We stayed here for 3 nights in November 2013 and I realized I never left a review. So sorry, guys! The room we stayed in was recently remodeled, stylish yet minimalistic, very clean. We were on the 2nd floor and had a balcony over the street facing the ocean where we watched the sunset each night. Pool is small but... More

I go to Los Angeles every year and I always stay at the Sea View Inn. It's in a great location, it's clean, and the staff are very friendly. It was renovated a few years back and is nicer than ever. The best thing is that it's so close to the beach, you can walk there. The only drawback is... More

I recently stayed here for a quick overnight girls trip. There was a total of 4 of us. We rented an executive suite so there was plenty of room for us to sleep. We brought our own alcohol and mixers. It was nice because the room had a fridge and utensils to use. It was within walking distance to restaurants... More

I absolutely loved staying here. My girlfriends and I stayed in an executive suite and we loved that we were super close the beach, had access to bikes, pool, and towels, and we mostly loved cooking in the kitchen. I would recommend this place to anyone. The staff was helpful and fun and I can't wait to go back.

Love this quaint little hotel! The location is fantastic, quick walk to the beach & lots of great dining options nearby. (North End, Four Daughters, and Cake Bake are great spots to try.) Downtown Manhattan Beach is an easy walk (~1 mile), or borrow a (free) bike from the hotel! The rooms are clean and fresh, nothing fancy, but definitely... More

My 64 year old mother and I (I'm 34) took a long weekend trip here from Portland, Oregon. It was an inexpensive place to stay, and although it was nothing extravagant it had everything we needed. It was clean, quiet and a wonderful location. The free bikes made it so we did not need to rent a car, but it... More

We're with those who really like the SeaView Inn for a first-time visit to Manhattan Beach. Our room (#108) was small and simple (see photo) but perfect for two of us and had a very nice walk-in shower. But the real plus was the view of the ocean (1 block away) from the small balcony overlooking Highland Ave, a busy... More

We just love the Sea View Inn! We have stayed there many times and it always feels like we have our own place by the beach. We love Manhattan Beach and this gives us access to everything Manhattan Beach has to offer. Close to freeways, airport and tucked away with the most amazing beach access. We love it! The rooms...
