CA Small Beach Town

A March 2005 trip to San Clemente by MKRose

Quote: San Clemente is a small beach town in Orange County. It's dog-friendly, with quaint shopping, a walking pier into ocean, and bar nightlife.

Holiday Inn San Clemente

Hotel | "Holiday Inn"

The location to downtown San Clemete is the only reason to stay at this Holiday Inn. A few steps above the main street, the walk through a small courtyard is fabulous! Amenities are average (typical motel motif), but it is older and has major plumbing problems, for which plungers are frequently distributed. Pet-friendly and smoking rooms are available, but for nonsmoking-without-pet guests, the cleanliness seems sacrificed. It is a 10-minute walk to the beach through neighborhoods and a shopping street - I did this frequently, as I wanted to be in the room as little as possible.
