The C-VU Motel was built in the summer of 1953 and has been family owned and operated since. The C-VU Motel is a Classic American Motor Hotel located just along the Original Pacific Coast Highway. Maintaining the retro mid-century feel, staying here is a blast from the past when you spend your nights in one of our uniquely decorated rooms. 

    Nearby are world class surf and beach destinations, Including Trestles, T-street, and the lost winds break. Avoid all the hassles of parking downtown and start your walk along Calafia Beach down to the historic San Clemente Pier where you can gaze into the Pacific Ocean for hours. 

     We cater to just six rooms to ensure that your stay is as comfortable as possible, so don't wait, contact The C-VU Motel to book your vacation stay!
