The front desk staff was very helpful and quick. I appreciate that everyone was distancing and we a got a nice upgraded room. We come at least once a year, and this year saw a lot of upgrades

Place was great,the only thing that was upsetting was, I made reservations in Sept of 2015. On paper work it says no need to call, I called in Jan wasn't in system they said no problem, I called on Monday (arrival for Wed) , not in the system. They said the info hadn't been sent to their system. Kinda scary when traveling from another state. Might want to look into that,not sure who's end is at fault.

San Clemente Disappointment

Pros: I liked the view.
Cons: I think the room could have been cleaner.
Location: The Inn is in a good location right off the freeway.
There was a set of dirty towels outside the door that I had to call to have someone pick up. There was also a spot on the carpet that made the carpet appear dirty. The room did not smell fresh.

Everything was just ok

Not much to say except that the hotel was dated. Including the VO5 products. Not sure if the company is still in business. Guess I can't complain, the price was about right for the accomodation. Everything was clean and functional. Definitely a family oriented hotel.

Beachy keen

Pros: Great location, nice and friendly staff.
Cons: The room was a little bit worn though very serviceable.
Location: Near Camp Pendleton and downtown San Clemente and pier. Surfers delight: Trestles and San Onofre nearby and practically on top of Calafia.
I had the one-bed small-size room, which was completely charming and quiet. The kitchenette has a small cooktop and microwave, a spotlessly clean near-full-size refrigerator with a big freezer, and a dishwasher with soap. Inside the cupboards -- oh, my! You get everything you'd need to set up temporary housekeeping during your stay. I stayed only one night, but I noticed many people using the pool and mini-golf, and surfers pulling in for the night (there is room in the small-size unit for a longboard). There's tennis equipment that can be checked out, and the library of free-to-use DVDs is substantial. The restaurant is known for big portions at good prices plus a proprietor who likes saying hi to her customers.
