This hotel is a good value and the staff makes it even better. Their attitude is friendly and welcoming. The room was comfortable and peaceful. The restaurant was good and the location was perfect. It was for our in/out of LAX for one night, and it fit the bill!

Book your hotel stay here. Great night away from it all and the staff was great. Happy hour Mon-Sat. Upgrade to the breakfast package stay, totally worth it. Food is amazing and the rooms are what you expect at an upscale hotel. We have stayed here a few times now. Make it your next hotel destination!

The belamar is a sister hotel to the very cool Wayfarer in Santa Barbara. And when you walk in you'd think you found an equally cool hotel. Not so. While the common areas are very nicely done, the rooms are only about 30% cool - they mostly look like your basic bland corporate box. The very thing I was trying... More

turned off by the congested South Bay traffic? Don't just do day trips on your next visit to the beach, LAX, business function or fun event. Book yourself a room at the Belamar. Wow!

I stayed at this hotel for one night a few weeks ago and I was really impressed by the service and cleanliness of the hotel. I also enjoyed the hot tub and the heated pool. I typically stay in 4.5stars and above hotels and this hotel didn't feel out of place. Highly recommended.

This was my second stay at the Belamar and I was not disappointed. The hotel is in a perfect location, only 1 mile from the beach so you can rent a bike and go biking or head out on the wood chip trail for a nice morning run before heading into the office. This visit I managed to snag a... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Belmar four times over the past 3 years and find the accommodations to be extremely comfortable and hip. The pool and hot tub are a delight and the lobby is mid-century fantastic with yummy flavored water (which changes daily!)

We did a 48 hour stop over in LA. The Belamar is about a 10 minute cab ride from LAX and located on the edge of a residential area and opposite a Mall. A 20 minute walk along a tree lined route takes you into Manhattan Beach. Sunset on the pier is breathtaking. The hotel is excellent! From the moment... More

The reception by the valet is a highlight. very kind and helpful. The services are correct and the room was good. I like small hotels. few people, car parked close. The hotel has a nice pool and jacuzzi, and bikes to ride to the beach (no bikes on the evening). I might stay again.
