This hotel is located in a great location and has great views from some of the rooms! I had a spectacular view from my room! The staff is super friendly and helpful. I had an issue with my room and I was promptly upgraded. The hotel is older and many of the rooms have been upgraded. Rooms are very clean... More

My 64 year old mother and I (I'm 34) took a long weekend trip here from Portland, Oregon. It was an inexpensive place to stay, and although it was nothing extravagant it had everything we needed. It was clean, quiet and a wonderful location. The free bikes made it so we did not need to rent a car, but it... More

We're with those who really like the SeaView Inn for a first-time visit to Manhattan Beach. Our room (#108) was small and simple (see photo) but perfect for two of us and had a very nice walk-in shower. But the real plus was the view of the ocean (1 block away) from the small balcony overlooking Highland Ave, a busy... More

We just love the Sea View Inn! We have stayed there many times and it always feels like we have our own place by the beach. We love Manhattan Beach and this gives us access to everything Manhattan Beach has to offer. Close to freeways, airport and tucked away with the most amazing beach access. We love it! The rooms...

Oh my! Can't say enough about the Sea View! Love, love, love everything about it! Location, staff, accommodations...fabulous! How many places offer use of bikes, boogie boards, towels, sand toys, chairs and umbrellas?!? Perfect for anyone...families, couples or friends. The variety of rooms is wonderful. You can stay in a small room with one bed or a full apartment with... More

The staff at the hotel was very friendly. We loved our ocean view and you can not get a hotel in Manahattan Beach closer to the water! Having access to beach towels, beach toys, chairs, boogey boards and bikes made our stay even better! We will stay here again and again!

Really clean and simple rooms right near the Beach, pool for families. Pay the small premium for a sea view room and your visit will be perfect. Brilliant value for a grand location! Breakfast next boor at the Local Yolk cafe and you're in heaven!

This is the best hotel if you are looking for something with quick access to the beach. Some of the rooms have ocean views. Property is well maintained, but dated. Hotel is split by a busy road so no real sense of community here. This is more like an upscale motel. Lots of places in North Manhattan to walk for... More

Stayed for 1 week during a family visit. Had a " partial ocean view " for 3 nights and a "full Ocean view " for 4 nights. The partial view was a very limited view and the full was better as it looked over the roof tops. highlights are: location is close to shops, restaurants and the ocean. Also the... More

We loved our stay at the beach. The room was very comfortable, the staff very friendly and the location is perfect. Plenty of cosy restaurants and easy acess to the beach. We took advantage of the bicycles supplied by the Inn to tour neighboring beaches. We live less than ten miles away but it felt like a far off place.... More
