The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was so nice to walk into a clean hotel room! This is #1 for me. The beds were very comfortable. Close to freeway access. Although we didn't make it to the beach, it is very close. Would definitely recommend!

Nice three day stay. Friendly helpful staff and nice, comfortable and clean accommodations. Good beds and quiet even though it is close to the freeway. Everything one would expect from an express hotel - no nonsense, user friendly, well kept & efficiently run. It is tricky to find so you will want to map quest or use google maps, especially...

The hotel was a very pleasant place to call, we did not get to actually stay but, our experience over the telefeno. The night manager Edday was very accommodating. We called a couple times to find a room available also to get directions to the hotel. He was very patient and understanding of our lack of knowledge of the area.... More

Had a deal from Amazon Local, saw the price and decided to spend a few days here. Everyone so nice, everything squeaky clean. Close to so many things to do within not many miles either way, a good getaway for us desert dwellers!

I came across a Groupon for this hotel making my last minute booking quite affordable! Having previously attended a family reunion in San Clemente I was able to confirm with a brother who... More

Our staff from San Diego stayed here to a four day workshop academy with our Orange County office. We made reservations with Sarah Edwards and everything went well. The hotel has easy access to the freeway.
