Great location. Very close to the downtown business district but far enough away from the traffic congestion. Front desk services were very helpful and knowledgeable of the local area. Todd, the GM, has assembled a great staff. Compliments to Austin, Shiela, Cameron and Troy. This hotel has a full service breakfast available but no evening bar and restaurant. This does...

The hotel is near the nice restaurants and shops in a street which you can walk to the beach. It's right next to the exit of the freeway. So is convenient to drive to San Diego or to L.A. Frontdesk is friendly. Check-in/check-out is efficiently fast. I stayed here twice. Once in a sea view room with regular bath, once...

I would like to say a little something about the staff here at The Holiday Inn San Clemente. Although I am treated like a family member each and every time here, I have never written a review.

Went with my girlfriend for a quick getaway. The manager Todd was extremely helpful and suggested a couple of great spots for us to check out on our walk to the pier. It is easy to forget what a nice little town San Clemente is but with the hotel located right in the heart of town it is easy to...

We enjoyed an overnight stay in San Clemente and was welcomed by Shane W. when we arrived. He was very friendly and helpful and upgraded us to a suite. We enjoyed the view from our room of the ocean. The hotel was a little dated, but was in good condition for the age. The rooms were updated and the beds...

The service that my father & I received from Troy Morgan and his staff was outstanding. They were very accommodating to our daily needs. The entire staff at the hotel would pleasantly inform us of the various activities to do around town and in the nearby cities. The hotel and the room were kept very clean. The room is spacious...

This is a largely undiscovered piece of heaven. The hotel faces the beautiful blue Pacific ocean and is priced so reasonably for what is offered. The staff is absolutely wonderful. Special thanks to Will the chef and Todd the general manager. I don't think you could ever get more for your money than staying here.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in April and were pleasantly surprised with the great location. We were able to walk to restaurants and shops on Del Mar Ave. We even made the long walk to the beach. This property is certainly not ocean front, but some of the rooms do offer views of the water.
