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

Great place to stay near LA. View of the beach and fairly easy access to Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and Hollywood. Plenty of dining nearby in Manhattan Beach. I plan to stay here next time I travel to LA.

The Sea View Inn fulfilled every promise it made. The 2 bed / 2 bath apartment was perfect for 4 adults in our family. Living and Dining rooms provided enough room to hang out comfortably and play games in evening. Beds comfortable. Everything clean. Great 180 degree ocean view. These are basic accommodations at a great rate. MB location provides... More
