After living in San Clemente for many years, I returned for a visit. I was already familiar with the location of this Holiday Inn. I requested a 3rd floor with balcony and ocean view. I arrived quite late and was pleasantly surprised to find exactly what I had requested as well as a room that was clean and fresh ...... More

Very friendly staff, check in took only 5 minutes. the room was absolutely beautiful with a nice patio overlooking downtown San Clemente and the ocean. the Jacuzzi tub was definitely a plus, and the best part was that it was located in the corner of the room which allowed you to see the view from the tub. The room was... More

Truly enjoyed the experience in a downtown, centrally located hotel. Enjoyed the experience of the pier and the Fisherman's Restaurant. Our breakfast was excellent at the hotel. We cannot say enough about your employees. Our stay was quiet and enjoyable. The only problem we had or could complain about was the darn rain.

My wife and I were visiting the San Diego, CA area. We had booked and had printed tickets to Disneyland prior to leaving our house in Winchester, VA. We were three quarters of the way to Disneyland when we had discovered that we had left the entrance tickets at our home in Virginia. We stopped at the Holiday Inn at... More

We hold all of our Yoga for Surfers events at the Holiday Inn San Clemente, and love the attentive, friendly service we get from Todd and his staff. This is a family-owned hotel right in downtown San Clemente, just minutes from shops, cafes, restaurants and the pier/beach. We could hold our events anywhere in town but we always choose this...

Best thing is location, near freeway but easy walk to town, nice beach views (but not on beach). Get an ocean view. Hotel is a bit rundown. Hot tub broke, tub would not plug, microwave missing turntable, squeaky doors, and first night alarm went off at midnight! Room heater VERY loud. Nice staff tried to apologize but they need better...

I travel a lot for work and spend about 50 nights on the road in some of the nicest hotels you will find. This trip, however, was all about our travel baseball team of a group of 13 year olds and their families. Everyone commented on how nice and comfortable the hotel was. What was really impressive was the service... More

We weren't at the much because we were visiting family but as we were coming and going the staff was very friendly. The room was very clean, nice and spacious, even had a mini fridge and microwave. Room includes breakfast with real scrambled eggs. Great location, great price!

A very clean and nice hotel with a great location. The staff was extremely proficient and kind in helping us in our move. We continually return to the restaurant for the good food and company even after our stay.
