“Clean, Quiet, and Comfortable”
Reviewed 22 August 2013

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel many times (formerly called Budget Lodge) with our grandkids mostly because of the affordable rates BUT I must say this hotel has only gotten BETTER. The Host, who has always been very helpful, put us in a quiet room away from the street noise. The room was sparkling clean every time we returned from the beach, with fresh new towels and sparkling clean sinks and toilets. We slept like babies. We woke up and walked across the street to "Pipes" for an incredible breakfast. The hotel is located next to so many places to eat within walking distance. My husband even went to the bar next door to watch the game and have a beer to shoot the breeze with the locals. I difenately recomment this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in San Clamente. I have nothing but good things to say about it.

After this trip, I've learned not to depend on others opinions about hotels. This was a nice and quaint place to stay, the exterior was clean, the parking was acceptable and it's close to many local dining establishments and local surf shops. The manager was very hospitable, polite and concise, I like that! The room was comfortable and clean, all we could ask for! This property is a few blocks from the OC Tavern and across the street from a great breakfast joint, shoes and shirt optional.

Last second booking and it was basic hotel but clean and NO BED BUGS this is the most important in a hotel .The bathroom was weird with no showers, because the Jacuzzi was outside the bathroom next to the bed. The parking is limited and very compact. The bed little hard and tv was outdated but overall it was average to great . Close to two great restaurant yards away . Will recommend and will stay again . I do recommend" the grill surfing donuts in San Clemente .

For the money its an excellent place for a nights sleep. Manager Henry is great. Close to the main street and freeway. OC Tavern about a block away. 2 good restaurants within. 100 yards. Some freeway noise. But bang for your buck in South San Clemente you can't beat this Budget Clean and functional. Small fridge and microwave.

This is your basic, no frills hotel. If you just need a place to sleep for the night, this will do.

CONS - Office manager was crabby and the TV was a tri-color unit (the screen had 3 tints of color on it) from 1987 but does have HBO!

PROS- The Wi-Fi worked really well which was a nice surprise. We watched Netflix instead of TV with no issues. Clean room too.

The property manager was extremely rude, The staff was noisy and then they had the gall to complian how i closed my door.(which was accidental). The manager smoked in the hallway and it reeked. I work nights and the manager complained because I was sleeping during the day and didn't answer the door when the maids came (I did not hear them) and there was no "do not disturb" sign provided. The air conditioning sucked and the road noise is terrible. The price was very high also.

The good news is there are good restaurants and bars surrounding.

Room Tip: ask for the west side

I would stay here again if I wanted a place to crash and that was it. The location was ok because there's a really great Mexican restaurant - El Mariachi, across the street as well as a walk's distance to shops and other eateries.

The room wasn't too bad. It was actually in a lot better than the Best Western Casablanca room I stayed in the weekend before. The hotel was close to an apartment/residential area which made it seem a little "rough". I've been frequenting SC every weekend and I'm bound determined to stay at an affordable hotel that isn't run down and that is located in a decent area/vicinity to everything else.

I'm writing this a week later and for $10 more I found a hotel that was a little farther from the main SC area, but the room was MUCH nicer and it included a full, HOT breakfast buffet in the morning. Worth doing your research and seeing if you can find something else.

The staff wasn't bad at all. This seems like a mom and pops operation and it's not their fault that the hotel doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the bigger chains. The internet was free so that was a plus. For the price it isn't bad. Like I said for $10 I was able to feed 3 people a hot breakfast the next day that included an updated room.

Do your research! If this ends up being the cheapest stay it really isn't that bad though!

Room Tip: Use your check in slip across the street at the Mexican Restaurant to receive 15% off! Be careful...
