While on a trip to Southern California, we were unexpectedly seeking accommodations in San Clemente. Our stay at San Clemente Inn, was warm, welcoming and extended due to a wonderful lady at the front desk making us feel at home. The facility is excellent for the family (mini golf, shuffle board, pools, spas, lounge, movies for children, pool tables..... should... More

The Inn is a bit dated as other reviews have mentioned but the staff is friendly and will accommodate you as best as they can. Lots of basic activities for the kids at the resort to keep them occupied if you wish to stay there vs traveling the area. We spent most of our time visiting the coastal area and... More

This hotel was so-so as far as location- it was semi-close to the beach, which is quite the hike or $15 for a day parking access near it. We felt like while the pool and fun family amenities were nice the hotel is dated and the finishes are tired. Nothing is really close so we had to drive everywhere. Staff... More

My first time in San Clemente, nice location, nice town. Check in is slow but organized well, room is decent sized 1 bedroom with kitchenette beach is 10 min hike down hill park at the inn, it's free and available the beach lot is bust and you gotta pay. Free wifi is slow, I'm updating this on cell service.

Nice location, wonderful kids area, close to beach. 60 miles from San Diego. Rooms are outdated but clean. Nice staff. There is a restaurant on grounds. Food is good, only open for breakfast and lunch except for Fri and Sat

San Clemente is a great little spot to base yourself if visiting Legoland. A town with character and a great beach. Shame then that this place is an over-priced "resort." It has a bunch of things to keep kids happy - pool, mini-golf etc. But it is seriously dated and tired. The decor in the room is dreadful and worn.... More

This place is really nice. Plenty of activities for the family, such as miniature golf, shuffle board, badminton, basketball, tennis, ping pong, billiards, air hockey, and bingo. There is an exercise room, some of the equipment is old, but it all still works fine, the treadmill looked pretty new. You can rent movies from the front desk, all are included... More

If you are traveling with family and kids, this is your place. It is a bit warned down, but has all the fun-summer Californian entertaiment you need: pools, mini golf, games, hiking-bike trails, and more. Our suite was huge for the 2 of us: private room, 2 bathrooms, living room, kitchenette, dinning area and a nice balcony with a view.... More

The suite was beautiful & very comfortable. The view from our balcony was beautiful. You could hear the waves. Great location. Not far from the beach & restaurants. We had such a great time. Will definitely come back!

The room did not look like the picture, it was outdated and it looked like it had not been upgraded since I was there in 1979. The room was not inviting or romantic. I know the maids cleaned it, but it still felt dirty. It smelled like someone poured a gallon of Clorox in there. The bedding was old and... More
