“Nothing Special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

This place has a real motel feel. The breakfast is pretty typical to slightly below average for a hotel in this class, but when I was there it was insanely crowded. Had to eat standing up or take to go both days. The halls are exposed to the elements, which is cool in climates of this type. It rained and the water pooled in the corridors, so I had to tiptoe through it. No one removed it all day. Seemed to occur on several floors. More like what one would expect in countries south of here. The room was good enough, bed comfortable and wi-fi decent. So if you want a centrally locacted place in SD at a good rate. It is worth considering.

The beds were very comfortable and the maid service, price, and location were good. However, the wi-fi didn't work for 4 out of the 6 days we stayed. (To compensate us, they removed the $8/night parking fee.) The toilet didn't flush our first night but was fine afterwards. The breakfast was pretty good but the equipment was not: one of the toasters broke (resulting in a very long line) and the coffee machine in the breakfast room quit working the last day. The staff was friendly but the owners need to update things BEFORE they break.

Front desk is always personable and helpful. They remembered our preferences from previous visits. Our king suite provided much needed space for two young kids. They have their own room and tv. Even when the breakfast room is crowded, food is plentiful. You just need patience. Overall, great value.

The hotel was just okay. Stayed for 2 nights and it was very noisy. Kids running up and down the hallways, slamming doors and banging on ours. Yes, parents were around. I did call down to the front desk. Rooms were very small and the sheets felt damp and the roomed smelled funny. They did forget our towels. Had to go down at 5am to get some. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was standard.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 days during Spring Break. We were shocked at how small the rooms were because we have stayed at a lot of LaQuinta's and this was the smallest. I picked this hotel because of the location and the free breakfast. The hotel is not that far from the airport, Old Town San Diego, Sea World, and Mission Beach. There are a lot of eating places and a nice shopping center within one mile of the hotel. If you don't plan on being in your room that much, than it's ok.
