Place was great,the only thing that was upsetting was, I made reservations in Sept of 2015. On paper work it says no need to call, I called in Jan wasn't in system they said no problem, I called on Monday (arrival for Wed) , not in the system. They said the info hadn't been sent to their system. Kinda scary when traveling from another state. Might want to look into that,not sure who's end is at fault.

San Clemente Disappointment

Pros: I liked the view.
Cons: I think the room could have been cleaner.
Location: The Inn is in a good location right off the freeway.
There was a set of dirty towels outside the door that I had to call to have someone pick up. There was also a spot on the carpet that made the carpet appear dirty. The room did not smell fresh.

Everything was just ok

Not much to say except that the hotel was dated. Including the VO5 products. Not sure if the company is still in business. Guess I can't complain, the price was about right for the accomodation. Everything was clean and functional. Definitely a family oriented hotel.

Beachy keen

Pros: Great location, nice and friendly staff.
Cons: The room was a little bit worn though very serviceable.
Location: Near Camp Pendleton and downtown San Clemente and pier. Surfers delight: Trestles and San Onofre nearby and practically on top of Calafia.
I had the one-bed small-size room, which was completely charming and quiet. The kitchenette has a small cooktop and microwave, a spotlessly clean near-full-size refrigerator with a big freezer, and a dishwasher with soap. Inside the cupboards -- oh, my! You get everything you'd need to set up temporary housekeeping during your stay. I stayed only one night, but I noticed many people using the pool and mini-golf, and surfers pulling in for the night (there is room in the small-size unit for a longboard). There's tennis equipment that can be checked out, and the library of free-to-use DVDs is substantial. The restaurant is known for big portions at good prices plus a proprietor who likes saying hi to her customers.

Honeymoon Getaway

My husband and I honeymooned here. The room was clean and well stocked with the necessaties in the kitchen and bathroom. We did not spend a large amount of time in the room as most of it was spent in Hollywood, LA and Beverly Hills. If you want to visit the LA area, you'd be better off staying closer to LA. If you want the option of going to either San Diego or LA then San Clemente was a good place to stay. My mom made the reservations as a wedding gift but made it under my married name, not my maiden name. Since we only got married the day before we got there, obviously my name hadn't been changed on anything yet. They asked me for ID but would not accept my license because the name was different. I tried to explain that I just got married the day before but he didn't want to hear about it. I needed something with my new name on it which of course I didn't have. My husband finally showed his license and they took that because the last names matched. The walls were rather thin so you could hear people talking in other rooms. The room above ours had small children who liked to wake up early and ran around, stamping their feet and screamed and yelled. Fortunately they checked out only a few days after we got there so we didn't have to deal with them the whole week. We didn't eat at the restaurants in the area but there were nice beaches nearby to visit. Overall it was a great trip and so beautiful. The grounds there were well maintained and manicured.

Not a good nights sleep

The 2 bedroom with the murphy beds was hot. The air cannot get to the bedroom with the a/c in the living room behind the bed ! pillow cases left our faces raw and beds were hard. Did not smell nice. and when I told the staff in the a.m all he could say was I am sorry ! I will not stay there again.
