Villa del Mar exceeded my expectations from their online presence. Room #6 was great. What a way to spend the weekend! I am from Riverside and seriously felt like I was on vacation. Check my blog post about Villa del Mar at http://www.closet-creep.com/

We have been going to Villa Del Mar for years. My husband was stationed in San Clemente and we fell in love with its laid back charm. Over the years Villa Del Mar has increasingly raised its prices . We last paid 325 a night. We asked for two beds and got one incredibly uncomfortable queen and one futon that... More

My wife and I just got back from a stay at the Villa Del Mar Hotel in San Clemente CA. We were totally thrilled with the suite, which included a comfortable queen sized bed, living room, kitchen (with all the utensils you would need for cooking) and clean and nicely appointed bathroom with tub and shower. The huge rectangular living... More

I had a great time at Villa Del Mar! Sitting on my patio watching the sunset was awesome and it couldn't be any easier to go to the beach or the pier with restaurants. The staff was as friendly as any have ever seen. Granted; It is an older property, but it was clean and comfortable. For the price, it's... More

Thank you for your review. I'm very sorry that our beautiful Villa suites did not accommodate your tastes. We strive to provide a relaxing beach environment to all who stay with us. Unfortunately, there are certainly external factors that we can't control. I would like to point out that we do not advertise a/c in units and, as a matter... More

This hotel needs serious remodel. It needs new windows, doors and bathroom. This hotel is in poor condition. The balcony door would not close. The bathroom did not have a fan and the shower enclosure was in bad condition. The layout of the room was horrible. The windows are single pane and the walls are not insulated. When the train...

Mid level unit on the south side. Decor is classical "yard sale". Shower barely works(cold is hot and vise versa). Oval toilet seat on a round bowl. No extension cord so the TV was perched on a stand in the middle of the room. Night comes and the back hallway is lite up like a prison camp. Cannot use windows... More

You can not beat the location and view! We love San Clemente and it's beach and vibe. We stayed in room 5 VDM this time (8 last time). Room was similar. I don't care that the motif is outdated and somewhat dirty...it's a beach trip. However, we stayed a week later in the season than last year and the price... More

We had another amazing weekend in San Clemente. Accommodations were the best. Scenic views from the huge picture windows and spacious balcony. Amenities made us feel at home with more than enough space for 4 adults. Office staff is super friendly and accommodating for a special occasion weekend. You really can't get a better spot than this for the price.... More
