“Great Location - Will Definately stay here again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

Can't beat the Location!! - The hotel is clean and friendly. Parking has a fee but secure. The rooms are clean and spacious. The business center is KEY and a nice amenity - free!! Plus, the breakfast - continental - is free too!! They provide shuttles to local attractions -

Room Tip: great value for San Diego

Had a suite which was nice. It could use updating and better cleaning. La Quintas are dog friendly and boy there were alot here. Stay at different La Quintas alo,t this one had more dogs than all the others put together. Front desk was great. They had coffee all day, nice bonus.
It was crowded and load. People were enjoying the pool. We did have 2 roaches in our room, that we new of.

My daughter and I came to San Diego with our dog and it was a wonderful experience. They had a special area for pets to do their business, which meant other guests were not negatively impacted. The room was clean and easy to find. The breakfast was good and included in your room price. Many in San Diego charged extra for breakfast or provided no breakfast. I was one of those who spent an entire day looking for just the right hotel and after checking out pretty much every hotel in the San Diego area, I decided on this one and have absolutely no regrets. I was a wonderful experience and I look forward to returning to this same hotel again.

Regarding accessible suite on third floor.
The good: Front desk excellent. Room clean and nice, though the bed could have been better. Even room service was good. They brought out the best from the tiny property they have (palm trees, tropical plants, etc).
The bad: Persistent freeway noise makes you feel like you are camping on the emergency lane. Access to/from freeway and parking are a nightmare.

This is the second time my husband and I stayed at this La Quinta. The first time was a wonderful stay. No complaints. This time, however was not as enjoyable. I read about the roaches and did not notice any on the first night we stayed here. On the morning of our check out of our two night stay, my husband noticed a small brown roach crawling on the wall and went behind the picture frame. I was glad to be leaving because I don't think I could have stayed another night knowing there were roaches in the room. Other problems, when we arrived we were given keys to a room that had not been cleaned yet by housekeeping. We were immediately offered another room which had been cleaned. It appears that others have written about roaches and yet the hotel management does not take care of the issue. I guess they are not concerned since they are not the ones staying in the rooms. We will not return to this La Quinta. Too bad because we really enjoyed our stay for the most part, but cannot bare the thought of returning due to the unsanitary condition of the hotel.
