Came here for a family getaway for my husband's birthday. Every one working here was so welcoming and accommodating, the room was great (clean, ceiling fans and big windows so you could enjoy the beach air), and an amazing grassy spot overlooking the water for guests only...This location can not be beat. Hop skip and a jump to the beach, and the city's free trolley to the downtown area picks you up just across the street. We loved our visit to San Clemente and the Seahorse Resort will be our new go to.

Hotel's Favorite
I have been staying here every year since the early 90s. It has become a home away from home for my wife and I. We love the location of the hotel. We love the small beach town atmosphere. It is the best!

This "resort" is run down condos marketed as a hotel. The ocean front view is great, but there were no curtains on any of the windows, only sun shades that were transparent at night. The area was very noisy with buses and the train going past. There were multiple steps to all levels with no accommodation for handicapped or less agile. The staff was friendly and accommodating as best they could be under the circumstances.

Dear Brenda Z, Thank you for taking a moment to review your stay with us. We realize that we're not everyone's cup of tea, but we sure do try to be. Some of the best things about our location are the views from the rooms, and the proximity to the ocean and pier. But with some of the best things, you attract some of the nosier things like public transportation and commotion from tourism. While we may not have been the right fit for your preferences while traveling, we appreciate the feedback and will be working to install more prominent shades in more of our rooms in the near future. Once again, thank you for staying with us and we wish you all the best on your future travels.

I have been here many times and I’m always so happy to return. You can’t beat the location right on the beach front amongst some great restaurants. Thank you to Ashley for your excellent customer service. I loved our beach front studio with its beachy clean crisp vibe. The studio was cool on a warm night and once we closed the doors it was quiet. Thank you for the stay. It was short but my doggie and I will be back again soon.

We stayed here for 4 days and it is an absolutely beautiful location. We had an ocean front view that was spectacular!! The room was dated but it was clean, well furnished and the kitchen had everything we needed. The view from our balcony far outweighed the dated decor. We had no issues at all during our stay. Check in was smooth as was checkout. Dylan was so friendly and really made us feel welcomed. If you are looking for a beach front hotel, this is the place!! There are wonderful local restaurants with an excellent coffee shop all within walking distance from the hotel. We loved hearing the train go by during the day. It added to the charm of the area. I highly recommend the Sea Horse Resort and we will for sure return again.
