“LOVED the Sea View Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

I just spent 11 days at the Sea View Inn, 8 days with my family and 3 days on a girls' trip. Everything was perfect! We had a 2 bedroom 2 bath unit with an amazing view. We loved the convenience of the complimentary towels, chairs, bikes, and boogie boards. The beach is beautiful, and not crowded. Lots of restaurants in walking distance, and shopping is a short walk/bike ride away. James and the office staff were very accommodating, as were Nedi and the cleaning crew. We stayed at the Sea View last year also, and are already booked for 2015! I highly recommend the Sea View Inn for a fabulous beach vacation!

We booked the last room at the last minute for a quick, beach getaway. Our room was small but very clean. Our tv didn't work, but no matter because when you're a block from the beach who needs TV???
The WiFi was slow and parking is definitely a challenge, especially if you're driving a Tacoma to transport your bikes. We managed in their tight parking lot.
The staff is friendly and food and shops are close by. I recommend bringing your own bike for easy transport through Manhatten Beach.

Room Tip: Room 203 is very small so I recommend a larger one if you are not traveling solo!

I was thrilled to have found a last minute room with bikes. My request, sent after midnight on a Monday, was answered first thing on Tuesday morning.
I enjoyed being able to borrow bikes day and night. The room, although somewhat reasonable, was not perfectly clean and lacked windows. The one window looked at a fence located less than three feet away. It was the entrance to my room and rather unsightly.
Luckily, the room was used
merely for sleeping and I appreciated the access to a bicycle. The price seemed excessive but I was happy to have found something so last minute.

Above all, James and his team went over and above to assist us (a young family travelling around the world) in making our stay with them a memorable one. We were treated so well and I have nothing but praise for the way in which the apartment was presented and the way the management team treat their guests - we sincerely appreciated the kindness shown to us!

We were only on a 2 day stopover from the UK to NZ, but everything that could be done to make our stay a pleasant one, was done.

The beach is beautiful and the weather was amazing for us. Being able to run for miles along the beach whilst taking in stunning views, humming birds and beautiful gardens was something I really enjoyed. We also highly recommend the nearby café: 'local Yolk' awesome breakfasts and great for kids!

We wholeheartedly recommend the Sea View Inn at the Beach

Room Tip: We stayed in a 'boutique' style 2-bedroom apartment above the Cake Shop - it was excellent...

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.
