We had a wonderful stay at this hotel. Very friendly people. Troy was very kind during our stay. Rooms were very clean and we had a wonderful view. We plan on going back and hopefully stay at your place again...

This is a largely undiscovered piece of heaven. The hotel faces the beautiful blue Pacific ocean and is priced so reasonably for what is offered. The staff is absolutely wonderful. Special thanks to Will the chef and Todd the general manager. I don't think you could ever get more for your money than staying here.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in April and were pleasantly surprised with the great location. We were able to walk to restaurants and shops on Del Mar Ave. We even made the long walk to the beach. This property is certainly not ocean front, but some of the rooms do offer views of the water. Our...

My boyfriend and I stayed in the jacuzzi suite and loved it. We could walk to great restaurants and great shops. The staff were so nice and helpful. Will definitely stay again. We loved sitting on the spacious balcony and could see the ocean and a great restaurant across the street. Loved the architecture of buildings

This property is at Exit 75 directly next to I-5. Rooms facing the freeway I can imagine would be very loud so we requested and were provided a 3rd floor room facing the ocean (15 minutes walk away down Del Mar Ave). The location is great for a daytime or evening stroll down the main streets of San Clemente which...

I'll start with the positives: clean room within walking distance to downtown. HOWEVER, we paid over $200 / night for an "ocean view with a private balcony" and instead - more than half of our balcony was obstructed by a cement wall and where we COULD see out, we were eye-level with a DUMPSTER and the hotel parking lot (the...

My wife and I stayed here for a friends wedding. She arrived before me and found that the room hadn't been fully cleaned. She mentioned this to the front desk who promptly said it would be taken care of and adjusted the daily rate of the room for that night. I spent a majority of my time in the room...

And by all, we mean an awesome jacuzzi bathtub for two and an ocean view balcony; a fridge and flat screen TV - not that we turned it on even once! Mirrors everywhere made it much more fun to watch ourselves in this pet friendly establishment. We look forward to establishing a corporate account with the manager Todd, since everyone...
