As Long Beach locals we decided to come down for a quick overnight with our 16-month-old and really enjoyed ourselves. The hotel has convenient location and felt more like a beach-side resort than what I would typically consider a Holiday Inn to be. The staff was friendly and attentive (a brand new pack-and-play delivered to our room for the little... More

My family and I took advantage of a Groupon deal for 2 nights at the Holiday Inn. I think for the most part, this hotel does its job, meaning, do not expect a very fancy hotel. It is updated with newer amenities. It is very close to the freeway but that did not bother us at all. There was ample... More

Located right off the freeway a few blocks from the north side of downtown area with plenty of eateries & shops. The SC pier is another 10-15 minute leisure walk further down. Consider paying a little extra to receive the King Suite w/ jacuzzi on the view side w balcony. Keep in mind nearby are all commercial buildings & the... More

Last week my husband and I spent two nights at the Holiday Inn in San Clemente. It is an older hotel that has been completely redone with pleasing decor, good beds and bedding, microwave, refrigerator, flat screen TV and even a choice of firm or soft pillows. The room was very clean, and there was a free bottle of water... More

What a great place to stay in San Clemente. We were lucky enough to stay in room 337 for 4 nights from 4/5 through 4/9. We checked in around 9 pm, as our flight into LAX had landed at 7 pm. The young man who checked us in was very nice and helpful. When we got to our room, I... More

Wonderful place to stay if you want to get away for a couple days. We had a great ocean view with a variety of great restaraunts nearby. Only a short walk from shopping district and other services. Although the carpet was a little dirty and the service was slow, comfy beds and a friendly staff awaited us. Overall, a nice... More

My husband bought a Groupon at the last minute so we could get out of town for a few nights. We had a great stay. Ocean/sunset views, walking distance to shops and restaurants. Quite a pleasant little property. Our only complaint was a dirty hot tub and the pool isn't heated but we weren't there long enough for it to... More

We purchased a Groupon for this hotel and stayed there over Spring Break for 2 nights. The staff was very kind. The room was spacious, and very clean, newly renovated. Bathroom sparkling clean. Great small patio with ocean view (in distance). Great that each room has a nice sized small refrigerator and microwave. Upon checking in, we learned of the... More

Just came back from a 2 night stay booked through a Groupon deal. Stayed in room 303 and when we first walked in room stunk. Opened sliding door and it seemed better after awhile so being that I was with 3 kids who were anxious to go out and explore I did not ask to change room. One of the... More
