nice hotel for price

Posted Feb 18, 2015
Pros: The staff and the breakfast buffet was great!
Cons: Didn't know pets were allowed. A barking dog or two was not great. They didn't bark long, but it was annoying.
We enjoyed our time at this Holiday Inn....especially the friendly staff.

a hidden gem

Posted Feb 16, 2015
Pros: clean, free wifi, a really big breakfast including pancakes, omelets, cereal, fruit, muffins, salt water heated pool, friendly staff, big parking lot
Location: downtown San Clemente is super close by, beaches are near
This place was much more than I expected. It was in an awkward location; had to drive through a shopping complex and it was tucked away hidden behind everything, but that made it feel more private! The room is super nice and clean and had a fridge and microwave. I really liked this place and I would definitely stay there again.

Close to the beach but we got lost

Posted Feb 10, 2015
Pros: Modern, clean and breakfast buffet.
Cons: Compensation for the inconvenience.
Location: Not much. Took a long time before we found a decent restaurant, Ricardo's Mexican restaurant but it was good.
GPS took us to a different location. We found the place 1 exit ahead of what GPS told us to go. It was up on the hill and a bit isolated. The place was modern but it is does NOT have an indoor pool like it showed in the photo. It was quite deceiving. We got a room in the first floor aka 2nd floor but a white wall for a view. Around 9 pm we had to call front desk because the people upstairs were walking hard that you can hear their footsteps. They stopped but resumed at around 3am. I told the front desk but all she said was next time we will give you a room in the 3rd floor. Our room was $113 for a night but I would have paid a little more for a more relaxing evening.

Pros: comfortable beds and rooms.. got to bring our dog so that was extra nice.
Cons: we had a great time
Location: We made a trip over to Pizza Port, great salad and pizza and watched the sunset from the patio :)
We had a great stay at this Holiday Inn Express. It's very conveniently close to the freeway but the room is very clean, nice and quiet. Ill definitely stay again if need be.

Decent hotel

Posted Jan 22, 2015
Check in experience was fine, but the check out person was very rude. Not sure if he was having a bad morning or what, but he had quite the negative attitude like I was bothering him by checking out at 5am. Overall the hotel was nice, bed was comfortable and clean. The freeway traffic was a little more than I expected.
