The Sea View Inn at the Beach
Ranked #1 of 9 Hotels in Manhattan Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Friendly,accommodating staff. We stayed in one of the standard rooms with a limited view of the ocean one night, and a larger room with a better view for two nights. Both rooms were clean and comfortable. It is very close to the beach and many restaurants. LAX is about 15 minutes away. I just made reservations for my second stay. Free parking!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. Some of the rooms don't have an ocean view.

Had another stay. Great value room. $20 taxi from lax. Use of bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas a hit for a lay over day. Such a Cali cool location so close to the airport.

Staff always understanding of layover too.

This was our first stay at the Seaview Inn and we will be back. Our apartment was very clean and we so appreciated the provided parking space. However, we wished we had two night stands and lamps to be able to read by, instead of just one. James and the other gentlemen were always very nice and quick to get us beach towels, umbrellas and bicycles. It's a great location where we walked and biked along the beaches for miles and enjoyed the great restaurants within a block. We loved our time there!

First of all - THANK YOU for not only offering on-site parking two blocks up from the sand but for it being FREE - at no cost. The three gentlemen who worked the front desk were all friendly, new us by name and always smiling. We were offered beach cruisers and rode them every day to local restaurants, the beach and as far away as Venice beach (I wimped out and took Uber back).

The swimming pool is very private, clean and warm. If traveling as a couple - ask for the room right above the pool with the deck just overlooking. Towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, bike locks, the list is long of what they have to offer.

The Executive Housekeeper was up and walking property early each morning and was the first smile and hello I received. Our room was fully stocked with kitchen supplies, extra bedding, and plenty of towels. I am very particular on clean rooms and beds...this property met the test.

We had to check out because it was sold out at the end of our 6 day stay but returned the next week for 4 more days.

LOVE THIS PLACE & THE PEOPLE!

Book early - they do fill up - don't forget to eat at Sloopy's for breakfast too :)

Room Tip: All rooms great - East side of Highland are higher up for better views (ask for top floor) but West...

This was our fifth stay at the Seaview Inn in north Manhattan Beach. James is the best. Really took care if us from new strand cruisers to umbrellas and beach chairs. Several good restaurants in the neighborhood.

We were late in trying to get in, seemed full but the Mgr(?), found a way for us to have one room for two nights, with the promise of trying to secure a room for the third night. Success!
The first room, was clean and comfortable, although the bath was tiny, with a sink that was about 12x14in, and no counter. That meant that we had to put our toiletries out on the bed while we showered. Not a big deal, but would have been nice to have at least a shelf. Also, no coffee in the room, (normally a deal breaker for us), but there was a delightlful diner next door, so a simple trip there to get our morning coffee.
The other room was a studio, a few buck more but well worth it!

Overall a friendly helpful place which offers a great value.

Our family stayed at the Sea View Inn twice in the past nine months. In both instances we were in town for family events taking place in/close to Manhattan Beach. If you want to be in/around Manhattan Beach, the location is great. Not only are there bars, restaurants, exercise studios, a small market and other stores immediately adjacent to the hotel, it's a few (admittedly steep) blocks from the really nice Manhattan Beach beach (and the bike/walk/skate paths). The staff is very friendly - especially as they help guests take advantage of the toys (beach bikes, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels) they make available for free! Parking is free (although the spaces are narrow). Lastly, although the rooms are nothing fancy, the suite we stayed in during both visits is clean, spacious and really more of an apartment than a hotel suite. It has a full kitchen, a dining room table and nook and a living room with a pullout couch (in addition to the bedrooms/baths). If that describes the sort of accommodation you're looking for, don't hesitate to make a reservation. If we're back in the area again, I'm sure we'll stay at the Sea View!
