Had tickets to a show at the Forum and wanted to make a weekend of it. Found the Sea View Inn and decided to get a room. Having read some of the reviews I wasn't sure what to make of this place. I knew Manhattan Beach is a nice community so I booked figuring if the bad reviews were true,... More

Last night of a 5 night stay, and I have to say coming all the way from England using this as a port of call on our road trip has been a delight. The guys on the front desk are brilliant, free bikes, beach towels and boogie boards available, small but well kept pool area, good sized rooms and free... More

We stayed at the Sea View Inn from July 16 - 21, 2015. The location was perfect. My wife and my two kids (12 & 14) really enjoyed the proximity to the beach. The sand and water was fantastic. We stayed in Apt 507 and it had a direct view to the beach. The wifi was great for the kids... More

I am a returning guest of the Sea View Inn... reason being: LOCATION loaner beach cruiser bikes allows you to ride your bike along the bike trail minutes away from the Manhattan Beach Pier. If you get a room facing west you will have breathtaking views!

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

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
