My boyfriend and I stayed in the jacuzzi suite and loved it. We could walk to great restaurants and great shops. The staff were so nice and helpful. Will definitely stay again. We loved sitting on the spacious balcony and could see the ocean and a great restaurant across the street. Loved the architecture of buildings

This property is at Exit 75 directly next to I-5. Rooms facing the freeway I can imagine would be very loud so we requested and were provided a 3rd floor room facing the ocean (15 minutes walk away down Del Mar Ave). The location is great for a daytime or evening stroll down the main streets of San Clemente which...

I'll start with the positives: clean room within walking distance to downtown. HOWEVER, we paid over $200 / night for an "ocean view with a private balcony" and instead - more than half of our balcony was obstructed by a cement wall and where we COULD see out, we were eye-level with a DUMPSTER and the hotel parking lot (the...

My wife and I stayed here for a friends wedding. She arrived before me and found that the room hadn't been fully cleaned. She mentioned this to the front desk who promptly said it would be taken care of and adjusted the daily rate of the room for that night. I spent a majority of my time in the room...

And by all, we mean an awesome jacuzzi bathtub for two and an ocean view balcony; a fridge and flat screen TV - not that we turned it on even once! Mirrors everywhere made it much more fun to watch ourselves in this pet friendly establishment. We look forward to establishing a corporate account with the manager Todd, since everyone...

My boyfriend and I stayed here while visiting a friend in San Clemente over Memorial Day weekend. The outside of the building is quite pretty, in keeping with the Spanish style of San Clemente. The woman at the front desk when we checked in (I wish I could remember her name; she had an accent) was very nice and upgraded...

The hotel itself is your typical Holiday Inn, pretty standard and on the older side. However, this one is located right next to a major freeway. Our room was facing the freeway and was so close that literally people driving on the freeway could probably look into our window and see me standing there. It was extremely noisy even at...

I was put up in this hotel for a work visit to San Clemente. Typically, I will arrive a day early to enjoy being near the beach. Upon research, I found that this hotel was not near the beach and decided not to go early. I was thankful. The hotel is clean, the men working the front desk are friendly...
