We stayed in a studio room. For the price it was a little overpriced. The kitchen was nice and everything worked and utensils were there, bathroom big, but they could have made other things a little nicer. The shower splattered all over the floor because there was no tub and just a curtain. The tile looked gross. There is free... More

We traded in to this for a spring vacation. This is a very old motel that has been turned into a time share. It is not a destination resort but a good place to hang your hat a night to sleep. The restaurant is actually pretty good and the pool area nice. They need to convert the barbecues to gas... More

Clean. Nice kitchenette. Clean, large pool. Jacuzzi for adults. Bar. Restaurant. Less than 5 minutes from beach. Beach is quaint. Exercise friendly. Lots of surfing. Perfect for camp Pendleton families...the base is 5 minutes down the street. (10 with traffic) Very nice place. Felt safe. Only negatives: no coat hangars, small hanging closet. There is a busy street in front... More

We get checked in quickly and efficiently. We request an upper level unit and they give us room 360 on the third floor. We’re overlooking the mini-golf, shuffleboard, barbecue and grass area. The swimming pool is off to the west of us and far enough away that we don’t get any of the noise The condo is a one bedroom... More

This place was cute. I like the queen bed and the two Murphy beds. I only had one problem checking in with Groupon. We didn't know we had to redeem it for the office to receive our reservation. That was resolved fairly quickly.

We got a groupon, and when you get a groupon you take a chance. Either the place is desperate to stay in business, or a new owner took over and wants your business. I would not call it a resort, except for the playful amenities, but for anything else it lacked the resort feeling. Though this is supposed to be... More

We are owners at the San Clemente Inn and decided to take advantage of one of their owners specials. The Crest Unit, which is the largest unit ended up costing us $69 a night for 3 nights. We were there in May of last year and I was amazed at all the improvements that had been made. They have a... More

Plenty of on site activities mixed with the beach made for an enjoyable vacation. Room very clean and staff exceptionally accommodating. A definite return for our family. The rooms are affordable. When upgrades are complete a family won't want to pass this up.
