We stayed here while I attended a conference. Great location to get to most tourist attractions. Beds were good. Staff friendly. AC worked well. Parking is bad. There is an $8 a night fee to park in tiny spaces. My wife hit a column in the garage trying to pull out one night. The cable tv is horrible. Fuzzy and... More

This is not a good place to stay. Avoid it at all costs. First the parking spaces are very narrow. Those of us with full size SUVs are in trouble. Parking is $8/night. Since when do motels charge for parking? The room they gave me was hot and stuffy when I arrived. The A/C in the bedroom worked, the A/C... More

Great location. Central to all our venues. Awesome front desk staff. Clean and quiet room. King suite room was good size. Breakfast was great with a very nice staff. Very comfy beds. When we checked in there were a lot of cars so I assumed it would be busy and loud. We never ran into anyone in the halls, elevators,... More

Our stay was not what we had expected. The parking lot is very cramped. We have a Ford F150 and it was extremely difficult to menuver the small parking lot and stalls. To turn the corner from the lobby to the parking area we had to back up and go forward a couple of times. All the rows to drive... More

Very clean, super friendly and helpful staff, PET FRIENDLY!! Great breakfast, including hard boiled eggs, quick response to tub not draining, very friendly maintenance supervisor. Comfortable beds, quiet AC unit. Quiet location, quiet rooms, even with a few dogs barking on my floor (the "dog" floor). Would definately stay here again and would recommend to all friends and family.

This hotel is full of unsavory guests. Many of them hang out on the stairways & walkways, drinking beer, and smoking. This hotel claims a 100% non-smoking policy with a $250 fine for smoking. These guests seemed not in fear of being levied this fine, likely due to their fortunes in last night's lottery winnings. The mosh pit in the... More

Excellent stay, great staff, tasty continental breakfast. Due to ComicCon, summer and a couple of other conventions in town rate was very pricey. I will come back but probably offseason when the rates go back to normal.

Hotel is a little on the older side and hasn't been updated in a while. Rooms were clean but felt muggy inside. Staff was friendly. Expected a little more for the amount we paid, but it was ok. Hotel is about 30-35 minutes from the Safari Park and Legoland, and right off the freeway.

I stayed at the La Quinta Inn and Suites in San Diego, CA on Hotel Circle. I would not stay there again. They need to make major upgrades to the rooms. It was near a busy freeway and a not so busy car dealer but the dealership was loud too. The food quality was poor. The faucet leaked all night... More

Not the best, not the worst. A new fee for parking had been added since our previous stay and the cleaning service forgot to clean the restroom, leave fresh towels and also forgot the shampoo/soap. We had to use the towels from the swimming pool so we could shower. The staff overall were very courteous and friendly, but I did... More
