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

Stayed here for two nights. We had a deluxe 2 queen room just above the pool. The furnishing was adequate and it was a bright and sunny room. One of the overhead light did not work but we did not bother to report it as we were out most of the time. We did use the beach cruisers to bike... More

My family & I spent 3 nights at the Sea View. I made all the arrangements with James, the very friendly General Manager. Although there was a miscommunication regarding my desire for a King Bed, the apartment was more than enough space for us . Very Comfortable beds , clean kitchen & baths but completely dated. Flat screens TV's in... More

You can not beat the Sea View Inn insofar as location and accommodations..Manhattan Beach is just beautiful and this hotel is a gem. Just blocks away from the ocean which you can walk to in less than 5 minutes. We had a deluxe room (301)which had an ocean view without getting out of bed, it also had a huge bathroom.... More

Altho we didn't luck out with a room with an ocean view, I think mostly because we had a 2 queen room - if I stood on my tippy toes by the air conditioning unit window, I could see the ocean...decent sized room, view of small pool, with small desk, microwave. Rooms are a tad 'dated'....Short but steep walk to... More

We stayed in one of the penthouses. It is certainly adequate but we are talking plastic chairs on a tiny deck that looks over the roof top at the ocean below. I enjoyed the place and if you have a family that needs an affordable place to stay that is near the beach then this is great. However, it is... More

We were very pleased. Staff helpful. Very clean. Pleasant environment. 2 block walk to the beach was a little steep (but good exercise). We enjoyed the restaurants in the area--all within walking distance. Poncho's Mexican Restaurant was excellent food and service. Other tourists in the area were very friendly.
