The ocean view and the jetted tub . And the close location to the beach

While a wee bit of a drive, there was a clear view of the ocean from the balcony. The a/c was very cool/cold when desired and overall, it was peacefully quiet, while not feeling abandoned. I'd definitely stay again if I were in the area.

The property was decorated beautifully and very clean. I enjoyed the spa it would have been nice if the pool was heated. Walking distance to downtown was convenient

We had a great stay, the room was very nice and the location was great. The staff was very accommodating with everything. We would definitely stay here again.

Check in was easy. The common areas are nice and updated. Room with an ocean view and close to a food and shops. 4 mins down to the pier. The room was as updated but nice enough.

Decor was very nice Room had a very noisy AC unit and very loud running water from room above. Made it very difficult to sleep.

The property was great. The odor in the first room was bad. Moved to a second room better but still that wet clothes musty smell. In the hallway , lobby and dining area was fine. The staff was great. Just didn’t want to keep going from room to room. Tried opening the door to balcony to air out but didn’t help much.

Much quieter than expected for a hotel next to freeway Great location for restaurants. Free parking and no hidden fees were a bonus Overall very pleasant stay

Walkable to everything downtown! Clean rooms. Free parking!!! The only downside is non-ocean view means by the freeway. So pay extra for that. Staff was always accommodating and nice. Breakfast was so great too. We were with kids and multiple families and they put us all next to each other. Definitely staying here again!

We had a wonderful 5 night stay here in the beautiful San Clemente. We walked to the beach each day and also to the shops in town. Hotel was clean and the staff was friendly. The kids loved the pool and we all enjoyed the hot breakfasts.

San Clemente is a cute town between LA and San Diego. It is also only 10 mintues away from San Juan Capistrano mission. The staff is excellent at this hotel. Stay on the ocean side away from the freeway. Cute shops along this street.

This hotel is at the top of Del Mar, the Main Street in San Clemente. It is the perfect location to be around shopping and restaurants and about 1 mile from the beach/pier. Room with the view was very spacious and comfortable.

My wife and I enjoyed a 4 day stay at the holiday inn San clemente!! The hotel could definitely benefit from an update, but all in all it was an excellent value with beautiful views of the ocean...We would stay again!

The hotel is okay. The bed were not comfortable at all. They need to switch out the matress. The pool needs some TLC. Breakfast was good...Iraj the server was very personable and enjoyed his humor... Probably the best part the hotel has going for them.

Spent 5 days at the Holiday Inn San Clemente while visiting our daughter. The location is great..short walk to breakfast, lunch or dinner in downtown San Clemente. Walking distance to the beach and San Clemente pier. Easy on and off to I-5.

Our travel plans were disrupted due to weather so our noon arrival changed to 9PM and were exhausted. Shane answered the phone and was very helpful. It was great to hear a kind voice. I wished I would have requested a room that faced the ocean and was a bit concerned about possible noise but that was NOT the case. They had a hedge of bushes that helped block out the noise. The hotel was clean, the staff very friendly and house keeping did a great job cleaning our room. Supplies were ample and the restaurant served HOT food. They are only open for breakfast. We were able to take a wonderful walk down Del Mar Dr. and enjoy the night life. The Peer is well within walking distance, boutiques all around and local flair. I will be staying here again when we travel back for our sons deployment in October.

Hotel was clean, staff was friendly, and the bed was soft. I only spent time sleeping at the hotel but it's proximity to the beach (about a 15 min walk downhill) made it a great stay!
