Had a wonderful first-time bed and breakfast experience here! Loved Teddie, our host for the weekend, and her delicious breakfasts! Looking forward to returning soon! Our bed was a little uncomfortable, but other than that, everything was perfect!

This is a wonderful place to stay

The building is centrally located in town. It's cute and quaint and nicely appointed. There's only three rooms and all three are very spacious and beautifully decorated. The woman who owns it, Frieda, is friendly and engaging and is a superb hostess. She cooked a fabulous breakfast and encourages everyone to enjoy the serenity of San Clemente.

Very poor accommodation

At the last minute we were "updated" so we gave up our reserved room. The upgrade looked like a converted garage. Not close to the beach....the TV screen was a the size of a computer, the bed linen was mis-matched. Certainly NOT worth the money I paid. Very uncomfortable bed. Would never book through this company again.

The last time I came I loved this place which is why I came back and brought my boyfriend. However this time the breakfast was bland, no drinks besides coffee the oj was watered down.. The room was nice but for the price I was defiantly not as impressed as the last time I was here.

Very disappointed in our stay... I paid for 3 nights and only stayed the one night. Our room was clean but the chips that were in our room as a snack were outdated by 5 months. I felt like I was staying in a strangers home! The front of the house was fine but Fredia's bedroom and her office (the garage) were messy and stuffed so full it was as if a horder lived in there. Breakfast was at 9:00 am and a no show by Fredia??? Wouldn't recommend this to anyone.

Right in town

We enjoyed our stay at the Always Inn to the max. The owner, Freda, was as nice as could be. Her cooking is to die for. Her breakfast's will keep you going all day long and only the most freshest of foods were used. The Always Inn is just one short end of the block away from all downtown shops. The walk to the pier is probably less than a half mile and gives you a chance to walk off all that great food that Freda will try and stuff you with. The bedroom was fine, but who wants to hang out in the room when there is that great Pacific Ocean just down the street with walking trails and ocean views galore. We are going back in October to renew our friendship with Freda and enjoy that great San Clemente Pacific Ocean.

Great bed and breakfast, 10 minute walk to beach

Posted Aug 21, 2013
Pros: The location was perfect. Very clean, we felt right at home.
Cons: If only we could have stayed longer.....
Location: Lots of great restaurants and boutique shopping. Close to the famous san clemente pier.
Wonderful place to stay! Right in the center of San Clemente and only a ten minute walk to the beach. Freda, the owner made us feel right at home. She cooked us a wonderful breakfast and provided us with snacks, sunscreen, beach towels, chairs and boogie boards for the day each day.

Always Inn in San Clemente CA

Posted Aug 12, 2013
Expedia should de-list this hotel ...the owner was out of town and the only contact we had was a part time taxi driver who showed up at 4.45 pm to let us in ...breakfast was terrible and the kitchen was filthy with dirty dishes from past meals piled up in the sink. This reduced another guest to tears. Our advice is to stay away from the Always Inn. Waste of hard earned money!!!
