Great spot if you are on a surf trip. It is very close to some of California's great surf spots. Rooms were outdated and you are able to hear the neighbors through the walls. It definitely felt more like a motel experience. The hotel or 'motel' does have rooms with pull out bed options and full kitchens. After traveling for... More

We arrived early and were able to check in. We got a room with a garden view. The rooms have been remodeled and are very nice. We only stayed one night so we didn't take advantage of the kitchenette but appreciated the fridge for our leftovers. The grounds were well maintained and twilight mini golf was fun with my daughter.... More

RCI rep. recommended this and it was challenging! Room not remodeled in years and dirty, activities taught by people who learned yoga and water aerobics on UTube they said, restaurant with "adult entertainment" not even fit for adults (with loads of kids around) and bad food. Worst of all were the skunks every night!!! We traded a great 3 bedroom... More

I truly enjoyed my stay at the San Clemente Inn Resort. They have newly remodeled their rooms. Very nice! The staff was extremely helpful and polite. Will come back again & again. Lovely resort with great staff.

We've stayed here once before. The only reason that we stayed here again is that we didn't have many choices offered to us from our exchange company. In other words, if my wife and I want a studio, it's either here or Winner's Circle. When we checked in on Sunday, we were assigned a room over the parking lot a... More

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
