Positives, staff was well trained and very helpful and anxious to correct deficiencies. Great location but freeway access can be challenging. Beds very comfortable and mini-fridge and microwave in all rooms. Negatives, our keys didn't work at check-in so we had to wait at the door for someone to bring new ones, mildew in the shower, breakfast room can easily...

We stayed at the LaQuinta Inn for our family vacation in San Diego. The location was great for day trips to the beach, zoo, Midway, and Sea World, but a car is necessary. The breakfasts were great for our family. The pool and hot tub were clean and fun for the children.

Normal LaQuinta stay only we had trouble receiving towels and housekeeping. Two buildings, but only one breakfast area so not able to take advantage of it as there was no room to sit. Wi-fi kept fading in and out especially in the evenings.

This is a tired hotel in need of a major remodel. Rusty fixtures and sinks. The breakfast needs updated food choices not just waffles, toast and bagels. The staff was very friendly and helpful. However the cleanliness and much needed maintenance issues cannot be overlooked.

Only blemish is that we had no wash cloths. We asked for some and were supplied with more hand & bath towels. Also, the wi-fi was barley existent. Of course we were not there to surf the internet so that was no big deal - just noticeable. I would still recommend this place.

I have never stayed at a worse hotel. The only decent thing was the bed and tv. We walked in our room and their was roaches and other bugs. Other families on our team experienced the same thing! It took them 24-hours to move us rooms. Additionally, they were very inconsistent with late check-out between one family on our football...

Rooms of adequate but minimal size. Bed, shower, cleanliness fine. Wifi shaky. Breakfast: eat once, then eat out. La Quinta is sort of like McDonalds: you can dependably get what you pay for. Don't expect more and you won't be disappointed.
