Alma is the best!!! She is a wonderful cook too!!! This place is exactly what the doctor ordered!!! Even though it wasn't too far from home, it felt like we hundreds of miles away. The town is beautiful and the location is perfect! Close to EVERYTHING!!! Chris and Kate

What a surprise--a bed and breakfast with 5 star award winning food, an open door for our dog, and a host that went out of her way to make us at home, with a personalized birthday card and chocolate dipped strawberries for my special 60th birthday! Freda watched our dog while we spent the day on the beach, and we...

We stayed here for our Anniversary weekend. We stayed 2 nights and paid $438. It was not worth it. The room was very tiny as well as the bathroom. The bed was not as nice as my bed at home. The 4 block walk to the beach wasn't bad. But the flight of stairs you have to walk to get...

Freda's Inn is a dreamy getaway in the heart of a "Spanish Village by the Sea". Traveling alone, I seek out a safe and peaceful environment and the Always Inn more than satisfied those needs. Parking was right outside the private patio entrance to my room. I enjoyed a private bath and an in-room refrigerator. The Inn is a block...

My boyfriend and I wanted an overnight trip and we chose San Clemente. Not sure where to stay, we looked on trip advisor and Always Inn was ranked as the number one B&B...now I know why! From the moment we arrived we were welcomed with open arms and the hosts were lovely and gracious people. The house is adorable and...

The Always Inn B&B was a great place to spend my wife and my mini-honeymoon! Our room was cozy and comfortable! We're not big on fancy hotels, so this was right up our alley! Felt like a home away from home. Quiet and nice and down to earth. Cyndalina the innkeeper was warm and friendly and cooked a great breakfast!...

My husband surprised me with a 1-night getaway at the Always Inn B&B in San Clemente. We were greeted at the door by Freda (the owner) and her dog Indy 500. She showed us our quaint little room just off the main living room. Although the room wasn't big, it was very charming. My husband asked Freda to make a...

Stellar location. Welcoming hosts. Great shower. Fantastic breakfast. We loved the mints and taffy out for the guests, and Cindelina even sent us home with some bath salts after my boyfriend said how much he enjoyed them! The only negative is the thin walls!

My sister was in town, and we needed to get out of LA for the weekend. We wanted to go south toward San DIego...we found this great little B&B in San Clemente called the Always Inn.

I really enjoyed my stay. Everyone made me feel right at home. The breakfast was also great. I look forward to staying next time I visit San Clemente. The beds were very comfortable. I would like to see them get fluffier pillows.
