The Sea View Inn at the Beach
Ranked #2 of 9 Hotels in Manhattan Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 20, 2013

The sea view inn was an incredible surprise, this stay was a last minute decision the night before flying out from L.A.X We were welcomed at reception by the most friendly staff I have ever encountered at any hotel.
The staff went to every length to make us comfortable, this included allowing us to check out at midnight the following night so we did not have to wait at the airport, This was at no charge and even offered us fresh towels and a clean room!!
The rooms are enormous and spotless, filled with natural light,very quiet and ocean views at a great price. manhattan beach is such a great safe community and the sea view inn is in the heart of all the great cafes and restaurants.The hotel also offers free bikes and the access to the beach is extremely easy. I cannot speak highly enough about this hotel and will most certainly be back.
We would like to thank the sea view inn so much for looking after us and wish you all the best.

Room Tip: At the back of the property which is higher on the hill gives better views.

Wife and I stayed for the last night of our trip from Australia. Great spot really close to the beaches and was a great base for exploring the beach/Culver area.

Some good spots to eat within walking distance and even more within a short drive.

We only had one night in town and didn't opt for an ocean view room but were just as happy with the room we got as we spent our time exploring the view in person as it's so close by and easy to get to. Seems like great value prices all round, but especially the rate we got.

The staff couldn't be more accommodating and were very helpful with local recommendations and all. Friendly smiles and great hospitality.

Top it off with parking and WiFi and we're very glad to finish our US experience here. Highly recommended

My wife and I had the good fortune to live in the Sand Section of Manhattan Beach for 5 years in the mid-90's. We have returned annually and generally stay in the better rooms West of Highland for a week at a time. The place has the feel of living in the neighborhood, with great access to the beach, the bike trails, walk streets and great north end restaurants. The staff is very accommodating and rate is an excellent value. Stay and enjoy!

Room Tip: We like the luxury rooms west of Highland, upper floor.

Sea View in is the place we stay when visiting family in Manhattan Beach. The Inn is comfortable, clean and affordable for the area. The bikes, boogie boards and beach chairs are a bonus. The close proximity to the beach, restaurants, and airport are key! The staff is friendly and accommodating. We love the Bakeshop across the street.

Revisiting Manhattan Beach, having lived there before; this was the closest thing to actually being back home. The Inn is spread out over several blocks, all just a 3 minute walk up from the strand & the incredible beach.
Service was excellent & they were ready to help in a moments notice; offering beach chairs, bikes, & towels. The rooms are modern & clean; offering a very comfortable bed; TV & wireless internet worked very well; great shower (no bath in our room).
This is my favorite part of Manhattan Beach; it's a little quieter with a great community feel, and also offers some of the best restaurants. A few to try are North End Cafe, Manhattan Beach Pizza & Pisces Sushi.

Strongly recommend Sea View Inn. The location is ideal for walking in town, going to the pier, or out for dinner. Park the car and go by foot.
Also, if you wish to drive to other beach towns you are centrally located.
A great value.
