We have been coming to the San Clemente area for a number of years and love it. Our only problem was finding a nice hotel in the area. Last year we stopped by the Hampton Inn to check it out for future visits. The hotel was clean, bright and the personnel were incredibly pleasant and helpful (not to mention the daily fresh baked chocolate chip cookies in the lobby)! When we returned this year with friends, we each booked our 3-night stays here and were all thrilled. The suites were clean, comfortable with all the extras that made our stay a wonderful experience. We never really sat out on the balcony but it had chairs and a small table that was nice. The bed was unbelievably comfortable and the room was very quiet. It was an extremely nice surprise to find that the comforter/duvet on the bed was placed inside a cover (like a giant pillow case) that was freshly washed each time (so often hotel reviews encourage customers to remove the bedspread/comforter because they are not cleaned between customers). The bedroom had its own door to separate from the rest of the suite for privacy/sleeping. The front "room" had a chair and couch that opened into a second bed although we did not use it. There was a real nice refrigerator/freezer that was roomy and worked great, as well as a microwave, coffee maker, etc. Although we didn't eat there, we did warm up some leftovers in the microwave. We ate each morning in their lovely breakfast bar. The food was excellent and different each morning. Fortunately the delicious waffle maker was there each time, we loved it! We have found our place to stay in an area we visit a few times each year. Our friends had the same experience we did and all will stay here again. Thank you Hampton Inn. Everyone we encountered there was wonderful and friendly and we look forward to staying there in the future!

a pleasant suites hotel that is a short distance from the downtown craziness. Close enough to everything, but far enough where you are not in the hustle and bustle. The staff was very friendly and made you feel very welcome. Pool was a bit small, but everytime we passed it , the kids and adults were having fun. Did not make it to breakfast, but our friends said it was good. Would stay here again.

Our friends were camping at Camp Pendleton over Labor Day weekend. We had no desire to camp in the heat wave Southern California was experiencing, so we booked a one bedroom suite at the Hampton. The property is about 2 miles from the San Onofre/Camp Pendleton beaches.

We arrived around 3:30pm (we had just left Pala Casino earlier that day). The ladies at the front counter were very nice. Originally, they put us in a room on the second floor, but it did not have a balcony and it faced the 405. We went back down and they were able to move us to room 214, also a one bedroom suite, but it was considered an upgrade, as it was considered an "executive suite". It was quite nice and it had a balcony that looked over the golf course.

The beds were typical Hampton comfy. There was a wet bar that included a microwave and a fridge. We did not use the microwave, and the fridge - well it FROZE everything we put in it. frozen waters, frozen limes, frozen grapes, frozen OJ. Not a big deal as far as we were concerned. The bathroom sink was next to the wetbar, in the bedroom area. The toilet and the basic size tub/shower combo were separated by a door. Everything was very clean, but the tub isn't exactly a bubble bath tub. BUT - we were staying there in order to be with our friends at the CP campground during the day. It was very nice to come home after a long day in the sun, smelling all sea salty and campfirey, and take a nice COLD shower. The weather was sooo hot over the weekend.

We slept in an A/C room whilst our friends were sweating it out in tents and campers. Truly, one of our better plans!

We ate breakfast two of the mornings. Standard brekky fair - eggs, bacon, ham, toast, etc. Hay it is good and it is FREE.

We told the housekeeper each day that we did not need them to service the room (still tipping $5 of course). We didn't see the point as we weren't there except for sleepy hours.

We will definitely stay here again. In fact, I think we will stay here at the end of September for a birthday party that is being held at the irish pub two blocks away.

Well done again Hampton Inn!

Stayed here for a wedding, good hotel, always love how Hampton inns have a good breakfast. Location was really good, right off I-5 and very convenient to the cool little downtown of San Clemente. Beach access is pretty close, maybe a mile away or so. There is a golf course on the back side of the hotel that is nice. There is a parking garage under the hotel. The is also a small pool that faces towards the golf course.

Room Tip: Rooms either face the golf course or towards the ocean

We have family in the area and have stayed here several times.
Hotel is very clean, well taken care of, teriffic staff. During our last stay they were replacing all the mattresses and couches in the rooms.
The hotel is in a very central location, easy access to RT 5, several places to eat within walking distance.
OC Tavern was probably our favorite!!
We spent many days/evenings on main street shopping and the pier area in San Clemente which is about a 5 minute drive with parking along drive or at the pier area.

Room Tip: We have stayed on the top two floors facing the view toward the ocean. Its not an ocean front hotel...

nice hotel, nice rooms, comfy beds, good amenities. The hotel was nicely renovated and who doesn't like a free real breakfast in the morning. I would stay here again if I was doing anything nearby. The price I felt was a bit high, but that's just my opinion. If you can get a room for a decent price I would say go for it!

We stayed here in mid August. I am always looking to stay in a hotel that has a separate bedroom (suite) since my kids are so young and still nap during the day. This was my first time staying at a Hampton. I usually stay at Homewood Suites. I prefer Homewood, but this Hampton was clean and the staff was very friendly. The room was clean and the beds were not as comfortable as I hoped (we had two double beds). But, the staff was great and the breakfast is so convenient when you're traveling with two small children. What I appreciate is the variety of items for breakfast: waffles, yogurt, fruit, oatmeal, eggs...tons of stuff! This is not your continental breakfast. I also appreciated the late check out (you have to ask for it and also be a Hilton Honor member). But, walls are very thin, I could conversations and other things I prefer not to hear in the middle of the night!

This was our first time staying in San Clemente, and we really liked the location of the hotel. You can't walk to the beach, but it's only about a 5 minute drive and the beach parking is only $2 hour. also, the pier is about a 15 minute drive so it was definitely convenient. I guess I was expecting a little more for the price we paid - not sure if this is because I'm comparing it to Homewood. Lastly, the pool is VERY small. It states 15 is the maximum capacity. So those looking for a big pool, this is not the place. Nonetheless, I would recommend this hotel to people who are looking for a family atmosphere.

Room Tip: Front rooms face freeway but you get a sunset and the ocean view rear rooms face golf course but yo...
