“Comfortable and Cute”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Stayed one night with 2 teenagers. It was overcast and gloomy and we enjoyed the warm salted pool during the day. The room provides plenty of towels for showering and for the pool. The kids really liked sleeping in their own twin beds while watching the free rented movies. All the staff was friendly and helpful. The grounds are clean and there's plenty of parking. We will return to this property.

We stayed at the beach property in early June. Could not have been more pleased. The condo was very clean and only a block from the beach. Close to shopping and restaurants. If you are looking for a peaceful paradise this is the place for you. Will definitely return.....

First time staying here but would definitely come here again. Great location and fantastic staff who truly want you to enjoy your stay! The kitchenette is very adequate and the recreation room has everything to keep you entertained. Did I mention the swimming pool and hot tubs?

This place has a really nice location right off the 5 and close to the beach. Though it's close the the 5 it's very quiet. The hot tubs and pool are very nice. There is a great game room in the clubhouse with pool, air hockey, a television, and foosball. The walk to the beach is short and there is a great running trail along the beach. The Surfliner station isn't far, if you'd like to ride someplace. You can ride your bike south quite a ways without dealing with traffic, through the San Onofre Nuclear Plant, State Park and Camp Pendleton.

The rooms are all newly updated. Granite counters. New carpet, furnishings, cabinets, decor.

Check out the Surfin' Donuts on the other side of the 5. Best fritter you will ever eat. Seriously. The closest Mexican restaurant is El Mariachi. It is fantastic for dinner. We went there instead of this place we really wanted to go to in Del Mar (but didn't want to drive) and we were delighted. Terrific service. Pedro's Taco stand is a delicious, quick lunch place. Great fish tacos.

(I can't wait to bring my RV to the state camground that's right next door. It looks awesome too.) We've stayed at San Clemente Inn before and we'll be back again. You should try it soon. You won't be disappointed. The grounds are park-like and really well kept.

Room Tip: There are no elevators, so get a room on the ground floor if you're not up for stairs.

This is the second time we stayed here and it is even better than before. The rooms have been updated since our last stay and the grounds are immaculate. The staff is very friendly and helpful and answered all our questions.
It's also nice to have a place that doesn't kill you with extra charges for everything. They offer free wifi,movie checkout,games and more.Also,the onsite restaurant is convenient and very reasonable.
This is an ideal location to explore north and south along the california coast. both LA and San Diego are within 50 miles,with plenty of attractions in between.
We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: To anyone with diabilities or access issues. The second floor is actually at ground level and the fi...
