I had to make a last minute business trip to San Clemente. When I say last minute, i called at 4:30pm and arrived at 7:pm. I was told that I got the last room. My first thought was - it will be the worst room in the hotel on the freeway side. When I checked in, I was greeted with my name and notified that my ocean facing room with a king size bed was waiting. Wow. The room was clean and while it has an ocean view, the hotel is not right on the water. The main business district is a block a way with a variety of restaurants.
The continental breakfast was typical fare - muffins, cereal, OJ. nothing real special.
My plan was for only for one night. The morning I was originally planning to leave, I asked for an additional night as my work plans changed. Without hesitation, it seemed like they had to move a couple of reservations around so I could keep my same room. They said they were happy to have me for an additional night.
This is not a 5 star hotel, nor did I expect it to be. However, the cleanliness and staff make it 5 stars.
