What a great staff and location! We were visiting my daughter who lived in LA. She came to visit us at the beach and we all were able to get chairs, towels, and bikes! She was allowed to park in the hotel lot which was great since you have to pay to park on the street or in a lot!... More

Manhattan beach is my favorite little beach town in L.A. (much less touristy and pricey than Santa Monica and Venice) and the Sea View is my favorite place to stay. There are many different types of rooms distributed over 3 or 4 separate buildings only 2 blocks from the beach. We stayed in a 2 bedroom, 1 bath 'Penthouse suite"... More

Very close to everything fun in Manhattan Beach. Bicycles, boogie boards, and beach towels available to borrow for the day. The hotel staff is beyond friendly. For the money the best deal in town. Was a little bit strange that they still used keys instead of key cards however I felt very safe. This hotel felt like a little community... More

Short walk to beach (2 blocks). Clean and spacious room. Fridge and microwave in room. Free bikes, beach towels, and boogie boards. Free parking. Friendly front desk staff. Restaurants, a coffee shop, and a convenience store all within 1-2 blocks. A 20min walk to pier. Great location and value. Already booked to return in 2017!

We loved our time at The Sea View Inn at the Beach as it was close to LAX and a very beautiful area - great shops and restaurants and riding bikes along the foreshore was fantastic. I would recommend this as a stop over on your way elsewhere in America and also to stay for a week or so.

Our family stayed here a week with 3 teenage boys. The location was great. Being close to the beach was so convenient. We definitely got our workout walking up the hill.

The Sea View Inn was the perfect place for a girls' weekend. My sisters, mom and myself enjoyed a nice weekend escape to California and chose The Sea View Inn as our hotel.
