The location of the Seahorse is great. Right across from the pier, an easy walk to the beach is great. The rooms seemed pretty clean, they just needed some TLC. The room I had just seemed a little used, and in need of some maintenance. Maybe a little updating, and some attention to detail would boost the score to a... More

Seahorse is simple non pretentious and a great ocean front location near the pier in San Clemente. No the Ritz but a beach bums delight. Defines ocean front casual at reasonable prices - a hard to find combination - unlock your inner beach bum fantasy

The location was awesome. We had a ground level unit which did not have much privacy because people were walking by all the time but we loved how easy it was to get to the beach so once we got use to it we loved it. We spend time surfing and playing in the water. We ate at the pier.... More

We moved to this hotel after checking out of a busy chain hotel that we decided defeated the purpose of staying in a beach town. (Too far from the water) Extremely glad we decided to make the move to the Seahorse. We had a one bedroom on the first floor that looked out onto the pier. Everyday we could lookout... More

I read other reviews on Trip Advisor before booking at the Seahorse. And those that mentioned Oksana underestimated how awesome this woman is. First of all, I was freaking out after breakfast because I couldn't find my room key and was in a rush to meet a friend. When I went into the office to explain, Oksana smiled and said... More

This European-style inn faces the ocean in San Clemente, with excellent views from all of the rooms. Our “studio” accommodation on the first floor (actually two small rooms) was stylishly decorated. A sitting room with glass doors opened to a street-level patio and ocean vistas. Behind an interior wall, the sleeping area featured a supremely comfortable king bed, along with... More

This place has the best views and located next to some amazing places to eat. I would love to go back. I'm planing on taking the girlfriend. I have family stay here when they come to visit. The staff is fun and very accommodating. It's the best spot to stay in san Clemente.

My husband and I were upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite with balcony and loved it. We will come back again some day we hope. Loved the quiet and view and wonderfully helpful staff. Especially Oxsana. She is the manager and was so kind and friendly. The beach is right across the street and cafes are right downstairs, parking behind... More
