This is my 2nd stay at the San Clemente Inn in 2 years. I love this little gem. The property is older, not pretentious, homey, and very well loved by the management team. It has gone through a major renovation of most of the guest suites. The remaining ones will be completed sometime in early 2013. The suites (all suite Timeshare Property) are beautifully renovated with modern, stylish inviting furnishings. Very clean and well maintained. New appliances in the kitchens, new tile, carpet, furniture etc. I have stayed in the studio and one bedroom suites and loved them both.
The staff I have found always to be friendly, accomodating to the best of their abilities. I don't know why anyone would have complaints about the staff. Being a Timeshare, things do run a bit differently than a regular hotel. Maybe guests who don't understand this may have different expectations. They don't try and sell you anything--so no worries about being pressured to buy a timeshare.
The pool, grounds, and housekeeping is excellent. Maticulously maintained and attention to detail is evident. Very peaceful and relaxing grounds. The property sits next to a state park. The buildings are in 2 rows. The row closest to the park have the nicest view. The 2nd row building looks at the back of the other building and has less privacy with no view. However, all rooms have huge balconies and get lots of sun. Only the north wing top floor units have a distant water view. I wouldn't let a view be a deal breaker for staying at this property.
The location to downtown San Clemente is great. E Z access to the 5 freeway and halfway between LA and San Diego. Beach close. Short drive to restaurants, groceries, etc.
If you want a Ritz Carlton experience, this is not the place for you. If you want great value, nice staff, clean modern inviting suites in a great location---you can't go wrong with the San Clemente Inn.
