If you're looking for a Malibu hotel, you may be surprised to find that the local accommodations are mostly small yet swank beach motels along Pacific Coast Highway.
Some have been renovated into upscale boutique properties. Others retain that roadside surfer motel feel. It's kind of nice that each is unique, and not part of the larger chains you see everywhere.
Explore the hotels below to find one that suits your taste.
