 Sea Horse Resort San Clemente, CA  Staff is friendly. Rooms are clean and you cannot beat the location. Friends and I stayed over a weekend in October and the weather was perfect for the beach. We can’t wait to come back.

Hotel's Favorite
This was our first time here and we loved it! Close to everything. Beach is just steps from the front door. Beautiful sunsets, friendly people, great food nearby. The accommodations were perfect for us. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed because we love to get local fresh food and cook at home. The staff was wonderful. I can't say enough good about the Sea Horse! Everything was just great.

Wow! Thank you so much for your sparkling review, crdough! I will pass on your words of praise to our staff because there is nothing we love more than hearing than how great a time our guests had while staying with us. We love the functionality of our kitchens too and it makes vacationing so much for feasible for adventurous travelers and families alike. Dining out can become costly and the money they save on meals can be spent on experiences together. We hope that when you're back in San Clemente that you choose to stay with us again. Thank you so much and we hope to see you soon!

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!

As a Silver Member I have been shocked by the coldness of the receptionist and manager. I thought I had until 12pm to check out. At 11:20 am I received a call from the receptionist. She told me coldly that on their hand I had to leave at 11am. I mentioned then I had a booking for Spring and wanted to upgrade my booking as the upgrade given to me was so appreciable that I wanted to book a Upgraded villa instead of the front sea studio I have booked via hotels.com. She didnt care and replied coldly I had to pack up in 10 mns. They needed the room ready. Then someone came knocking very aggressively on my door and a lady manager asked me to leave in 10mns. I called my husband and she wouldnt talk to him but I wanted to make sure they understood the situation as I have an accent (from France originally). My husband managed to have them calm down and let me pack respectfully my luggages. I came in a business trip to San Clemente. I will never come back to this rude, outrageous hotel that despise Foreign accent. I left the room and place impeccable. The maids won’t have much work as I always do that in hotels. It was a very disturbing and painful experience.

Dear MissV, We are happy that you enjoyed your upgrade and we completely understand that our guests often would like to stay just a little longer in their suites. However, we cannot always provide a late check-out, especially when another guest is due to arrive. We are taking extra sanitizing precautions and need all the time to ensure that the incoming guest has the same experience that you did upon arrival. All guests, including yourself, are made aware of our check out time and initial that policy upon arrival. There was no miscommunication about this fact. While we are not the right fit for you, we do wish you all the best in your future travels to San Clemente.

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*
