I stayed here over the New Year celebrations in Malibu. The staff was friendly and very helpful with every need we had. The jacuzzi is top notch and very private.

We like it, we'll be back. It's simple, funny, dark and light. It's historical and in a great location.

My family booked three rooms in this motel sight unseen for a family funeral. Our drive was from Arizona to Malibu after work on a Friday night (arriving very late). Our stay was so unsettling that we got very little sleep. One room had bugs in the shower, dirt on the floor and the bed was like sleeping on boards. The second room had spiders that had to be killed a dead spider carcass on the wall there was a hole in the shower ceiling stuffed with paper and again the bed was like sleeping on boards. The third was the worst of the three rooms. There was trash from the previous tenant sticky stuff on the floor, stopped up bathroom sink, a broken fridge a broken remote for the T.V. and again the bed was like sleeping on boards.

We decided as soon as the sun came up we would check out and leave since the office was closed. The office never opened before we had to leave for the funeral (8:30 a.m.) so we went to the funeral and would check out after. I called the hotel and talked to a gentleman (named Gary) who was very nice, apologized and said it would be no problem to come to the office after the funeral. However, when I went to check out at 12:30 p.m. the young lady in the office asked us to call Tricia (she said Tricia was the owner). After introducing myself on the phone Tricia yelled at me, told me she did not intend to play this game, I could not check out. She assured me she would charge the card I used to hold the room for both nights that we had booked and hung up on me. If you are ever given the opportunity to stay at this motel I would say DON??T

Pros: NONE

Cons: EVERY THING!!!

This motel is "quaint". Don't go here for the rich "Malibu" experience. If you want that, go to the Malibu Beach Inn, (+$400/night). This hotel is right between Paradise Cove and Zuma Beach. If you want to stay in Malibu cheaply, with no frills, this is the place. Refrig. in room and a hot tub that is always available, just bring the bubbly and a nice big fatty.

Cons: noise, lack of ammenities

It's a shame that in such a beautiful location this motel has nothing great write about. The rooms are dark and old with disgusting bathrooms. The shower stall was very small with cracked tiles everywhere. The price of the room was cheap but it's still not worth it.

All the four start ratings in this review are assigned by the managemt of this "motel" - actually visitors should rate the place with minus stars. Stopped and left, it cannot be get any worse, motel in Kurdistan may be better. Smelly, dirty, stinky !

I am not here to bash the motel. It was really bad. It is a real comment, management.
I was there over the weekend last week. I felt sick looking at the room, I had to throw my money and get out.
Have you actually cleaned the room? To me it didn't look like you have . It is way too filthy. It is not about how expensive/cheap to stay. If you run your business, especially hotel business, you should care more about the customer. You said you take pride in your motel. But your rooms are letting you down so badly.
First, let's start by baccuming the carpet. Again, I feel bad that place is called Malibu.

I would have rather spent the night at the Bates Motel!!!! Not only was the bathroom growing fungus, none of the electricity worked, toilets were busted, there was old molded food under the furniture and a foul order all around. You can tell all the doors were bashed in a 100x. And that was in more than 2 of the rooms we kept switching to! The workers are creepy and I feared sleeping there. Stay away from here!!! New Management, Newly Remodeled- yea RIGHT!! This place should be boarded up and condemned!!! Beyond HORRRRRIIIBBLLE!!!! Keep Driving!!

Well its October 2007 and so far six of our rooms have been completed with new 16" X 16" ceramic tile flooring wall to wall. New window treatments are horizontal louvered blinds, provide privacy and an elegant look . Its been said our room could be considered 'hypo allergenic', but I dont know if I would go that far. Just plain 'clean' is more like it. We value our customers opinions of our establishment, and thanks to web sites such as this, something we never had to go by before, let us know how badly some people felt about staying here, and has allowed us to continue to make the changes necessary to become a desirable place to stay. We thank all that have left comments, and hope comments continue to improve. Thank you. Management

I cant believe this place was in malibu! The office smelled like urine. The heater was ran on an ext cord that was melting the carpet and smoking. The doors look like they have been kicked in 15 x's. The sheets look like they are 40years old (esp with the crusty stains and foul odor). Trust me if u go here u will want to bring a lot of beer b/c u will not want to remember it!!! trust me
This is my first time rating a hotel>> This hotel was bad enough to get on here and rate it>> (and i have stayed @ a lot of hotels)
This place should be shut down!!!!

As of October 2006 all the rooms at the Malibu Riviera have been renovated completely. Re-grouted showers, Ceramic Tile Bath Room flooring. Instant hot water at the shower. (Takes about 12 seconds for hot hot water.) Each room has it's own back patio. There is a beautiful 60' waterfall to enjoy. Please come back and try us now. I'm sure you will appreciate the improvements. New Management.

Ever go to TJ for spring break? It's Pappas and Beer (is that even around still? am I dating myself?), te-kill-yah, and fish tacos from a street vendor. The motel you take your chance on? Well, you're a college kid afterall and how much time are you really going to spend in your room? And the few hours you pass out, how much will you really remember? Well, welcome to your overnite experience at the Riviera. You'll wish you were too drunk to care (or remember) that the rooms smell like smoke, the sheets are well, hopefully the bleach has killed everything, and you have 20 minutes to burn before your shower heats up in the morning. I could go on but I'm limited to 150 words. I just couldn't believe this place was in Malibu! Just because the name sounds french...well they hate Americans, don't they?
