You know how you always want to find that hidden gem? That perfect getaway? The one you will return to over and over? Well, this is it! My husband and I are in love with this place.

The Innkeeper, Dana, is the best of the best! We were led to the gorgeous, fun and playful Shag Room. It puts the shag in shagadelic! Yes, it's fun, but it's also super comfortable! This room is actually two rooms, both with comfy beds, perfect pillows, a flat screen and FREE Wi-Fi! Also a fridge, fab powerful shower, and a sitting area that's perfect for relaxing with your coffee in the morning. So convenient - the coffee and coffee maker are furnished, so you don't have to run, half awake, to the nearest coffee house when your feet hit the floor upon waking. And oh, that shag rug under bare feet - delicious!

Super personal touches abound. Great paintings, the cool black panther on the dresser, spotless room and bathroom. We were even greeted with delicious chocolate cupcakes and a bottle of wonderful wine!

It's obvious that a lot of love and care go into this property. As soon as we met with Dana, we knew this was a place we'd return to often. Also, she knows all the great places to dine, surf and play! Whether you want a night on the town, brunch, or a day at the beach, she's got you covered! There's also a communal picnic area in the middle of the property. It is loaded up with everything you need for your own cookout, so cool! There is a grill, microwave, sink, utensils, and even pots & pans. So if you're not keen on dining out, you can make a run to the local store and grill up your dinner right there :) I love this option. Great way to meet other folks as well. We did not do this, but saw several people enjoying steaks and veggies while we were there. Next time we go, we'll grill up some goodies!

Beach is super close, as are so many wonderful shops and places to eat. Dana told us about the Farmer's Market, and we enjoyed that very much. The next day we went to the San Diego Zoo, which is a gorgeous, scenic one hour drive away. When we got back, feet hurting, backs aching, the shag room welcomed and embraced us in a warm hug, magically erasing the aches and pains of two 40-somethings... The hot, steamy power shower felt sooo good after a long day, and then to snuggle into such a comfy bed was just perfect. Ahhh, we slept like babies both nights!

What a memorable weekend, in a memorable place. Thanks Dana, we'll be back!

The INN is a throwback to the typical surfer Motel. Like the ones you picture Endless Summer cast & crew staying. The Manager lives on site which speaks to the "ownership" of the property! Communication with the manager, Dana, and the staff was easy and professional. Room was clean comfortable and very cute! There are standard rooms but I stayed in one of the themed rooms for fun. I was in the Retro room but there are two other very cute ones (the manager showed me all three)! The room was actually a two room set up and had many amenities and a large screen T.V! There is a cute courtyard for grilling and hanging out. The beach is a quick bike ride away! (You could walk too).There are restaurants and stores in walking distance. The OC Tavern was practically next door and had a fun atmosphere and good food! Fun for Sports TV and off site betting if you are into that! So to end this long review of Inn at Calafia Beach, it was Clean, Convenient, and Fun! Highly recommend it for a quick summer road trip! I will be going back with my boyfriend for a long beach weekend!

Great little hotel. Right off the freeway, which makes it easy to find. We drove down to the beach and explored the downtown area, which is very close. There is a golf course behind the hotel so not a lot of noise at night. Huge flatscreen tv's, we didn't have time to watch tv, but there were loads of channels to pick from. Cool, modern layout in the 'retro room', no tubs in the bathroom if you're looking for a soak, but the shower works just fine even though it's a little dated. Bed was nice and firm and lots of fluffy pillows. We travel to San Clemente every year for Christmas eve, and would love to go back to this place next year. There is free parking just outside your room, and I wish we had brought the computer, because there is free wifi also. Hotel feels comfortable, like home. When we got back from Christmas eve dinner, there were candy canes on our pillow!
