We loved the time we spent at the HIE in San Clemente; so much, in fact, that we extended our stay an extra night. Eddy, the desk man at night, worked diligently to assure that our needs were met . The only downside was that we were visiting L.A. and the drive was too far for our liking.

Having worked as a customer service consultant for Intercontinental Hotels Group, I often trained hotel staff on proper customer service. Allan, Tesh, Victor, Guzy, and Stephanie could easily have taught those classes for me. They were bulletproof. - Allan was the epitome of friendly, capable and on point. - Tesh was approachable and concerned not just about my stay, but... More

I booked my room through a groupon offer. Victor gave me directions over the phone and checked us in. He was courteous and filled us in on the hotels free breakfast. His friendly attitude made us feel welcomed. The room was spotless and welcoming. The morning breakfast was hot and had a few choices. The cinnamon rolls are outstanding. Not... More

I would definitely stay here again! Clean modern rooms, pet friendly, breakfast buffet included. This hotel is located about a mile from San Clemente Pier just taking a few minutes by car. There is an outdoor heated pool in the courtyard, which is a decent size for swimming but the walkway around the pool is a bit narrow, however they've... More

I can't say enough good about this place. I've spent over a month here with another few weeks to go, and I have to be honest that I'll miss it when I leave. The staff is awesome - Allan, Tesh, & Guzy treat the guests so well. They're great people, extremely helpful, and always open to chat. They've got great... More

I've stayed at this hotel a lot recently due to frequent travel to the area for work and I can honestly say, I've never stayed at a nicer hotel and that's mostly due to the people who work here. The hotel is very clean and very nice (which is great) but the people who run the desk (Allen, Tesh, Victor,... More

I enjoyed my stay here at the Holiday Inn Express. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very attentive. The only downside was the 25.00 fee to check in early when I couldn't return to check in until having moved my son in the early evening and really didn't care to haul luggage after having moved all day....

The hotel is nice and clean, rooms are up to date and clean. Location is terrible, you have to drive behind a shopping center and up a private hill to get to the hotel. Freeway noise is noticeable. Tried to give us a room next to the elevators and housecleaning/laundry room. Had other customers walk into our room while we're... More

It is unacceptalbe for our team to disrupt your stay while doing thier maintenance and cleaning... More

My wife and I came here to see my son who is stationed at Camp Pendleton and my daughter who lives in Southern Calif. The hotel is one of the best kept, clean hotels I have been in years. The room was spotless and everyone is very friendly. The beds are comfortable. The front desk staff are great and extremely... More
