“Very clean”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

We enjoyed our stay. Of course we were pretty much just sleeping there, so we weren't looking for a place to hang out. We found our room to be very clean as well as the exterior of the hotel. The staff was very nice and helpful. Really only dealt with the front desk, as we rarely saw other workers. I know they were there because the cleaning was done.

The hotel building is pretty old, and if you get a top floor, and easily get motion sickness, just be prepared. It felt like the building was swaying and I often felt nauseous.

It would have been nice if the king suite had a door between the living area and bedroom. With the layout we had, it easily could be done, but would be a disadvantage to anyone staying on the sofa bed to use the bathroom.

My only complaint is breakfast. It is the same diabetic nightmare over and over. I chose this hotel because they advertised a hot breakfast each morning, I'm thinking scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage. It is nothing more than a continental with waffle irons. As a diabetic, I try to watch the carb and sugar intake. They only thing I could eat there was cold hard boiled eggs. After two days of that we went to the cafe up the street, I needed meat.

The hotel did seem to be an 11-12 min drive from every thing. Zoo- 12 min, downtown 11-min, Qualcomm 12-min. Beach was 10 min.

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 very accommodating! The young lady who checked us in Shay, happened to check us out as well and she was very friendly. She had great customer service! The pool was nice as well! We will stay at this location when we visit San Diego again! Thanks again!

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 yogurt at least. Lots of nearby restaurants a couple minutes drive away, but would be a pretty long walk. Parking was $8, and tight if you are stuck with a spot in the garage. I'd certainly stay here again.

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 people walking a few inches away from our windows to the rm. Oh, and ventilation was not so good.

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 tub! Nice place for the value.

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.
