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

We had a great time staying here for the Rose Bowl. We loved the food at the restaurant- really special and tasty. We love the proximity to the bark chip trail that goes to the beach, we like being across the street from Manhattan Beach Mall. The pool area catches the sun even on a bit of a chillier LA... More

Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful during our stay. Rooms were very comfortable and the hotel was well-appointed. We were travelling as a family of 3 (grown daughter), and the front desk staff made sure we had a larger room so the 3 of us had plenty of room to spread out.

If you seek a stylish, comfortable, hip hotel in Manhattan Beach this is the place! My traveling companion, my dog and I spent three great nights at this property. I was so grateful to find such a lovely pet friendly property. Our room was beautifully appointed and quite comfortable. The lobby is intimate and inviting with fruit infused water and... More

My daughter and I stayed here for one night before we flew home to NZ. The location is so much better than the airport hotels as there is a shopping mall and restaurants directly across the road. The cab ride from the airport is only 20 bucks and well worthwhile to get out of the barren airport precinct. We intended... More

We spent one night at the Belamar. Ricky checked us in and after a flight from Florida that was less than ideal we were not so happy. Upon seeing that Ricky upgraded us to a jr suite to put the smiles back on our faces. !! The hotel is pet friendly which was a bit different for us to see... More

We stayed at the Belamar on a friend's recommendation. It is a great hotel for the price, perfect location close to shopping and the beach, Hollywood glam decor, excellent restaurant. Service was top-notch from everyone we encountered, from the front desk to the valet parkers to the servers in the Second Story restaurant. One server in particular, Genka, really made... More

The decor and atmosphere of this boutique hotel is modern and fun. It's only a few minutes from the beach and a very affordable price for the area. Would absolutely recommend to anyone visiting Manhattan beach.
