We decided to squeeze in one more trip before the kids went back to school. I had read the reviews and a friend of our recommended this place as one of their favorite So Cal spots. When we were arrived, we couldn't believe the scenery! It was truly amazing. We felt like we were in Hawaii!! We were up on... More

Believe the reviews. The Beachcomber Inn is simply the best choice you can make if you want to treat your family to a real SoCal beach holiday. It's oceanfront looking over the pier. You can watch your kids boogie board for hours, from your deck, at the clean, safe beach. You can relax in your immaculate, bright and cozy room,... More

We were staying at the beachcomber for a family wedding and ended up booking nearly the whole hotel. All the rooms were stylish and comfortable. Unbelievably close to the ocean, on a little bluff, what an incredible view and we fell asleep every night to the sounds of the surf! My brother in law hates the heat and he was... More

My sister and I spent a night at the Beachcomber for a quick, much needed breath of fresh ocean air. The view from the huge bay window is the beautiful rolling, crashing waves and clear blue sky. Every time we looked out the door or window we felt like we fell into heaven. The living room is also the bedroom,... More

My wife and I love this place. Clean, big windows facing ocean panoramic, porch, expansive grass, 3 minutes to pier and fun restaurants, clean (small ) rooms, nice pleasant management, lots of upgrades last three years. We drive from one beach community south of LAX one hour to stay here and get away 😎

We live in San Clemente and walk the beach trail several times a week. One day we looked up and discovered a hidden gem 10 minutes from our home. Since discovering this treasure, we have stayed with our 4 children on 3 separate occasions in the past couple months. The Beachcomber Inn is situated on a grassy bluff overlooking the... More

Single story. Two buildings with I believe less than twenty rooms. All done a bit different. All have their own little front porch overlooking the grassy area which overlooks the ocean. When we were there a fire was lit and kept every night. We rented a convertible Camaro to cruise up and down the coast but it sat in the... More

We live in San Clemente but we decided to spend a week at this great little property and were extremely pleased with it. It is family run Inn and Jimmy & Carly (the owners) and mom/mother-in-law (Linda) truly made a feel "part of the family." The rooms are small but nicely renovated. The bed was very comfortable and each unit... More

What a treasure! Our rooms (Suite 11) overlooked the pier and the fire pit on the lawn of the property. It was blissful to be rocked to sleep by the waves hitting the shore at night after a wonderful evening spent sharing stories and beer around the fire! The room was spacious and the bed super-comfortable. A great getaway!
