It was an awesome stay from the booking to the service at the Hotel. The people were very friendly and helpful. The Hotel was only 1 1/2 miles away from the San Clemente pier. There are also a few places to eat right at the bottom of the property and a big outlet mall across the street. They have a...

Spent one night here on a quick weekend to visit friends. The property and room quality is consistent with other similar HIE properties. The entry way and pool area were especially nice. The bed was comfortable and the bath was clean and well stocked. However, the refrigerator in our room was ridiculously noisy every time it cycled off, and our...

I have stayed at other Holiday Inns before but none of them compared to this one. The breakfast was great and way more then I expected. Not to mention the staff was amazing and so helpful. The rooms were very clean...I would definitely recommend staying here!

I have stayed at the Holiday Inn San Clemente a number of times and have found it to always be a pleasure. The location is wonderful being situated just off i5 and not far from PCH. The rooms are very clean and updated. The Hotel staff is top notch and always willing to go the extra mile. Under other circumstances,...

Arrived early but we're able to check in. We were given a suite, which was large and spacious. Room faced on to the freeway, which meant you could hear a lot of traffic news. The room and bathroom were quite dingy and looked like they could do with a refresh, they were really dimly lit too, which added to the...

With HIE properties you can usually count on their consistent product and this is no exception. The hotel was very clean and well maintained. The building has an old California mission look and feel to it on the outside and the lobby feels very large for an HIE. The beds were comfortable along with great shower pressure and plenty of...
