“Ok for Quick Stay”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

I stayed here for two nights on a vacation. It's located by a major highway, the interstate 405. That's a positive since it's convenient but it's also a negative since you're surrounded by traffic noise. The room was clean and comfortable. The decor was dated and in need of a remodeling. The breakfast was your typical continental, no surprises. Ok for a quick stay.

Room Tip: Pick a room by the pool. Less traffic noise.

This La Quinta was renovated between our last visit and this one and the guest rooms realy reflect the upgrade. The staff is always ready to help and registration and exit were handled very well. We do enjoy the complementary breakfast - starts the day off well and the round-the-clock coffee is a welcome extra. Visitors should be sure and check how you get into the property was it can be a bit tricky - simple once one learns "how". We've used this property several times and have always enjoyed our stay. Good property for the price!

The stay was great and the service was great everything was quick and easy. Beside the little promblem we had when we got there was solve quick but we had the give up the 3rd floor where out family was staying no biggie. Or last night was comp and prices was great I will be staying here ever time im in LA. Had to make more then 3 trip down to the office more then once. A little problem but I don't mind. My key was not working due to left in my pocket next to my cell phone. Over all I had a great time and can't wait to go back. Love how we had drinks before the wedding and was never bother by any staff. It was only 1 in the afternoon but some placeses are jerk and we did not have any trouble.

I stayed on a Wednesday and Thursday night in the fall of 2012. The hotel is sandwiched between the 405 and the commuter rail, so there is plenty of noise to contend with. Pets are allowed, which sounds like a nice thing (I am a BIG dog person!), but then I stayed in a room that shared a wall with 2 small yappy dogs. The extra building that they have out back (the one that ISN'T pictured on their website) is 100% concrete. I suppose it was meant to look like a barn, but what it ended up resembling was a prison. The first 3 floors of rooms in that building are all concrete, gray, cells. No paint, no attempt to smooth out the walls or cement blemishes, it's just a transformed prison cell with a king size bed and TV. Also if you are a non-smoker, do NOT stay here! There is no place to hide from the odor of cigarettes.

I have been a fan of the La Quinta chain, and this experience wasn’t poor enough to put me off of the brand because they have so many other locations that do it right, but this spot is clearly the ugly monster in the basement of their location selections. The one good thing about it is that there were decent dining choices; Jack in the Box, Denny’s and Hooters are right there. But if I needed to stay in that neighborhood again, I’d give the nearby Double Tree a call even though the rates are twice as high.

Room Tip: If you HAVE to stay here, insist on a room in the main building, or the 4th floor of the barn, those...

Very good value, near freeways--we we're visiting UC Irvine--good location. Rooms very clean (as in all La Quintas I've ever stayed). Breakfast not as good as other La Quintas--no fresh waffles.

Hooter's next door can be a bit noisy--there were a bunch of motorcyclists whooping it up in the shared parking lot later in the evening...not dangerous, just loud.

Room Tip: get a room on the opposite side from Hooter's.
