I liked this hotel. Comfortable beds and nice rooms. I often spend one night in Los Angeles on my way to New Zealand and thought I would give this one a try. There is a walking path to Manhattan Beach which I enjoyed but for people who don't like walking they would want to drive. Restaurant on premises was good.... More

Spent one night at the Belamar on our way from Auckland to Costa Rica. We were very impressed with this hotel. The rooms were very well decorated and nicely furnished. We had a large balcony with a fridge and coffee maker, shame there was no kettle! The staff were really great, we were warmly welcomed by the manager upon arrival... More

The Belamar at Manhattan beach feels like a 60s-era beachfront motel - in the most wonderful sense possible. The room I had was very spacious, with a king bed, a desk, a lounge chair and a flat screen TV. The bathroom was clean, updated, and thoughtfully stocked with soap and two sets of lotion and shampoo/conditioner. The hotel offers valet... More

Dear David_T_Zarraga, Many thanks for a great review, we are happy to hear you like our 'retro' feel and the amenities of the Hotel. My apologies that the treadmill is out, we will be sure to repair it as soon as possible. The walking trail nearby is awesome and a great little trek to the strand from the Hotel. We... More

Cute little modest 'boutique' hotel. Room's are very quiet on courtyard side of hotel considering proximity to major road. Pretty balcony, nice upgrades/decor, small but well-appointed bathroom. Wonderful staff! An excellent alternative to the plethora of chain hotels in the area. 10 min drive to/from LAX and 15 min run, 30 min EASY walk to Manhattan Beach via attractive, and... More

First gave us a room on the main floor that was dark and looked out on construction material (trash?). They had other rooms available, so why give us this one? They changed it, which was good. Front desk personnel were not helpful. When I waited for any valet person to show up to park my car (there is no self-parking... More

Dear Colorado Parker, Thank you for staying with the Belamar in Manhattan beach. I am so sorry to hear that you felt the room experience with your first room was not up to par and that you also had to wait for valet. We will be sure to review our staffing level as we would not ever want any guests... More

I recently was fortunate enough to be a guest at the hotel. From the minute I arrived, Rickey, at the front desk, was smiling, professional, and dealt calmly with the host of guests waiting to check into their rooms. While I was there, the female bartender at Second Story, whipped up the best chocolate martini I've ever tasted! I wish... More

We booked this hotel thinking that it would be at least within walking distance of the beach...it's not! It is almost a good 5-10 minute drive and certainly not within walking distance. It is right off the main road and the traffic could be easily heard in our room. The rooms are an adequate size, but getting a little dated... More
