Beach Hotels from Glendale

Visiting family last week in August in Glendale. Husband and I will have a couple of nights on our own and looking for beach hotels with a nice pool without driving a long distance. Any suggestions for hotels that aren't real expensive.

Alas, you are in the inland area, so you will have a drive either way, west towards Santa Monica/Manhattan Beach/Renando Beach or South to Long Beach/Huntignton Beach/Newport Beach.

How much do you want to spend a night?

"Without driving a long distance" and "...aren't really expensive" are really vague. Please tell us how much you're prepared to spend per night and how far you're willing to drive (in minutes) from Glendale to your 'beach hotel'. For your reference, the closest beach area to Glendale is Santa Monica which is a 40 minute drive WITHOUT TRAFFIC from Glendale.

Also, please provide your exact dates for your hotel 'at the beach' (since rates vary between weekdays and weekends). Also, please tell us whether you're willing to be 'a little bit away from the beach' as hotels that are ON the beach are the most expensive.

Not knowing your budget, but a popular, casual hotel a block up from the beach is the Sea View Inn, in Manhattan Beach, a 38 minute drive from center Glendale.

http://mapq.st/TGLKrP

The hotel is a grouping of 5 buildings, from motel rooms to small apartments, with balconies and views of the ocean and beautiful sunsets. They lend bikes for the 22 mile bike path, boogie boards and towels and beach chairs. They are across from a neighborhood market, and among shops and restaurants.

I would recommend heading west to Oxnard area. The Embassy Suites is nicely situated on the beach. Plus you are close to Ojai, Ventura, etc.
