Great environment wonderful staff very clean. The pool area is large with a adult hot tub and a kid Spa. Offers putt putt golf in a great BBQ area.

My family stayed there for my husband's Marine Corps retirement! We loved it! Beautiful and affordable! We also enjoyed the Saturday night show! This hotel is in an excellent location near the state park and easy access to the highway. Thank you for the lovely stay!

Our room was great! Perfect for a family with all of the amenities offered. Mini golf, basketball/tennis courts, and pool/hot tubs. The room was great with a fully stalked little kitchen so you could bring your own food. Lots of room and the shower head was actually good and strong which I've never had at a hotel before. Close to...

We stayed for 4 nights. It is still under renovation so the reception was in a mobile trailer but it wasn't a problem. All staff were friendly and helpful and when we reported that our door screen was broken they sent someone immediately to fix it. Pool is heated, plenty of chairs/sun beds poolside. Other complimentary activities include: tennis, mini...

The San Clemente Inn was probably the resort to go to in the 70's. Pros The motel is close to the 101 but we heard no real noise due to good insulation. Lots of parking and a good rate. The room was a studio and very, very clean. Everything appeared new. New light fixtures, lamps, cook top, fridge. The small...

My spouse had mentioned he had stayed at this property some 30 years ago, we have always wanted to stay here. With that in mind (the 30 years), this property is currently undergoing renovations (as of April 2017). Keep in mind that the check-in process is in a temporary storage container (see picture) located at the front of the property....

To be honest this may not be the best review as they are currently under renovation. The reception was in a mobile trailer and was OK but nothing to write home about. The room was clean and neat. The shower had little pressure but that is probably do to the CA water shortage. Our room did have a refrigerator, microwave,...

Property is located at southern, quiet, end of San Clemente just off I-5. Located on hillside overlooking San Clemente State Park about 5 blocks from Calafia Beach. Old-style 3-decker barracks style, currently under major remodel of lobby area. Office is in a portable office container in parking lot. Room good but dated, with a lot of noise transference. Bed firm...

A good option for staying at San Clemente, the suites are somewhat small, but more than adequate for a couple or a young family looking for a location close to the beach with kitchen eat-in facilities.
