“Everything but the breakfast.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

This is a great little hotel, great value. The one area that needs reworking is the breakfast. The food is doled out like prescription medication by two staff who even put the bread in the toaster for you. Problem is, the food is high glycemic carbs, no whole grains, no protein. Found out from another guest that boiled eggs and yogurt are available if you ask, but not displayed. This set-up is unlike any breakfast I've ever encountered at a Best Western. Suggestions: Improve the food, have guests serve themselves,

Room Tip: Ask for a room that backs onto th north parking lot.

Just returned from 2 weeks in California/Nevada of which 5 nights were spent at the Casablanca. Haven't a single negative comment to leave. Check in was quick and friendly, room was large and very comfortable, breakfast was good, plenty of free parking and the pool area was great. The location is perfect, right on the Pacific Coast Highway just a short walk from the beach and within easy driving distance of some of the best beaches in the world - Laguna Beach, Newport, Huntington etc. Some really nice restaurants in San Clemente. Just under an hour gets you to San Diego.

Room Tip: Pay afew dollars more and go for the spa option, its only a bubbly bath but gets you a better room.

We chose this hotel because it is close to the beach (2 blocks) and not far from local restaurants and the city centre. We stayed two nights.

It was clean and comfortable, with pleasant service at reception. The pool area is large and was particularly appreciated by our 10 year old twin daughters.

Breakfast was included and though simple was just about OK.

Overall, good value.

Staff was nice, it's close to the beach and room was clean. Probably when it opened many yares ago, it was meant as a sort of motor-inn and was very modern in those days. AC is old style and noisy, rooms hace pretty thin walls (....). OK to spend a night a leave again.

Found this hotel on spec on the internet as part of our itinery on our visit to southern california. A very nice good VFM hotel which offered a basic but adequate breakfast. Pool area good and central Spanish courtyard feature very nice. Pleasant staff would recommend this hotel. There is a local beach in walkable distance, and San Clemente village is also walkeable if you are feeling energetic !

This is the second time I have used this hotel and have enjoyed the experience each time. The pool area is always nice and clean and it is five minutes walk from the beach. At a leisurely walk the pier is only 30 - 40 minutes walk along the seafront away. The rooms are kept very clean and the staff are always friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: I always choose the king spa with balcony.
