Capistrano Surfside Inn
Ranked #6 of 12 Hotels in Dana Point
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 August 2017

Room was dated but clean and equipped. Staff was super responsive and friendly. Lots of beach equipment readily available for use. Location is great, you can walk over the bridge and you are at the Capistrano Beach, no need to drive and pay to park. Directly next to a decent Mexican restaurant. We got take out and it was great.

Room Tip: view of sunset on the north side

The resort is showing definite improvement with the new management. Every thing and every body were wonderful. The added activities are good. Can't wait to see all the units upgraded. The beach just across was very rocky therefore suggest you ask staff which better beach you should drive to.

Nice Rooms like an Apartment with a Full Kitchen, 1 or 2 Bedrooms, Living Room, 1 or 2 Bathrooms and a Balconey w Gas Grill. A lovely, small, quaint, and homey resort. Location is great in between Dana Point and San Clemente. Guests need to use crosswalk out front to cross Pac Coast Hwy and stairs over the train tracks to reach Doheny Beach which is known for its ROCKY beach. Nice for walks and bike rides. Traffic on PCH can be a little noisy. Along w the passing trains, which we have grown to love. Must request Ocean Front or guests will view the cliff in rear rooms. Free Bike Rentals and Free Beach Equipment. Small Pool and a Hot Tub. Close to New San Clemente Outlet Stores which holds an Awesome Car Show on Sat Mornings.

Stayed: July 2017, travelled with family

Capistrano Surfside Inn is outdated however, very clean, comfortable and has all accommodations.
We are not a Timeshare owner. We called direct from a Resort website since that resort website claimed all places full.
When I called Capistrano Surfside Inn direct number, I was greeted with care, and kindness. The clerk was very helpful.
Upon arriving, we were happily greeted by front desk people.
The room was perfect. one of our guests sleep on the couch and didn't even pull out the sofa bed as the couch was extremely comfortable. The front desk personally brought us a pillow top cover for the sofa couch bed but we didn't use. The king master bedroom and queen bedroom was perfect. The vanity area was large enough in the master bedroom area and the queen bedroom has its own sink area. That was awesome as 3 ladies prepping for the evening as Dana Point has great restaurants and live bands throughout.
The offer to free bikes, umbrellas, boards, chairs was very inviting. We ended up hanging out via the trolley we caught out front and took a short ride to Salt Creek Beach which Wade at the front desk impressed upon us to spend the day.
their pool is big enough and felt great after a day at the beach.

Room Tip: PCH 1 is located out front but does not really offend the visit.
