We thoroughly enjoyed our two-day stay here. Freda is gracious and personable, making you feel like a member of the family the moment you walk in. The breakfasts were terrific, and Freda is more than willing to recommend local eateries for great dining out experiences. The inn itself enjoys a highly eclectic decorative style, although we happened to come just... More

My stay here was like no other. We came to stay with Frieda to attend a memorial service for a family member. She greeted us at the door and instantly made us feel like family. She was kind and compassionate and our room was cozy, just like a home away from home. Her food is terrific and the location is... More

Guest are able to see the FILTH of kitchen, laundry room etc. Shower/ bath was not Jacuzzi or even close and did not work properly even as a shower. Missing or broken blinds all bedroom windows so no privacy what so ever.

This review is more than bizarre in its accusations and inaccuracies. We do not have a guest by your name who stayed at our tiny three room property during June 2014 so will contact tripadvisor.com to get more information about your review and credentials. We strive to serve our guests with a servant's heart as evidenced by winning Tripadvisor.com's award... More

We had such a lovely time at Always Inn. We had an event to attend in the evening at Casa Romantica, so it was a perfect location to walk to the Casa. The rooms were so clean and the owner has so many interesting photos and decor that you feel like your staying in a cozy travel museum. All you... More

We were very grateful that we found the Always Inn in San Clemente, CA for my husband's birthday weekend. He had just arrived from Panama, Central America and wanted a quiet retreat type place and we found it at the Always Inn. The breakfasts were delicious and the owner, Frieda, was a delight and most helpful. If you plan to... More

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

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
