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.

The rooms are above the parking area so they are somewhat remored from street noise. The rooms include a "sitting area" and a sleeping area in addition to the vanity area. There is plenty of natural light and ventillation from the windows at both ends of the rooms (courtyard on one side and either street or alley on other). The... More

I've stayed at the San Clemente Inn a few times and my stay has always been more than pleasant. The rooms are clean, the staff is extremely friendly and will go out of their way to make you happy. The golf course is a wonderful addition to the property as my friends kids couldn't get enough of it. The food... More

I just stayed at the San Clemente Inn for a second time. We went last spring break and had such a great time that we decided to go back this year. The staff was just as friendly as I remembered and always provided the best recommendations for dinner and things to do. We booked the smaller one bedroom suite, which... More

We booked a few days here through Groupon. While this is definitely an older hotel undergoing renovations, our unit was clean and spacious. The room overlooked the mini golf course and shuffleboard area. The queen size bed was not the most comfortable bed I ever slept in, but it was fine for the few nights were were there. Murphy beds...

Older property. While listing states that it was "Recently Renovated," property is tired and stills needs updating. Staff seem overworked and undertrained. Not a very happy team. Desk clerk directed us to the next town (Dana Point) for restaurants even though San Clemente has a wide variety of good and creative eateries. Hotel caters to surfers, one nighters and large...

It's walking distance, downhill on Califia Street, to a nice sandy beach where there is also a great Burger place. Or take the walking trail along the railroad tracks to the pier. Btw, Do not eat at Adele's. Bloody Mary was nothing but ice cubes and spray of v-8 juice. For breakfast, the food was possible heated in a microwave... More

This is not an impressive or exceptional resort. It's dated and feels dated. But the units are clean and the staff is pleasant and helpful. It feels like this property was built in the early 60's. The decor and floor plans are not that impressive but they work if you are not fussy about those things. They have a pool,... More
