Rooms are large, comfortable and very nicely decorated. The food is delicious and the restaurant/lounge on the terrace which offers a great view on the ocean is absolutely amazing.
The staff couldn’t be more friendly.
I can’t wait to go back.

We stayed 2 nights over the weekend & really loved this new fun hotel. The rooms are small but very chic and the greatest part is the rooftop bar/restaurant with the view over the ocean.

There is a fireplace & heaters & wonderful attentive waitstaff making this a very very fun relaxing beautiful place .

We would highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Malibu. Easy access & parking.

My wife and I recently spent a night at the recently renovated Surfrider Inn. What a transformation! We have often visited Malibu over the years and were truly impressed. The new owners have succeeded in capturing the essence of Malibu’s legendary casual chic beach elegance. The use of natural woods, soft color palette in furniture and fabrics are just right. The staff were genuinely welcoming, from Derrick (sp?) to the restaurant staff. We also met Emma, one of the owners, who could not have been nicer. And, of course, as others have mentioned the rooftop restaurant with its magnificent view of the Pacific and the Malibu Pier, is breathtaking - something straight off the big screen. We had a moon-filled dinner that was splendid. We look forward to our next stay. Bravo!

We had the most amazing stay here! After a warm welcome and a room upgrade (what a great surprise on our anniversary) we enjoyed a cocktail on the rooftop terrace with a magnificent view over the beach. The decoration of the entire hotel (rooftop terrace, lobby, rooms) was gorgeous! Our room was so very comfortable, nice beds, great shower and ammenities. In the morning we had a nice breakfast (excellent food) overlooking Malibu beach. We felt at home! Hospitality of Emma and her team was excellent! We only stayed 1 night, but we will absolutely return here in the future. Can't wait! Thank you Emma and team and best regards from the Netherlands!

Room tip: Best view on the top floor! But every room is amazing!

Our entire family stayed at The Surfrider Malibu for our small wedding in the area and we could not have been happier with the service -- from a complimentary bottle of champagne in our room when we arrived, to personalized service every step of the way. The rooms and the view are absolutely gorgeous as well. It was a fabulous experience.
