I absolutely loved our stay at The M Motel. The room was clean and furnished retro. The staff helped me immediately with extra towels. Check in was a breeze - very friendly staff. The motel is right across from the Beach. We played all day at the beach and then jumped in the pool! A pool at a motel at... More

I went off a recommendation that said it looked nice, mid century modern, they took dogs and rate was under $200 per night. Last time I do that! Staff was super friendly. When we got to our room my heart sank. A studio style room with wood floors, a king bed w/metal headboard/cotton duvet cover, chrome metal 3 tier rack... More

Rooms are simple and nice, location is great, walking distance to the pier. Prices are reasonable and service was great. The views from the room amazing! We had a minor hiccup wit our reservation but we were able to work through it to resolution. Cute spot would recommend.

Needs fluffier pillows but the overall stay was amazing. The girl in the front office was very helpful and we even met a celebrity in there. we had a balcony overlooking the Pacific Highway and the ocean...it was amazing. I highly recommend staying here.

My wife and I have two kids so a one night getaway is a rarity. We decided to head to malibu for a expnesive (but worth every penny) dinner at nobu in malibu. We just wanted to find a cheaper hotel since all we needed was a comfy bed and a quite place to sleep. Too bad we didn't get... More

We didn't know what to expect should have checked with trip advisor it was a spur of the moment decision in an otherwise well planned out trip. It's hard to beat the Pacific Ocean. The price was right that's for sure. I don't want to be overly critical because again it was last minute. The people were very nice.

Somewhat expensive.. This is however one of the classiest motels I've stayed at. Gorgeous rooms with a tad of retro touch to them. Lovely beds, wooden floors instead of those nasty carpets that most places tend to have, nice photographs on the walls instead of tacky artwork, good size flatscreen, a beautiful bathroom... I'd have no problem living here full... More

This little motel across the street from Nobu Malibu was a real surprise. Clean ,efficient and convenient. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it didn't kill our wallets. Keep it in mind. Good for last minute bookings. Enjoy!

Horrible service they argue with you instead of helping you, dirty rooms with stained old sheets, bugs in the room, No closet or drawers, no privacy because the blinds are broken and missing pieces and the noise is unbearable! I took pictures of all of this to prove it!!! The worst $200 ever spent. Will NEVER stay there again!!!!!!
