This hotel provided a taste of home as I attended a nearby conference. The room and common spaces were clean and appropriately quiet with an inviting outdoor gathering space and covered parking. Especially appreciated the gracious and helpful staff.

We had a room that faced the ocean. Great view and the charming town with restaurants and shops is very convenient. Starbucks is a block away. The walk to the pier is downhill through town. Very fun. The walk from the pier is uphill through town. Not as much fun. Friendly staff made our time great.

This is a real California experience, if we have to stay in San Clemente on our way to or from San Diego, there is nowhere else! This is a small hotel and you almost feel like visiting friends when you go there. The big boss Todd came to welcome us back and Mr Troy made sure we were getting the...

San Clemente is a great beach town with some good restaurants, interesting shops and a great walking beach. This Holiday Inn is located close to all of the above. The staff is helpful and pleasant and the maid service is very dependable. You hear a bit of noise from the freeway and there isn't a great outdoor space to sit,...
