“Friendly, Clean, Perfect San Clemente Ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

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 Holiday Inn because we are welcomed like family. Our guests love the clean, fresh modern rooms; they are large, quiet and a perfect place to rest and recharge for all of the fun activities. We have had some of our attendees stay at other locations in town that they booked on their own, but once they saw the location, the amenities and experienced the overall vibe, they wished they had chosen the Holiday Inn. To let you know how much we like it, hubby and I even chose to stay here on our anniversary last year (even though we live only 20 minutes away) because we knew we'd be pampered, and we were right! If you're looking for a great location, very reasonable prices, and a place where the staff bothers to know your name and make sure you feel at home -- all in clean, typical SoCal spanish architecture and style, then look no further! You'll want to come back again and again.

Room Tip: We booked the suite with the jacuzzi! Perfect for an anniversary.

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 maintenance and upgrades. Good breakfast but it's not included. Pool not heated.

Fine if you want to be near town but not the most comfortable.

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 from Todd and the rest of the staff who made you feel like you were staying at a five star resort. We will definitely come back.

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.

The weather has been gorgeous in southern California this fall and my boyfriend and I were hoping to stay somewhere close to the beach and reasonable. We found it at this Holiday Inn. It is walking distance to the Pier and many restaurants and bars. The hotel itself looked remodeled with artsy decor, warm vibrant colors and spacious accommodations. We will gladly return for another visit.

Our Baseball team was playing in a local tournament and we decided as a group to all stay together so the boys could relax and hang out together and swim in between games. Todd the manager at the Holiday Inn was so accommodating! He made sure we were all together on the same floor was great about early check in and even placed our order for pizza! We will definitely stay there again! Thank you Todd for some great memories!
