Little Inn by the Beach, San Clemente
Don't judge a book by its stars!
I enjoy staying at the Little Inn. The place is always quiet and I feel I can relax. It's not some fancy hotel but it has what you need and doesn't seem like a hotel of only 2 stars. We need to get away from luxury so much - esp for one night. Focus on function. This is the first hotel where I take a shower or bath and the water is consistently warm. There is a fridge and microwave, which is amazing because there is tons of food and drinks in the area. The service is always great and they are quick to respond to your needs.

Small beach hotel
Check in went well. They are very friendly and accommodating. However, the full ocean view is off the 3rd floor and overlooking a busy freeway! Not much of a view. The parking is tight. Small spaces. If you get a good parking space, go for Uber and keep your car there. No breakfast provided and although the room was clean, the bed was uncomfortable. All in all, it was an okay place for the beach.

The location is not ‘by the beach’ as advertised. It is right next to a busy freeway with all its noise. Room was not detailed after last guest.

The room was clean and overall worth the money only complaint is the WiFi wasn’t very good unless you were outside or on the balcony
