The hotel itself is located near the SJC mission. Rate was fair market value at $100 per night. There was pink mold in the shower (yuck), but in all fairness it is an older hotel, and if you know San Juan at all, well, a little shower mold never killed anyone - at least it wasn't black mold, right? Otherwise,...

Stayed at the BW in San Juan Capistrano on New Year's Eve, I was concerned about the potential for a crazy party night but my fears were groundless. Calm and everything I could have wished for in a peaceful night's sleep. Next morning we had a pleasant New Year's welcome from the breakfast staff. Great staff, great place and very...

We attended a Christmas Party & most of us were from out of town. The BW Capistrano Inn was very accommodating by picking us up & dropping us off at the train station & restaurant where Party was held. The staff was very courteous & accommodating & rooms/bed very comfortable.

Booked a Friday night stay due to attending a concert at the Coach House. Capistrano Inn is a partner hotel offering a discount to concert goers. We stayed here years ago and liked the location. Booking the room was easy and quick. Requested a ground floor room and when we arrived our room was ready and as requested. Checkin was...

I don't often get the opportunity to travel, but being that my daughter and her family relocated from Chicago to southern California, I was finally able to visit them. I rode the Amtrak from Albany, Or and this location worked out quite well. Walking distance from the station took me around fifteen minutes or less. Room 405 was in a...

This place is in need of improvement and renovation. Carpet in room was frayed, signage to hotel bad. Room was very dark and shabby. Won't stay here again. Needs to be upgraded. Not up to Best Western standards.

This was an excellent choice and I would stay again. I wish the room was a little less expensive. It was a convenient distance to the horse show my granddaughter was competing at. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable.

We really enjoyed the town of San Juan Capistrano. So many interesting sites to visit. We had good service and the service counter guy was helpful to me on a couple of decisions. First he helped make a good choice for our room site. Then explained how to get to another shopping area I was interested in visiting. But my...
