Beachcomber Inn

The Beachcomber Inn is a quaint boutique style inn situated steps from the Pacific Ocean. The inn was constructed in 1947 and offers vintage at its finest. The Beachcomber is believed to be the oldest continuously running businesses in town, and it is one of the few examples of Spanish Colonial Revival style inns located on a coastal bluff. The blissfully secluded Beachcomber provides the perfect window through which to experience the California lifestyle. This inn, due to the properties' unique position, offers unparalleled views of the waters below. Enjoy surf, sand and sun along with the unobtrusive charm of this inn. Spend the day on the waves, shopping on Del Mar, enjoying free WiFi or dining at a local non-chain eatery. You'll be sure to fill your day with fun or relaxing moments. Just 30 minutes from John Wayne Airport and minutes from the Amtrak train stop, the inn offers oceanfront lodging, complete with individual patios overlooking the beauty of the San Clemente Pier which creates the quintessentially relaxing hideaway. Rooms are also appointed with a fully equipped kitchen, king bed and sofa bed. The grounds allow for a peaceful night by the fire enjoying unobstructed views as the sunset casts a burnt-orange tint over the glistening surf.

Been hoping to book a room here for months. Thankfully someone canceled and we snapped it up. Everything about this place is special and can’t wait to return. We were placed in the Southern Rooms and the views and sounds from the waves crashing literally make you feel soooo rela

The location is amazing - I used to live near here BUT...back in UK I wanted to visit and asked for information on 2019 pricing and booking. Their first response was brief and gave me a price which was either an 18% increase on 2018 or a 49% increase! I asked for clarification, b

This small inn, actually an old motel from probably the 1940's, is on a bluff overlooking the beach and San Clemente Pier. A marvelous view from every the front porch of every room. The noise of the waves landing on the beach are about all you hear. The trains going by are sur

If you’re looking for the perfect location to get away from it all, this is it!
Beachcomber is as close as you can get to the sand & ocean. It’s at the bend in the road where locals live, so it’s private & city central at the same time.
There’s a small parking lot for renters o

Hi, any north rooms available for a single traveler for a week in Jan. or Feb.? If not, shorter periods....?
We have rented for 1-3 days at a time. Pretty sure he rents weekly, but you need to reserve soon as the fill up quickly. There are only like 10-14 cottages if I recall. They all face west. All have a great ocean and pier view.

"North rooms have less grass area in front and the road behind, so maybe noiser, but perhaps a better overall view."
"All rooms seemed wonderful. My aunt had a walker-south side had fewer steps and easier acces though not fully accessible."
"All rooms are great and all have tiny bathroom issue."
"all rooms have a view....you can't go wrong!"
"No bad rooms."
