“Lovely rooms close to the beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013 via mobile

The best room during our 14 day roadtrip in California including fireplace, kingsize bed and large bathroom. Very nice location, friendly staff again, beautiful rooms! 2 minutes walk from beautiful beach. The staff let us check out 2 hours later so that we could enjoy the beach!!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We stayed one night, Aug 11, 2013, attending a wedding at Sunsets (around the corner). Had room #21 (upstairs), a renovated room. Very nice and clean: bedroom, large bathroom (large shower, no tub), and a separated mini living room. No TV in the bedroom, it's in the living area, ok for us. Also had a pull out couch (we did not use). Small outside balcony with a mountain view (no ocean view). Parking is tricky but doable. The staff was excellent! Thanks for taking care of us Ashley! Kristys Restaurant has a great view and good food. A nice place to stay in Malbu. Would stay there again.

Please pay no notice to some of the negative reviews on Tripadvisor, this is a great place to stay if you want to be near beautiful Zuma beach. The hotel is being extensively renovated and Ivy, the manager, is incredibly professional and friendly. She really went out her way to make our stay as fun and pleasant as possible. There is a great restaurant next door as well. This was an unexpected gem. You won't be disappointed!!

Nice location, easy to find, inexpensive...for Malibu. We had a renovated room with a Garden view....highly recommend a renovated room! Biggest complaint by far was parking...leave the SUV at home, though it is even tight for a normal car! Kristy's is nice but really needs to be open later than 9 PM...was also strange having to go to the bar to get ice. Front office was nice, though not real knowledgeable about the local area. Easy walking access to Zuma Beach and Point Dume. We would stay here again....as long as it was a renovated room...

In town for wedding and options are limited in Malibu. I had the Jr. suite and it is ok although there is no tv in the bedroom. Only one in the sitting area. Spacious and adequately appointed. Parking is tricky. Nice pool. Would stay there again if I could get the same room. I saw some that were not as nice. I did like the frig in the room as well as the coffee maker.

Since we have family who live in the North end of Malibu, this so-called "Inn" was the only real choice for a two night stay. A shabby small room, almost no amenities, badly needing a makeover, including the bathroom with a stained toilet bowl from the 50s(?), the wall mounted TV with a sharp edge waiting for someone's head to get speared. Three remotes with no instructions. Price was way out of scale for what it offered. The restaurant was decent, but not ready for prime time - as exemplified by a wine list with incorrect vintages. Given that the three recent reviews -- two with five stars and one with four -- were no doubt honest, I have to assume that we have different criteria and expectations. It should be noted that out of the 95 reviews, 32 were "terrible" and 9 were "poor", a total of 41 or more than 40% of those who stayed at this Inn, so we weren't alone in our opinion.

Exceeded our expectations! The staff was very friendly and had a lot of great recommendations for restaurants, hikes and shopping. They had maps on hand and some good tips! The room was fabulous! Our room, 119, was one of the smaller spaces but met all of our needs! Great decor, cozy private patio and close to the beach! I'd highly recommend this place!
