2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
This hotel was adequate but grossly over-priced. Paid $435 for an average room. That price is unconscionable for the basic room (next to the freeway) that we were given.
Stayed 1 night in Sep 2021

5/5 Excellent

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Our room had an ocean view and overlook of the sleepy, little beach town of San Clemente. Felt a bit European. Had a great time!
Stayed 3 nights in Sep 2021

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family
Liked: Cleanliness
We have stayed at the Volare many times, so I have some familiarity with the place. It was a “meh”stay this time. Our room was right next to I5 freeway, it was a handicap room which we did not request nor are we handicapped. The shower did not maintain it’s temperature-every minute it would get super hot, the bed was super squeaky.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Nothing particularly exceptional about property, amenities, service, or ambiance. WiFi was unobtainable even w tech help. Room was located next to interstate. Desk staff seemed indifferent. Won't be returning.

3/5 Okay

Traveled with family
The location was good. Lots of dining options within walking distance. Bed was comfortable. Curtains where dirty and torn. Ants in bathroom and sink in room. Windows need to be cleaned on the outside. Ocean view was obstructed by buildings and roof tops. Definitely NOT worth the $400 per night cost.
