I tried to find something wrong with this place. It is fairly small and simple but everything was just right. The guy checking us in was friendly and greeted us warmly. The suite we were given had an ocean view and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast room was a little small, but the property isn't big so most times... More

The rooms are spacious with a separate living and bedroom, but they are dark, dreary and look very dated. The air conditioner sounds like an airplane taking off, so is very annoying. There is a "balcony", but there is not room for a chair or table to sit out and enjoy the traffic going by on I-5. We had reservations... More

The nicest Hampton Inn I have stayed at. Staff are super friendly and thoughtful. It was our 20th wedding anniversary, they brought a bottle of champagne to our room! Room was clean and spacious. Our room did face freeway, was noisy when the sliding door was open, the fresh air was great though. When door was closed freeway noise was... More

Great location, friendly desk staff, desk staff should be a little more knowledgeable about the local area - barber shops and restaurants, breakfast OK, breakfast staff below average, rooms clean and nice, a little expensive, close exit & entrance to the 5 FWY.

If you are staying for a night its fine. The staff is the true standout here. Polite, and pleasant they are a delight. The rooms are fine with comfortable beds. The biggest con here is the noise. We had a suite that faced the highway. You could still hear the sounds of the cars passing by on the freeway. Thankfully... More

I stopped here on my way back from L.A. to break up a long work day and driving. The room they had for me was a corner king room suite on the 3rd floor. But unfortunately it looked right onto the Interstate 5. And I mean right onto it. I'm not a fan of roadside inns at all, because I... More

This hotel is in a great location in San Clemente minutes from downtown. Definitely get a room on the ocean side the sun set view is spectacular . The front desk staff are the best . The comp breakfast was better than most. It is right off Highway 5. Many restaurants in the area within walking distance

Convenient for events, older structure in typical run-down area of town, amazing hotel breakfast, outstanding hotel staff, and the banquet room accommodations are good but became magical due to the bride's decor!
