“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 15 March 2012

I had an overnight here on my way from New Zealand to London in March. I am sitting at the airport now about to head to London but had to write this review as the hotel is great.
I had a deluxe blacony and it was great. Had to haul myself out of bed this morning as the bed was too comfortable.The room was quiet and very roomy. All the staff I came in contact with were very friendly and customer focused. A short walk to manhattan mall and a great run to the beach along a trail.
Highly recommend this hotel to stay in

Room Tip: I had a ground floor balcony which was roomy and light

Stayed for a business meeting and had the most fun and AMAZING food at the hotel's restaurant www.secondstoryrestaurant.com. Can not wait to stay again!! Thank you to Jose Marco for a great Bloody Mary on Sunday. And the menu choices were great!

Stayed at this hotel for a get away from the kids night. The atmosphere feels like the 60's. Our room was comfortable although the bathroom was a little bit small. The restaurant makes a great capuccino.

I just wrapped up a 3 night stay at The Belamar. This hotel is fantastic! It is small and welcoming and the staff are equally welcoming and friendly. I could walk in thru the lobby and up to my room on the second floor in less than 20 seconds. My room was spotless and the bathroom in particular was so clean I could have probably eaten off the floor.

The restaurant had delicious food (highly recommend the brussel sprouts app), cold beer, and very friendly wait staff. The breakfast buffet was very impressive, and consisted of both buffet items and items you could custom order through the kitchen such as fresh made omlets and waffles.

Can't wait to come back!

I have the pleasure of staying here for work once or twice a month and my stays are "Always Excellent". The staff go out of their way to accommodate requests and the restaurant and bar are great...and just down the hall if you don't want to leave.

The location could not be better, with LAX and Manhattan Beach about 10 minutes away.

What a delightful hip home away from home! The Belamar Hotel in Manhattan Beach is an excellent stop for road weary travellers. Martini's on Monday are just one way that this boutique hotel makes you feel like you are someplace different. The staff at the Belamar is engaged. . . even to the point of having the room service attendant say that the "tip was included" when he delivered dinner. Have you ever heard that? Belamar is a fun experience that will make you happy!

Needed a getaway close to home for my birthday weekend. Love mid-century modern decor and the boutique hotel environment so I chose the Belamar Hotel. I was not disappointed. I planned a girlfriend's getaway/slumber party last September. My room -no. 225 -aka the Josie Suite was large enough to accommodate 2 roll away beds in addition to the comfortable queen size Murphy bed with plenty of room to spare. Loved the large bathroom with jacuzzi tub and the balcony overlooking the courtyard. The staff and service is amazing! I have stayed at many boutique hotels but found the Belamar to have the best service. Appreciated the complimentary dvd movie selection available at the front desk. I hosted a Sat. night happy-hour birthday party for 12 in the hotel's bar lounge followed by a get together at the hotel's pool and jacuzzi. The atmosphere was terrific and the food, drinks and service provided by the staff of The Second Story restaurant bar was exemplary. Also greatly appreciated the free valet parking for my guests who joined us for dinner. Everyone had a great time. Following the slumber party, the weekend continued with an excellent and affordable $13.00 buffet breakfast at the restaurant. This is the first time I have actually enjoyed a hotel restaurant and found the food not only excellent but well priced! I spent a quiet day enjoying the pool and balcony. I will be returning soon. Please note that for those travelling with pets- this is a pet friendly hotel with the small non-refundable pet deposit being donated to a local rescue group!

Room Tip: For those desiring balconies request a second or third floor courtyard view. Rooms 225 and 325 are...

Dear jmfar9,

I am whistling Happy Birthday with a big smile on my face as I write this because I love your review of the Belamar! Thank you jmfar9 for spending so much time to write about your recent birthday getaway weekend with your girlfriends.

It was a pleasure to read about your stay in room 225, and even more exciting to read how much you enjoyed Second Story restaurant. I agree it's a great spot for a get together and in fact, I'm even coming back for dinner tonight with some of my own friends because I too love it that much!

Second Story truly is a fun place to spend time with your friends offering great food, friendly service and special little surprise bag for your birthday. If your girlfriend didn't receive hers, please let me know and I'll get it right out so you can give it to her.

Please give your girlfriend a big birthday hug from your friends at the Belamar. We hope to see each of you back for your respective birthdays and we'll make sure to have room 225 ready for you when you come!

Have a super weekend jmfar9 and thank you again!
