We booked the last room at the last minute for a quick, beach getaway. Our room was small but very clean. Our tv didn't work, but no matter because when you're a block from the beach who needs TV??? The WiFi was slow and parking is definitely a challenge, especially if you're driving a Tacoma to transport your bikes. We... More

I was thrilled to have found a last minute room with bikes. My request, sent after midnight on a Monday, was answered first thing on Tuesday morning. I enjoyed being able to borrow bikes day and night. The room, although somewhat reasonable, was not perfectly clean and lacked windows. The one window looked at a fence located less than three...

Above all, James and his team went over and above to assist us (a young family travelling around the world) in making our stay with them a memorable one. We were treated so well and I have nothing but praise for the way in which the apartment was presented and the way the management team treat their guests - we... More

Friendly,accommodating staff. We stayed in one of the standard rooms with a limited view of the ocean one night, and a larger room with a better view for two nights. Both rooms were clean and comfortable. It is very close to the beach and many restaurants. LAX is about 15 minutes away. I just made reservations for my second stay.... More

Had another stay. Great value room. $20 taxi from lax. Use of bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas a hit for a lay over day. Such a Cali cool location so close to the airport. Staff always understanding of layover too.

This was our first stay at the Seaview Inn and we will be back. Our apartment was very clean and we so appreciated the provided parking space. However, we wished we had two night stands and lamps to be able to read by, instead of just one. James and the other gentlemen were always very nice and quick to get... More

First of all - THANK YOU for not only offering on-site parking two blocks up from the sand but for it being FREE - at no cost. The three gentlemen who worked the front desk were all friendly, new us by name and always smiling. We were offered beach cruisers and rode them every day to local restaurants, the beach... More

We were late in trying to get in, seemed full but the Mgr(?), found a way for us to have one room for two nights, with the promise of trying to secure a room for the third night. Success! The first room, was clean and comfortable, although the bath was tiny, with a sink that was about 12x14in, and no... More
