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.

If you have traveled to the California Coast, you would definitely understand why this hotel is amazing. There really isn't alot to choose from if you want to stay on the beach and what is available is either very expensive and very upscale or expensive and 2 stars at best. The Seaview Inn is reasonably priced for the area and... More

We decided to do a "layover" in LA on our way to Hawaii. This hotel was a mistake. The room was tiny. The shower had a window open to the bedroom and to the balcony. That was a first for me! The wi-go was like dial up and the TV didn't work. When we called down to have someone fix... More

We stayed in one of the penthouses. We quickly fell in love with Manhattan Beach. Upon looking for property there, and seeing the associated price tags, we decided not to move. Rather, we plan to continue visiting. For a family of three, this hotel is ideal. The great parts of it: 1. Large amount of space in the room with... More

Let me start by saying our reservation somehow got mixed up and the Manager made it right by "upgrading" us the Beach House (#225A). It was very appreciated and we were so excited for our trip. The Beach house (#225A) is an upstairs apartment with a view of the ocean from the living room window. The unit is straight out... More

Everyone from the staff to the cleaning crew went above and beyond my expectations. The location and view to the ocean was great. I will be staying with Sea View in the future. The complementary bikes, towels, beach toys were a big plus as well. Thank you.

The convenience and friendliness are only outmatched by the value of this gem. I stay here as often as possible and love going back again and again. They have a large variety of rooms to meet different needs (size, view, and cost). Parking and beach toys are included!
