Freda is a warm and gracious hostess (ably assisted by her wonder dog, Indie 500). The small size of the inn (only three guest rooms) made us feel as if we were cherished guests in a private home. Freda was both knowledgable and extremely helpful in suggesting attractions we would never have discovered on our own. All this in addition... More

The always inn is a hidden gem along with Freda and of course Indie 500 (the dog). Freda was so welcoming from the moment we arrived. She went out of her way to help us on our travels. We are 25 and backpacking around the world. Freda and the always inn b&b are the highlight of our trip so far.... More

If you enjoy a warm welcome, and a fabulous hearty breakfast, this is the spot! Freda welcomes one as a long lost friend, even when it's one's first visit. The location is ideal. I walked down to the pier everyday, and to the restaurants of my choice. If you're a minimalist, you may feel overwhelmed by all the tchotchkes. I... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night as a base to explore San Clemente. Our room was very comfortable room, and the locations is excellent. We were able to walk to the ocean pier and to an excellent restaurant for dinner. We attended a local theater production at a venue right across the street from the B&B. Freda... More

Recently spent a couple of days celebrating a dear Friend's Bday exploring SC and we stayed at the Always Inn- What a BONUS !! Freda (the Inn's Owner) prepared a delicious gourmet breakfast and also knows EVERYTHING about the area and shares this valuable info freely. It makes such a difference getting the "Inside Scoop" about where to eat and... More

Freda was an excellent hostess and awesome chef. The brunch was killer. All the extra touches for my birthday: the flowers balloon chocolate strawberries wine and gifts were so sweet and made me feel extra special. I can't wait to go back!

The owner, Freda was so friendly and accommodating. She truly went out of her way for us. I took my mom for two nights to celebrate her 83rd birthday. Freda took it upon herself to get my mom a special treat. She also gave us free passes to visit the San Juan Capistrano Mission. Her breakfasts were wonderful and she... More

I would not recommend anyone rent here or deal with Ms. Freda Danzig. She is an awful person who says hateful things. While the property may be nicely located please be advised this woman is not professional. Save your money and choose another place wisely. This woman has a nasty side you won't want to deal with.
