We just returned from Capistrano, our second visit to the Surfside Inn. We totally enjoyed our visit, it's so relaxing, everything you need and then some. I am handicapped (oxygen 24/7) and when we arrived and parked in the garage we discovered the elevator out of service. The staff provided me with a space close to the front door limiting... More

This complex is right across the Coast Highway from the beach. The beach is more for viewing. Not recommended for swimming. There are nicer swimming beaches close by within walking distance. There are fire pits on the beach as well as places to fish. There is a raised platform to cross over the highway. No need to worry about cars.... More

Spent a week at The Surfside inn in Capistrano Beach CA, We had a huge 2 bedroom unit with 2 baths. The unit was nice and had a patio with it's own BBQ. The view was not all that good as it over looked a Mexican Restaurant parking lot. If you leaned out you could see the ocean, Just not... More

Perfect place to relax and enjoy the ocean. Located near shopping, ocean activities, beach, and local sites. The staff are awesome and all of your needs are meet. Double jacuzzi tub makes for a romantic night. Dishes, cooking utensils, dish soap, towels and pool towels are provided. You can purchase food and grill out every night. Perfect vacation.

We did rci timeshare exchange to stay here in February. The manager Amanda was very helpful in facilitating our stay! She arranged for us to upgrade to two bedroom unit when our party expanded from 2 to 6. We were in unit 216 with large covered deck and great view of ocean and beach. Not all units have ocean view...

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! It's our pleasure to accommodate any special requests that we can. Our pool was closed only because it was resurfaced recently (something we have to do every 10 years). Normally it's open year-round. Thanks for the kind words and we hope to see you again in the future! More

We are owners here. It is a timeshare, but they also rent out rooms when they are available. The staff is so nice, especially Augustina. She is so helpful and kind. Definitely worth a stay if they have vacancies .

Capistrano Surfside Inn is a super place just steps to the beach. It is located right under the pedestrian walkway to Capistrano Beach and just minutes to the town of San Juan Capistrano. Our room (on the end) was spacious and comfortable with views of the beach. Even though the train and PCH are right in our front yard, there... More

By the rail road, highway 1, ugly pedestrian overpass for the view. The place is like a retirement housing minus bingo nights. There is a rusty pedestrian overpass that is an eye sore and obscures the beautiful ocean scenery. The whole place smells old and musty.

Guest did not call in advance for a room assignment and the only ocean-view unit left was the handicap unit. She was very upset about having to take the handicap unit. More

We were a little disappointed that the hotel is across a busy highway from the beach but DO NOT let that stop you...there is a nice walking bridge to the beach and amazing views from the rooms! Our room which I expected to be just a basic two bed hotel room was to our delight, two seperate bedrooms, kitchen area... More
