The Volare, an Ascend Hotel Collection Member
Ranked #6 of 18 Hotels in San Clemente
Reviewed October 7, 2010

The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful - in fact every staff person we met during our six night stay was very kind and helpful and made us, as out-of-state guests, feel very welcome. The hotel is beautiful and well kept. We enjoyed the pool and also walked to the beach a number of times. The hotel will even check out beach chairs you can take to the beach with you at no charge. Parking is free and convenient at the hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We enjoyed our week's stay for our son's wedding. The room was spacious and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Pool area was clean and well maintained. The location was great! Very walkable distance to the beach and other attractions. Would love to stay there again.

Any questions we had the staff was more than happy to help us. It was also fun to be close to some cute shops which we also enjoyed.

We had a wedding in San Clemente and had a lot of family staying there. The hotel was amazing. The staff so friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel. If you want a Southern California experience this is the place to go. Your close to everything. They also have chairs and towels for the beach that you can use at no cost which is really great if your flying in from somewhere else in the country.

As you said, offering beach chair and towel for the day at the ocean, it is a fantastic idea! We are listening to our Guest all the time, so contact us with any new idea.
We also have BBQ available on request at the pool area.

wonderful staff, wonderful location, wonderful service, wwwonnndddeeerrrfffuuull stay. It's not very often you get it all in one package. My family and I were very impressed with everything especially the wonderful staff. We were greeted with such pleasant attitudes and was mostly impressed by the managers wonderful spirits and professional character. All this sure made up for the uncertainty of this hotel being so close to the freeway. We are very glad we stayed there and defenitely will be back.

Keep up whatever you are doing. It is great work. Thank you!!!

I knew we were going to have a great relaxing vacation as soon as we walked in the lobby. Everyone was so friendly. We were sincerly greeted by every staff member we encountered. Their statements always included, "If there anything you need, let us know."
The weather was great so we walked almost everywhere.
We ate at many eateries that were within walking distance of the hotel but we enjoyed room service and the hotel restaurant.
There was an in-room whirl pool tub that was truly relaxing before bedtime. The bed was so comfortable that we slept late every morning and had breakfast on the balcony looking at the Pacific Ocean.
We are looking forward to returning again and again.

I was so impressed with this hotel and would highly reccommend it to anybody for business or leisure. The management is terrific and extremely accomodating, rooms were serviced to my satisfaction every morning, and so many restaurants and shopping within walking distance in the quaint city of San Clemente. And if you like the beach you can walk there too.
