We stayed here over the weekend for a mini last minute vacation. Absolutely loved it! Great staff, great rooms. Make sure and get a room with a balcony....totally worth it! Good little pool and hot tub. Good locations! Just minutes from LAX and a short walk or $5 uber from Manhattan beach! Location is key! The restaurant was amazing for... More

Great little boutique hotel in Manhattan Beach, just 1 mile from the beach. The beds are comfy and the staff is super friendly - they really make you feel at home. I stay here a lot on business and I choose to stay here vs. a larger brand with points. The food is great - never had a bad meal.... More

Good boutique hotel, close to shops/ mall and a 5 min drive to the beach. Staff were excellent and could not have been more friendly or helpfull. My only issue was a sewerage smell (I stayed on the 3rd floor) and poor drainage in the shower. Overall the room was great and I like the fact that you can open... More

I'm so frustrated at the smell of fishy raw sewage in rooms 223,225,227. This is supposed to be a three room suite. And it is TERRIBLE. I mean on all fronts. It is not ok. So we notified them this afternoon. Meanwhile, I was trying to make the situation bearable. We aired out the room by opening the balcony door.... More

Dear Nikalove, Thank you for your stay and review of the Belamar in Manhattan Beach. I am so sorry that you had encountered such a nasty smell from the room you were in.

The Belamar is a wonderful hotel that offers many amenities. Chocolate chip cookies on arrival, fresh lemon water in the lobby and the Second story restaurant has excellent food. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff are very accomodating and friendly!

Very nice hotel close to the Manhattan beach mall. Despite being on Sepulveda the very large majority of the rooms are quite. The personnel is extremely friendly, the rooms are clean and the restaurant is good. Recommended as buisiness hotel. The only negative is that you are forced to use the vallet parking and tips are kind of expected on... More

We stayed here for one night on a quick trip down to LA. The decor in the hallways is a little odd with giant pictures of retro Barbi heads, but if you can get past that you'll be fine. The hotel is close to a busy street but our room was off a pretty outdoor courtyard and didn't have any... More

Don't be fooled by the address , this perfectly pleasant hotel is closer to the freeway than the beach . Downtown Manhattan Beach is a nice 2km walk down the Hill on a new pine trail but if you are staying for longer then hire a car. Rooms ok . Air con noisy and antiquated. Restaurant disappointing . Pool indoors.... More

The hotel seemed to be trying something it wasn't. When I think of boutique, I picture a more polished, Art Deco style...I'd say the Belamar was halfway their....furnishings almost seemed like an afterthought. There wasn't any armoire/dresser in our suite, we lived out of a suitcase for a week. The lighting in the bathroom was awful. The missus looked like... More
