We weren’t told anywhere when we booked that it was a huge time share place and that on sundays you have to wait to be called to check in. We were number 52! Also, we were told we could not check in or our room wouldn’t be available until after 4:30 or later. We were only staying one night and that seemed a bit bizarre to me. I feel people that aren’t staying for extended amount of time should be checked in first and have priority. I mean we spent a chunk of our vacation day sitting and waiting in the lobby. Ridiculous! I feel this info should be listed somewhere. And when I did get to check in the employee wansnt overly friendly and didn’t offer much info. She seemed more annoyed that I was asking question and asked for a quiet room (since you can pick). Also the room was dated and the sheets were worn.
The amenities around the hotel
Have a coffee station in the lobby.
Very Clean and well maintained throughout. Extremely convenient to the beach and center of San Clemente.
Check in can be as late as 4PM but check out is by 10 PM with a charge of $50 per hour after that if you are running slow. We were accommodated with a check in at 1 but in order to do that, you have to return to the property and "pre-check In"... Coffee supplied in room is nasty. Why bother offering it???
I liked that there were so many amenities offered and that the location of the inn was so close to the beach.
There were ants in our room. The room we were given was not the same one advertised in the online pictures. The room we got needed an update. The closet was behind two doors making it an awkward, tight, and pretty much inaccessible storage area (We had to leave our clothes in our suitcases.) Amenities were all taken up by kids (billiards, mini golf, pool, etc.) Pool hours did not account for an "adult swim time." The bar was small. And THERE IS NO GUEST ELEVATOR..we had to carry all of our luggage up and down stairs.
Landscaping Grounds are maintained nicely. Rooms are very decorative and modern. Great price for all that’s included. Beach very close by. This is our 3rd family beach trip. My 4th time here. Will continue to make it a yearly destination. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Had some issues with my credit card and they worked around that.
We arrived Friday night. Come Saturday morning we noticed there was an awful smell in the hotel. We blamed it on the meat packaging in the trash from cooking dinner the night before. However after throwing the trash out the smell was still there. As we searched the entire room we went to open the closet door in the master suite, there was gut wrenching smell of death. Maintenance came to inspect and said it was mice season and there was probably a dead mouse behind and in between the walls. The walls would have to be knocked down. We were offered to change rooms but we had all our groceries in the fridge and there was too much of our stuff to move for the 4 of us. Such an inconvenience to move to a different building. We kept the closet door closed and the ceiling fans going full blast thru our stay until Sunday morning. Also the pool/jacuzzi hours should be extended by at least an hour for adults.
