The choices were so limited for San Clemente. Lobby and elevators were dismal. Room was clean. This was a utility hotel. Nothing at all to compliment... Sorry. Room overlooked the 5 but thankfully road noise was minimal. I would not stay here again. Good location though...

Don't let the title steer you away,as the walk to the beach is only about 3/4 of a mile. You will be a little disappointed with an Ocean Front view, but as the hotel is next to the highway, it would be quieter to have that view. The hotel is like any modern Holiday Inn, and the room was nice.... More

My wife and I stayed here for the 4th of July and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. We stayed in the room with the Jacuzzi on the third floor and it had everything you could ask for in a hotel room. The room was clean and very spacious and all the staff were very generous. Also, the location... More

Good for the money, Excellent location and parking. Staff was very friendly and helpful. A decent place to hang your hat for a couple of days. I would recommend this hotel and would certainly not mind staying there at another visit.

Great location close to beach and great restaurants! Just stayed overnight and saw many guests with their fury babies and made me miss mine. There are conference rooms available if you need those a meeting. You can request a room with a view and jacuzzi too!

Our room was surprisingly big. The queen was in the bedroom and the 2nd queen was in a separate room - great for kids. Healthy walk to the beach. Only drawback were some major partiers hangin out - it was a holiday weekend. And oth, the pain on the halls is so bizarre. The rest is nice but the paint... More

The hotel is located just off # 5 and it's very easy to find . The staffs are very helpful and nice. Great view on the ocean and within short walking distance from town center. As always in holiday inn rooms are great and the bed is the best.

We have stayed at this hotel many times over the past few years. Every 3 months we drive or fly down from Canada to see my husband's 97 year old Godmother who lives alone and we worry about. This time we booked with breakfast included and were completely delighted with our daily interactions with Iraj who is not only the... More

Stayed here for two nights as we met up with our Marine for the weekend. We had a room with two Queen size beds and it also had a pull out couch. It was a big room and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was large and the entire place was clean and very nice looking. The location of... More
