The 47-room Malibu Beach Inn is a modern, elegant escape that delivers a taste of Malibu’s good life. With clean lines and an excellent beachfront location perfect for celebrity spotting, this three-story inn is a SoCal sensation.
Bed & Bath
The rooms, decorated in earthy tones of cream, sand and exotic wenge wood, have a homey sophistication. Wine coolers stocked with bottles of California’s finest, upscale Molton Brown bath products, fireplaces and sliding doors opening to private balconies lend a home-away-from-home vibe. Fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing on the inn’s private beach.
The inn’s public areas are compact and intimate, dotted with artwork by contemporary painter Glenn Ness. Most guests prefer to relax on rattan chairs on the open terrace. On the third floor, Veronica Skin & Body Care Spa has woven seagrass walls and ceilings draped with creamy linen. There’s a full list of treatments using local company Osea’s marine products. Be sure to make reservations for a table on Carbon Beach Club’s terrace well in advance for California coastal cuisine with Malibu Pier views.
In the Area
The mountains that cradle Malibu are full of hiking trails that wind past waterfalls and reveal stunning views of Santa Monica Bay and Catalina Island. Looking to sample some wine? Even beachy Malibu has a burgeoning scene. Visit Cornell Tasting Room or the Rosenthal Estate and sip Rhone-style wines from vineyards clinging to the hillsides behind those insanely expensive houses. Further afield (12 miles), the Santa Monica Pier houses an amusement park featuring a roller coaster and the world’s first solar-powered Ferris wheel. Or take to the water via surf or paddleboard with lessons from Malibu Surf Shack. Many visitors opt to tour the modern Getty Museum near Bel-Air, but in the late oil mogul’s neoclassical Getty Villa in Malibu, you’ll find art and artifacts from ancient Rome, Etruria and Greece.
How to Get There
Opening the curtains, the Pacific Ocean tosses itself on the shore beneath your window. The Malibu Beach Inn has the windswept feel of the ocean -- the restaurant's outdoor tables focus the essence of being on the coast! -- and the streamlined elegance that one would expect from an understated film community.
The beds offer a great night's sleep. The rooms are appointed in an understated fashion, but are perfect to settle into for any number of days. While one never knows who they'll see in the halls, it's the staff who make the hotel such a wonderful place to stay.
Spend an afternoon reading in the restaurant, tuck into the bar for a glass of wine and some conversation or just ask the desk for the best walking trails, they will unobtrusively make the experience just what you're looking for.
Sweet Hotel with no Lobby. Small rooms, with excellent well thought out design to compensate for the small size. Had delicious breakfast while enjoying the views overlooking the coast and Malibu Pier.
This was our first stay at Malibu Beach Inn, we were shocked how every employee we met went over and above to make it a great stay!
We could tell this hotel is serious about customer service and making it a memorable and comfortable experince for all!
Manny the Asst Manager definitely exceeded our expectations.
We will definelty be back.
I stayed at this lovely property for one night and from the moment we pulled up to the moment we left we experienced simply wonderful service. One of my friends was not feeling well when we drove up so we asked if we get her room earlier. They made sure all of our rooms were ready. They offered my friend a soup or a tea or whatever she wanted to feel better. They were so thoughtful and kind. We had drinks and dinner here as well and it was lovely. Great service, great drinks, great food.
The room itself was really nice. I wish we had more time to enjoy it. The bed was super comfortable, lovely shower, nice amenities.
I can imagine that every property has an off day but based on our experience I can't imagine how this hotel could get less than 5 stars.
Found this vibrator in the bed. I thought it was a WiI controller. No more to explanation other than the nasty manager from Düsseldorf, that accused me of it being mine. I have stayed there twice in the last 2 months. Manny is awesome, they need to duplicate him. This place is horrendous. Made me feel like it is my fault they couldn’t police the room before me. The charger was on the bedside table. They can say what they want... this is 100% the truth.
