We had a very good stay at this hotel. Staff were friendly and accommodating,the location is great (close to beach). Ocean view was beautiful. Rooms are very basic and need upgrading but clean. There is a road between hotel and beach and a commuter train goes by but it was not too bothersome and is quiet at night.

We stayed in a two bedroom suite Oct 15th. We did not have a reservation but stopped in and got the last room they had. It was a short walk from the office but a great view of the beach. Staff was very friendly and made sure we were happy with everything. They had a number of beach chairs and... More

The bargain rates are for the ground floor rooms which offer very little privacy. Expect to pay a pretty penny if you want an upper floor room with a view. Rooms were clean and there is a large kitchen. They "coiunt" the futon in the living room as a bed and we did not need it but I would not... More

Hotel is on a great location close to the san clemente pier and the dog friendly coastal trail. We enjoyed being walking distance to restaurants, casa romantica, downtown shopping. I liked that they allow you to borrow beach chairs and beach towels. There were somethings that really bothered me during our stay. 1) I found a big cockroach in the... More

I write this review with mixed emotions from our stay at the Sea Horse. The location is absolutely fantastic. When I say you are near the beach, take it literally. We stayed in Villa #3 and were less than 60 seconds walk to the pier and beach. I didn't wear shoes for 4 days. It was fantastic. We sat on... More

Front desk lady was very nice and helpful, even calling us be before we got there to check on our trip. We were helped with directions, umbrellas for the beach and room services were perfect. We could see the ocean from our balcony. Loved our stay! Everything was perfect!

San Clemente is one of my favorite places to visit. The Seahorse makes it home. We have stayed many times, and Andy and his crew always make us feel like friends. Comfortable rooms, clean, and a great location.

Big splurge......$245. That's a lot for two senior travelers. But what the heck, it's a resort, not really. The positive......our room, #6, had a patio overlooking the pier, the ocean, the train tracks (to be fair, if you want to see the ocean you have to see the trains). A wonderful lounge area also overlooked the coast. The negatives....there are... More

Lovely, clean, boutique type hotel - like a small apartment; directly across from the pier. We could see surfers all day from our balcony. Great little crepe restaurant below (for breakfast), walking trail across the street, along the beach. There are train tracks across the street that you could hear occasionally, but didn't bother us. Awesome view of the ocean... More
