Check-in was not good, had requested a ground floor room and got stuck on the third floor 5 rooms from the elevator. This is after staying at this property for years and a Elite Rewards member, was not offered an upgrade for a different type of room on the ground floor, I was not offered anything except a "oh well"...

Inexpensive in an expensive area, good deals with adjacent restaurant. Helpful staff. Really run down room with peeling enamel in bath, leaking faucets and very noisy guests in parking lot outside. Right next to 405 Freeway but you get used to it. You get what you pay for.

Came here for a conference for the weekend and brought my family along. I'm a frequent traveler and go to many different hotels a month on business for the last 9 years. I can safely say that this is the WORST hotel I've ever been to. NEVER, NEVER EVER go here! I looked at all the reviews of this location... More

Rooms had a bad odor. Dirty carpet. Wi/Fi very poor - did not work at all in the first two rooms I tried. Extremely noisy from 405 highway, even on the back side of the hotel. Unclean, old and a bad experience.

After reading the negative reviews, I still decided to stay based on the fact that the website stated that the properly was newly renovated. In my opinion, the renovation occurred a number of years ago, the carpet and tile were badly stained, the air-conditioner did not work, the bathroom sink didn't drain properly, the beds was very soft and lumpy...

The room was fine, no problems with that. The only problem was that we requested a microwave and refrigerator for the room, as we were going to be staying three nights. We requested these items two months in advance when we made the reservations, figuring that that would be plenty of lead time to ask. In the details about the... More

I like this location because it is close to John Wayne Airport in Orange County and just off of the 405 which makes it easy to navigate around LA. They have one treadmill in the fitness room and a couple of other machines. What I like about La Quinta is that no matter where I go it is very familiar... More

This is the most filthy hotel we have ever stay at. We even compared this with Motel 6. I cannot believe that a hotel like this is actually a La Quinta Hotel. I can remember when La Quinta was a very nice hotel chain with clean rooms. NOT ANY MORE. Take a look at the bathroom air vent...about 1/2 inch... More

I'm a big fan of LaQuinta Inns but unfortunately this particular one is not as nice as others I've stayed, it was my birthday and I had others getting rooms here as well as the location was perfect for where we were going out to celebrate, myself and one of my friends both had issues with our rooms, first mine...

Room dirty, urine and toilet paper in toilet. Long hair in shower surface. No soap or shampoo. One small hand towel that looked used. One bath towel. Carpet not vaccumed. This was the worst room I have every stayed in.
