Great room, very comfortable bed, quiet. Only issue was some difficulty finding it (you have to drive through a shopping center parking lot past the pizza place dumpsters to find the entry), plus the parking spaces at the hotel won't hardly accommodate more than a Mini Cooper size car.

Eddy, the manager went above and beyond to save my family's vacation. The hotel was full that night due to a wedding. So, calling around we both realized the situation was worse than feared. There was not anything available within a 2 hour distance. He went above and beyond calling any contacts and even competitors. Needless to say, we ended... More

We stayed at the hotel to break up a trip down highway 1. The hotel itself is situated within a complex of shops a restaurants which is handy if you want to pick up dinner etc. The rooms were clean and comfortable and fine for an overnight stay! Breakfast was also good, with a selection of fruit cereals and hot... More

We have stayed at this property a number of times while visiting family. The quality of the stay has gradually declined through the years. This last stay was the last straw. Despite paying nearly $200 for the hotel room, we were awakened by late-night/early morning returnees from a bar that insisted on stomping around their room for hours. We had... More

Such a beautiful hotel, with fantastic service. Worth every penny. The rooms are beautiful, the pool and fitness area are nice, and the staff is friendly. Has laundry options for guests and plenty of parking. Down the hill is a 99 cent store that is great if you have to live in your hotel room for awhile. 10/10 would stay... More

Needed a place to stay on short notice over Labor Day weekend. The rate was reasonable and rooms were available here. The business center was nice and worked well and the rooms were good. The checkin was smooth and Archie took good care of us.

Great choice for reasonable lodging in San Clemente. Rooms spacious and well appointed. Staff friendly. Ample parking. Entrance awkward through strip mall parking lot. Pool small. In spite of proximity to freeway, very quiet. Temperature fan not controllable...either full on off. Healthy choices for breakfast.
