My wife and I spent this past Valentines day here and it was one of our best every. The suite was a prefect setting for love and romance. We also dined in and the dinner and dessert was 5 star quality. I must say after nearly 15 years of marriage we fell back in love in this suite. We plan... More

Great hotel and super friendly staff. Close enough to the ocean without oceanic prices. Very nice breakfast buffet and friendly servers. Cool thing about the hotel also is the ability to rent comfortable beach bikes and hang out by the ocean.

We held our daughter's wedding at The Belamar in Manhattan Beach and it went off w/o a hitch. The staff, especially, Elizabeth, was flawless in their execution of our plans for the wedding. The patio looked gorgeous, the pre-dinner reception was fun and enjoyable, the dinner was delicious, and the after-dinner dancing was enjoyed by all. The Belamar went out... More

This was our second visit. It is close to LAX, the beach, shopping, and restaurants. It has a pool, hot tub, and garden, parking and a bar. The style is modern/chic. Medium to small size property. Price is extremely fair.

The Belamar is an ideal place to stay if you are visiting LA and want to stay near the airport or Manhattan Beach, but also experience some California coast. There is a walking trail that starts near the hotel, which connects down to downtown Manhattan Beach. The rooms are nicely decorated and the hotel offers free WiFi and complimentary coffee... More

Dear Sean T., WOW! Great review, we are so thankful you took the time to write us such a nice review of the Belamar in Manhattan Beach. We are a good value and about a mile from the beach-so it is a 20 min walk or you can rent one of our beach cruisers and cruise to the beach in... More

Brad, on the front desk was very helpful and suggested that we could hire the town car and driver. This... More

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

My mom and I really enjoyed this quaint, cozy hotel. That being said, they were tall on service and amenities. Our room was small but quite comfortable. Nice plus were the robes in the closet! We took advantage of the hot tub (although it closes at 10 pm, which was bad since we came in late two nights), the restaurant... 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.
