“La Qunita does it again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Just stayed here one night, got in early, did'nt know if they would have a room ready but they did. Went to the room and it was very clean. The card on the desk said our maid was Elvira. Big shout out to her, job well done. The room is spacious and the only draw back was the constant highway noise. Nothing you can do about it except turn the TV on. The assitant manager was very nice as well. Had trouble using the business center computer so he allowed me to use his computer.

This is a nice place to stay. Very nice neighborhoods in the area, very safe and secure feeling when walking our dog. nice grounds and good parking. The freeway is quite close, but we never heard any traffic noise at all. Got very restful sleep. We will return and request the same 3rd floor room because we could see a little view of the ocean!! Very nice place. Handy to all attractions and friendly staff.

I was pleasantly surprised at the upgrades in this property. The hotel is an older property that has been completely refurbished. My room was nicer inside than many 4 star hotels I've stayed in, very modern, very fresh. The room was impeccably clean. The rooms are exactly as pictures on the website.

The hotel is quite near the beach, maybe 5-10 minute walk (South Carlsbad State Beach).

The free breakfast is great, waffles, fruit, cereal, juice, coffee, milk, muffins, etc. It is a nice amenity when traveling.

There is not much around the hotel as far as restaurants, bars, shopping etc. It is pretty residential. There is one shopping plaza about 2 blocks away but generally just a grocery store, drug store and a few other shops and restaurants.

There is a washer/dryer on premises for guests, which is nice for longer stays. Free and ample parking. There is a swimming pool (very small) and hot tub. I did not use either but I did observe that many guests did use them.

The staff is very helpful and responsive. My first night there was a fairly loud argument outside my room at 3:00 a.m. I called the front desk and within seconds, the manager was there and took care of the problem. No other issues the entire stay.

Room Tip: The back of the property is adjacent to the freeway (5 South) and apparently the rooms are noisy. I...

The only reason this wasn't excellent was that the air-conditioner was unpredictably loud. It would be fine for quite a long time, then it would rattle like crazy. We got a very good price on Orbitz, and we stayed for 6 nights. It was a very good location, not on the beach, but very close. I would definitely stay here again. The breakfast was well stocked with lots of choices. We never had trouble with finding a seat. We really loved having the refrigerator and microwave! There was even an iron and ironing board!

We have stayed in this area for 9 years when visiting family, and have tried each hotel except one on this strip. This is by far the best the rooms are updated. There is an exercise room, a laundry room and it is close to beach and coaster, outlets and restaurants. We have been staying here exclusively the past couple of years. And you can get a good deal on rates. We stay from 10 to 20 days each visit and have not had a problem.

Room Tip: Choose the upper floors, then you won't hear anyone walking over you. There is an elevator.
