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

Great stay overall. The customer service by Cameron was amazing. Cameron was very knowlegable about the surrounding area and because of him and my experience this will always be my hotel of choice when traveling.

This was my 4th or 5th stay at Holiday Inn San Clemente. Regardless as to who I speak with, I always seem to get excellent assistance and service. Particular this last time, I stopped in unannounced in search for a weekend room. Although they were booked up except 3 rooms, they offered me a room, filtered through there association discounts...

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

I stayed in late September 2014, the weather was great. The hotel is right by the Freeway to Dan Diego but my room was on the quiet coast facing side. I slept with the window open ( I hate AC noise) and was fine. I had a view of the sea. Some nice restaurants and bars nearby at reasonable prices.... More

I have done a fair amount of travelling both at home and overseas and this hotel has the friendliest Reception staff that I have ever come across. From the minute you stepped into the foyer until departure they were so friendly and helpful. The hotel rooms were above average and probably in need of a little updating but they were... More

This hotel has one of the best service I have received in the US. Great location. Nice room. Super fast and very convenient free WiFi all over the hotel. Great breakfast buffet, very comfortable parking. They let me bring my pet. Couldn't ask for more.

The entire front desk staff was very friendly and helpful! Your elevator was not working properly but it was ok also please it's very disgusting when guest dogs are in the pool! But besides those little mishaps definitely will return with my family. ..

Stayed here because a block of rooms were set aside for a nearby wedding. Read some previous reviews which were not that hopeful. Garish carpeting. We were " upgraded" because of my husband' s premiere status. Our "suite" had the jacuzzi tub right next to the bed with mirrors! We were apparently given a room w/ an ocean view, but... More
