Took daughter to San Clemente for her birthday. After checking different hotel decided on Holiday Inn. Glad we did. It was nice easy to find and in a great location. Only down fall I saw was no breakfast included but I am glad that did not change my mind. It is in downtown area off the freeway but does not...

This was a great pick. Within 1km walk to the beach, the rooms were generous in size and very clean with all the amenities you would expect from Holiday Inn. We stayed here for a wedding and our party took approximately 30 rooms - it was impressive how well they managed to cater for us in the midst of an...

Stayed here for my brother's wedding (along with at least 20-30 in our group) and found the staff extremely accomodating as we basically took over half their hotel. 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...

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...

San Clemente is a beautiful and relaxing town in south Orange County, and there is no better place to stay and visit than Holiday Inn San Clemente. The staff is attentive and greeted us warmly upon check in. We were pleasantly surprised to find out we had been upgraded to a suite with jacuzzi and a balcony with ocean view....

I stayed here a week while attending a training session. I had trouble with my credit card at check in. The staff was very patient and accommodating while I worked it out. The rooms are clean and well maintained. Its walking distance to restaurants, and shopping and nightlife. Its a 15 minute walk to the pier and beach. I will...

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...
