Casa Malibu Inn on the Beach
Travel Blogs from Malibu
Thursday - a 300 mile journey south from Carmel to Malibu. The first 100 miles we drove back down Big Sur again to San Simeon, where Hearst built his 'castle' (he called it a ranch) on a hilltop overlooking a magnificent coastline. The guided tour took nearly two hours, but didn't seem that long - it was much more interesting than I expected. He …
Today we had a lovely restful day by the sea, reading and paddling. I enjoyed this very much - not sure about Andy, though! We had lunch at a seafood shack, and Andy spent the time car-spotting: five Ferraris driving past in convoy at one point. Also a Maserati, Lamborghini and a Bentley convertible. After lunch we walked along the private beach in …
Well we have moved on to Malibu beach wow it is beautiful, but I did mention before that this was just going to be a short journey about 65 miles, well it has taken us about 5 hours, we drive through LA and the highway is mega busy but that is not the problem, we hit the Pacific Coast Highway and drive on through to Santa Monica / Malibu the coast line and beaches are wonderful, we get to about 5 miles of our camp site when we come across a Police cordon, the road is closed due to a ...
As I drove along the 101 Freeway on Friday afternoon I couldn't help a grin and a holler! On came 'Blown Away' by Carrie Underwood right on cue and it dawned on me that I had actually done this crazy thing, driven across a huge land on my own for over 3400 miles, just as I had planned. Many of them had been on The Lincoln Highway, a great route back east, but one that has perhaps succumbed to the ravages of time as ...
... genieten. Gisteren de 16e verjaardag van David gevierd met een ontbijt in Paradise Cove, het enige restaurant aan het strand in heel Malibu en dus altijd afgeladen. We waren er nog niet geweest ( want anders dan amerikanen vinden wij 2 uur in een rij staan om ergens te mogen eten niet normaal), maar om 9 u ochtends konden we ( na reservering) zowaar terecht voor wafels en gebakken eieren. Gisterenavond ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Malibu Inn on the Beach
You Mean You Want to Stay at Our Hotel?
We heard such good things about this hotel, but when we tried to book several rooms for a family reunion in September the front desk seemed shocked they we would want to stay there. They were downright rude, said they wouldn't take reservations in advance, that their prices would be changing soon and that we should call back another time and seemed shocked that we would even ask. Needless to say we will be staying somewhere else. Imagine, trying to book a hotel room in advance in Malibu. The nerve of us.
We have stayed at Casa Malibu a number of times over the years beginning 25 yrs. ago. Hope to get back there soon. It is a quiet, restful place to contemplate whatever you wish and we always enjoyed our own little kitchen unit on the 2nd floor. Didn't have to get dressed to have a snack or a meal. Great place.
Wonderful place to stay
Loved Casa Malibu-great little discovery on the water. Small capacity makes for more relaxation, more peaceful stay. Only complaint would be the parking situation. Otherwise, would recommend to anyone travelling through this delightful coastal community.
Great Mini Getaway
We had a delightful time at Casa Malibu Inn on the Beach. We live at the beach already and know the cost at our own hotels at Pismo Beach.
Casa Malibu Inn was very reasonable and clean. I had read already previous reviews and knew what to expect. Bring a small car for parking and the rooms will be shabby chic. I will add to bring a hairdryer and go to the wonderful resturants in Malibu recommended by the Inn owners.
Thank you TripAdvisor and all those who take the time to do reviews.
The Best of Malibu
This is the best place weve found so far in Malibu. Our room was literally on the water, incuded fireplace and newly renovated bathroom with very high quality fixtures. I can't say anything negative about it, very nice linens, great staff and the ocean fifty feet off the back deck!
Just OK -- A tad let down
We stayed two nights here on our honeymoon travelling down the California Coast. The setting is beautiful, and Malibu seems so peaceful and of a small town that it appears light years away from LA.
Santa Monica and more nightlife are a short 10-15 minute drive away.
Additionally, there are bars and restaurants (really fun sports bar next door) within walking distance and it really is amazing to fall asleep with waves crashing outside your patio. You're porch is literally 20-30 feet from the breakwater.
The hotel did let us down though (a mid-week oceanfront room for $189).
The room was not cleaned but we were allowed to check in, so we left our bags and did some walking. When we checked back into our newly cleaned room, it smelled a little funky. Not sure if it was from the people before us, or just the seaweed or what, but the room reeked. For two days. Nothing a $2 candle from a gas station couldn't cure.
The room has nice high ceilings, was clean, and had a fridge and coffeemaker. The breakfast was a bit of a letdown, just some picked over pastries and coffee.
Don't confuse this with a bed and breakfast. This leans much more toward Motel. Not a disappointment, but a let down. I expected more.
What a getaway
We stay here every opportunity we have to visit Southern California.
You just can't beat the ambiance. It's a throwback to a kinder, gentler time. Well maintained. Nice touchs. Each room has it's own nuances. Ask the owners and each room has a story or it's own claim to fame. Owners act like neighbors instead of landlords. Great kind people. The only reason I didn't give this place an excellent is because it doesn't have some of the amenities modern hotels do. Keys have room numbers on them instead of card key locks, No high speed internet access. If that's what your looking for go elsewhere and leave the rooms to folks who want to relax and enjoy life as it should be.
Relive the early 60's!!
What a joy this place is! The scent of jasmine wafts through the window to the sound of the Pacific surf. Forget the highway behind it, pretend Lana Turner's upstairs and relax in the innocence of our unslick yesteryears, not necessarily how it was, but how we remember. This hotel made our southern California experience live.
We had a great experience at Casa Malibu. It's easy to find on Pacific Coast Highway. The staff are friendly and incredibly helpful. The atmosphere is homey and relaxing. The view is simply stunning. Everyone at Casa Malibu goes out of their way to make sure the customer has a memorable visit. We stayed one night in a beach front room with our sliding glass door open onto our private deck. The roar of the surf and the cool sea air made for very peaceful sleeping conditions. The next night we moved to a "garden view" room on the second floor. We still had a nice view of the beach and heard the crashing waves.The only minor inconvenience was really tight parking. The parking is free and there's enough if everyone pays attention to how they park.
Comfortable, on beach, nice folks
Right on the beach in Malibu and more reasonable than most for that luxury. Stayed in a suite, a real mish-mash of styles, but comfortable and spacious. Everything clean but the drapes, which were bad. Nice peekaboo view, but also street noise. Promising renovations in progress.
