Moraga, California
Reviewed 12 August 2015

The best thing about the hotel is the proximity to all the wonderful things nearby: beaches, good restaurants, and access to museums and good cultural events. We went to the Pageant of the Masters in Laguna Beach and were able to take surface streets rather than the freeway that we used the rest of the trip. The room was quiet,...

We stayed 5 days as we wanted to spend time at the beach away from the crowd. San Clemente is a great little town full of friendly people with a nice beach and good restaurants. The Holiday Inn was very convenient for this. Despite being directly at the highway, the room was quiet with a good view from the balcony....

The hotel lobby and rooms are very clean and beds are big and comfy. Parking is free as is wifi. The hotel was really difficult to find and our GPS couldn't find it either. Make sure you look on a map before coming! Breakfast is pretty decent and also free. Air con is a bit noisy but other than that...

Wanted to stay in between LA and San Diego as my wife and I would be travelling to both areas.

Nothing special about the grounds. The usual cigarette butts and scuff marks on the low wall in the outdoor area. The pool was covered and had nowhere to sit in the sun. The room was clean and bed comfortable. The staff was friendly and well trained. Make sure you have great directions, because even with a gps, it's difficult to...

Highly recommend. Tricky to find but once you find it so very nice. Updated, hotel feels roomy once you enter and nicely decorated. Pool is on the small side but we didn't have time to use it. Breakfast is super and you can even take your breakfast outside in the courtyard. Cinnamon rolls are to die for. Hotel has a...

This was by far our favorite place we stayed on our recent visit to Southern California! We had purchased this stay through Groupon, and were absolutely satisfied staying here two nights. While it is approximately a 35 minute drive North to Disneyland, my teen son said he wished we could have stayed here instead of the hotel in Anaheim we...

Nicely updated hotel. However it can be hard to find with the only entrance inside the parking lot of a shopping center. Two mapping apps took me to the incorrect location. Tucked away on the top of a hill makes it feel removed from the hustle and bustle below.

I found the Staff very accommodating, and Hospitable. I arrived on April 13, 2015, and have approximately two more weeks remaining in my current residence. I would gladly come back for a vacation stay, as I will miss the Staff including Guzzi, Tesh, Victor, Elizabeth and all the House Keepers.
