My wife and I live near here and tend to have dinner and stroll through the lovely streets of Old Town La Quinta at least once a month. There are many restaurants and bars from which to choose for a drink or a casual meal. There are a good deal of nice stores that are open late too. Take a... More

there were a few good restaurants, but all of the stores close by 5:00. I would have liked to walk around after dinner. I would not recommend unless you only want to go out to dinner.

This place has a variety of restaurants to visit with family or happy hour with friends. I love the location, the building structures is a great background for pictures.

This place is so nice, right off the freeway 5 . Take the trolley to down town san diego , or seaport village. Visit old town historical sights . Not far from Sea World. Many places to go from here. Good customer service. Would recommend this place for your vacation stay.

The descriptives go on and on. From the absolutely breathtaking views of the mountains (the sunsets are incredible) to the cute cobble streets of Old Towne, you are immediately transported to the time when this cute little town was it's own paradise, tucked away from the hustle and bustle - far away even from the 'Main travel throughfares'. We live... More

Nothing there at all that appealed to either me or my wife. As hard as I try, I can't think of any reason to spend any time there.
