“Close enough to San Diego and a great train ride there”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

We've found we can avoid the hassle of traffic and parking in San Diego by staying in Oceanside. The Coaster connection is minutes away and there's also plenty to do in Oceanside. We enjoy the pier, walking the beach, movies, breweries and awesome breakfast at Beach Break on the Coast Hiway! Staff was friendly and made a last minute reservation adjustment.
Not the best breakfast, but we did Beach Break anyway. We usually bring our bicycles, but didn't have time this trip. For the price, this property represents a good value and there's a gentlemen's club right next door ;-(.

Room Tip: Use your LQ awards for good prices and/or upgrades.

Thank for your review of our hotel. We appreciate when a guest takes the time to give us their feedback. I am glad you were able to enjoy all of the fun and interesting things Oceanside has to offer. We have miles of beaches, a revitalized downtown and a beautiful and unique harbor. We have improved our breakfast recently, adding such items as bacon and sausage to the menu. I apologize that our neighbors are an eye sore, but as you will see in all of our reviews, that is all it is. We have not had any problems from them in the 4 years I have been the Manager. We hope to see you on your next visit to Oceanside. Please give us a call if you have any questions or would like to make a reservation directly as we have the lowest rates offered at the property level. Thank you, Andrew Stewart GM

We got quick check in service in and out. Our hotel room was spacious and comfortable. Everything was clean and the room smelled fresh. The only drawback was the heater. It is the typical under the window type with a noisy fan, but it did have a thermostat and we actually didn't use it during the night. (November 2012 stay) The breakfast offered lots of bread choices including waffles and bagels, 3 different kinds of cereals plus instant oatmeal, hardboiled eggs and hot chocolate, coffee and tea. The Carrows restaurant was within walking distance and was a decent place to eat. The hotel doesn't have a pool. It is located next to some type of strip club or adult book store or something - I didn't get a good look because there was a wall between the two properties. It is located conveniently near the freeway, but we didn't hear it at all during the night. I would definitely stay here again.

If you travel with your dogs as we do, you probably share the stress of trying to find a decent place to stay that doesn't penalize you with extra cleaning fees or insult you with inferior rooms. We were so pleased to find the La Quinta Oceanside, located just off of Highway 101. Although the physical setting of the hotel is nothing special, the rooms and pleasant attitude of the staff is exceptional.The rooms seem newly refurbished, are very large, very clean, with convenient amenities like a microwave and refrigerator. The sheets and pillows were of a material and quality usually only found in higher priced hotels, and the staff could not have been nicer or more helpful to us and our two dogs. La Quinta as a chain has a great pet policy, but we have found that properties can vary on room quality. This is one of the best, and it is a short drive to all the neat nearby beach towns that line the coast and one of the best off-leash dog beaches in CA at Del Mar.

Thank you for all of the wonderful feedback. We are a pet-friendly hotel and we do not charge anything extra or put guests in inferior rooms as we do not have any. We only ask that pet owners are responsible for their pets noise and cleanliness. We do, however, clean rooms that have had a pet in them with a special cleaning process to ensure each room is as if a pet was never in it at all. Our spacious rooms are well appointed and the linens and terry are a quality not usually seen in mid-scale hotels. Our philosophy is Hilton quality at affordable prices. For pictures and more information you find us on the internet by searching La Quinta Oceanside. You can also call us directly at 760-450-0730. We look forward to seeing you. Thank you, Andrew Stewart GM.

I enjoyed my stay at the La Quinta Inn in Oceanside because of the quick, efficient check out process. I left in the morning and the employee Melissa was so nice, caring and efficient that I was extremely impressed. I read the recent review about Melissa and found it wrong on all accounts. Melissa was great along with the rest of the friendly staff and so was the breakfast. This is a great location too.

Booked on spec. Huge room, ample parking, clean and everything you need for a short stay. Under a mile from bars and restaurants etc. The tourist office across the street were also very helpful in planning the rest of our trip
