3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We have stayed at many La Quinta Inns. This one was below the standards we are used to from LQ. It was okay but very shop worn. The breakfast area was tiny and crowded. The bed was very comfortable, though.

The photos I reviewed were exactly what I experienced also. I was needing a place that I could house my dogs so I knew it would be difficult last minute so I grabbed this hotel. I had just stayed down in oceanside la quinta and had such a great experience that I thought this hotel would be like that one.... More

Very comfortable stay, the bed & linens wonderful and the air conditioner worked well. The bathtub had seen better days, but the shower worked perfectly and tub drained well. I was pleased that there was a nice long strip of grass to walk my dog on as well.

I stay at LQ motels when I travel and this motel was just as it should be COMFORTABLE....I loved the stay. The atmosphere was very comfortable and my grandkids really enjoyed our stay at this motel. I would most certainly recommend this motel to any one who visit this town. My grandkids and I were in the area for our... More

I have stayed at this hotel twice. The first time, the front desk assigned another couple to the room I was staying in and walked in on us while we were in the room. Now the second time there is blood stains on the carpet and lights that do not work. By far the worst hotel service and accommodation Ive... More

This is a very dated establishment. A fresh coat of paint was applied within the rooms. The outside of the building could stand a face lift. The receptionist was very professional, friendly, & courteous. Checking in was a breeze. We stayed in room 120 next to the pool. Our room was mostly clean. The bed was comfortable. It had a... More

Sometimes you can put lipstick on a pig and the pig actually becomes kind of attractive. However, it does not change the fundamental animal. Here, this La Quinta is a worn out motel that has certain touches of renovation but not enough. My room (148) greeted me at its doorway with the huge stench of tobacco. The air conditioner was...

The air condition did not work at all. Strong cat pee smell in the room. We had to sleep with the door and window open, so my husband slept on the floor in front of the door. We were told the hotel was at full capacity so were not able to give us another room. Couldn't provide a fan. Unable... More

It's a shame this experience wasn't better, I did my research months in advance and they just let me down. Had purchased a room with 2 queen beds and the hotel overbook & put us in a handicap room at more money, even though it wasn't our fault.
