I recently stayed at The Inn At Claussen's and I found it refreshing not to stay at a chain .Each room is decorated uniquely. I was on the lower floor and had a private patio in back. It's not on a busy highway with plenty of restaurants and cafes within walking distance. A free glass of wine, fruit and cheese... More

The room was large but dark, the bed was comfortable, The bathroom was very dark...even with a lighted make-up mirror. There was a public patio off the room....nice, but required the only window in the room to be shuttered for privacy. Be sure to request a room away from the railroad tracks!

I stayed for 4 nights as I had meeting in Moore business school. The hotel is simple and liked its style. The school is within 5-7 min walking distance. There are a lot of restaurants in the surrounding. The staff is helpful and friendly. I only missed a clock in the room and the hot water seems inconsistent. However, I... More

The Inn at Claussen's is the best location if you have a student at USC. It is walking distance to great restaurants and bars. The staff was great and the price is right. Loved the breakfast in bed each morning. I stayed in a front room and was worried about noise but experienced none. Wish I had booked for graduation... More

This inn is interesting. I had a second-floor room with a spiral staircase to the bedroom. The room was nice enough, but I felt the decor needed to be updated. The room was clean, but needed fluffing. The inn is right next to the railroad and the train does come through town and is loud. But, adds to the charm.... More

As a server in the customer service world myself, I fully appreciated this delightful hotel! The atmosphere itself was welcoming and peaceful, and the desk attendant made me feel right at home!

The Inn at Claussen is not your average hotel or Bed n Breakfast. It's better. The staff is great and price is affordable. Every time I stayed, it has been a different experience with the rooms. Each room has it's own unique look and feel. My favorite is what I call Breakfast in Bed and Wine in the evening.

Only had time for a quick getaway for my birthday. So decided to return to The Claussen Inn. I stayed there a few years back and enjoyed the experience. I didn't want to stay in the same room and Mike was very helpful and patient with me. With his help I choose a room I liked even better that the... More

Great staff! Loved the glass of wine upon our arrival. Excellent deli and restaurants within 100 feet - Mr. Friendly's food was great! Unique architecture. Not the cookie cutter place. Breakfast in the room at a time that worked for us was a nice touch! We will be back!

This place was awesome! Great location in five points. Super classy, very clean, beautiful decor, superb staff and very reasonably priced for this level of a place. It was also pretty cool about the historic significance of the building and how they use and or pay tribute to it in their decor and treats. So very impressed. Thanks a ton... More
