Capistrano Surfside Inn is a great place to relax: besides its great location by the beach, the entire staff is a happy, helpful group to be around with. The location is convenient - close to a major freeway, several grocery stores around the area, and a major outlet store is nearby for shoppers who love the outlet malls (like me).

We have owned two weeks for several years and always visit in December/January and February. It is an older property, but immaculate and the 37 units have a "feel" like a bed and breakfast. The staff is the best, and it is right across from Doheny Beach so you can hear the surf and enjoy the ocean from your room....

We visited end of November. The weather was wonderful!! I requested a room we were familiar with, and found it had not been updated, but that was not a problem. We were shown the updated rooms and they are very nice. Next time. I chose our room as it was close to the elevator. There were a few quirks but...

A few years ago, due to fog on a New Years eve in Medford, OR. we time banked a timeshare week at Solana Beach to Trading Places and forgot about it.

The location and the comfort of the Surfside Inn would be hard to match when visiting seaside California. Our one bedroom unit was clean and inviting. It was more than adequate for a lovely fall week at the beach. The oversize jacuzzi tub in our bathroom was a surprise, but perhaps Boomer-age surfer guests who desire a soak use theirs....

The Capistrano Surfside Inn is a comfortable pleasant place to stay in an excellent location. Half the units are Oceanside with an awesome view of the ocean – and one just walks across the road to the beach!
