“I'll be back!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2010

wonderful staff, wonderful location, wonderful service, wwwonnndddeeerrrfffuuull stay. It's not very often you get it all in one package. My family and I were very impressed with everything especially the wonderful staff. We were greeted with such pleasant attitudes and was mostly impressed by the managers wonderful spirits and professional character. All this sure made up for the uncertainty of this hotel being so close to the freeway. We are very glad we stayed there and defenitely will be back.

Keep up whatever you are doing. It is great work. Thank you!!!

I knew we were going to have a great relaxing vacation as soon as we walked in the lobby. Everyone was so friendly. We were sincerly greeted by every staff member we encountered. Their statements always included, "If there anything you need, let us know."
The weather was great so we walked almost everywhere.
We ate at many eateries that were within walking distance of the hotel but we enjoyed room service and the hotel restaurant.
There was an in-room whirl pool tub that was truly relaxing before bedtime. The bed was so comfortable that we slept late every morning and had breakfast on the balcony looking at the Pacific Ocean.
We are looking forward to returning again and again.

I was so impressed with this hotel and would highly reccommend it to anybody for business or leisure. The management is terrific and extremely accomodating, rooms were serviced to my satisfaction every morning, and so many restaurants and shopping within walking distance in the quaint city of San Clemente. And if you like the beach you can walk there too.

My husband & I stayed at this hotel for our anniversary in March. Service was great and the hotel was close to the pier and all things shopping. Will definitely come here again!

The location of our hotel, in the lovely downtown San Clemente, so close to the pier, is absolutely the perfect combination for a romantic getaway.

My family (wife, daughter, and me) went to the Holiday Inn in San Clemente and had a wonderful time over our anniversary weekend. It is located one block away from Del Mar street, which made it perfectly located to walk to the Arts & Crafts fair that happened to be going on that weekend. Additionally, it's just under a mile to walk to the beach, which is a great stroll during sundown. Lastly, I cannot comment enough on the hospitality of the staff at this Holiday Inn location. They were wonderful and extremely accommodating. Thank you Holiday Inn San Clemente for making my family feel welcome and adding to the great anniversary that my wife and I were able to have with our daughter.

Extremely pleasant staff. We had an issue with our room and it was quickly taken care of. The central location to downtown San Clemente is awesome. They are pet-friendly. We had our dog with us, Elvis, who is a 4-pound Yorkshire Terrier. He was a hit, and everybody loved him, including the hotel staff. The food in the restaurant (breakfast) was superb. Katie was super at the front desk. If you are looking for a very nice place in a great location, stay here. Pick the ocean-side for less freeway noise as this site is right next to the 5 freeway.

Have stayed twice (June 2007 and July 2010). Both good experiences. If you choose this hotel I recommend requesting a room on the ocean side. This reduces freeway noise. Easy walking distance to food, shopping, etc. Nice beach short distance away. Rooms are average and clean. Location is ideal for beach, LA and San Diego day trips.

I am glad to read that all your stay here since 2007 have been good experience.
As you mentioned our central location beetween San Diego and Los Angeles and our beach city downtown makes San Clemente a great place to be.
