The Sea View Inn at the Beach
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Manhattan Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 March 2014

I travel to the Manhattan Beach area several times a year, and always stay at Sea View, usually in their little one bedroom apartment. Have also stayed in the two bedroom apartments. You can definitely find fancier accommodations, but there is something about this place. It's "beachy," it's clean, the folks in the office are precious, it's within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, shopping, Starbucks, etc. I thoroughly enjoy every single visit I have at the Sea View. I used to live in the area, so Sea View is like coming home. I can't recommend it enough. Enjoy!

Perfect place to spend a few days in Manhattan Beach! I had stayed here years ago when the place was under different management and was pleasantly surprised with substantial improvements that have been made to the property - rooms have had major renovations, and while small, are clean, quiet, and well appointed. Hotel (spread across several buildings) is only blocks from the Strand (though it's a steep walk back!) - be sure to take advantage of free boogie boards and cruiser bikes available to guests!

We stayed at the Sea View Inn last week. Our accommodations were large, well furnished and made for a pleasant stay. The office staff were friendly and helpful. Next door is a good breakfast place, The Local Yolk. Large breakfast and reasonable.

Room Tip: Some of the units offer separate bedrooms.

Please send this on to Hal:

I grew up in Manhattan Beach, but now live out of state. My husband and I had a wonderful time at our stay at The Sea View. The Manager , Housekeeping was very helpful to us. The room was excellent. Having a refrigerator was very helpful.

Thank you again!

Our19 year old daughter booked a room in bad part of town. We discovered this after she was on her flight to LA and we needed to find her a better place to stay, but knew nothing of the area. Sea View was recommended by a family member and local. I called Sea View and reached Brendan, who helped us secure a safe place for our daughter to stay at Sea View. Brendan advised the best way for our daughter to get to Sea View and helped with booking; I was calling from Michigan. Above and beyond that, Brendan heard the concern in my wife's voice and assured us that he would watch out for her arrival, have her call home and take good care of her. He did all of these. Our daughter called that night and we were able to sleep well knowing she was safe. The next day she told us that Brendan was great, made she and her friend feel like family. I can not say enough about this--as a parent knowing that there are good people out there who care and go above and beyond what their job might require is outstanding humanity and customer service. These are the qualities that set businesses apart. Our daughter reported that the view was incredible, amenities were perfect, super area to walk around town and they didn't want to leave. I absolutely recommend Sea View and plan to visit myself!!

As the others say, the view, balcony, and convenience are a plus, as are the availability of bikes, the beach amenities, and the pool. We have stayed here before because our daughter lives nearby, but I don't think we'll return. Although it seemed clean, our room had a faint whiff of urine, the pillows had the shape and density of old foam slabs, and we both came home with bumps on our heads from the awkward placement of the bathroom shelf very close to the tiny sink. I asked, and wrote a note requesting drinking cups, but the cleaning staff just kept leaving piles of their standard issue toiletries. We realize this hotel is budget-priced, but the oversights do add up over the course of a few days. We'll try airbandb next and hope for a more comfortable stay.

Room Tip: Pay for an upgraded room.

Sea View Inn is most certainly a hidden gem! The ocean view room was perfect. Wonderful value. Yes, you're a few streets up from the beach/ The Strand but it really wasnt an issue. Great shops and dining nearby. Our favorite part was using the complimentary beach cruisers. We will definitely be back.
