I just have to say that not only is this place fantastic and PET FRIENDLY, the staff was simply phenomenal. I think i missed the mention of there only being valet parking which i did not mind at all. The entire hotel stall was incredibly friendly and welcoming. Smiles and greetings from morning to night. The rooms are very very... More

I only stayed for one night but was pleasantly surprised with The Belamar Hotel. Great location close to neighborhood walking and other amenities. Room was neat and clean. Staff was efficient and courteous. The onsite restaurant was really great as well as the service.

We stayed at the Belamar for eight nights in mid-April as part of a JetBlue vacation package, and we had a great stay. From the moment we checked in to when we picked up our car at the valet on our way back to LAX, the service was fantastic. Anytime we needed anything, the housekeeping and front desk staff were...

The Belamar Hotel was the perfect hotel for our family's overnight stay in Manhattan Beach. The staff was friendly, professional and accommodating to our needs and questions. We especially enjoyed the bark lined trail that leads to the beach. It is very, very close to the hotel and provides a nice walk or exercise run for the hotel's guests. All... More

Since the restaurant, which is what I am reviewing is on the second floor, it is not right out there. I can imagine if you want to have a business lunch come here. There are only a few vegetarian options, but those they do have are excellent. Great portion size, you wont be hungry. And attentive staff.

I suspect at one point this was a nondescript motor lodge of some type. The exterior is still such. But the interior redesign is wonderful. Very hip, modern, and clean. Not near beach, but walkable to commercial stores and restaurants. The valet guys were speedy and hardworking. Front desk staff was friendly and unpretentious. We were very pleased with our... More

We used this hotel for a LAX layover. Not close to the airport, but it was worth the cab ride to get there. The hotel underwent a major renovation in 2008 and it has held up very well. The aesthetic is mid century modern and is reminiscent of some of the hotels I have seen in Palm Springs. Rooms are... More
