We drove over from Yuma, Az, for a two night stay. Liked it so much, we stayed a 3rd night... which on Valentine's day weekend was a stretch. The Hotel worked with us on that request, and the 3rd day was just great. The hotel staff was friendly, the room and amenities were good and worked well, and the location... More

We just returned home from an overnight stay in San Clemente and the Holiday Inn. We had booked a King/View room and...generally speaking, we were very pleased with our room. It featured a flat screen TV, a comfortable king-sized bed, a sofa, mini-fridge, micro and a balcony. They offer free underground parking. Check-in was quick and trouble-free. The front desk...

The reservation was made from the Holiday Inn Site and when I reached the property it was not exactly what I was promised or had in mind. The Night Manager "Edgar Aguilar" went WAY out of his way to fix the reservation and make me and my family comfortable. I was so impressed with the way this Hotel was managed... More

This is a very nice, clean hotel in San Clemente with friendly staff. The room I was in was large and spacious with comfortable beds, sofa, refrigerator, and microwave and nice furniture. Book the ocean view room with balcony that overlooks downtown San Clemente, the ocean, and for the amazing sunsets. The hotel is within walking distance of restaurants, shops... More

Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our stay at the hotel was a last minute decision, luckily the well trained and friendly staff (Katie!) was above and beyond in accommodating our request. The room was spacious, clean and SO QUIET (for being butted up to the interstate!). The life of the city is across the street, making for a... More

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
