We always love coming to SC and staying here. The staff is so friendly and very helpful. We ate at the restaurant every morning we were there for their awesome breakfast deal and even came back for their taco tuesday. The hotel is nice and clean and it's walking distance to beach, restaurants and shops. I love this place!

My wife and I recently stayed for a few nights for my birthday weekend. The staff was very helpful, room was nice with a great ocean view. The restaurant had great food and was reasonably priced. Definately coming back.

My wife and I stay here every year during the surf competition in Sep. We always have agreat time and this year was no different. The hotel sits right across the street from Downtown San Clemente, they have excellent food in the restaurant and an attentive staff to go with it.

To summarize, "EXCELLENT" From the Front Desk Check In and Out, the great On Site Management and Staff, to comfortable rooms and a location that affords walking access to all San Clemente has to offer, this Hotel will please. Always my "To stay" location when in town

Great weekend at the Holiday Inn. Last minute decision to escape inland heat wave and we were lucky to find a great room in San Clemente. The room was large and looked like it had recently been redecorated. We lucked out when the manager upgraded our room and gave us an ocean view room. The staff was very helpful and... More

The waiter at breakfast was the best. he was friendly, helpful and knew what was going on! The manager also helpful and made us feel welcome. We got there in the evening and front desk staff didn't give us much info about the facilities - or our breakfast voucher (our breakfast was included) so there was confusion in the morning,... More

Constant companion and I spent several days here recently and found it to be an excellent 2 star property. We had a king jacuzzi suite which was clean and comfortable as was the rest of the hotel. The amenities that we expect in 3 star and above properties; valet parking, large, comfortable, well appointed lobby and common areas, etc are... More

Staff was excellent, the rooms were perfect for us and the restuarant was splendid! I highly recomend this place to families and business people alike! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here and will definitely be back! p.s. make sure you ask about the free rentals for beach stuff & the weekday breakfast special! Those are key! -Greg

Our visit got off on the wrong foot when we couldn't have a regular place to park in the a basement parking area because the owner stores 10+ cars there. Unable to access the internet the first night didnt help either. Reported the toilet in my room was running and they offered to fix it. Next night it was worse,... More

Sorry were stay at our property was not as good as for most of our Guest, as we can see on tripadvisor. As we are in a full service hotel, we don't allow ourselves to serve a preheated breakfast, however $2.95 for 2 strip of bacon or 2 sausage, 2 eggs, potatoes, toast and coffee is a pretty fair deal,...
