My recent stay at Malibu Beach Inn was my second time at this property for a short stay. The hotel is situated overlooking the ocean on Carbon Beach and has fantastic views. I was given a room with a fire place that is perfect for a chillier weather stay. I had a nice balcony on this visit which was really...

Hard to beat the location. We were very much disspapointed by Malibu but the hotel provided us with a beautiful enclave in a place that is basically not more than a massive highway surrounded by terrible architecture. Comfortable rooms with a nice balcony with the best possible ocean views make you forget the ugly environment. Beach staff is wonderful. Great...

My wife and I recently toured Southern California for our Anniversary. The entire trip was wonderful and we stayed at beautiful extravagant hotels the entire time. But the highlight came when spent the last few days of our trip in Malibu. We had planned to only have lunch at this hotel to enjoy the awesome ocean view as seen from...

The room was excellent with the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. Since there was only two of us the room seemed to be the perfect size with a balcony and view of the ocean. I can't image anyone going to a hotel by the beach who doesn't want to hear the sound of the ocean. We were...

I have stayed here many times over the years since it first opened. It is consistently excellent. The staff, rooms, beach, food - always suburb. I would highly recommend this quiet resort. I continually look forward to returning!

We pre-paid this hotel more than six months in advance for a special last night in California before flying home to the Gulf. Absolutely made to feel special from the moment we arrived (after a long bumper to bumper ride from Carmel by he front desk staff and the Valet Parking. We had missed the sunset, but the nighttime view...

This is a really nice hotel which offers great service at a great location. They offer valet parking which is handy. Food is excellent but if you want to go to Nobo which is 100yds up the road, you need to book early. There was even a whale just outside our room this morning. Malibu pier is just 100yds away...

What a wonderful hotel! Beautiful views, amazing staff - so attentive! - and delicious food. Loved it. Rooms in the side have more road noise and less fantastic views so splurge for the full ocean view.

Thank you so much to the staff of Malibu Beach Inn for making my 'time off' vacation PERFECT! At the end of October I decided I wanted to get some 'ocean' time. I had just returned from Martha's Vineyard and wanted to spend some time in California before winter sets in where I live in Oklahoma. I remember loving Malibu,...

The good: Friendly staff, stunning sea front view. The bad: Double glass door didn't block the loud wave noises, thin wall(you can hear people talking beside you and walking above you), not generous with coffee/tea/snacks, old furnitures, bed too soft, pillows too flat and you can't closed the curtain 100%

Dear Calidomca, Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay! We are so glad you enjoyed your time with us in Malibu but are sorry that the sounds were bothersome; especially those of the ocean as most of our guests travel to Malibu in order to enjoy the sound of the waves. Please know that...

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
