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The room did not look like the picture, it was outdated and it looked like it had not been upgraded since I was there in 1979.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

This place was perfect for a busy holiday weekend. Depending on your room choice, it property is ideal for a family or a romantic break away... Speaking of breakers, we chose a junior suite -- which featured a the large deck, overlooking parklike wooded grounds, and partial view of the Pacific breaking rocks. As for the suite -- spacious is... More

We traded our timeshare in Sedona to go here as a third week of beach vacation. After reading some of the reviews, I was concerned that the property would be dumpy but was pleasantly surprised. The grounds are well kept and the rooms were furnished fine. We stayed in a unit that sleeps six with 1.5 baths and kitchenette. With... More

I had come to this hotel twice. I'm pretty satisfied with their service and cleanness. They location is close to beach, 10 minutes walk, and close to freeway. Very nice and quiet environment. They have a lot of facilities, like free DVD, free tennis court. Thank you for the service.

The San Clemente Inn is, for lack of a nicer word, disgusting. I could not stay there. I traveled from San Diego for a long-needed away-from-home but close enough to drive vacation. The rooms smell, the furniture is so uninviting I was afraid to sit on the couch, it did not seem safe. It was not near anything (but the... More
