I stayed at this La Quinta while i was visiting my son. We drive from Arizona and got into town early called the hotel and they let us check in early! Thanks a lot for that because i had small children traveling with me. Location is great close to the zoo, Seaworld,mall, beaches and downtown. The front desk staff was... More

I was very happy with the room. Very clean and quiet. Everyone on the staff was friendly and helpful. Convenient location for Seaworld, Zoo, Balboa Park, The Mission, USS Midway, Coronado, etc. Nothing was more than about 15 minutes drive away. Breakfast was waffles, toast, bagels, bananas, apples, cereal, hard boil eggs, juice and coffee - could have used some... More

OK if you have a pet and you have a good back! There are many, many hotels in S.D. that are just as close to tourist locations as this one. We live in SD and had to move out for termite tenting with our pet, we were near the elevators and the breakfast rm (crowded), so we had many noisy... More

Staying in San Diego near the Zoo or Sea World - this motel is handy. It is easy to navigate about this city and this La Quinta is so convenient. They also takes pets at NO charge! The breakfast is an extended breakfast - though wish they had yogurts as may do! They also have an outside pool and hot... More

Old and seedy. Badly in need of ...everything. Cramped parking, aging rooms, musty smells. Fuzzy television reception, a toilet that my husband had to fix a musty odor in the room. Bad experience overall and we will be looking elsewhere next time we spend a few days in San Diego.

Great value, excellent accommodations and superb location for that area. Comfortable stay. Roomy in the King rooms and I didn't notice any road noise. There is a nominal parking charge. But, all the hotels have such nuisance charges now in this area.

Our SEVENTH personal-travel extended stay at this location due to it's proximity to family and central SD freeways(and therefore everything SD), and affordable rate incl breakfast, internet, pool, laundry, parking. Usually stay at Hilton or Wyndham on business trips; so, like the somewhat experienced traveler, I understand hotel cost to value trade-offs. Also, I don't hesitate to require remedies to... More

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... More
