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 ocean view is on the distance! If you get the even room #s you end up literally watching cars race on the 5 FWY like you are in a NASCAR speedway:) Nice for a few hours but not for overnight stays. The third floor is on the fwy level. The rooms do seem well insulated we on the view side didn't hear much of the FWY noise inside unless you get on the balcony. Not much use of balcony because this time of year you get the June gloom factor where it's overcast & cool pretty much most of the day.
The room was nice with recent renovations, very comfy king bed a small armchair, desk with chair, cabinet w/ microwave small fridge, a 32"? flat screen & 2 drawers. Next to bed is an oversize jacuzzi decorated with mirrors all around which gives the room a larger feel. By the entryway you have a modern single vanity area next to an enclosed bathroom & separate shower. In the middle separating the batroom from the sleeping area is an open closet area with the security valuables box.
Free covered parking a definite plus in CA beach cities. A very good Free Wifi w/out chasing the signal.The toiletries are from Bath & Body works, free USA daily paper. The Hotel staff we came across was very polite & pleasant
If I had any complaint it would be the bland in room coffee but there is a very nice Starbucks coffee shop across the street & a well rated coffee shop called Zebra House but it's closed in the evening.
If you are a cyclist about half a mile from the Hotel you catch the dedicated bike trail that takes you down to San Onofre, Camp Pendleton & beyond! We would definitely come back to the Holiday Inn when visiting San Clemente!
