Love, love, love staying there! The staff is very accomodating and so nice. Five of us girls go there every year for the Manhattan Beach Open and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. So close to the beach and you can rent bikes, chairs, umbrellas, boogy boards, beach towels, basically, just about anything you need. The rooms are very spacious... More

We visited the Sea View Inn six years ago and returned this summer. When planning our trip around California, the one place that was a definite visit was Manhattan Beach and the Sea View Inn. We loved it six years ago, and it didn't disappoint this year either. The suites are roomy and decorated to match the beach setting. The... More

This week I was on business travel in LA with an associate and decided to try a new location. I was pleasantly surprised by this little gem. We were greeted with accommodating service and 2 great rooms which included plenty of space and ocean views. Took a couple of bikes and went into town and had a great time. This... More

If you are looking for the Hilton or any other hotel with more tan 4 stars and room service then this's is not for you. However, if you are looking for a small roomy place with a great location close to the beach then you have found a gem here. Our room was a bit older but was updated, clean... More

We've stayed here over the years for the close location to one of the cleanest beaches in So Cal. The hotel is 2 blocks from the beach and there are multiple restaurants nearby. However, if you're looking for a swank property, i.e. the W, Lowes, this is not your hotel. If you want a clean place to sleep, minimal ammenities... More

We stayed at the Sea View Inn on two separate nights, in rooms 402 and 404, which are closest to the beach. The proximity to the beach, sunset watching, and large rooms are pluses. Beyond that, we were very disappointed with our stays. The hotel is located on a busy street, with motorcycles, buses, and cars zooming by day and... More

Perfect location and view of the ocean from my room/balcony. Only two blocks from the beach and surrounded by great restaurants. I spent 9 days and always felt safe, most days I would leave early in the morning and return after dark. More storage space in the bathroom and closet would have been nice. The shower pressure was fabulous, however... More

I just spent 11 days at the Sea View Inn, 8 days with my family and 3 days on a girls' trip. Everything was perfect! We had a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with an amazing view. We loved the convenience of the complimentary towels, chairs, bikes, and boogie boards. The beach is beautiful, and not crowded. Lots of restaurants... More

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
