Stayed here for 2 nights at Christmas. They are dog friendly so we (hesitantly) brought our two Golden Retrievers with us. We went to dinner and the Innkeepers offered to sit wih our dogs. When we returned several hours later, the dogs ignored us! Craig and Sonia, the innkeepers took them out for a walk and played with them until we got back. At the end of our stay, none of us wanted to leave. We all fell in love with the Inn and the Innkeepers.
It is right in the middle of downtown San Clemente,with wonderful stores to shop, The rooms are spacious and clean and they serve the most fantastic breakfast I have ever eaten. In the evenings, we sit around the fireplace with our hosts, sip wine and and have a great time. We have been back for a short visit several times with the dogs and are planning and overnight stay in the near future. We also have made reservations for next Christmas. There really is a Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus. They are the Innkeepers at ALWAYS INN in San Clemente, California.
Enjoy, Bob, Judi, Shadow and Remedy

Fantastic! It was a beautiful place, right in the heart of everything. The hosts were wonderfully accommodating and took care of every little detail. The food was great and the place was clean, very comfortable and charming.

If you're looking for a small little B&B for a relaxing weekend down in San Clemente (or the Beach Cities area), look no farther than Always Inn. Craig and Sonia are the newer (since the end of 08' if I remember correctly) property managers and are doing an excellent job of running the place. Unfortunately Sonia was on a personal trip so we did not get to meet her but Craig took great care of us. We stayed in the "Palm Whisper" room which was just big enough for the two of us. Comfortable bed, nice flat screen with a very nice selection of DVDs to watch if there was nothing on TV. They had several patios to relax on and have breakfast on, if you so choose. Craig cooked us an amazing breakfast both mornings and is quite the coffee aficionado (make sure to ask what he's brewing). The B&B is one block from Del Mar (one of the main shopping/dining streets in San Clemente) and about a mile or so from the beach (easy walk down Del Mar). All in all a great place to stay for 5 star amenities without the 5 star stuffiness. We'll definitely be back!

What a great place for a romantic getaway. The house sits as a garden oaisis on what would otherwise be a lonely corner. A short walk up the slightly winding brick and stone walkway with gardens to each side leads you to the front door. The first thing that I said when I walked into the rather eclectically furnished front room was "Honey, I'm home". This place gives you a warm comfortable feeling. This tone matches the owners personalities as well, very friendly and down to earth. Our room was a bit on the small side, but there are at least two other rooms available, one larger, and another very large but the semi-private patio and lush gardens more than make up for it. We were treated to a full breakfast on both mornings of our stay. We could have eaten in the dining room, but why do that when there's two outside eating areas. We ate in front garden fhe first day, surrounded by lush, green gadens, and the side patio the second, joined by two other guests, adjacent to the side gardens. The breakfast was great and was nice as well, as we were ready for exploring this quaint little town as soon as we left for the day. I'd recommend this place for families as well, as the front room has a tv, books and CD's, and games. Overall, I can't say enough about how great our stay was. We will definately be coming here again, but first want to check out the mountain cottages that are also available through this owner. If you're into chrome and glass, you won't find it here. If you are looking for what we believe a true "bed and breakfast" shoud be, then you've found the right place.

This is my second time back this year at The Always Inn B&B, but I have to say this stay was even better than the first. Under the same ownership, Always Inn has a new couple overseeing the property. Craig and Sonia have really poured their hearts into the house. Each room spotless clean inside and out, with a new refreshing and relaxing atomosphere thoughout. Not that I didn't have a nice stay the first time around, especially with breakfast made by the owner herself. Even though this is a smaller house, we never even ran into the other two couples during our entire stay.

I would strongly suggest a stay here if you are looking for a perfect location (one block to downtown shopping with quaint restaurants and a few blocks from the beach), friendly hosts, and a relaxing get-a-way.

My wife and I will definitely be back soon.
