Above all, you are close enough to the ocean to hear the waves while enjoying exceptional views from any room and the motel’s center lawn. You can admire a great view from your bed, from the Adirondack chairs on the porch, and from the lawn chairs and lounges. Few places in Southern California do this as well. Close to the... More

Loved this little motel by the ocean. It was a bit on the pricey side due to high season, so we could only stay one night, but it was worth it. The view is amazing, the stay is relaxing. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Great great place. Train is just part of the background noise.

This hotel was awesome! Very clean, great customer service and a beautiful view of the ocean and pier. For guests that have a larger vehicle, parking is very, very tight. All rooms have an ocean view, chairs on the porch as well as lounge chairs in the yard.

Enjoyed our visit from check in to check out. We got there a little early and was still able to get into our room... Then on to boogie board at the beach below (we brought our own beach toys) and then dinner at the pier. . The nearby train was not a problem at all during the night, never even... More

Our dear friend, who is a true beach lover, recommended this hotel on our way from LA to San Diego-his description: funky, great location, truly "motel no-tell" type accommodations! Frankly, this would NEVER be my stop if not for our friend! Well, the Beachcomber more than met our expectations for location, view, proximity! Old fashioned motel - concrete block outside,... More

Twelve single story units ocean front on a bluff overlooking one of the most picturesque beaches you'll ever see. White stucco and red tiled roofs. It doesn't get more "San Clemente" than this. Newly remodeled, the entire property is perfection. You will never want want to leave, but if you must, everything is close by. Sunset views over the pier... More

Beachcomber Motel in San Clemente is a charming motel set on a cliff overlooking the San Clemente Pier and Beach. We have stayed at beachfront locations for decades and this has the finest view you could ask for. The motel (my wife had never stayed at a motel before) has been recently renovated and could be described better as a... More

We had originally booked the Hampton Inn for a quick overnight in San Clemente when my daughter-in-law's mother sent an email about the Beachcomber. She and her husband are planning a trip to Southern California in a couple of months, and their friend, a self-proclaimed "beach aficionado" said they MUST stay at the Beachcomber. While we trust the reliable Hampton... More

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
