Cute, unpretentious spot 10 feet from the sea! Ok, so the lobby looks like it hasn’t been updated since the early 80s, but that is easy to overlook. The staff is friendly, there is free parking included, and it is directly on the beach with a private access to the waves for hotel guests. Several of the rooms have separate seaside decks, with glass half-walls to maintain privacy. Most other rooms have at least an ocean view, and there is a cozy garden and large courtyard patio that provides the same million-dollar views. Co-owner Richard was very helpful, and has many items on hand to loan out – including corkscrew and glasses for that perfect beach picnic. He is also a good resource for restaurant recommendations and info on the area.

This is one of those places I almost don’t want to write about because I want to keep it a secret for myself. It’s also the kind of place where locals have enjoyed “staycations” before the term became trendy, which I think is always the ultimate endorsement. The owners are very hands-on, answering phones and suggesting local restaurants to guests.
The property has been around since 1949, and the current owners have had it for 20 years or so. It has a very laidback vibe, with a shorts-and-T-shirt mentality, and private beach access right in front of the hotel. Included in rates is access to beach towels, chairs and umbrellas. Free overnight parking is available for one car per room. There’s no pool, but the ocean is right there. There’s also no restaurant onsite, but Malibu is full of them. Plan to book three to six months out for summer.

When I want a romantic get-away from Los Angeles, but don't want to drive or fly to make it happen this is my choice. To sleep with the ocean sounds drifting through the room. It's a small hotel so staff is focused on your needs. Very comfy, homey & relaxing. One of the better price deals in Malibu.
