Where to Stay in Malibu
While Malibu has quite a number of places to shop and eat, the number of places to stay is really quite limited – the total number is 6 and one of those - Calamigos Ranch & Resort - is not technically in Malibu. So if you are looking for a place to stay in Malibu, particularly in the summertime, you better call ahead and reserve a room. It is universally accepted that the Malibu Beach Inn is by far the best place to stay in Malibu. It sits right on the beach and is centrally located. It has a great restaurant – Carbon Beach Club – on location and the best ocean views. Of course you are going to pay a price for this – over $500 per night. But if you can afford it, it is worth the money. Then you have two really nice and rather unique places to stay – Villa Graziadio located on the Pepperdine Campus and Calamigos Ranch & Resort located 10 minutes outside of town. Next you have the Malibu Country Inn that has a great place to eat also – Kristy’s - attached to it. On the way into Malibu from Santa Monica is the Malibu Motel and the Malibu Native is further up PCH towards Point Dume.
