I even rang them shortly before needing to leave for the wedding with a dire need for scissors and the front desk staff ran it straight up for me which was greatly... More

Had a great stay in San Clemente. The staff was very accommodating. They were genuinely concerned that my family and I had a great stay. I'm a Platinum member and they made sure that I was upgraded to a beach facing room. The room was clean and comfortable. I have to mention Laura, Sheila and Bethany as the super helpful... More

I was apprehensive about the location at first since it was near the freeway; however, we discovered the property to be quiet. The five stars are for how pleasantly surprised we were with the comfort and cleanliness of the hotel in general and the very friendly clerk, Mitch, who directed us to a great local restaurant nearby named La Siesta....

Upon arriving, my family and I were extremely fatigued and in dire need of a nap when we arrived in California. We were greeted kindly and asked if we needed anything else before we walked up into our room. We noticed our room was a bit noisy due to our neighbors on the floor above us. The hotel immediately took... More

Tones matter to a customer! "It's Turner" was the response "have a a good day" and slam of the phone.
