I love this hotel/resort for several reasons. This hotel is very clean, great location and friendly/professional staff. Parking was easy and conveniently located. The oceanfront deluxe studio was perfect. My check in with Tiyona was very welcoming. This was my second stay and it was wonderful.

This was my second stay at the Sea Horse Resort, and it was as fantastic as the first time. It was my and my husband's first real vacation together, and we absolutely loved it. Our room included a King bed and a lovely balcony that looked out onto the ocean and the San Clemente pier, along with a kitchen, nice bathroom, and a sitting room. We stayed 5 nights, so it was great to have a dresser and side tables to keep things in, along with a rack and hangers to hang our nice clothes on. The kitchen was awesome, they had it stocked with all of the dishes and utensils we could possibly want, along with pots and pans to use on the gas stove. It also had a full size fridge and a microwave. The sitting room had a large tv and couches, and there was a dining table we could pull out if we wanted. The balcony was my favorite part. It was furnished with 2 really nice outdoor chairs with foot rests, a table and chairs to eat at, and an umbrella to block out the sun. It was so relaxing to sit outside and enjoy the sounds of the street below and the ocean. We left our windows open the whole trip, and it was magical to hear the ocean night and day. The beach across the street is great! The resort offers beach umbrellas, towels, chairs, and toys for guests to check out. The chairs are great, they fold so that they can be worn like a backpack, and they have pockets to store anything you might want to take with you to the shore. The sand at the beach is so soft, and we really got to enjoy it without having to buy beach stuff that we'd only get to use maybe once every couple of years. We had a special gated entrance to the street that made us feel safe and separate from the crowds while granting us easy access to the street and the beach beyond. I truly cannot recommend Sea Horse resort enough. The vibe is great, the amenities are fantastic, and there are fantastic places to eat right below the rooms. I will absolutely be back!

We stayed here after coming up for a day trip. Our room was fabulous. Two patios facing the ocean with a beautiful view. I will definitely stay here again. This would be a great family vacation stay as there were two rooms, two bathrooms, a full kitchen and a large living room. The only odd thing was someone left a package of raw chicken outside our front door in the morning. Not sure what that was about but it’s a funny memory.

We vacationed here over the summer and will make Sea Horse our home away from home whenever in San Clemente! Location is the perfect proximity to the pier/beach as well as local shops and restaurants. Staff was courteous and willing to go above and beyond to assist with dinner reservations. Due to covid a few things had changed like having to wear masks in the lobby and housekeeping not coming into rooms to clean, but they did a daily service which brought us fresh linens which was sufficient. Overall, we had a relaxing and peaceful stay at the Sea Horse and can’t wait to come back!

This was our 3rd stay at Sea Horse and was the best. They have renovated the units. We stayed in #4. The location can’t be beat! I adore San Clemente and this hotel is the spot to be. The unit was huge. Full kitchen and huge balcony. Do yourself a favor and book here. *unable to select actual month we stayed. Oct 2020*

While it is located close to the beach, it was sad to view a homeless population out in front of the resort, every time we sat on our balcony. The walls are very thin and we heard loud dogs running around above us. Management was quite rude and unwelcoming. Our room was not ready at check-in. We had to come back twice after the designated check-in time to finally get in our room. We viewed a maintenance man smoking a cigarette on the steps to our room as we were waiting to get in. Not a great impression. I would suggest spending your money elsewhere.

Dear Tropicalgem, Thank you for taking a moment to review your stay with us. On behalf of the team, I want to apologize that your room was not ready at time of check-in. It is our standard to have rooms ready by 3 PM and we understand that missing this goal not only starts your vacation off on the wrong foot, it is a true inconvenience. We believe there may be confusion in terms of staff as we have one Maintenance Manager who does not smoke. Any staff member found smoking on this property would be immediately disciplined as we take our no-smoking policies very seriously. While we cannot control the members of our community, we can control our actions and how we treat our guests. As manager of the property, I want to personally apologize for any interaction that we may have had that resulted in you finding me rude and unwelcoming. Unwelcome is the absolute last thing on earth I'd want a guest to walk away from our resort feeling and for that I cannot apologize enough. If you would like, I would be grateful for the opportunity to speak with you more about your stay on the phone to see how we can improve our guest experience and learn from these fumbles. If not, I understand and I wish you all the best on your future travels to San Clemente.

Right on the beach next to the San Clemente pier, great seafood on the pier, awesome pizza joint down the block, perfect beach access. Room was comfortable, parking was a little tight, don’t drive anything big to stay here. Staff was friendly. No better location if you wanna spend a week at the beach!!

Had the pleasure of staying here last summer on the word of a close friend that this would be the nicest, most hospitable stay in San Clemente, and we weren't disappointed! This hotel is not a chain, so everything is done with a personal touch. The staff is so nice and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. You can really tell just how much love is put into this place. Kayla made our stay extra special by making reservations for my fiancé and I at a lovely local restaurant to celebrate our recent engagement. Situated right across the street to the beach, you're close to so much this tiny town has to offer. The staff are locals, so they always know which place is best to get the full experience. The hotel is inviting, the rooms are large, clean, well-stocked and overlook the ocean. We left the porch door open and let the sound of the ocean fill the space all night. And the cafe a couple doors down served us well for breakfast before hitting the beach. A huge plus this hotel offers is they have beach chairs, umbrellas and clean towels ready for use incase you didn't pack yours. I'll just say it simply, if you come to San Clemente and don't stay at the charming Sea Horse Resort, you're making a huge mistake.
