I stayed at this hotel for three nights while in the area to attend my sons graduation from Camp Pendleton. The only complaint I have about the Hotel, is a pervasive odor in the room. I had a "no smoking" room, however there was the odor of stale tobacco smoke, or something similar in the room. Other than that, the... More

I found the location of the San Clemente Inn wonderful. Nestled in between San Diego and Los Angles, this spot provides both adventure and relaxation in spades. The inn is very close to a state park and the view I spectacular! If you want to stay on the grounds and chill out, it’s easy and simple. If you want to... More

My family and I just returned from our vacation. The San Clemente Inn is our family favorite. The décor has been updated and is so comfortable. The staff is excellent and attentive. The state park is within walking distance and the beach is right down the hill!

This place is so easy and comfortable. I love Adeles on site. San clemente beach is a 10 minute walk. I can ride my bike from here into town. San Clemente is a lovely beach community. If I could bring my dog here it would be perfect!

After staying here for a wedding I cant quite say this "hotel" is worth being called one. Its more a over glorified motel, 2 levels with a pool restaurant/bar and billiards room. Check in is at 3pm however they have something called Pre- registering which allows at 1pm to check in if you are an early arrival though this does... More

The reviews here are generally right on and don't need further explanation. If you enjoy a small unit within easy reach of the beach for swimming and sunsets, this is a good choice in OC. Here are a few comments and tips: 1. Unlike most timeshares there is daily maid service and plentiful towels provided. This is a serious bonus... More

If you like being near the beach, but not right on it in the crowds, this is the place to go. Rooms with ocean views, sunsets, clean and comfy, and near the sights, kitchens to prepare your own meals, or an onsite restaurant or any kind of restaurant you could want right nearby. Pool, Jacuzzis, saunas, game and exercise rooms,... More

The one bedroom condo was recently remodled and the twin Murphy beds worked out pertect for the boys. The ammenneties are so numerous;pool tables, fooze ball, air hockey,... More

just returned from the San Clemente Inn and would definitely do it again. Nice queen sized bed in the bedroom with plenty of room to set up our little one's pack and play. A little warm in the room because the AC didn't reach in there when the door was closed. Clean room, plenty of room throughout the whole condo.... More
