This motel is right next to a VERY noisy freeway AND.. a Hooter's.. so if you LIKE Hooters then by all means, come on in. The motel is .. well, on the inside it's clean and tidy.. on the outside it looks like a dive and some of the walkways were sticky with soda...but for the rest, then again it's... More

I read the bad reviews and expected the worst. What I found was a perfectly adequate La Quinta. Maybe on the more run down side of things, but my room was fine. No smells, no stains, no mildew, maid service every day. Yeah the parking lot attracted a varied crowd, there were definitely people smoking pot out there and I... More

Hotel really needs to be upgraded. Bathrooms had mold in tub and did not appear to be cleaned. The beds are very small - they seem to be smaller than a full size bed. Room size was adequate to get an extra blow up on the floor. Front desk staff checked us into a King bed room when there were... More

We stay here often when traveling to the Huntington/Newport beaches. It's close to a lot of grocery stores and a quick drive to the beaches/beach towns. Staff is friendly and rooms are clean. Great value!

I stayed here for a few nights as part of a large group. We had read the negative reviews here and were quite concerned prior to arrival. My room was ok, it smelled like old motel, which brought back memories of family trips when I was a kid. The bathroom in my room was pretty gross with mildew and long... More

Worst experience in a hotel. the mold threw me overboard as our son has asthma!!! They had no extra rollaway beds and the rooms stunk like sweat. Would never stay at this La Quinta ever again. It needs a sever overhaul. They allow pets and rooms were plain and dirty feeling.

La Quinta is the place to stay when you're looking for comfort and affodability. Their knowledgeable and friendly staff have always made our stays special. This is why we look for the nearest La Quinta when travelling. It truly is our home away from home. All of this and breakfast included.

I spent a cold night with a not properly functioning heating unit which was partially remedied on the second night. The front desk staff did try to help as best she could. I paid for the first night and used points for the second. I should get a reinstatement of my points
