A no frills functional place to spend the night. A very odd steep uphill location in the corner of a fairly large shopping plaza. Don't expect any scenic views despite its elevated San Clemente location and the free way roars audibly by within hearing distance. However, the

Hello Pat, Thank you for sharing your most recent visit at the Holiday Inn Express San Clemente. I love when guests take time and express their views and experiences. It is true our location is on a hill behind a large shopping center, there are various restaurants and boutique shops but only a short drive away. We are delighted to hear you found your room clean and comfortable and that our staff was courteous during your overnight visit. I am sorry you did not enjoy the various complimentary breakfast items, we are working on offering more dietary food items soon. Once again, thank you for your detailed review. Will share with my team your Tripadvisor review.

Is there a size limit for a dog? I have a Great Dane that is easy going, but of course big.
I would just call the desk and ask them. I don't recall seeing any dogs the night I stayed there.
