This is the second time we have stayed here. This time we stayed 8 nights. Manhattan beach is a delightful beach location and the Sea View Inn is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are spacious, clean and very well equipped. The staff very helpful and friendly. The only slightly negative comment is the wifi needs upgrading as we...

The staff was wonderful. They gave us a second parking pass for our daughter after determining that some guests did not have cars. The location is convenient to the beach, several nice restaurants and shopping and to LA if desired.

The customer service was terrible. The staff was so obnoxious and unhelpful that we will never return to this hotel. If you decide to stay here, realize that any problems with your rooms will be rudely ignored by staff. We love the beach, and have visited Manhattan Beach regularly for 20 years. This hotel has a great location near the...

Sea View has a pleasant atmosphere. Although an older hotel, room were clean and neat. Sofa bed could use a new mattress, was lumpy and sunk in the middle. Not too happy about that. Walking distance to the beach yes, but steep incline, returning back to hotel, so you better be physically fit. Other words are stay was nice, staff...

The Seaview Inn purchased an additional building above a bakeshop.We rented a 2 bed 1 bath there for a week in August.The furniture and furnishings were generally ratty. The flies were abundant.We would have tolerated all that in a beachy Inn but the over powering smell of gas emitting for the 100 year old oven was just a scary safety...

The hotel staff did a great job accommodating when my flight in got messed up. They were also really friendly and helpful. The penthouse is fantastic- very much updated and modern, even though I know the building is older. Pretty view on the large deck, very spacious suite. My only complaint was it was hard to control the temp in...

Wonderful service from Tony! Made us feel welcome in every way! Due to troubles with our car, we arrived after check in time. Tony waited for us, unloaded our bags from the tow truck and offered to go to the auto repair place on our behalf. The free bikes, beach chairs and umbrella saved our day in the sun at...

We've been coming here once or twice a year for the past 8+ years. This affordable hotel is very close to the beach, a walkable distance from downtown MB, and has plenty of free parking. You can borrow bikes (the Strand!), sand toys, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrella from the hotel. There are a variety of rooms to choose...

We always read reviews when looking for a hotel, and were very happy with The Sea View Inn, which met all our expectations! Our family wanted a relaxing week vacation and Manhattan Beach was the perfect destination. The view from the Sea View toward the Ocean was fantastic and it was a short walk to the beach. Our family loved...

I choosed this hotel out of all reviews of it and I wasn't disappointed. The location was perfect, just two blocks down to the beach. I had a room with a sea-wiew and sat at the balcony to watch the sun go down. It was very near the Airport if you drive along the beach. Unfortunately I stayed only one...
