The location of this hotel is exceptional, overlooking the ocean in the center of Malibu. You can not be any closer to the water as almost all the rooms are essentially hanging right over it. The setup is motel-style with outdoor entrances to each room, but this adds to the casual but upscale vibe. The lobby is small but nice,... More

What an upgrade! Hadn't been to this hotel in years and the renovation is top notch and takes full advantage of the Malibu ocean front property. The standard ocean front queen room is compact and was so well appointed it felt spacious ( and my husband is 6'7" ) we LOVED that the bed faces the ocean! The view is... More

What more can I say that my title doesn't say? The hotel's location is what one is paying for (have you seen the price of real estate in these parts?) but it is worth every penny.

This is a pricey, but fantastic hotel, right next to the ocean. The rooms are great and they have a balcony overlooking the beach/ocean. The layout of the bathrooms are the best I have ever seen. If you can afford this, go!

This place is right on the beach. Whilst it is not cheap, it is very good. The food and service are excellent. Walking from there along the beach is a near perfect experience. There is no gym or pool there however one can have complimentary access to a good gym across the road.

A small boutique hotel, with well appointed (although small) rooms. Great views of the ocean. The restaurant is right on the beach will plenty of sunshine, views, and adjustable umbrellas. The beach area is small, but the lounges are comfortable and beach service is spectacular

The hotel is beautiful, how could it not be? Its Malibu and on the water. The views were gorgeous and loved spending time on the balcony overlooking the pier. The room was lovely and comfortable, really nice accommodations. However, I just didn't feel like I was staying in a luxury hotel worthy of the price. Paint chipped, toilet seat worn,... More

Staying in Malibu

Neighborhood Profile
Malibu
The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush, green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted with stunning rock formations. In certain areas, where the ocean waves are just right, surfers can be seen bobbing in the water. Up in the mountains to the east hikers take in truly stunning views of the ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles landscape. And along Pacific Coast Highway, restaurants are filled with visitors and locals from all walks of life. Stumble into the right place at the right time, and you’ll likely encounter a celebrity.

Since its inception in 1989, Malibu Beach Inn has become a beloved destination for both leisure and business travelers. After a complete, contemporary multi-million-dollar renovation, Malibu Beach Inn re-opened its doors as the only luxury oceanfront hotel destination between Santa Monica and Santa Barbara, offering guests unsurpassed levels of luxury and service on the sands of exclusive Carbon Beach. The Malibu Beach Inn is approximately 22 miles from Los Angeles International Airport. The hotel embraces the serene beauty of the Malibu coastline through its landscaping, architecture and interior design. It also embodies the spirit of one of Southern California's most exclusive communities through the warm hospitality of its multilingual, European-trained staff, its signature beach club, and a unique collection of artwork by contemporary painter Glenn Ness. The Carbon Beach Club features California coastal cuisine with Pacific Rim accents that is complemented by an outstanding and extensive list of hand-selected small-production wines from California's premier wine regions. The dining room offers both indoor and outdoor dining, both of which boast breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the sound of the tumbling surf below.Guest rooms feature private balconies, minibars, coffeemakers, hairdryers, bathrobes, DVD players, safes, complimentary high-speed Internet access, fireplaces (most rooms), and private hot tubs (some rooms). ... more   less
