This hotel was excellent. We stayed here for 2 nights. The room was amazing. The bed was really comfortable, the room had a fireplace. The balcony was right over the beach so the sea view was spectacular. We slept both nights with tho door open so we could hear the waves. The staff were very friendly. The restaurant was brilliant....

When staying in LA I usually try and get to the ocean – it somehow seems healthier and helps lessen the feeling of being consumed by a sprawling city landscape. So I’ve tried Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach, Marina del Rey and this time, when checking the shock prices for a return stay at Santa Monica’s Shutters on the Beach, felt...

Though relatively small, these well-appointed rooms have balconies with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. This fact alone will make your stay a memorable one. The location is ideal, and easy to access right off the Pacific Coast Highway. We could not hear the highway from within our room. However...We were in a second floor room, and were kept awake...

Love this property situated right on the ocean! Rooms have nice decor and furniture. Gas fireplace and bed facing the ocean are excellent touches. Bed was extremely comfortable. Patio overlooking water was so relaxing. I was there on business and can't wait to go back for a vacation instead.

The property is directly on the beach! When you drive in, it does feel like a roadside motel thought until you actually get on the property. It is called an Inn so that makes sense.

Staying in Malibu

Neighbourhood Profile
Malibu
The Malibu coastline is like a chameleon. In some areas it resembles the French Riviera with its lush, green hillsides descending into crescent-shaped shorelines. In others, it feels 100% Southern Californian with beaches wide and flat as a football field, and often crowded with beach-goers lounging on towels and playing volleyball. Other coastlines still feel secluded, tucked under tall cliffs and dotted with stunning rock formations. In certain areas, where the ocean waves are just right, surfers can be seen bobbing in the water. Up in the mountains to the east hikers take in truly stunning views of the ocean and the sprawling Los Angeles landscape. And along Pacific Coast Highway, restaurants are filled with visitors and locals from all walks of life. Stumble into the right place at the right time, and you’ll likely encounter a celebrity.

Magnificently nestled right on the sands of famed "Billionaire’s Beach," Malibu Beach Inn is a spectacular ocean-front getaway within minutes of LA. Since its inception in 1989, Malibu Beach Inn has become a beloved destination for both leisure and business travelers. After a complete, contemporary multi-million-dollar renovation, Malibu Beach Inn re-opened its doors as the only luxury oceanfront hotel destination between Santa Monica and Santa Barbara, offering guests unsurpassed levels of luxury and service on the sands of exclusive Carbon Beach. The Malibu Beach Inn is approximately 22 miles from Los Angeles International Airport. The hotel embraces the serene beauty of the Malibu coastline through its landscaping, architecture and interior design. It also embodies the spirit of one of Southern California's most exclusive communities through the warm hospitality of its multilingual, European-trained staff, its signature beach club, and a unique collection of artwork by contemporary painter Glenn Ness. The Carbon Beach Club features California coastal cuisine with Pacific Rim accents that is complemented by an outstanding and extensive list of hand-selected small-production wines from California's premier wine regions. The dining room offers both indoor and outdoor dining, both of which boast breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the sound of the tumbling surf below.Guest rooms feature private balconies, minibars, coffeemakers, hairdryers, bathrobes, DVD players, safes, complimentary high-speed Internet access, fireplaces (most rooms), and private hot tubs (some rooms). ... more   less
