We were staying in Malibu for just one night and were recommended the Malibu Beach Inn. Loved everything about the hotel from the location to the room to the people. had one hiccup regarding reservations for lunch, but the manager, Allessandro, came to the rescue and ironed out any kinks. Great customer service story!

The inn is right on Carbon Beach front. Our room has the great view of the beach and the pier. The dinning room has both indoor or out door dinning. Watching and hearing the waves pounding the beach and watching sand pipers playing the waves are wonderful dinning experience!

Perfect End To A Perfect Vacation

Pros: Clean Room Good sized room Location, Location, Location! Food was great too
Location: Awesome location right on the beach Carbon Beach Pier is nearby, as is Getty Villa (worth an afternoon to see) Did I mention beach/ocean location!!!
Wife and I recently toured Southern California for our Anniversary. The entire trip was wonderful and we stayed at beautiful extravagant hotels the entire time. But the highlight came when spent the last few days of our trip in Malibu. We had planned to only have lunch at this hotel to enjoy the awesome ocean view as seen from internet images. But after seeing the hotel, and the location (right on the beach with all rooms having an ocean view). We changed our plans, cancelled our prior arrangements and spent the final few days of our time in California in paradise. The hotel is literally right on the beach. It has an awesome dinning terrace extending out over the beach practically touching the crashing waves. We slept with the sounds of the ocean waves lulling us to sleep. The room was immaculate with a private balcony, sitting area and fireplace. And that was the smallest sized room they offered! I've never been so relaxed and at peace in my life. The experience was so wonderful we miss Malibu and The Malibu Beach Inn ever day (especially dealing with a wicked start to winter up here in Canada :P). The perfect ending to a perfect vacation. I'd recommend the Malibu Beach Inn to anyone. It's worth every cent!

Everything was perfect. Chocolate strawberries delivered to our room was a nice surprise. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. Great view from our room of the ocean and pier.
