My wife and I used this hotel for our wedding hotel. The hotel has just 72 rooms and they were very accommodating to us and our guest who took up almost the whole hotel. The location is great; as there is everything within walking distance for your guest to make a weekend of it. The hotel staff was great and... More

Love this hotel although not on the water some rooms do have an ocean view. It is located within walkng distance to great restaurants and shops on Main Street if you are up for a one mile walk you can go to the pier . The restaurant The Fisherman on the pier is a great place for seafood. Directly across... More

This is one of the nicer Holiday Inn's. The location is very close to the freeway, but I didn't hear any noise in the room. If you are wanting to hit Disneyland, KNOTTS, Legoland, SeaWorld, any Orange County attraction - this location will shave off major time from freeway drive time. The staff is nice and accommodating, the lobby is... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. So much, that we stayed an extra day. A short 5 min drive to San Clemente Pier. Freeway friendly. You can walk to eat just about anything that suits you. Gavin, at the front desk was friendly and helpful. Parking is easy. Also, my stay was just before Thanksgiving and this hotel... More

The staff was friendly and we didn't have any problems. They have parking at the entrance as well as in a garage below the hotel, which has a convenient elevator that goes to all floors. The rooms are nice and the beds were comfortable. There are even pillows labeled "hard" and "soft"! I needed to print my boarding pass, and... More

Thankfully, I only stayed here one night. The hotel itself is nice enough and it is in a good location to accessing San Clemente, but it is right next to I5 and there has been little to nothing done during construction to address that fact. The rooms are nice and spacious and the front desk staff is okay, but maybe... More

Excellent staff friendly and welcoming. Felt at home and would love to come back if I was ever in the area. Clean and spacious room! Free bottle waters, has microwave and fridge, plenty of towels. Not a stingy hotel!
