I would recommend staying at the Best Western Hotel for anyone visiting San Juan Capistrano…it is in a good location and the staff are very responsive and helpful. We would probably stay there if we return in the future.

Great hotel, clean, spacious room, beautiful surroundings, great staff, good breakfast. Accessibility to highways and walking distance to down town. I particularly liked the clean and large room we were assigned. We had a great view of the green hills from our room which added to the enjoyment. The city is a historic town with beautiful gardens, pet zoo and...

We stayed here to attend a wedding at the cathedral and found it to be an excellent location to access the mission and the church plus downtown San Juan Capistrano. We enjoyed the outstanding breakfast selections. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. The price is right!

Enjoyed staying a quiet and clean hotel, with easy access to attraction and nice view of mountains from our room. A large and well decorated breakfast room with decent food. Nicely decorated hotel yard with a swimming pool and flower garden.

stayed the night after attending a concert at the Coach House; quiet, clean, comfortable, a break from the world; nice location and nice staff, look forward to our next visit (altho hopefully we won't have to battle for a parking space with so many wedding guests!)

The hotel itself is located near the SJC mission. Rate was fair market value at $100 per night. There was pink mold in the shower (yuck), but in all fairness it is an older hotel, and if you know San Juan at all, well, a little shower mold never killed anyone - at least it wasn't black mold, right? Otherwise,...

Stayed at the BW in San Juan Capistrano on New Year's Eve, I was concerned about the potential for a crazy party night but my fears were groundless. Calm and everything I could have wished for in a peaceful night's sleep. Next morning we had a pleasant New Year's welcome from the breakfast staff. Great staff, great place and very...
