“Clean smart and economical hotel in San Clemente!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Love the location and hotel is in sweet spot for San Clemente! The staff is polite, smiles and very helpful. Guzy at the front desk make a point on asking about room and service. We are booking here again in December. Great for kids also. Alan from Mill Valley

The staff was professional, very helpful and extremely nice. The front desk clerk remembered we were there for a family affair and asked each time we saw her how we were enjoying our family get-together. She also always asked if there was anything we needed. The other clerks were just as nice, and the maid was very nice.

Room Tip: I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to tha San Clemente area.

Stayed here a couple of times. No frills, but clean, comfortable and a good experience.
The breakfast is "ok', but don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.
Definitely be happy to stay here again.
