“great value and location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

This is not a fancy place- so if you need room service and amenities- look elsewhere.

BUT- if you want a great location for a great price- this place is perfect. Clean, no hassle, convenient to everything. The front desk was super friendly, the room was spic and span and everything I could have needed was within a 1 block radius.

While only a one night stay this time, my wife and I love this hotel for the convenience to the beach and near by dining options, as well as the exceptional customer service we receive every stay. The rooms are small but offer everything you need for your stay as well as many free extras including, parking, bikes, beach chairs and towels. Many local eateries are just a few blocks from the Sea View Inn and if you have a room with an ocean view, you can really enjoy the beautiful CA coast during your stay in North Manhattan Beach.

Room Tip: Recommend any room with an ocean view.

We had a fabulous stay here for three days. Clean room, amazing location for the beach, restaurants, and shops. They provide beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and super nice beach cruisers. We especially liked the three hour limit on the bike usage so everyone gets a chance to ride them. Thanks for a comfortable, fun stay. We would highly recommend this hotel for a visit to Manhattan Beach. The man at the front desk was outstanding! So friendly, helpful and went out of his way to take care of our needs. THANK YOU!

Room Tip: Next time I would ask for a room with either a deck or patio so we could be outside too.

We would recommend this hotel as it has a great location in Manhattan Beach with restaurants nearby and free parking. We borrowed the freebies and ride the bike path which was beautiful and a great perk for the hotel. We did have issues with our room such as the safe did not work and had no hot water for 2 days (first the front desk blamed us for not doing it properly but quickly discovered that indeed needed fixing). Close to LAX but never could tell. We had hired a car so it made travelling to the sights easy.

I stayed here for two nights, as I wanted to be close to friends who live in Manhattan Beach. It was a terrific option. The people who work here are beyond friendly & helpful. The beach and some great places to eat are just steps away. The rooms are clean and nicely set up. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of May 2014. Check in was quick and easy. Room was nice, modern and clean (more on this later). Booked luxury room with a view and if standing on the balcony - you can see the ocean, but sitting down the view was blocked by the balcony next door.
Walking distance from downtown Manhattan Beach (approx 30 min walk) - but there are several restaurants and pubs around the hotel so you don't need to head downtown. The best part of this hotel is the free bike rental - spent the better part of the day biking down the coast. It was fantastic.
The only issue (other then the limited view), was the fact that we had ants in our room. Not a huge deal, but bothersome nonetheless. Bed was comfy, bedding was good, bathroom was huge and great shower pressure.
Would've given a higher rating if it wasn't for the ants and extremely slow/hard to connect wifi.

Great location, beautiful views of the ocean. Walking distance to pretty much anything you'd need in Manhattan Beach. Smaller rooms, but who needs to stay inside at the place like this. I only stayed for 2 nights but everything was clean and well managed.
