My family and I stayed here for two nights, and its clear, providing great service is a hotel priority. The front desk staff was great. Friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The outdoor courtyard was lovely, and the pool and hot tub area were attractive, clean, and provided great fun for our family. We grabbed a drink one night at... More

From the moment I spoke with Elizabeth Wallmark and Brad Evans, the word Excellence came to mind. The customer service from (literally) from every person we had contact with was personal, professional & done with true kindness. That is very rare in this day and age. Thank you.

Manhattan Beach is a very nice community that fronts the beach and has a nice casual relaxing vibe.The Belamar reflects this and provides a comfortable stay with fairly large rooms and amenities. My room had a nice balcony and large TV. The Wifi worked well too. A little upgrading here and there would make it a tad classier but for... More

Clean, cool hotel! The reception area is decorated like a beachside retreat. White marble floors, cool blue elements. The check in was smooth and I sampled some tea the hotel had out to sample from a local tea company. Lemon mint water was also available. The rooms are spacious and clean. Large bed and oversized plush headboard. Not far from... More

I very much enjoyed my stay here. The room was very comfortable, staff were all very courteous, and the food (room service) was excellent. I'm sitting in the interior courtyard. Birds are chirping. Yes, I can hear traffic from the road, but it still feels like a private enclave yet so close to LAX airport.

Great hotel, not far from LAX or the beaches. Rooms lovely and clean and quiet. Hired some bikes and spent the day riding the beaches from Manhattan down to Hermosa......beautiful! A little bit far from Hollywood, about a $60 cab ride, but perfect for a 2 day stopover if you want to get out of the city

Great hotel. Had a business meeting for two days. Really close to LAX. Old style hotel that has been done up more modern and funky. Flew in from Sydney Australia on Qantas flight QF11. Qantas was incredible. Great food - by far the best of any plane. However I was annoyed with Qantas because my colleague got bumped to First... More

We had a lovely large room, very clean looking out towards the pool, the beach was only a ten. Knute walk from the hotel and well worth the walk! The hotel pool was small but a nice area to relax and chill, plenty of shops close by too
