This was our last hotel stay during our 2 month vacation in California. We had stayed at numerous hotels prior to this hotel and this place was by far the absolute worst. And we stayed in the penthouse with ocean view. We paid $350 per night which is just ridiculous. To start, the place is severely outdated. The kitchen amenities... More

Great hotel with pool and easy access to beach if you can trek back up a hill for 3/4 blocks. Free bikes. Towels for beach/pool. Perfect little room in the rear of bldg with private access. Plenty of eateries within walking distance. Quiet location. Highly recommend. Some rooms have decks with ocean view.

We stayed there with two kids and everybody had a wonderful time. The hotel is close to the ocean. There were FREE boards, bikes, sand toys, etc. Nice restaurants around. Spacious room and bathroom. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Loved the ocean view from our room- room was clean and comfortable. I'd give it five stars but needs a little updating and modernization to command a $200 a night price... All in all a good stay- great front desk staff- helpful and we lived the beach chair, bike, and other free beach amenities.. Very steep walk up from the... More

Great hotel room and incredible price for the location. We utilized their free bikes both days that we were there (which saved us even more money). Great restaurants within walking distance. The customer service is truly what set this place apart from the others!! The office staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful! We have stayed a few other places in... More

An excellent value for the price.An unpretentious place that offers fairly spacious room, beautiful bathroom and several services free of charge (beach chairs, bikes,etc.) . It is very clean and very well maintained. The location is excellent, close to the beach.The staff is extremely friendly and accomodating. The only recommendation would be to have a microwave in the room. Thank... More

It depends really on what you like and what your standards are... As a student I would rate the Hotel with 5 Stars as a businessman even lower… The Sea View inn is a nice Hotel and rooms are available for reasonable price... Nothing for honeymoon but perfect to have a great stay in MB

The location and the staff were great. The owner(s) really need to refresh these rooms more frequently, the rooms were very very tired and poorly maintained. Door locks not working or being fixed correctly when reported, even when the door wouldn't shut. This is a great stay if ONLY the location is the key factor here, otherwise stay away from... More

We LOVED staying at the Sea View Inn at the beach in Manhattan Beach. Everything was wonderful. Loved being able to check out beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, volleyball and bikes! Saved us a lot of running around trying to rent these things. There were a lot of nice places to eat with good food... Especially The Local Yolk, Beach... More

I was in Manhattan Beach for an overnight trip and I wanted to be close to the beach and not spend a fortune. The Seaview Inn was perfect! It was just a block or two from the beach. There is a walking path along the beach that takes you to downtown MB, about a mile away. The rooms are clean... More
