Frida's kindness and warmth was exactly what my sister and I needed for a weekend getaway for us to remember our mother. Great location, delicious food and comfy rooms/beds. Frida's company and that of her dog and friend filled our hearts and stomachs. ❤️

We do a ton of traveling and I must say, this was probably one of the nicest stays ever, mind you I do a bit of traveling. We had a warm welcome by Freda and her friend. The room was very cozy and the bed super comfortable. There was goodies at the house and fresh fruit. Freda was extremely hospitable...

My husband and I recently traveled from Florida to California. We were staying in Palm Desert for the week but took a day trip to the coast to enjoy views of the Pacific Ocean I once called home. On our way back, we were both exhausted and, through TripAdvisor, found the Always Inn B&B. Fortunately, Freda had an open room...

The wife & I wanted to get away for the Easter Weekend at the last minute and we were lucky to book the Always Inn.. Read the reviews and knew that we could possibly be sharing the B&B home with others, which we thought may be a lil awkward. However when we arrived Freda, Host & owner greeted us and...

Freda is the most hospitable innkeeper and she serves such fresh, yummy food (not only huge gourmet breakfasts, but cookies, and a few other surprise snacks). She's full of generosity and helped my mom and I get the most out of our getaway weekend by making shopping and restaurant recommendations. We will definitely return!

My sister and I stayed at Always Inn just after Christmas. Freda was kind, helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were supremely comfortable ... location is awesome - right off the main street in the gorgeous village of San Clemente. Could not have had a better stay ... except maybe if we could have stayed...

Freda is the passionate owner who is eager, very eager to please and ensure you are made welcome, and make the most of your stay in the delightful town of San Clemente which she is so proud of. A VERY personal, small B&B with a very homely feel and superb artworks and a superb central location for all local amenities....

The owner was delightful. She has been in SC for many years and gives excellent recommendations for restaurants and shopping all within a block or two. A short walk (downhill) to the Pier and beach areas. A few minutes drive to the San Juan Capistrano historic area. Found this charming B&B on Rocketmiles. Be sure to call and confirm your...

I just love this little slice of heaven! Frieda is the best! Great location near downtown but quiet, a short pleasant walk to the pier. Frieda is very accommodating and flexible about making your stay wonderful. Her rates are very low she just loves what she does. Knows everyone in town and is delighted to help you. It's a delightful...

Nelson, you were a delight to host and we can't wait for you to visit and stay a little longer in San Clemente! I was trying to think of your second doggie's name - Molly and ? Bring them next time.

This summer I stayed the third time in Always Inn. I love this place especially the hospitable Freda who is the owner of the bed & breakfast. One thing you never will forget is the gorgeous breakfast with fresh fruits, bacon, eggs, delicious dips etc. When I stay there I feel at home. Looking forward to my next stay there....
