Last minute booking, very accommodating. On the side of the hill coming away from the pier, it's an updated old-style motel. Grounds are great, plenty of places to sit and relax. Rooms appear to have been updated recently, they are retro-cool. One of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Nice clean modern bathroom. Handy addition of a... More

You can't beat the view, and the rooms (we had # 5 & 6) have all been redecorated and are very comfortable in all ways. The hosts were friendly, helpful and very interested to make our stay enjoyable. Location to pier, restaurants & the village make it ideal. We'll be back & will bring more friends & family! Loved hearing... More

Quaint small units each with its porch overlooking San Clemente pier, Pacific sunsets and a large private grassy yard for guests' use. Amtrak stops nearby. Enjoy the ocean from the train en route, and even more from your porch. Absolutely Unique!

We love to spend special occasions at the Beachcomber. It is nothing fancy but it has all the necessities you could need. The showers are a little small but when you get a unit with the full kitchen, it's convenience at it's best. We live only 30 minutes from here so we like to bring most of our food and... More

Just got back from my mini vacation in San Clemente. I staid at the Beachcomber Motel and I feel like I have been gone long time. It was wonderful, very relaxing, loved my room, Nr. 10. The view is outstanding, very quiet, all I could hear was the ocean sound and sometimes the train, which I love. The room was... More

Absolutely stunning location. The views to the Ocean are exquisite. The room was large and very comfortable with well equipped kitchen (fridge AND freezer) and bathroom with good shower. Patio seats let you sit and gaze over the ocean watching surfers and the beach. The Amtrack Surfliner runs between the rooms and the beach but it is below eye level... More

You simply cannot find a better view of the ocean in San Clemente! Beautiful grass, tables chairs bbqs, thatch covered picnic tables, and the ocean just 75 feet away and down about 25-30 feet. Simply paradise! Hotel is undergoing renovations. Only problem is the bathroom (especially the sink and shower) are small.) but for that one small detail, this place... More

Motels are not usually the place i want to make a destination. It is more of a pit stop. This one is adorable however! The old Spanish Style is charming and the rooms, while dated to the 50's are clean and fresh. As you sit on the lawn (that is on a bluff) or right from your room the view... More

Fire pits for night talking ..quality time with family....the management is very kind and helpful....and my favorite part....falling a sleep to the sound of the ocean crashing... More

Ok, this is not a resort, a timeshare rental, or a hotel. As the name suggests, it is a motel and if you going in knowing that, you won't get any surprises. The manager is very nice. The views are excellent. I don't think you could get a better/closer view. The train noise is not too bad (if you think... More
