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!

I didn't realize Holiday Inn's got so nice! We got upgraded a 2 bedroom suite that was gigantic and had two mini fridges, a microwave, a wet bar, and tons of space! The A/C was ice cold, the TV had full cable and all of the premiums, and the hotel was super clean and felt and looked very new in... More

This hotel has great customer service! I've stayed here twice this year and both times the staff was awesome. The rooms are clean, decent size, equipped with fridges and microwaves and the beds are comfy. The hotel is walking distance to a variety of restaurants and bars. My only complaint is the parking, especially when the hotel is sold out.... More

I've stayed at this hotel twice in the last couple of years. The location is fantastic, short walk down Del Mar to the Pier. You can enjoy restaurants close by. Everything is centrally located to this hotel. The beds are comfy, the room is spacious and clean...but.... upon entering the room this second time, I noticed an abundance of air... More
