BEAUTIFUL sunset ocean view!!! Great location!! Close to the airport, the beach is a mere 3 blocks downhill, and excellent parking which is hard to find in the area. The view from our room was spectacular! We stayed on the top floor above the lobby; we could see from Malibu to Redondo Beach! You could even make out the surfer... More

I adore this hotel - I stay every time I visit California. The rooms are very simply decorated and nostalgic (lots of 90s pastel hues all over), and while it's not the most luxurious or high-tech (the internet was a bit shoddy at times), it's pristinely clean, totally charming and run by lovely and hilarious staff. It's also located perfectly... More

Our room was pretty small, as was the bathroom, but the patio, view and the location totally made up for it. This is a true beach town hotel, the staff are super friendly, and the location was perfect. We had a car, but never even moved it out of the FREE parking, since it was so nice to walk to... More

Very friendly staff. Appreciate their attention to my requests and changes. Easy location for local attractions and the airport - walkable to most restaurants. Both my rooms types had ocean views. Clean, comfortable and simple.

We had a very nice stay at this hotel. The staff were extra friendly. There are many very good restaurants near the hotel. Our room had a clear view of the ocean. Only a few blocks from the beach, it is easy yo walk to the beach. The walk back is a little challenging as it is uphill. Highly recommend... More

I was expecting this place to be comfortable and clean but was disappointed on my arrival at the condition of the room It's an expensive area, but they need to make more of an effort on room decor I would not stay here again it's noisy and not worth the money

Our son recently moved to this North Manhattan Beach neighborhood, so it made sense to stay at the Sea View Inn. We were pleasantly surprised when our apartment was upgraded. We had a great panoramic view of the Pacific from our deck. Apartment was spacious and clean; beds comfy. Staff was friendly. Nice to have plenty of off-street parking. The... More

We have set up friends and family at this gem for years but hadn't stayed yet as guests until this past weekend. Having moved from this neighborhood just last year, we were thrilled to come back and stay in a vintage beach cottage in our old stomping grounds on a walk street a block from the ocean. We opened the... More
