I find it interesting that the majority of the positive reviews of this place were written by people with only one review on their profile. I find that highly suspicious. I stayed here the night of 8/31/15. I was horrified by my experience. While I was checking in, a hotel guest came into the lobby, very upset. She asked that... More

If anyone is looking for safe,nice, clean, well maintained place to sleep, this is the one. The room rate in Orange County is hard to beat, and access to the highways is great too. Don't expect king type breakfast, but you won't be hungry either.

Stayed at this hotel many times I would recommend to anyone. Clean rooms friendly service and knowledgable staff. A wonderful experience for the cost. Close to all the wonderful things to do in Southern California.

La Quinta Inn is a very simple but classic Hotel to stay in the Costa Mesa area, you have great shopping malls near, the beach is also near and being right behind the highway is very easy to get in and out.

The front office staff is terrible and racist. My tv didn't work. The bathroom door inside my room wouldn't open. Asked to switch rooms but was told that my race wasn't wanted here and told me to check out.

My wife and I are spending our last night at this hotel as I type. Let’s start with the pluses. It is located centrally to where we wanted to visit along the beach cities of Orange and Los Angeles Counties. The room was ok with comfortable beds. That’s it for the pluses. The hotel is beyond poorly maintained. None of... More

I stayed at LaQunita as it has a good reputation around the country and I was recently at a fantastic one in Silverthorne Colorado. I paid a few bucks more than Motel 6 would have cost and figured this would be a cut above. I was sooooo wrong! This motel was horrible. The exterior was totally run down, the other... More

Stayed one night, paid to much for the quality of the room. Everything was clean, just very outdated. Bathroom was especially "old". Wifi worked well, limited TV channels but very close to freeway, gas, food.

The beds were comfy and room was average, not too bad. Property itself is a little worn and the staff seemed overworked at times. The ice machine did not work the entire 5 days of my stay but after speaking with Rob at the front desk at check out he did say that they were in a period of transition... More

when you see the pictures in internet you think this is a good hotel, reality is different. the room was dirty, black feet from the dirty carpet, all ice machines broken, roomkeys do not work, the pool seems a challenge for your immune system, rusty dirty sunbeds, definetively not worth the price, very disappointing, can´t recommend this hotel.
