Location, fair price, decent amount of small
Very old property, floor seemed a bit dirty, no housekeeping during 2 day stay, stubborn lock on my door
cool design Buddha room
The INN is very comfortable, quite yet close to Downtown San Clamente. Staff are SUPER AMAZING! Helpful, kind, friendly, wonderful vibe! If i go back to San Clamente, i would definatelly stay there again! It had everything i needed! Clean, comfortble, very beautiful outdoor kitchen & BBQ, with patio area and fire pit. Excellent way to cook your dinner while watching the sun setting. 5min drive from the Calafia beach, and 3min drive from Ave. Del Mar (downtown main st.)
everything was PERFECT!
nothing fancy, just a perfect, simple place for relaxing by the beach. small, quaint, and comfortable. the staff was most friendly and very accomodating. will be back next time for sure!
Very casual and laid back surfer-style hotel with a great price.
The online reviews don't lie. The owner, Dana is super friendly and helpful. I will go back just to see her again. Good customer service is worth more than an oceanview to me. Other pluses were the early check in and late check out options (by request based on availability), walking distance to food, and the beach a few turns in a car away! I came to write a book over the three day weekend and this was the perfect spot to accomplish that mission!
My room could have been a little cleaner on the details (I.E., dusting), but for the price and motel-type vibe I wasn't being picky. And there was nothing to be done about this really, but be prepared for things to be a bit...buggy. It's the beach! It's not horrible, but they were around. On a similar "nothing can be done" note, there was an incorrigible cricket that hung about in my room the whole weekend, and it was very loud but hey, what can ya do? Headphones solved that problem mainly.
It was the perfect little beach motel for my one night stay. I like that the place had some character to it and the staff were super friendly and welcoming! I would definitely stay here again if I were in the area.
The Inn at Calafia Beach is an example of one of the things we love most about San Clemente- the friendly, helpful people! We were running hours behind schedule because of traffic and the owner called to check on our arrival, She arranged for a self check-in, easing our minds about running late. The first morning, we had no hot water, but by the time we returned from the beach, the problem was fixed- yea! This is not a hotel, but a motel, so it is not a fancy place. But for anyone looking for a very clean facility with a comfortable bed and a flat screen TV on which to watch the Olympics:) after a day at the beach, this is the place! We didn't use the outdoor grill this time, but we will be back and we'll hang out there one evening next time sipping a glass of wine and watching the sun set. Did I mention the ocean breeze that cools the room? No need for an air conditioner! This is a great value!
The only thing that would keep me from returning is the noise from the traffic on El Camino and the freeway- and the accompanying smell of exhaust coming in on the ocean breeze. Our room was on the end; the noise was unavoidable. There's really no fix for that, but I might bring some ear plugs and a scented candle next time.
The management was very friendly and helpful. Not a luxury Inn but clean an comfortable. 5 minutes from the beach. I would diffently stay again.
I liked that it was very close to restaurants.
The advertisement was for a two bedroom, and it was barely a one bedroom. I felt that I was tricked, and should have received a refund of part of my rate.
The location was conveniently close to the beach and shops The staff was friendly and they had an outdoor kitchen and fire pit we did enjoy.
Although this is an older motel, they could do a much better job making it more comfortable. The headboards were filthy, the mattresses were old and lumpy, it wasn't properly cleaned at all! The room only had bed side lamps and one floor lamp, making it very dark and dreary inside. There is no where to place your belongings in the bathroom, so I had to put my things on the floor. Yuck! We stayed during a holiday weekend so the price was probably more than normal. Deffinitely not worth staying there again. We will explore other options in the area if we go back. Comparable to what I'd expect from a motel 6.
We chose this place because we liked the location and rating, which was ranked this hotel (actually a motel).
We were two days with our daughter at this motel. Our daughter was totally disappointed. Everything was kind of small (room, beds, closet for clothes), there was no working A/C, there was not a clothes hanger or a small counter in the bathroom. All our stuff we had to put on the floor - the carpet was dirty. Everything looked kinda poor. When we arrived we had parking for our car, but when we went out in the evening and came back all parking was busy. We certainly will not come here anymore.
Nice atmosphere for an older establishment,,good restaurant recommendation
Room not ready at check-in time. refrigerator not working. running toilet ( fixed myself ) very tired property and laxed mgr.
Good place to just crash if not interested in any luxury.
Broken tv remote. Food left in fridge. Cheap lighting.
