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

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
