4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2010

Stayed here Oct 2009 and Oct 2010. Rooms clean. Beds great. Pool and hot tub were good. Breakfast was the usual stuff for places like this. Similar to BW's. Room AC runs constant when turned on. This is great.....don't get woken up like with other AC's going on/off all night. Good value. Will stay here again.

Good value for a couple nights. Not the best hotel ever but clean and pretty quiet (we stayed there in January). Breakfast fast okay too.

I have stayed at many La Quintas around the country and have a frequent stay account. This was by far the worst La Quinta that I have stayed at and the staff was not friendly, efficient or considerate of my family's travel needs. The breakfast sitting area was around 85 degrees and made for an uncomfortable breakfast experience. They offered... More

This place is not up to normal La Quinta quality. Both mattresses were well past their expiration dates. The room was small, cramped and had a foul odor (although it was otherwise spotlessly clean). The parking spaces in the parking lot are way too narrow. Basically, this would be a fairly decent Motel 6, bit as a La Quinta, it's... More

First of all this is an Inn. One step above a Motel so you couldn't really expect 5 star type resort style service.Yes your room will likely face the parking lot, but hopefully not the freeway. Stating that however it's actually nicer then I expected. The rooms were dated but clean. A empty fridge, microwave and coffee maker were there... More

Ice machines all broken in my building - they charge you three bucks to do a single load of laundry, my room faced an auto shop so I got to listen to air wrenches all day and into the evening. The hallways were filthy, the room layout is awkward and cramped, my TV had an enormous hum that overpowered the... More

For the price you pay the hotel is nice, the room is a little smaller than the other la Quintas I've stayed in. There were a few issues with the room, mainly the remote control to the tv wasn't working and there were bloody marks on the curtains covering the windows. We arrived late at night and left early the... More

Booked directly with the motel. Their check-in time is 1 PM. I got there at 2 P.M. and they said I'd have to wait for my room to be cleaned. Didn't appreciate the false advertising. The motel was very hard to get to. Luckily, I know San Diego fairly well and found a way to get to it (their directions... More
