I live in the mid west and went to visit my son while he was in Marine Combat Training. I stayed here and it was great! Clean rooms, amazingly helpful staff, great breakfast/coffee! And only 3 short exits from Camp Pendleton. I highly reccommend!

The weekend (October 12-14) could not have been better. Neel, Hiren, Guza, and Eddie were helpful and cooperative beyond words; "our slightest wish was their command!" The accommodations were superb--extremely clean and comfortable--and their ballroom/meeting rooms were exactly what we needed. I give this hotel an A++ in the way they welcomed us and accommodated our annual Fall Gathering

I have stayed at the hotel numerous times in the past year. The staff is always professional and friendly. Rooms are neat and clean. I am greeted by name which is a nice touch and I don't feel like a number. The breakfast is good with a wide variety of selections and the attendant never fails to ask if I... More

Love the location and hotel is in sweet spot for San Clemente! The staff is polite, smiles and very helpful. Guzy at the front desk make a point on asking about room and service. We are booking here again in December. Great for kids also. Alan from Mill Valley

The staff was professional, very helpful and extremely nice. The front desk clerk remembered we were there for a family affair and asked each time we saw her how we were enjoying our family get-together. She also always asked if there was anything we needed. The other clerks were just as nice, and the maid was very nice.
