We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express twice in April 2013 and Sept 2013. The property was clean and organized and had very comfortable rooms. The staff was exceptional, especially Guzy Johnson. She was very helpful with directions and where to go to see the sights and lots of shopping centers and restuarants.What a pleasant experience!!!! The cleaning staff and... More

It's your very basic hotel - NOTHING fancy. We picked because we read dmalzahn's review that it has oceans views. WRONG....our "upgraded" room had a view of the freeway and the back entrance of the 99 Cent Store. LOTS of freeway noise and NO VIEW. The Hotel is approx a mile (maybe 2) from the Beach; NOT walkable for families... More

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay at the Holiday Inn Express San Clemente. I do apologize that a previous guests remarks led you to believe we have ocean views. Although the ocean can be seen from some of our rooms we never try to advertise as such because we are a little over 1 mile from the... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights while our house was being tented. It's in our home town of San Clemente, so I was very familiar with the location. We really liked this hotel-the price is good, and the location is close to the beach. For visitors, there is easy freeway access to other cities like San Diego and... More

Stayed here for four nights and enjoyed every moment. If you want somewhere that the staff are very friendly and happy to see you but understand how you feel after an eleven hour flight and just over an hours drive to get there, this is your place. The hotel is five minutes off the I-5, so very easy to find,... More

This hotel is the best value and nicest in all of SoCal! The professionalism and friendliness of the hotel staff was outstanding. The breakfast buffett is top-notch. The only downsisde is that the pool is hidden under shade most of the day, and it is a bit tricky to get to the hotel. Pay attnetion to what others reviewers have... More

We stayed here with our softball team because a lot of the players were here. A little pricey, but they give you a good bang for your buck. The rooms are roomy, clean, and come with a refrigerator, microwave, and small balcony. The TV was probably a 32", and had good reception (but limited channels). Roomy desk and good internet...

We only stayed here one night after a long day at legoland but it was a great stay. Beds were sooooo comfy! Blackout blinds meant we all got a very restful sleep and no early wake ups from the kids! Complimentary Breakfast was great. So much choice, including pancakes, bacon and eggs. Our morning was idyllic with the pool to... More

This is a fantastic little gem of a hotel, a solid 3-star + experience. I was scouting out hotels for my group travel company, and I would definitely recommend it for individuals or groups. There's a nice pool, indoor facilities for a large event with circular tables, etc. The rooms and beds are comfortable, there's a free breakfast (they do... More
