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

We were referred to the Malibu Beach Hotel by a good friend who lives local. We were treated so well and enjoyed our two nights there. Rooms had beautiful ocean views and we enjoyed leaving the sliding door open at night to hear the waves Rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Would return do sure

We truly enjoyed our stay here. The room was clean, comfortable and our view was amazing! The staff was so friendly and restaurant was great! This is a great hotel for a romantic weekend away or girls' weekend get away. It is short walk to the pier, shopping at Malibu lumberyard and nobu.

While the options in Malibu are next to nill, this property is well appointed and beautiful. My issue was related to policies geared toward vacationers rather than business travelers.

The View and the bed were the best things about this hotel. Service and staff not so much. Kept having to call the front desk and ask for things for the room. We stayed three nights and there were three of us sharing a room. Not uncommon. Would not stay there again.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Magnificently nestled right on the sands of famed "Billionaire’s Beach," Malibu Beach Inn is a spectacular ocean-front getaway within minutes of LA. 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
