“It ain't NO Continental Breakfast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2010

The title San Clemente Beach is a fraud because it's a LONG Way to the Beach. The location is just l/4 block to I-5, so LOTS of traffic noise. The management is friendly but they don't have much to work with. The mattress seemed to be new & was very comfortable. We paid $10 more for a room with an Ocean View which could be seen from a balcony overlooking the street & I-5, then a peek of the Ocean.The pitiful "Continental Breakfast" consisted of: 1 pot of coffee, cream & sugar, a plate of croissants, -NO BUTTER OR JELLY- 1 choice of cold cereal & a few apples. NO JUICES, NO choices of cereals. Other Travelodges offer a choice and it is really not necessary to go out for Breakfast; but this breakfast is a joke. I realize the area is very small, but Travelodge really needs to delete the wording Continental Breakfast as this is false advertising at it's best. But the rates are low - you get what you pay for, nothing more.

The nicest, most helpful people run this place... I ruined my room's cardkey a few times when it brushed against my cellphone, and they barely flinched at my (repetitive) stupidity. Just super nice, no-nonsense people all the way around.

Me and a surfing buddy stayed here a week. Too far to walk to the beach with a board, but it was ok. Parking was horrible. It was a room to sleep in, which is about all we did. Clean towels and extra coffee everyday like we asked. Service was fine and the place was cleaned daily. Real close to Pedro's taco stand, and the road behind the hotel leads right there. For a place to sleep, it was fine, but I wouldn't take a family there. for the price it was, not bad. Right off the highway.

I do NOT like to give negative reviews but I wish someone had given me a heads up about this Travelodge. The staff was very sweet and did the best with what they had to work with but at $150 per night (which I was told at check in was a good deal) I was hoping for the room that was described...non smoking with an ocean view. Although the room was designated (indeed the entire hotel) as non smoking, it literally reeked of cigarette smoke. The windows did not open.The smoky curtain covered doors opened onto a deck that was literally over the freeway. My husband and I left the doors open to air out the room but it never actually happened. It was somewhat comical shouting back and forth to each other over the Hwy 101 traffic. .trucks, buses and all. When the clouds lifted on the second day, we finally saw the little peek of ocean way across the freeway. I have to admit though, I felt better about our room when I saw my sister-in-laws on the first floor which looked like a damp black hole. Sorry, I have to give this one a big thumbs down.

We stayed here based on reviews ..... a disappointing stay. First off, they will charge your credit card before you even get the paperwork filled out. We had two rooms, both facing the freeway - which is INCREDIBLY noisy. It was a toss up: turn on the a/c which sounded like a 747 or leave the door open to hear the traffic - not any difference. We did have a nice big balcony, but, again - too noisy to even hear each other talk - this went on most of the night and day. Beds were ok, nothing special. Bathroom was soooooo small that you almost fall into the tub trying to close the door. Bath towels were basically see through and thread bare. You have to sign an agreement that there are no outsiders and parties happening, but then you get a room full of unruly kids next door and they do nothing about them. The walls are also paper thin.

No pool. Rooms are accessed from the inside, however the alley door, which led straight into the corridor was left open all night. There is free parking.

If you're looking for a nice quiet place, this is not it. Not by a long shot. You get what you pay for here.

  • Liked — Free parking.
  • Disliked — Pretty much everything.

Hi,
This is a great place for the business traveler. It is quiet, reasonable, and close to the freeway. I also found the rooms to be very clean. The staff is very courteous and helpful also.

  • Liked — nice staff
  • Disliked — I wish they had a pool and a bigger free breakfast choice.

I've actually stayed at this particular Travelodge twice & both times I had a very nice stay. I got a standard room & was upgraded to the suite (with the jet tub) free, since it wasn't occupied & I was staying for a week. The staff is very friendly and if you ever need something (towels, pillows, soap...etc) they come riht up and give it to you. I had no problems and the room ws spacious and the bed was comfortable. It was not noisey at all, seeing was though it is off of the busy 5 freeway. Very convenient if you need to get somewhere, the 5 is right across the way. There are restraunts and a local grocery store within 5 minutes from the hotel "Ralphs". Right next door there's a "mart", gas station & behind is a golfing range.

I would definitely recommend Travelodge to anyone. They even provide a nice covered parking spot for all customers in there's garage (free of course). I liked it because it was small, quiet & comfy. Stay here!
