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...

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 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...

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...

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...

The hotel itself was very nice. Front desk was very friendly. The rooms were very clean and roomy. Ours was a little musty but not too bad. The location was good, not near beach but ok. If you're familiar with San Diego, it's on Hotel Circle. The breakfast was nice (no eggs), I just wish it had yogurt included. The...
