To be honest, I was expecting the typical old motel where everything is outdated and doesn't work. Well, I was totally wrong and surprised to find the opposite. I booked on short notice for Memorial Day weekend, my first choice was San Diego but booking...More

San Clemente surf motel- less than a mile away from the beach but not crowded as other beach towns. Friendly and Helpful management. Every room has a fridge and AC/Heating units and is a little different ...More . Outdoor shower, a kitchen sink and a microwave in central Gazebo area. Steps away from OC Tavern and other restaurants and entertainments. 16 room carpet free, beach motel with free parking, great hospitality, digital TV and outdoor seating. Cool, fun, retro motor lodge- clean and efficient. No, it's not the Ritz so please don't review us based on Ritz standards. We do the best we can with what we've got and most people really enjoy the property. We back up to the golf course and are a mile from San Clemente State Beach. Boogie board offered upon request. Close to Camp Pendleton, Trestles. About 30 min from LEGO land. Pet friendly rooms available upon request. Less
