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

Dear Greg G, Thank you for your stay with us, we appreciate you taking the time to review the hotel. I apologize if you somehow got the impression we are directly on the beach. We are about a 5 min drive from Manhattan Beach pier and about a 15-20 min walk from the Strand. I am concerned that the restaurant... 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

stayed here a few years back for a week on business. close to the airport and beach, tidy, friendly staff, great bar and decent car park. rooms are good and clean. didn't spend too much time there as i was working, but a good place to stay if you need to be in the area.

Had a great stay at the Belamar. Big room with a nice, comfortable bed. Clean bathroom. Big plus with a nice pool area. Good breakfast and the Second story restaurant served us our best dinner during our whole road trip! It's a must! Really kind and service oriented staff. Valet parking for only 10 dollars/day. Would def stay here again.
