The Capistrano Surfside Inn is close to many of the beach cities so this was a plus. We found excellent restaurants in SJC, New Port Beach, Laguna Beach and San Clemente. This resort seemed to be quite clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a 2 BR unit which was to have an ocean view. We were at the end of the hallway, unit 217 on the second floor. Unfortunately, we looked out onto the huge structure which provided beach access across the highway, which was in front of the resort. We could see the ocean on either side of it but the structure was predominant. Also, the train came by a lot and was just on the other side of the highway. We had trouble sleeping for the first three nights but moved into the second bedroom for the rest of the week. It was much quieter there. The linens were changed by us midweek but the staff delivered whatever we requested. There is no free cleaning service during the week. The unit was dated but okay. The king mattress was very firm but the queen mattress was much softer. We had to pay $10 a day for our daughter to park her car in the underground lot--even though there were plenty of parking spaces. I can see charging if there are only 5 spaces available for extra vehicles, but only half the spaces in the entire lot were used the week we were there. They did provide free WIFI in the units.
