Over priced for the the hotel/location. Pictures of hotel are very mis leading. Breakfast was OK, nothing special. Elivator and hall ways smelled like smoke and at times had just an overall fowl smell.

The room was beautiful, the bed was soft, and the sheets were clean. That was great. However, I spent $103 for three nights, then $118 and $132 for the last two nights, a Friday and a Saturday. On Friday, my sister-in-law and I were getting dressed, and my boyfriend was ironing his clothes for my brother's graduation. Then the power... More

It is a hard entrance way to find but there is a "In and Out Burger" a short walk down the hill away from the hotel. Needed an easy on and off the highway location to begin the college selection process with younger daughter in San Diego. This hotel is comfortable, the folks at the front desk were quite friendly...

It was a little difficult to find the entrance for this hotel because you enter in an odd way. There was ample free parking which we liked, as many hotels in San Diego charge for parking. Our check-in was simple and fast. Our room was spacious, hotel style, one room. The bed was comfortable and the furnishings and carpeting were... More

Positive: Clean rooms and good cleaning service. The pool was nice and not very crowded. The personell wasl friendly and helpful overall. Negative: unhealthy breakfast, everything was just sugar. The wifi was very poor and when I complained they tried to deny the problem. The location is not good if you don't have a car. Beds were small and one... More

Our stay was very nice. Clean rooms and hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. We even stayed an extra night and they gave us a decent rate. The kids enjoyed the pool and my husband enjoyed the treadmill. We tried to print Sea World tickets and there was a problem with my email and Neil helped us get those... More

We typically stay at the La Quinta chain because we often travel with our dogs. We booked this location in advance and were disappointed upon arrival. First, it is not "centrally located." You have to drive 5-10 miles to get anywhere (zoo, beach, aquarium, shopping). The hotel appears clean, but when we got into our room, our feet were filthy... More

Great staff, but I feel the hotel was overpriced for that night. Clean room, good breakfast, but air conditioning throughout hotel could use updating, would probably stay again if the price was more reasonable and an assurance that the hotel has ample security in case of emergency as there was an altercation that took place and I never saw any...

We have often chosen La Quinta when traveling. We chose this location for it's proximity to the attractions we wanted to see. We booked a suite. A suite in the other La Quinta's means a living area and separate sleeping area. In this location, it means a sleeper sofa beside a King bed. I found this arrangement quite unsatisfactory. The...
