Nice property. Great views. Nice mgmt. Lawn is great. Fire pit great. If it had a pool it would be a 5. Parking is very tight. You won't get a truck in. Rooms are in good shape. Kitchen is small but efficient. We will go again.

My boyfriend and I stayed here and loved every minute. We stayed the weekend thru Monday. They have a few bbq's on site complete with utensils which was really nice. The kitchens come complete with pots and pans as well as bowls and anything you would need to cook. We stayed in Unit 6 which had a small coffee maker,... More

We wanted a get away from the kids and enjoy a relaxing place to stay. This was the perfect find. It gives you everything you want with the service of a small hotel, but with the recent updates to the rooms, it is crazy nice. There is a fire pit that was perfect to sit by and watch the sun...

This was my 3rd visit over a 20 year period. I've always loved the Beachcomber from the fist time I found it tucked away on the cliff. In years past it was pretty basic and beachy with no particular decorative theme. The draw is the out of this world ocean view. I was so thrilled to see the design updates... More

We enjoyed a "girls weekend B-day trip" in this lovely location. Close to boardwalk, restaurants and lovely San Clemente. Great place to relax, walk the boardwalk, beach and lovely town. WE already look forward to our next stay here!

My family was looking for somewhere to get away for the weekend, relax, and enjoy some time together. We love the beach, and the Beachcomber Motel seemed like it could be a fun place spend the weekend. Little did we know how BEAUTIFUL, and enjoyable it would be. Every room has an AMAZING VIEW of the ocean. Our room was... More

First of all let me just say how gorgeous this place is! I absolutely loved staying here! It's so original.. Definitely nothing like a chain hotel. The customer service here is outstanding, super welcoming & friendly! The views here are phenomenal! My favorite part is definitely sitting next to the firepit while hearing the waves.. Such a wonderful place!

We had such a nice time. Your rooms were perfect for our family. The kids bunk beds and the full kitchen were a total hit for us! The price was very fair. We were able to cook full meals in the room. The beds were so comfortable. It was the view and fire pit and night that we loved the... More

Wow. The place has been completely renovated. We've stayed at the Beachcomber for many years. The new management has turned this ocean front classic into something great. All the rooms have been redone, including new mattresses. Best you order a small rental car. Parking is tight. Free parking and fast internet Well done Beachcomber! We'll be back!!
