We had a wonderful stay and it was a great value! The front desk staff were so polite and helpful, they offered us snacks and gave us a wonderful recommendation for dinner. Our room was clean, well stocked, and had a really cute theme. The hotel is just a few minutes away from the downtown area with tons of cool shops and restaurants. We slept well and check out was a breeze.

Perfect Cali beach style Inn right near beaches
Updated, very affordable, clean, and comfortable room. If you’re looking for a no frills Cali beach motel/inn style room because you plan on spending the day outside of it - this one delivers and hits all the marks especially for the price point. What is provided, is on target. Communal kitchen was more than adequate. Owners and staff were very helpful, some of the best service ever. They even called the day after checkout to let me know a room had become available after I inquired earlier in the day about extending my stay.

Very friendly and attentive front desk staff. The room is very simple but it met my needs. Perfect location to downtown San Clemente and the beach. My Uber driver said these units were recently renovated and I think the new owners did a great job. I enjoyed my stay and I would definitely stay here again.

Clean and comfy. They need to figure out the ICE situation and work on the group coffee station. Close to the beach and relatively quiet.
