“Great Value!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

We were lucky enough to have found this Hotel. Making a road trip up the California coast we booked in advance as a 'place to crash off the highway', we paid no more than $65.00 (low season) for the night and were pleasantly surprised.
We arrived at around 1am and the receptionist was very helpful, the only issue we encountered was actually getting a room.First we were sent to a room that already had guests in it, then another room who's door was jammed then finally our room. It was all good though, they gave us a late check-out (1:30pm) which gave us enough time t check out the beach and its surroundings.
The rooms were very clean, and the bed was extremely comfortable! You obviously are not walking into a 4 star hotel, there are wears and tears and it's a nit outdated, but for what you are paying the value was excellent. Plenty of space, even a little balcony.
A nice inclusive breakfast was served in the morning. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
A plus: Free parking!
If we're ever in the area again we'd def stay there!

I used this hotel found through Hotels.com as a stopping point for a Lyoness business event in Carlsbad. What a find; upon check in, Cameron hooked me up with a quiet, clean and comfy room. The room had good wifi for biz, and plenty of room to spread out. My stay also included a hot breakfast, and I can't remember the guys name, but he took complete ownership of the the breakfast layout, which was great to have included in the room price! Also, the hotel offers a heated pool and jacuzzi, which I took total advantage of after a long drive - refreshing. Finally, the location is perfect. The hotel's at the south end of town right across the street from the Rip Curl Store - had to pick up a token surf t-shirt. ;-) I only use Hotels.com now for my travel as it graciously uses the worlds larges Global Rewards Card - LYONESS, which pays me to travel and shop! Fee free to contact me, so you can get paid to travel too.

Room Tip: I liked 3rd floor facing east.

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night after going to a party on (very) nearby Camp Pendleton. It made for a perfect launch pad into he following day of cruising around San Clemente. Check-in was fairly uneventful. The room was very clean. Continental breakfast is provided from 7-10 AM.

Room Tip: This is a fairly small property on the east side of 5 freeway. So, rooms on the east side may be qu...

Really clean rooms, great customer service from front desk and housekeeping. Breakfast was really good. Really good location close to the beach and just 3 miles all the restaurants. Just one more thing the rooms are really nice needs a little updating.

My initial impression of the hotel was i was getting my money worth and exceeded my expectations,the staff was warm and welcoming,rooms were spacious and comfortable and all this at an affordable price considering the location of the hotel in the heart of the Spanish city,just a minutes walking distance from the beach front. Definitely a place to recommend and go back to again........

This really stands the meaning of comfort in comfort suites. The service is excellent and quicker response with taken care and attention. One time when we got down from airport looking for a hotel, we found this a best rating, so we called them for a route how to reach hotel? They guided the route with good service and they are considerable looking. They provided the hot coffee and fresh break fast with including everything in the room fare. The breakfast really tastes nice. They have a good and safe alarmed parking lot with no worries. The location is really nice and great interesting place which is nearer to state beach, freeway, and airport. I personally booked for this inn for 3 times as I used to travel frequently in a month. I hope you can get the same offerings.
I have to say one interesting thing is about the manager David, which I met him on next day morning, really a good guy with down to earth behavior and good favor guy and helped a lot for to visit nearest places as a guide. He had done a personal help too taking me to Enterprise rental service to rent a car. Everything is good with no issues and worries........See you Bye....

When we were down getting breakfast, we heard loud, thumping music (mind you, this was 7am) and in pulled a black Mercedes. He parked in one of the very few front parking spots and walked in. He worked at the front desk. The next morning right about 7am, the same thing, loud music from the same black Mercedes and he pulled in the front. Except this time, there wasn't a parking spot available, so what did he do? He parked in front of the main doors, not in a parking spot, and walked in. He made it nearly impossible for those of us who were parked in the front spots to back out without hitting his car. When we went to check out, and came off the elevator, this same guy was on his cell phone. We stood for a good minute before he told whoever it was to hold on. He didn't say I'll call you back or even bother to shield his phone. He had been on a personal call for the last 30 minutes with someone named Maddy. He acted aggravated that the transactions were taking so long and didn't even wait for us to turn around before picking up his cell phone to resume his personal call. This place is a joke.

First of all I would like to apologies for any inconvenience and I have been working at this location for 7 years i have never come to the hotel with music bumping loud because i know all of my guest are sleeping and if somebody was talking on the phone he did take care of you at the check out time, I don't know for what reason that the transaction took longer but still once again you were not satisfied so i would like to apologies one more time because the customer is always right.
