“Great place! Ideal for groups too.”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

This is a fantastic little gem of a hotel, a solid 3-star + experience. I was scouting out hotels for my group travel company, and I would definitely recommend it for individuals or groups. There's a nice pool, indoor facilities for a large event with circular tables, etc. The rooms and beds are comfortable, there's a free breakfast (they do need to spring for a couple of extra toasters!), they just updated the WIFI, which is free, they have indoor hallways, and the staff is friendly and helpful. It's just about a mile from the beach, maybe less, and they'll even loan you beach towels, umbrellas, and beach toys. That's pretty great, in my opinion! I'd never been to downtown San Clemente by the pier, etc.... it's really cute, and I can't wait to go back and spend more time there. We had pizza slices and the kiddos played on the beach after our long car ride down. We saw that there were fire pits on the beach where people could make smores and enjoy a night at the beach. Fun!

The staff couldn't be nicer, and the property couldn't been better kept. They're doing it right all the time. You'll never want for anything, and there's breakfast every morning, what's not to love.I recommend this hotel to any and all, you will not regret it, I promise. Say hi to Guzy, Steven, (Elizabeth, who's off to school) Cindy and Charlie for me. They'll make sure your stay is perfect.
Minutes from the beach, one minute from the freeway, this place is great. You could do a whole lot worse than this. The coast of Southern California is right outside your door.

We spent just one night here and really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, excellent breakfast, great location, and highly professional staff. 5 min from the beach to here was perfect for our day boogie boarding and relaxing. We stay in Holiday Inn Expresses as a family as much as possible as we have excellent experiences 99% of the time. Thanks again!

We stayed at this Holiday Inn for 3 nights during our stay in California. I was very satisfied with the hotel. Very well kept and clean. The employees were very nice as well. The breakfast each morning was an extra bonus. They call it a continental breakfast, but it's a full hot meal with eggs, sausage, pancakes and all other types of breakfast food. It is close to I 5 but you cannot hear the noise from the freeway. My husband and I were very satisfied with our stay.

We booked this through low cost holidays and it was a great price.The room was big with a nice comfy bed and a sofa. It also had a fridge microwave and coffee maker.There is plenty of choice for breakfast although the room did get a bit crowded some days. They didn't mind though if you just took your food and ate at the tables outside which was quieter and pleasant.There is a nice pool with limited loungers. There is a Vietnamese restaurant and fast food outlets within a short walking distance.

Room Tip: The people in reception say they are going to sort it out but on the lower floor we couldn't get...

Thank you for your recent comments. We are very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Holiday Inn Express San Clemente. I am happy you took advantage of eating on our patio. I agree with you, it is much more pleasant to eat outside especially with Southern California weather. We are working on our Wi-Fi issue on the 1st floor and we will be upgrading our entire Wi-Fi system by the end of September.
