For the past 3 months, I've practically lived here. The place has everything you need, and the people working here make it even better. It's tough being away from home, but they go out of their way to keep things positive.

This hotel is ok, but the major let down was our bathroom that resembled a public restroom in a park, that was just too bizarre! There was no place to put your toiletries, every time I walked in I felt like some random stranger was about to knock on the door to use the restroom! The location is also pretty... More

We chose this hotel for the out-of-town guests, including us, for our daughter's wedding. We made the right choice! The hotel was clean, comfortable, and convenient, with nice beds and a surprisingly good breakfast bar. (The cinnamon rolls were especially good!) The only thing missing was a hot tub, but given our frenetic schedule, we wouldn't have had time anyway.... More

We booked and prepaid a double queen beds room but received a single king bed room. Edward Seaver at front desk just notified me the double queen room was unavailable without any apology. It was terrible to find a business accepted a contract but failed to execute it accordingly.

The beds are comfy, the staff is nice, and the price is decent but besides that, there's not much else going on. This hotel is good if you plan on being out and about most of your stay in San Clemente because there isn't much to do at the hotel itself; no restaurant, no activities, no bar, very small gym,...

I stayed at this place for work. though it was hard to find but when I called the staff they gave me directions very easily. All the staff members I came across during my whole week were very charming. The gentleman Tesh and the girl Guzzy were always there to assist me. The breakfast hostess were always smiling too. Great... More

Didn't think I was going to like it based on its closeness to the freeway, but I really did. We didn't even hear the noise. Nice seating on the patio. Rooms were very clean with everything we could need. The staff was extremely nice and went out of their way to be helpful. I would not hesitate to return!

Not Fancy but not a dump either. It must have been remodeled recently. Very clean and the Staff was very, very friendly and accommodating. Its next to the freeway but noise was not a problem with the fan on. Breakfast (free) was run of the mill but fresh. The room was a little dark but we did not spend much... More

My entire family stayed here for a wedding over the weekend of November 8th. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Good price for the location. I would stay here again if I needed to stay in San Clemente.
