Bargain rates, free parking, beach towels/chairs and bikes while you're an easy walk to the beach bike path and the Pacific Ocean - that should seal the deal for you especially since this is affluent Manhattan Beach. The yummy bakery (scones, pretzels, muffins, breakfast sandwich, cookies, etc) across the street opens @ 8 am but there are other options for... More

The Inn as stated in previous reviews is very low key and bare boned. Tiny bathroom, but with an ocean view, you actually see the ocean as you shower which is fantastic. The shower has great water pressure. But there is no room to even put a toiletry bag. One nightstand. Noisy. Super nice front desk. Great bikes. Beach chairs... More

Staff was excellent. Having the bikes, beach towels, etc for the kids to use was a definite plus. Room was clean, cool and quiet. Internet was fast allowing for work during our down time. Close to the beach and great food along the street.

We loved our stay at Sea View Inn. We would give 5 star rating however there was a mix up with our reservation and had to change rooms mid-week because they had booked our room to someone else. Hotel Location to beach and sights is ideal. Staff is friendly and little extras like courtesy beach towels, umbrellas and bikes is... More

Love, love, love staying there! The staff is very accomodating and so nice. Five of us girls go there every year for the Manhattan Beach Open and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. So close to the beach and you can rent bikes, chairs, umbrellas, boogy boards, beach towels, basically, just about anything you need. The rooms are very spacious... More

We visited the Sea View Inn six years ago and returned this summer. When planning our trip around California, the one place that was a definite visit was Manhattan Beach and the Sea View Inn. We loved it six years ago, and it didn't disappoint this year either. The suites are roomy and decorated to match the beach setting. The... More

This week I was on business travel in LA with an associate and decided to try a new location. I was pleasantly surprised by this little gem. We were greeted with accommodating service and 2 great rooms which included plenty of space and ocean views. Took a couple of bikes and went into town and had a great time. This... More

If you are looking for the Hilton or any other hotel with more tan 4 stars and room service then this's is not for you. However, if you are looking for a small roomy place with a great location close to the beach then you have found a gem here. Our room was a bit older but was updated, clean... More

We've stayed here over the years for the close location to one of the cleanest beaches in So Cal. The hotel is 2 blocks from the beach and there are multiple restaurants nearby. However, if you're looking for a swank property, i.e. the W, Lowes, this is not your hotel. If you want a clean place to sleep, minimal ammenities... More
