“A pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

The staff was professional, very helpful and extremely nice. The front desk clerk remembered we were there for a family affair and asked each time we saw her how we were enjoying our family get-together. She also always asked if there was anything we needed. The other clerks were just as nice, and the maid was very nice.

Room Tip: I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to tha San Clemente area.

Stayed here a couple of times. No frills, but clean, comfortable and a good experience.
The breakfast is "ok', but don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.
Definitely be happy to stay here again.

I was in San Clemente for a wedding and stayed at this hotel for a week. I really didn't want to leave. The hotel was comfortable, the location was great and the staff were very courteous and helpful. I loved being able to go out and run each morning and get to the beach within 10-15 mins.
There was a good breakfast buffet each morning.
The only criticism I would make is that the lighting in the room could have been better. I don't like the energy saving bulbs that have to be used in CA now and the bulbs could have been a little brighter.
I will stay here again next time I am in San Clemente.
The front desk staff Hiren, Guzy and Shivpal were EXCELLENT and extremely helpful when needed.

Room Tip: I was on the lower floor at the back of the hotel. The noise from the freeway could be heard but the...
