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...

We booked this hotel as a last resort to get to San Diego for the holiday weekend. The rooms are a bit run down, and parking is a joke. You pay $8 a night for parking and there is barely enough room for the guests' cars. Not to mention the spots are SO small, my Ford Edge barely fit. The... More

I recently took my grandsons to southern California and chose this hotel for part of the trip. I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, comfort, and size of the room. The price was great as well. Add in the free breakfast (which had many choices) and it was a great deal overall.

The hotel is renovated and clean. The breakfast is wonderful. Since it is pet friendly I would suggest a bigger designated space for pets to relieve themselves. Also, a toilet seat cover was missing in our room which made it difficult as my dog kept running to try and get water.

The room was small and the bathroom was hard to get into with the door. The AC unit needed to be cleaned as it had a musty odor. Not bad for the price and location but just a few tweaks could make this a really nice place to stay.

Super clean and modern motel near Mission Bay. Free parking and hot breakfast. Easy to find, near shopping and restaurants of all price ranges. Would recommend to everyone visiting San Diego. Will definitely stay again at this or other La Quinta properties.

stayed there with my family since we were going to visit SeaWorld. It is conveniently close to SeaWorld. The breakfast was packed in the morning but there was definitely a lot to chose from. Not just your regular coffee and cereal breakfast there was eggs and waffles and many other things. The parking is very tricky so anyone traveling I'd... More

We were moderately satisfied with our stay. For what appears to be an older place, the appearance was maintained well. When we first got there, parking is a problem. The parking spots are too close, anything other than a compact car would not fit. Surrounding area to park on the street, questionable . I made the mistake of forgetting my... More

Where to start? The hotel was a nightmare to get into and parking was even worse. They were remodeling, even thought the site said he was remodeled in 2012, and they had 4 spots in the parking garage full of new furniture. That night the room above us was used to assemble furniture for the remodel and it sounded like... More

Nice area, being near Pacific Beach. Kind of sketchy area, located near a storage unit. Smaller than the other La Quinta's, but was not too much of a hassle. Parking entrance and exit is limited and tight. Overall, good for a one-night stay. Never had the breakfast buffet, but always was enticing with the smell upon checking out the next... More
