We stayed 3 days at the Inn on our road trip along the Californian coast - specifically in San Clemente as my husband wanted to surf the Trestles.
After reading bunch of reviews on tripadvisor we found this Inn and luckily they had still a room available (we literally called 5 minutes before we wanted to check in).
The rooms are very basic but quirky, each room is different, some with funny art and little details. There's no AC but the vents are fine; the rooms are clean and you can park right in front of the door. There's a medium size fridge in the room which came handy for me to keep the wine cool :). There's a small BBQ kitchen should you want to cook. There's a little noise from the traffic but it's bearable.
Dana, the owner of the Inn is so helpful and friendly, it really makes a world of difference. The place is basic but all in all we really enjoyed our stay here.
