This hotel is a great value, you get a great, clean and well staffed hotel at an affordable price. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, especially Guzy she treats you like she honestly cares.

Excellent hotel. Kinda hidden behind a shopping mall like most have said but it was well worth it. I would definitely stay again if I am in the area. Bars are not walking distance but Uber only cost $5 to closest one's.

My family and I came to san Clemente for a camping and surfing trip, and ended up adding a couple of hotel nights to extend our vacation. We LOVED this hotel!

I stayed here for three nights while traveling for business. It's a nicely maintained hotel with clean (albeit small) rooms. Pros: Full breakfast for free. Convenient location near freeway, outlet mall, and restaurants. Welcoming front desk staff. Comfortable beds with choice of firm and soft pillows. Nifty tablet provided in the room for accessing hotel services. Could be better: TVs... More

Ok, so, I stayed here, not by choice but thru my work. Having said that, its not the most luxurious place on Earth but it's a very nice, basic but better-than-average place to rest your head. Everything works just fine, it's very clean, perhaps even excessively so, and the facilities again are basic but very functional. This place reminds me... More

A bit confusing to get to as it is behind a mini mall, but once you get to the top of the hill you can't help but be impressed by the unique exterior. Inside it was clean and bright. All staff were extremely friendly. Breakfast was great as well. Clean and comfortable room. Didn't use the outdoor pool but it... More

What a really nice place.. Super friendly staff. Clean rooms. Easily accessible (after you find it behind the shopping center the first time) Nice continental breakfast with plenty of options... what more could I ask for. We travel to this area about every two years... I found my permanent residence

We add a room with 2 beds. The two beds were in two separate rooms and share the same bathroom. It is was really great. It was like having 2 hotel rooms for the price of one. The continental breakfast was really normal, but at the time we were there they were doing renovation in the kitchen.
