is virtually unbeatable. We really enjoyed our stay. I would definitely return.

I recently surprised my husband with his first trip to Southern California. Malibu boasts incredible coast line views and I made the Malibu Beach Inn our first stop on night one. I requested a "quiet" ocean view room given the other comments on this side about noisy rooms at the Inn. We were really impressed when we proceeded to our... More

We stayed here last November and had a good experience so we were very excited to return. Now that we are here we wish we were anywhere else. Instead of sitting in the room listening to the ocean we are listening to the cars on the Pacific Coast Highway. I honestly feel like I am in an inexpensive motel room... More

Many stays here, it only gets better. A block away from Nobu, crashing waves and a sunset that rules the world. I've had business meets, a family weekend and now on a special get-a-way with my daughter. Worth every cent. Do it. A 1 minute check in and the bags were in the room. I like that.

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.
