Cycling down the west coast we found the need for a lot of motels/hotels. This one was dead last where cleanliness and cost were concerned.
When checking in we found the check-in chick and her boyfriend making out like there would be no tomorrow. Upon entering the motel room we found the slate floors very dirty, (no carpet), and the well worn, thin pillows smelled like those you'd find at a homeless shelter. On the floor in front of the toilet we found drops, many, of pee... the floors were not cleaned.
The following moring, when we checked out, I complained about what we had found and was told the bill would be adjusted... it never was. They had our money... and that's all they cared about.
All around the room was dirty... never again.

Room Tip: There are plenty of options in Malibu... any one of them surely would have been a better choice.

I didnt have the most luxurious room, and I dont think there was an air-conditioner in the room either, but it was very nice temp when I was down there and didnt use the room for anything except showering and sleeping. So for the price it was perfect for me.

Room Tip: If your on the second floor you would probably have a decent view. Bottom floor you couldnt see anything.

My husband and I stayed at the Malibu Motel during our California honeymoon. After driving in from San Francisco, we were very tired and found the Motel easily. After a quick check-in with the very polite hostess, we were so glad to see a very clean room, large spotless restroom, and our super comfortable king size bed. We were also excited to see that we were in very short walking distance (we’re New Yorkers and hate driving) to get a pizza for dinner, and some beer at the well maintained liquor store – which we quietly enjoyed on our private patio deck, while overlooking the illuminating pool. Lovely. The bed was super comfy and we had a great night’s sleep.
In the morning walked over to that same plaza grabbed some breakfast, walked up the path just behind the Motel – and enjoyed an ocean view meal. The person at the front desk was very helpful in providing us with a very handy map, answered all our beach questions and gave us a lot of helpful tips. We jumped in the car in minutes we were at Zuma beach. After doing a lot of online research, The Malibu Motel is by far the most affordable accommodations in the area. Yes, it lacks the additional amenities you might find at a large upscale hotel – so if that’s what you are looking for, then stay at an upscale hotel. If you are looking for spacious, clean, comfortable, affordable and convenient place to stay in Malibu then book now! We’ve just booked our second trip there.
