Bathroom clean. Room had filthy carpet, smelled like animals, furniture old and beaten down, also dirty and smelly. Asked for sheets to cover all the furniture. Towels were scratchy. Was happy I brought my own sheet, blanket and pillows.

Hotel with nice, friendly front desk personell. Room was a little dated, in need of paint, and electrical outlets. Room was well equipped with Frig, Microwave, flat screen TV. Breakfast was more than adequate.

We needed a midpoint stop on this journey and chose this hotel. Previously we had stayed at La Qunta at Santa Ana and were not thrilled with that one so tried another in the area. The hotel room was clean but the carpets needed a good shampoo. The bed was comfortable as are all La Quinta beds - at least... More

The breakfast sucks hahaha but you get what you pay for . I would rather have no breakfast and be treated nice. House keeping even is... More

The staff was very friendly, but the grounds were dirty, there was odors and the room is just fair. I would not recommend this hotel. The location was fair, at the time of arrival from the Orange County Airport, the shuttle was down. They did however pay for the cab ride to the hotel.

We always stay at La Quinta due to their pet policies, even when not traveling with a pet. The breakfast is adequate. Rooms are reasonably clean for the age of the building. All open to common outside walkways, like older motels. Noise is an issue, since this location is directly next to busy freeway. With the door & windows closed... More

I usually love LaQuinta but this one they should be ashamed to even attach their name to it. Strike One: On arrival, I'm given a third floor room. I haul all my bags up the stairs (I don't mind stairs. They are a good workout) and find that the key doesn't work. I called the front desk from my cell... More

I gave them 4 years to get their act together, but NO! That time for 4 days, the elevator was being fixed in the morning! Never happened, we left and it was still broken. But, time heals all wounds! Well, I spend a lot of time on the road and mostly at "nice" La Quinta's around the country. I have... More

The room had bugs in it and smelled awful. We were woken up to the smell of smoke at 5 in the morning. The outlet between our beds was shooting sparks out of it and nearly caught on fire by the time we left the room. What an inconvenient experience.
