Friendly welcome and whilst plain, clean and comfortable lodgings. As much as possible we like to arrive in a town and park the car at the accommodation and walk from there. The Patriots and it's location is ideal for this purpose

I found myself in San Clemente for work and was fortunate to find the Patriots Motel could accommodate my 2 month stay. I booked the "Suite", next to the office, which has plenty of room, full kitchen, private patio, grill and fire pit. Any items I requested, Kate and her crew were more than happy to supply; iron and board,... More

I applaud the management for going all out to try and take and older roadside motel and trying to convert it to a "boutique" style atmosphere. But, I don't think it is possible with the environment. Good value, clean rooms, dog friendly. It is advertised as a Walk To The Beach location, but in reality, unless you are a conditioned... More

Even though it was close to the Highway and Freeway we didnt hear the noise. Clean and Quite. Small rooms but close to city and Beaches. Free coffee in the morning. walking distance to a bagel and coffee house if you prefer. Ralphs 200 yards.

Just scanning through some of the negative reviews for this motel, I gotta wonder if it's just the luck of the draw of which room you get. My personal experience had been positive. I was here about a month ago, and the room was exactly as pictured. My initial thoughts on the place is that it was probably a so-so... More

The Patriots Boutique Motel is a gem to find at the beach. An ideal location for groceries (as stores are only a walk away), the bagel shack next door is wonderful to grab a bite before heading off to stroll the main street shops, or walk the beach. Having a mini fridge and microwave saves a bunch on the budget... More

Dropping son off at Surf Camp, needed a quick one night. CHEAP! As I grabbed a cold Corona at Tequilas, the waitress told me about Patriots. It was a block down $90ish and 1-2 blocks from main drag. I think it was an old Rancho Motel but it was clean, great bedding, huge bathroom. A "beach motel" for sure, but... More

We stayed here mostly because it is advertised as pet friendly and compared with the other pet friendly hotels in the area, affordable, which is how we discovered this very charming, small hotel. The staff were very helpful and friendly. We called to reserve a room while traveling up the coast in June and were pleasantly surprised when we got... More

My boyfriend and I have very busy work schedules. We frequently take little "staycations" for a day or two when we have the days to do so. Our requirements for a hotel: pet friendly for our dog who always comes with us, functional wifi access so we can binge watch Netflix or HBOGo, a refrigerator to keep or Trader Joe's... More

After walking out of another motel and then find this place it was a god send. I had been travelling with a friend and we wanted 2 rooms that were comfortable and clean. Let me say this place filled the bill. The manageress was very friendly and helpful and even dropped us off at the railway to save us walking.... More
