We did rci timeshare exchange to stay here in February. The manager Amanda was very helpful in facilitating our stay! She arranged for us to upgrade to two bedroom unit when our party expanded from 2 to 6. We were in unit 216 with large covered deck and great view of ocean and beach. Not all units have ocean view ask staff before coming. Excellent room sizes. Bed in master bedroom was very comfortable. Good kitchen for preparing snacks or a meal. Staff very helpful and hospitable.This inn is well maintained and clean. It is on Pacific Coast hwy 1 so much car traffic and trains. There is pool and hot tub which were closed for winter. Shopping is nearby including a costco. Free use of bikes and beach equipment a nice benefit. There is walkway from inn to beach, over the highway. We had a very enjoyable stay!

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us! It's our pleasure to accommodate any special requests that we can. Our pool was closed only because it was resurfaced recently (something we have to do every 10 years). Normally it's open year-round. Thanks for the kind words and we hope to see you again in the future!

We are owners here. It is a timeshare, but they also rent out rooms when they are available. The staff is so nice, especially Augustina. She is so helpful and kind. Definitely worth a stay if they have vacancies .

Capistrano Surfside Inn is a super place just steps to the beach. It is located right under the pedestrian walkway to Capistrano Beach and just minutes to the town of San Juan Capistrano. Our room (on the end) was spacious and comfortable with views of the beach. Even though the train and PCH are right in our front yard, there was no problem with noise. You should know the beach is uncrowded for a reason... the sand here is very gravely and not soft. One plus, though, are the fire rings for evening bonfires at the beach.

Room Tip: Choose an upper level room for best views and no noisy neighbors above you. End rooms are largest.

By the rail road, highway 1, ugly pedestrian overpass for the view. The place is like a retirement housing minus bingo nights. There is a rusty pedestrian overpass that is an eye sore and obscures the beautiful ocean scenery. The whole place smells old and musty.

Guest did not call in advance for a room assignment and the only ocean-view unit left was the handicap unit. She was very upset about having to take the handicap unit.
