What a great place to stay in San Clemente. We were lucky enough to stay in room 337 for 4 nights from 4/5 through 4/9. We checked in around 9 pm, as our flight into LAX had landed at 7 pm. The young man who checked us in was very nice and helpful. When we got to our room, I... More

Wonderful place to stay if you want to get away for a couple days. We had a great ocean view with a variety of great restaraunts nearby. Only a short walk from shopping district and other services. Although the carpet was a little dirty and the service was slow, comfy beds and a friendly staff awaited us. Overall, a nice... More

My husband bought a Groupon at the last minute so we could get out of town for a few nights. We had a great stay. Ocean/sunset views, walking distance to shops and restaurants. Quite a pleasant little property. Our only complaint was a dirty hot tub and the pool isn't heated but we weren't there long enough for it to... More

We purchased a Groupon for this hotel and stayed there over Spring Break for 2 nights. The staff was very kind. The room was spacious, and very clean, newly renovated. Bathroom sparkling clean. Great small patio with ocean view (in distance). Great that each room has a nice sized small refrigerator and microwave. Upon checking in, we learned of the... More

Just came back from a 2 night stay booked through a Groupon deal. Stayed in room 303 and when we first walked in room stunk. Opened sliding door and it seemed better after awhile so being that I was with 3 kids who were anxious to go out and explore I did not ask to change room. One of the... More

This Holiday Inn is in a great location, it's not ON the beach, as I pictured, it's a few blocks away but you can see the ocean. We purchased a two night Groupon that came with a jacuzzi suite. First, there is a whirlpool tub (in the middle of the room, it's odd) but its definitely NOT a suite. In... More

Restaurants within walking and so was boutique shopping. Beach was about 3/4 mile down street from all restaurants and shopping. Could walk everywhere. Nice location. Ocen view rooms were nice. I...

Ocean view from the third floor. The room was clean and the staff was very helpful. This hotel is walking distance to many places to eat and to shops. There is a nice refrigerator and a microwave in the room as well as a couch. Ample room! Great place will return again as soon as I possibly can.

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
