Wonderful owner. She greeted us with a hug and a smile and made us feel at home. She cooked delicious food for all four guests for both lunch and breakfast. Also took my husband to the farmer's market in the morning and introduced him to San Clemente residents while I was getting ready. It was a great stay and a great experience.

Fantastic Gem in San Clemente

Freda was very attentive and had a wonderful experience at her Bed & Breakfast. I definitely will come back to her 'Always Inn' the next time in San Clemente

A+++ A must Stay!! Home away from home

Posted Nov 14, 2015 on Hotels
This was by far the best stay we've had. Freda, the owner, went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and at home. It was our home away from home! Freda was kind, fun to be around, and all nice, genuine person. I have severe food allergies and she cooked me gluten-free meals, without a hesitation or second thought. Her cooking was superb, I couldn't have asked for anything more from our stay here. We will definitely be returning to Always Inn. We especially liked walking a couple blocks to the beach, where we swam, walked along the gorgeous beach, and visited the infamous pier. There's lots to do in the neighborhood and we felt safe there, too. We walked everywhere and easily came and went from the inn. It's a quiet neighborhood. We were in town for a wedding, where family stayed in several different local hotels. We're so glad we stayed here and our family just raved about our inn. All around-best place to stay! If I could give it more stars, I would!

Freda was such a sweet host, she really makes you feel like you are family. She and her B&B are truly a gem.

The perfect place to stay!

My husband and I arrived on the train in San Clemente and walked up to the B and B! Frieda was not home, but gave us the code to get in and was so sorry she was not there to greet us! She volunteers with the senior center and was with them! I love that lady! We got into the house and our room was lovely! The house was so cool, full of treasures from friedas travels! Again, I just adored her! We are vegetarian and she made us special breakfasts! She is an amazing cook! We stayed two days and had an amazing time! The b and b provides, beach towels, chairs, coolers, boogie boards, water bottles, and whatever we needed! Such a great stay!

nice B & B close to shopping and beach

Posted Jul 21, 2015
Pros: the comfort of home
Cons: everything was perfect
Location: the B & B was close to the san clemente pier and lots of shopping around.
the always inn was an incredible place to stay. Freda, the hostess was an incredible host as well as cook and gave us great advise on where to go in the city. the area was very safe and fun to be in

Never stay at always inn , bad place bad owner

Posted Jul 9, 2015 on Hotels
Horrific. The owner is not honest. Mini fridge in room was filled with owners food so we could not use. Cable did not work. Jetted bathtub was not available because the bath plug did not fit. There was a dirty dog roaming around the entire place even in our room. The dog was unrestrained even when the owner left. Breakfast was burnt. Had the owner check our room before we left, she did and was very nice. Until she accused on of stealing a dollar store beach at. And now she is trying to charge us an extra person for our infant, after we left. This lady is not honest, house was dirty with dog hair everywhere. It seemed like a hoarder lived there.
