This is a perfect location on the north end of MB just a short walk downhill to the beautiful white beach. The hotel was very clean and nicely furnished room with a fabulous view of the ocean. You could easily fly in to LAX take a cab to the hotel and never need a car. There are restaurants & shopping... More

The Sea View Inn is a great place...We went just overnight earlier this week. It has a small private pool on location...There are bicycles, beach chairs/towels etc.available on loan with the room and you are only 3 short blocks from the Sea. Free parking. Really the nicest thing about it is the location, Manhattan Beach as a coast town is... More

I have stayed in the Sea View 3 times this year. Twice in the same room. In February my room was priced at 169 a night. Just recently the same room is 211.00 a night. The hotel staff is nice and Helpful and the Inn is the most convenient to everything.,...but...the rooms, specifically the ones that have not been redone... More

Not knowing a thing about this motel we took a shot based on availability. Well, what a pleasant surprise. Nice front desk, nice room and a view of Manhattan Beach and the beautiful Pacific. The location is really perfect. There are restaurants and beach access all over the place. It's a bit of a hike to the Pier and the... More

I was in Manhattan Beach for work and decided to stay at The Sea View because it was close to the beach and not too expensive. I absolutely loved it! Great staff and excellent room. I upgraded for a view room and it was worth it. I would definitely recommend!

Stayed here for a week and really nice place. Close to the beach and walking distance from main shops and restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and price was very reasonable! Rooms are not huge, but big enough, and clean. Nice swimming pool, and great to be able to use the hotel bikes for a nice ride along... More

Stayed here for business and it was awesome! Room was small but comfortable and clean. Front desk was super nice and helpful ( sorry forgot his name!). Did not get to enjoy the free beach chairs but did use the bikes which were so fun. Got upgraded to a room with a view and was very pleased with that. Prime... More

Believe it or not, I stayed here for a week on business, not, sadly, for pleasure. But the sunset views over the ocean each night certainly brightened up the business trip! My colleague and I shared the two bedroom suite. It was spacious, bright, airy and clean. There was a giant bathtub to relax and a small but functional kitchen... More

Had a great stay here in room 106 with lovely sea view. Staff were helpful and friendly and the room was comfortable and fresh. We took advantage of the free bikes available and took a cruise along the beach which was a real bonus. Would definitely return and recommend to all.

Had a great one night stay here with a view of the ocean. The property was lovely- close to beach and restaurants. Room wasn't fancy, but clean and modern. Love that you can rent chairs, towels, etc and don't have to pack your own. Also appreciated that they offered suggestions for locally owned establishments nearby. Would consider a longer stay...
