Pros: great location- close to beach & restaurants, overview room small but view and patio are good, bikes are a plus! Cons: had to change rooms from ocean view rom to view of a fence. Do not get room #305! To be fair, we knew we would have to change rooms however it should have been disclosed the type of... More

Sea View Inn is the perfect place to feel the relaxed beach town atmosphere of Manhattan Beach. I was in a small room with a partial ocean view and though small it was just perfect.. Every inch of space was utilized efficiently. Loved being able to walk to one of the coffee/breakfast spots in the morning. If you are looking... More

I just returned from a well needed girls weekend and we stayed at the Sea View Inn. Our apartment / room was great! It was clean, well decorated and had most things that we would need for the stay. Our view of Manhattan Beach was breath taking as we were able to catch the sunset from our balcony. Easy access... More

We stayed here for three nights and were given a room which didn't have a coffee machine. We asked at the reception for one and were told it was because the owner wanted people to go to his cafe across the road. My family like to be able to make a drink as and when they want not to have... More

We stayed here so we could go to the Slack Key Guitar Festival. James was very helpful and accommodating. He let us check in early (we drove a long way) and offered advice about restaurants, taxi's and where to eat. The room was recently remodeled, or at least it looked like it. It reminded me of a room you would... More

Well, it is near the beach, I'll give them that. About 100 yards, give or take. That's the positive. The negatives: the hotel is on a very busy noisy street. Although the the glass sliders are double pane to reduce noise, the door is cheap thin wood, and the street noise comes right up the stairwell and thru the door,... More

We just got back form MB where we stayed at the Sea View in for 4 nights. Great place for a family as there is a pool (small but nice and warm) and the access to the bikes was a big plus. We had a great ocean view from our room. It was very spacious and clean. We kind of... More

I have been fortunate enough to have been able to stay at the Sea View Inn once or twice a year for the last 20 years. This week was another wonderful visit. Even with the extreme cold rain and winds we were cozy and warm in our lovely luxury ocean view room. As always, James and his staff were wonderful!!

We have spent two stays of four days each at 'Seaview Inn on the Beach' and found it very pleasant and convenient both times (Oct. 2009, Sept. 2013). It provides a calm and secure location to visit the LA area with free parking (a big plus!) and a nice surrounding area, practically on the beach, with nearby shopping and restaurants.... More
