Well, imagination is having the time of it's life. We've come up with every story of who, since when have stayed here, where the hidden video cameras are, and if we should hide out here if-n when we ever commit a heinous crime.
The patio is great (smokers paradise) although we quit! Bring candles it's dark. Don't use bed spreads. We pulled em off and redecorated. We travel alot so it's nice to try and make it homier.
Try to get a room far from the office and street. It adds to the ambience.
this is not a cookie cutter, turn key hotel. If quirky adventure isn't in your repertoire...go to a chain, or fancier place.
It is dark here, tucked away and you can picture hippies in the 70's running around high as a kite with free love in the air. Maybe you'll see it as a figuritive roach motel. Who knows... You will leave with memories.
We like it, we'll be back. It's simple, funny, dark and light. It's historical and in a great location.
The remodel... Well, it's just a clean up. Wish we had a shot at it. Could be quirky and hipster sheek on a dime.
We say, stay here! Thumbs up
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located in the coastal beach town of Malibu, California, Native is a 13-room hotel that’s surrounded by acres of lush greenery and perched on the Pacific Coast Highway. Originally built in 1947 as the famed Malibu Riviera Motel, the classic one-story building on 4.5 acres of land was acquired by SKG Investments and completely overhauled and designed by Los Angeles-based creative agency Folklor, taking on a new, contemporary look while preserving its old paradise charm.
