Fantastic location

Pros: We liked the atmosphere. How friendly & helpful the staff was. The view!
Cons: The strong smell of cigarettes in a non-smoking area (hallway outside our room) Maybe an automatic air neutralizer?
Location: Perfect location to walk to the shops & restaurants and even the pier/beach.
Loved waking up to the view of the ocean. Perfectly located to walk to all the shops and restaurants. Very friendly staff. The hotel maids were very nice and our room was always well stocked and perfectly clean. We literally didn't want to leave this hotel. We will not be staying at any other hotel when we go back to San Clemente.

Nice hotel close to town and Starbucks

Pros: The pool and spa were clean. The cleaning staff was very pleasant.
Cons: The fitness room equipment was run down.The equipment should be repaired if not updated or removed and not advertised. The restaurant needs improvment
The hotel was nice. The staff at the front desk seemed distracted or disinterested for the most part. The restaurant was very disappointing, from the staff to the food. I would recommend the hotel but would avoid the restaurant.

Quiet, nice and close to the beach

It was a great trip and we really enjoy San Clemente. Would love to go back. This was our family vacation and both our kids enjoy their stay.

Does the job, nothing more.

Pros: Close restaurants
Upgraded to a 'beach facing' apartment to find we were on ground floor, no views and a few meters from the busy street. Otherwise, it was basic room/hotel that was fine for what we needed. Nothing special though.

GREAT stay!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
I was not sure about the hotel. I was worried about if they would keep the reservation, since we were going to check in late, but when I called them, they told me not to worry about it. As soon as we got to the hotel, the check in was super quick and within 15 minutes we were resting in the nice room. The bed had 4 pillows, two soft and two firm, which are my favorites. It was very clean, and quiet, close to the beach and restaurant. Also, the check out was quick, nice parking garage. I would definitely stay again.

Great stay and close to everything.

Joined friends for the weekend and arrived a bit early. The woman at the desk was very pleasant and allowed us to check in early. Use my Priorty card and got an upgrade. Room.was nice and clean with a great view of the ocean. Hotel is close to all the shops and restaurants. Staff was friendly and helpful at all times. There is a restaurant on site but didn't get a chance to try it. Will be back again

The manager went out of his way to make our stay comfortable.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
We were first put in a room which was noisy and the manager moved us to an upgraded room with a balcony at no extra charge. We were in San Clemente visiting our son who is in the US Marines stationed at Camp Pendleton. This Holiday Inn is located within walking distance of shops, restaurants and the beach. It is an older hotel but we highly recommend it.
