Stated here for four nights from 28th september, 2016, in a standard room which was pretty compact but perfectly acceptable. Everywhere was spotlessly clean including the pool area. Excellent facilities- beach equipment and towels and bikes- all included in the cost. Very friendly and helpful staff. Ideally situated. Totally relaxing after a hectic touring holiday. Will definitely stay again if...

The Inn is situated in Manhattan beach a few doors from restaurants and shops. Not too busy as you'll find near the pier. Quick walk down a steep hill to the beach. Free boogie boards, chairs, umbrella, and towels for the beach which were handy having flown from MA. Free bikes were available for the bike path. This is not...

Bring your own towel rack...and conditioner for that matter! This hotel is just OK. I had hoped for more considering the mostly great reviews but was extremely underwhelmed. Location, for sure, cannot be beat. It's a pleasant walk down to the walking and bike paths, and the beach. We stayed in a luxury partial ocean view room. I took the...

This hotel had to have been one of the best places i have stayed on a beach. It is just steps down from the beautiful and quiet Manhattan beach. The hotel is located on the popular Highland Avenue in Manhattan beach around amazing restaurants, and coffee shops. Not far of a walk from Hermosa beach and all of the shopping...

Super SoCal. This is a good value in a great location. Rooms with a view - lots of California sun and ocean breezes. I had a standard room - great shower, excellent balcony with ocean view and good layout. You'll be outside enjoying the beach most of the time - El Porto is a wonderful place to get your Golden...

My family all stayed at The Sea View Inn for a week in July 2016. Staff was great and the complimentary bikes, towels, boogie boards etc. were a true gift.

My family stayed here 4 nights in August. The first 3 nights we were in the 2-bedroom apartment with view, great view, beds fairly comfortable, clean, one of the bathrooms had been remodeled, the kitchen was very dated (we did not do any cooking) but overall really liked the room. The room was not available the last night so we...
