Hotel has convenient parking and access for I-5. The rooms are pleasant, comfortable, and clean. If you a lite sleeper, I would suggest not getting a room facing the freeway, unless you like to watch cars speeding by.

This was a surprisingly quiet hotel, despite its proximity to the interstate. The staff were kind and pleasant, the location was convenient, and the price was right for us. There are many great restaurants within walking distance. I strongly recommend South of Nick's for excellent Mexican food for dinner!

This had to be one of the best hotels I have stayed at, great location close to the beach but away from the crowd..Hotel staff is amazing. I highly recommend this hotel. They have a pool and a continental breakfast. They are also within close distance of a variety of restaurants.

Wonderful staff, great location, excellent pricing, and comfortable rooms. You can't ask for much more in Southern California. This is an excellent hotel. The free WiFi is fast compared to other hotels in the area. Complimentary breakfast offers a lot of variety and helps to get your day started early.

Stayed here for 3 nights for business needs. The staff was very accommodating and gave me an ocean view room (middle of the week) away from the freeway noise. The room, with two beds, was very spacious, clean, had a refrigerator and microwave, and a Keurig mini-coffee maker. The restaurant was under renovation, and the breakfast room had very minimal...

Our daughter got married in San Clemente's Casa Romantica. We selected the Holliday In San Clemente after visiting several local hotels. The Holiday Inn was extremely accommodating to our wishes. The rates were very reasonable for the area, the rooms were clean, comfortable and large, and the staff, from Manager Todd to the cleaning staff were easy to deal with...

My husband treated me to a surprise weekend getaway on my 60th birthday! I love the hotel room with a balcony, view of the ocean and a jacuzzi inside the room. The hotel is walking distance to the beach, great places to eat and quaint shops. Hotel provided free breakfast, parking and has excellent staff.
