Malibu beachfront inn with outdoor pool, restaurant
Off the Pacific Coast Highway in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area, this casual, Cape Cod-style hotel is a 6-minute walk from Zuma Beach and 3.2 miles from the trails of Escondido Canyon Park.
The unassuming rooms offer minifridges and coffeemakers, as well as flat-screen TVs and free WiFi. Most have private patios. A pair of suites add fireplaces and whirlpool tubs, and 1 has ocean views.
There’s a relaxed restaurant with a rooftop bar and patio seating, as well as an outdoor heated pool and free parking.
