Spent 3 nights at this HIX recently with my wife and we totally enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and modern, the beds were very comfortable. Internet wireless access was fast. The location is right off the I-5 but we could not hear the traffic from our room (217). The only problem was a minor water leak from the...

I stayed at this neat looking hotel after a day in San Diego on my way to LA. I booked it as a blind deal with priceline and couldn't have lucked into a better place to stay. The room was updated and large, with excellent AC. The breakfast was excellent. Hot and cold options (cinnamon buns, pancakes, cereals, bagels, juices)....

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...

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...

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.
