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.

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 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
