I recently stayed here for only one night. The room was decent but I will say that the Hotel is older and needs upgrades. My main issue with the people that work here is the lack of communication or effort where it comes to customer service. The checkout time is 10 am and I accidentally left my cosmetic bag in... More

In theory the San Clemente Inn has a lot going for it. It has a great location; it is only a nine minute walk to the beach. The grounds are well maintained; the staff is friendly. The pool is good sized with shallow and deep ends. The hot tubs are warm tubs though. The is a privately owned restaurant attached... More

Poorly decorated, poor lighting inside and out, noisy, and a hard queen mattress. The murphy beds were more comfortable then the queen in the bedroom, so we slept on those. The staff members were helpful and friendly. Sorry, but is our first and last stay here.

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times now, as it is close to Camp Pendleton, and perfect for when my Marine leaves on deployment. Not a luxurious hotel, but spacious, clean rooms, large balcony, very pleasant, helpful staff, and ideal for families. Nice surroundings, beautiful atmosphere around Christmas time, with decorations, and a feeling of home. I would stay... More

First, the Good... the woman who checked me in was extremely helpful. The Bizarre... the bed was in an alcove with no bedside table, and no reading light above. So after reading yourself to sleep you have to get up and cross the room to turn off the light! Anything that you would normally keep on the table like the... More

Great experience. We had a nice stay at San Clement Inn during 4th July weekend.The staff is friendly and courtesy. Room is clean and really comfortable. The resort is close to downtown but far enough to give us a relaxing time. It has a restaurant in with a very yummy food.

Staff and property upkeep was very hit & miss. The restaurant was a miss. Service and food were both bad. The location is great but there are better places to stay just across the freeway. Living nearby, we often have overflow guests. We will not geta room for them here.

We recently stayed here and had a great experience. The accommodations were clean, spacious and the amenities were good. Plenty to do around the hotel such as the comedy shows, rent movies, or use the rec center. Close to the beach. The pull-out beds from the walls were awesome and comfortable.

The room was too small for four people. The restaurant in the hotel was excellent for breakfast. The free movies great plus. The game room air hockey,pool,fosseball . I just wish the room was bigger. San Clemente is a fun city. I got groupons for local restaurants. The little kitchen was great for snacks and waffles one morning. I brought... More

This is a "condotel" as, at least, some of the units are timeshares. Did not see the larger unit, but ours was 280 square feet. Mini kitchen and a bed... Which was a mediocre mattress on a wooden pedestal. All this for the bargain price of about $125 a night when tax and booking (Hotwire) fees were included. It does... More
