I really like how the hotel is a 5 min walk to all the local restaurants and shops, and a15 min walk to the beach. I stayed in the room with the jacuzzi, so I highly recommend that as well.

Really enjoyed my stay here. Like the location to the main stream of San Clemente. Will definitely stay here again when inre visit San Clemente.

i paid to upgrade my room to a jazucci room, and the tub is literally just in the room, not in a shower or any type of enclosed space which makes the room SUPER humid. all of the tub moisture and smells were in the room. the AC didnt work so i kept the sliders open which made it noisy from the bar across the street. i switched rooms at 4am because i was so uncomfortable. all the rooms seem to have an insane amount of pet dander bc of the pet friendly policy. It just felt really dirty and overpriced and uncomfortable.

The place is basically "lipstick on a pig." We suspect the property was damaged by an earthquake and instead of properly pulling-up uneven flooring, they covered it with carpet. The tile that was exposed had masking tape holding them down, lacking grout and covering a trip hazard. The walls were super thin, a drunk couple woke us at 1:30am, seemingly inside our room. The family above us woke-up at 6am both mornings and began tossing a ball for which the young child scurried after over, and over, and over again. We heard every pitter-patter. The location was right next to I-5, thankfully our windows faced away, or else there would be no sleeping. The sheets felt like sandpaper. The location is close to a few diner's, Starbucks and donut shop, but we will never stay here again.

Great experience all around. Thanks for the excellent stay! Nice meeting all the wonderful staff throughout being there. Thanks!

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.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. I am so sorry that our jacuzzi room was not up to your expectations. Although we cannot control it, I do want to apologize for any inconvenience that was caused by the noise from any of our neighboring bars and restaurants as well. We hope that in the future, you would give us a second chance. All the best, Katie Sampson Director of Operations The Volare
