Jr. Suite was spacious and clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. This room was a handicap room. The shower was huge. My husband I loved our stay. The restaurant was also really yummy. We had the lobster omelet

We stayed at the San Clemente Inn for four nights and have already planned our next visit! Conveniently located, well sized rooms, clean and quiet. The suites have a kitchenette which makes it very convenient for making morning coffee and a quick bite to eat. I've stayed at other San Clemente places and this compares favorably. Ask for a room...

The brochure makes this resort appear to be a first class beach property. It isn't. For me the lack of elevator [lug your bags etc up the stairs], very uncomfortable bed, minimal furnishings from the 80's, and musky, dim appearance made this at best 2-star property. It is extremely dated [1980's] in appearance and seriously uncomfortable furnishings, If I were... More

We stayed here because it was minutes from the beach. On the night we got in, we drove the short drive to the beach but there were railroad tracks right on the sand. There were hardly any cars (didn’t look like it was a busy type of beach) but you still had to pay for parking and you had to... More

The staff at the hotel are warm and welcoming and do their best to make their guests comfortable. Only one problem -- "the board" and "the management" makes a weekend jaunt inconvenient. Policy is can't check in to hotel before 1pm even when hotel not sold out so must come back to front desk at 1pm to verfiy check in.... More

Welcoming place to stay with partial kitchens, lots of dish ware, beach, miniature golf , ping pong, food ball, separate hot tub for children and another for adults. Entertainment and restaurant on site. Take long walks on a pathway to the San Clemente Pier or lounge in open spaces with a fountain, and goegeous views from the second floor. Balconies... More

Stayed in a studio here for three nights in late October; couldn't be happier. Room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, with upscale furnishings and many thoughtful amenities. Studio included queen size bed, small kitchenette with two-burner stove and microwave, full-size refrigerator, dishes, paper towels, coffee maker, ice machine (on site), hair dryer, ironing board, air conditioning unit, and many...

If you are looking for a 4 or 5 star place this is not it. If you are looking for location to the beach, not pricey and lots of amenities you've hit the jackpot!!! Great kitchenette, fully stocked with just about everything you might need. Each room has a balcony which is sweet. Has a great little restaurant for breakfast.... More

We just stayed at the San Clemente Inn last weekend. I cannot say enough about the location, helpfulness and friendliness of the staff and value for the reservation. The rooms were very nice with full-sized refrigerators, microwaves, coffee makers and a 2 burner cook top. We didn't get to use the putt putt golf, shuffle board or pool, but they... More
