We booked a standard room, when we arrived James changed our reservation to a suite and billed us accordingly. When we asked to speak with the owner, he told us he was the owner but later admitted he was not the owner. We were called "liars" and told we shouldn't have stayed at the property. I said we would dispute... More

Well, we just returned from a 16 day Pacific coast highway cruise. We stayed at the Seaview Inn for a few days..Let me tell you that the beds were the most comfortable beds...EVER. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The extras that they offer were in great condition and added to the stay. Very nice neighborhood and safe to... More

Having read many reviews on this accommodation we were beyond disappointed. In terms of location/ proximity to the beach it is great ( warning - it is a steep walk back up the terraces). We had room 202 located on the ground floor across the road from the reception, once a baby cot had been erected in the room you... More

We absolutely love Manhattan beach and I'm so glad we discovered this gem! The rooms are modern and more than big enough. Bathrooms are compact but very clean and modern. There's a great pool and you can borrow beach equipment from the reception. The manager was so lovely, welcoming and helpful. It was a great end to our month of... More

Perfect location to unwind at the end of a long work day. The staff was extremely helpful. My room was very basic with a bed, sitting area and bathroom. But the view from the balcony was unmatched. Close to really good restaurants and the beach. Would definitely recommend to others and will stay there in the future.

I grew up in Manhattan Beach, and on previous trips had rented homes. This time it was a last minute thing, so we tried the Sea View. We showed up three hours before check in on a Sunday, and the staff could not have been better. They got us parked, which is a big deal, and had the room ready... More

Modest and clean, the Seaview Inn matched our needs well. We stayed in one of the larger rooms with an ocean view and a pull-out sofa to accommodate three of us. The staff is exceptional: friendly and attentive. One of our highlights was riding the free beach cruisers along the strand for hours. Parking was also quite convenient. All in... More

Great setup for going to the beach. I was staying for 10 days to see family and had to work as well. In the center of things for getting to the beach, strand and area restaurants. For working, desk and chair pretty small and not designed for any extended use. Very basic room, but very ok with that as I... More

We enjoyed 2 nights in the 1 bedroom "apt" with large deck. It was roomy, clean and quiet. The view was great and everyone - staff through locals - were all friendly and welcoming! Plenty of dining options within walking distance too. We opted to use the kitchen one night for dinner so we could eat on the deck. Definitely... More

Wonderful hotel 7 or 8 minutes walk down to one of the most beautiful Pacific beaches. The 1 bedroom suite with kitchen, was roomy enough, very clean, cheery, and the staff of he hotel were some of the nicest, most customer-oriented people who have run a hotel that I have stayed at. Nothing was too large or too small to... More
