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.

... was not too difficult, basically along the canyon so not too hard an elevation. Except for the short wrong turn we took which was basically straight up! Along the way there are a couple of ruins to see. Previous residences wiped out by fires in the canyon, only the foundations at brick walls/fireplaces remain of what were once beautiful home in the canyon. At the end of the hike was a waterfall. Well if McWay ...
... today. We had wonderful views over Central Park, the Hudson River, the Empire State Building and a little view of the Chrysler Building. After taking lots of photos, we went to the gift shop up there and I got a NYC T-shirt and some postcards. When we arrived down, Meg got some breakfast and we went back to the hotel room to pack up and check out. It was a tight squeeze but Olivia's teddy Macy ...
... ending up on top at the end. Blake was going for Golden State but it was good to have the home side win and see the big celebrations after the game. The fans were all very passionate and we even witnessed a bit of a tiff, punches thrown and people kicked out.
It was a fantastic experience, one that we have both wanted to do for a long time and will hopefully get to do again in the future. Highly recommend!

... just like Sydney - and you can have your coffee any way you like, as long as it's the way they make it…which is, of course, perfect.
People on my target list have been wonderfully welcoming and a number of meetings have been set up or "square bracketed". But with the number of names on the List approaching 150 (before any further recommendations ...
Great nights sleep with the sound of the ocean but had to get up in the night to turn off the gas log fire, it was too hot. Woke later than usual 8.30 as the hotel was so quiet, checked the weather online - yesterday it said rain from 10pm but now it says from 2pm! Quick breakfast of cereal & muffin then off, the nice guy at the hotel showed us the way on his map and gave us some more cakes to take as he said there's not much along the way. Nice start from Ventura, ...
