Wow! Home away from home!! My husband and I felt like family. The hostess with the mostest! Freda is so generous and so helpful, her desire is to make sure her guests have everything they need, and then some.

Our 34th anniversary weekend could not have been more perfect and all because of Freda! She is so special and makes everyone else feel special too. Her cooking is amazing! Her thoughtfulness is unbelievable....the most giving person ever! Her restaurant recommendations were great. She also arranged a massage for us and a candlelight dinner! Such a romantic day! Her "Indy"... More

Such a quaint home and very comfortable and clean! The breakfast was amazing everyday and Freda gave us great insight into the area! I loved being able to walk to wonderful restaurants and shops. We had to leave unexpectedly early on the day we were leaving and Freda even gave us a bag for our breakfast to go! We will... More

What an AMAZING weekend! We had a problem with or booking on hotels.com but Freda helped resolve the situation so that my husband could keep our plans. But that was simply beginning. Freda is an amazing hostess and a wonderful cook. You really need to come enjoy her wonderful meals! Wonderful "comfort gourmet" breakfast. She was full of wonderful recommendations... More

Nothing better can be said than that it felt like we were at home our entire stay. Freda was such an amazing host. We had never met until our stay and when we walked in the door her smile and warmth made it feel like we had knew her our entire lives. Our room was very nice with snacks a... More

AlwaysInn is an excellent B&B in San Clemente. Freda was a very welcoming hostess and cooks a great huge breakfast. This is right around the corner from cool shops and restaurants. And Freda's little dog Indy was very welcoming to me and my wife. We were celebrating our 7th anniversary.

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
