Los Angeles is slowly, but surely, opening up again - outdoor dining and unique events popping up all across the city. The Sea View Inn, Manhattan Beach is in perfect proximity to countless activities that are safe and enjoyable for everyone. First off there is a rooftop film festival setting up shop at the Manhattan Village Mall parking structure, which is the first-ever drive-in independent film festival. Along with this is the various new restaurants and shops opening up in the Mall after massive renovations have taken place for most of 2020. Some of the new restaurants include Handel's Homemade Ice Cream and Silverlake Ramen - both Angelino fan favorites. Finally, an upscale pop-up market with unique vendors is also taking place at the Village Mall on February the 6th, perfect for a casual stroll through some of the most unique and classic LA shopping opportunities. All of these events, and more, are taking place within five minutes of the Inn! You will love the South Bay and all that Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, El Segundo, and Redondo Beach have to offer.
Over the last few months, Manhattan Beach has a seen a number of new restaurants open up and they’re all within walking distance from The Sea View Inn.

When you think of Los Angeles wide open spaces don’t always come to mind. The good news is the South Bay is unique. We’re only a few miles from LA but that distance makes a big difference.
The Sea View Inn is steps from a deep beach next to a gorgeous stretch of the Pacific Ocean. This beach is a perfect place go for a socially distanced walk or run.

Lastly, if you want to really get out on the water and see some sea life consider visiting the Redondo Beach Harbor and renting a Stand-up Paddleboard. These boards provide you with an opportunity to get up close to dolphins, sea lions and seals.

Guest review May 10, 2017
Perhaps the best kept secret in hospitality in the entire LA area. My recent stay at the Sea View Inn was outstanding across the board. The property offers a wide array of different room types, and the hotel is comprised of a handful of different buildings, so definitely take some time to consider what you want from your stay. Many of the rooms offer oceanview balconies, and I would absolutely recommend going with this option; the sunsets are astounding.
The room was recently updated, and featured a great shower. The room was also quiet, and comfortable overall. The cleaning service did a great job each day, as well. The hotel offers free bike rentals, and I believe beach chairs, too. It was quite chilly during my stay so I did not use the pool, but in the past when I've stayed here during the summer it has been more than satisfactory. Pools are rare in this neighborhood of Manhattan Beach; it must be among the only ones in existence.
The hotel is within steps of a handful of great dining options, including Sloopy's, which is my favorite spot to grab breakfast in the area. There's also Moon's Market just across the street, and that offers an array of food and beverage options to keep the room stocked. The room did feature a mini-fridge, which was a very clutch amenity. I also greatly appreciated the fresh ground coffee that was stocked in it, as it was a breeze to prepare a cup on demand with the provided coffee maker. I probably saved myself about $30 worth of Starbucks during my stay on account of this.
I highly recommend this property (and Manhattan Beach in general) to anybody looking for a great, yet unpretentious SoCal beach experience at a very reasonable price. You can't beat Manhattan Beach, and you certainly cannot top this option if you want to stay right in the heart of things and be right at the beach
