Hello there. We planed to stay at the Patriots Boutique Motel for 1 night but ended up staying for 2 because we loved San Clemente. This is a great little motel. Our room was very clean, great king size bed, clean white linen, flat TV, fridge, microwave and air conditioner. The hot water was excellent, bathroom very clean with toiletries.... More

This a basic motel very conveniently located within walking distance of great restaurants, shopping, and the pier/beach. The room was very clean, with a surprisingly comfortable bed, nice pillows, and great service. We purchased through Amazon Coupon and received a good bottle of with our check-in, which was a nice touch. If you are comfortable with the basics you will... More

I have a pitbull and they didn't shut the door in my face. Very accommodating, clean, and friendly. Location is perfect. Love the bbq/relaxing area. Very cute place. Will stay there again when I'm in that area again.

I loved it here. The staff are great and obviously know the area, they're nice and laid back. It's a nice location for shops and restaurants. Depending on your idea of a walk, it's a nice walk to the beach. However, back is all uphill, which I personally loved, and it's about 2 miles back and forth. Going to the... More

We were in San Clemente to visit a marine that is stationed at Camp Pendleton. The motel was very conveniently located to the base and lots of shopping and eating opportunities. Loved that we could walk to the gas station and Ralph's. We had room 11 and had plenty of space for the 4 of us in our group. We... More

This property has so much character and is positioned perfectly within the heart of San Clemente, on the beach side of the freeway which divides the town. We walked to the beach each evening to watch the sunset and grab a cocktail on the pier, it was lovely. Also walking distance is the main shopping and restaurant strip called Del... More

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
