My husband, daughter and I stayed one night in The Belamar on our way to London at the end of July. We found the hotel very comfortable. As in most hotels in USA the room was large. Good for 3 adults. Our room was on the ground floor and backed onto the hotel car park so it was very quiet.... More

We spent 10 nights at the Belamar between 29 August & 07 September 2014. Rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Good breakfast. The Front desk staff was unhelpful and not service-minded, evasive and at times rude. They seemed not familiarized with simple ordinary tasks like giving directions to foreigners or thanking for the stay. At their rate level a higher... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for several nights in the summer of last year. The hotel was clean with comfortable, spacious rooms. The staff were excellent and were always happy to help. The included breakfast was also delicous! The only downside is that it is a way back from the beach and it is somewhat difficult to get around... More

I have been here several times and won't have any problems coming back. Very close to LAX, and just a few blocks away from Manhattan Beach. If you ever stay here make sure to go for their breakfast you will not regret it.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked this hotel for a 2 night stay on our SOCAL vacation. I wanted to stay in Santa Monica but couldn't find anything in the budget, so decided to stay at the Hotel Belamar and drive up to Santa Monica and Malibu for our beach days.

Rooms are nice. Located across the street from two nice malls could walk if you wanted. Valet 10/day. ok courtyard, not nice enclosed glass pool area. Pretty small. Allows dogs if wanted. Not close to ocean about 30 min walk to pier. They recommend following the woodchip trail which is a great running path but takes forever. Best to walk... More

Just wish I could single out people for such terrific customer service. I stupidly did not take names of people at the front desk down when I was there. Such a shame because there were a couple of great ones there. We stayed to be close to Manhattan Beach and the overall experience was very good to excellent. Location was... More

Wonderful hotel.....room is lovely, and clean; restaurant had good food and drinks; staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel is close to "The Strand," the beachside shopping street adjacent to the beach. I was delighted, not knowing what to expect.
