My husband and I stayed here last weekend after purchasing a two night stay through Groupon. We loved it! Not only is it within walking distance to all the great shops and restaurants, but it's only about a 5-10 minute walk to the beach and pier. Frieda, the owner of Always Inn, was extremely welcoming and immediately urged us to... More

I loved this place!The room was nice,(I enjoyed the whirlpool tub and the fire place in the living room), it is walking distance to many shops, restaurants, and the beach, but the customer service was the best!

As others have noted, the location and breakfast at this wonderful B&B are unbeatable, but it's the friendliness and helpfulness of Freda that really makes it successful.When you stay here, you really do feel as if you're staying in a friend's home, it's that relaxed and charming.We felt like part of the family.From now on , we won't stay anywhere...

We arrived late on a Saturday night, however, due to a booking error (not Freda's fault) there were no rooms available. Freda invited us in and insisted she would find something for us. She offered drinks and then set about ringing her housekeeper to get a property ready. She then recommended a place for us to eat whilst she sorted... More

Signed up for a living social deal for 2 nights- although it was a rainy stormy weekend, we still enjoyed our stay at this cute beach bed and breakfast. Our room was a bit on the small side, but it didn't matter as we spent so much time walking around town, at the beach and at local restaurants. The owner... More

This was our first experience at a B&B and me and my husband loved it. We came down on a friday evening and Freida welcomed us warmly with cookies. She made a few suggestions for dinner and let us settle in. That night we stayed in and watched a DVD from the over 100+ collection. The following morning, we anxiously... More

My boyfriend and I could not wait to celebrate out Anniversary and Valentines when we booked our trip to San Clemente. When we arrived we were greeted by the most amazing hostess any one could ask for. Freda was very delightful and full of life. Her smile completely lit up the room making her home extremely inviting.

When I arrived I was welcomed with open arms by Freda the owner of the Always Inn which immediately made me feel at home. And an eclectic and charming home it is. Cozy and comfortable with all the amenities one would need for a memorable stay. Now all that would have been enough to entice anyone for a repeat visit... More

We were able to arrive early in the day, on a Saturday. The house is cozy, with so many art objects to ooo and ahhh over. The room was clean and had a private bathroom. It had an electric heater that looked like a pot belly stove. The room also had a private entrance to the beautiful patio, fully equipped... More

My wife and me stayed at Always Inn B&B during the Christmas and New Year season. I have stayed at numerous B&B's and this one is the best. The location is incredible. A short walk and you are at the beach. Numerous local shops, restaurants and art galleries are a 2 minute walk from the door. Freda is an incredible... More
