Pleasant service from front desk and housekeeping. Got the top (3rd) floor, toward back of bldg as I requested on reservation. Room type was Deluxe Two Queens w/Microwave and Fridge- room is small compared to Holiday Inn Express and another La Quinta. Though furniture showed age, it was clean and everything worked. Only toiletries in the bathroom are soap and... More

I am more than happy with the service and hospitality of the La Quinta. I am personally greeted by name from Cho (I think thats the spelling) every time I see her. The entire staff at the front desk are always the highlight of checking in and out. I would also like to thank Willamina from the kitchen staff. She... More

Wow, I was so impressed after reading some of the bad reviews - where did they stay? Not at this hotel. I had a great time. The room was clean, the service was wonderful, and the staff was beyond helpful. Everbody was so nice, I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. I will come back, no question. Especially...

Our extended family had four rooms here for three nights leading up to Thanksgiving Day. The rooms had older furnishings but pleasant decor. The lighting was somewhat dim, except for the excellent lighting in the sink area (which was separate from the bathroom). There were some noise issues. The interstate traffic sounds like a continual dull roar; it did not... More

There are two large buildings, one for pets, one non-pet. I reserved a room thru hotels.com for $75/nite. These are rather old buildings, with rooms much smaller than most La Quntas. The room was kept clean, staff was fine, the breakfast satisfactory. However, we are on the 3d floor of the non-pet bldg. The elevator broke a week ago, on... More

We stayed in the King Suite with two boys. The room was spacious enough for one night and we liked that there was two tvs. The boys were bummed that there was no pay-per-view, we usually let them rent a movie when we stay at a hotel, but there was a DVD player for one of the tvs. We liked... More

This was a reasonably good value and good location for a trip to SD to visit the zoo, go to a wedding and visit SD area attractions. Very typical La Quinta. Breakfast was PACKED with families due to the holiday weekend, so be prepared to wait in line for the waffle station and a table to eat at if you... More

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights all the staff were friendly and helpful. It's not a bad hotel for the price. The first night we had a queen bed and sofa bed for the kids. My eldest (12 year old) woke up in the middle of the night and complained about the sofa bed. He could feel... More

Really nice motel friendly staff and helpful. Checked in on the 9th of august with Phuong on the front desk, very polite and friendly. The room was as described and immaculate, very clean. Underground carpark which kept the car cool during the day very nice extra, no charge too. The breakfast was in a separate dining room and not stuck... More
