my wife and I came out for our son's graduation from USMC Boot Camp.
The staff at LQ is wonderful - they provided all the info we needed about getting on MCRD and about the family day and graduation. The room was nice. If there is anything to complain about it's that the room for breakfast was a bit small.

We booked a room at this location using United miles and planned to stay with my family of five after a day at Sea World. A few weeks before the trip our plans changed and I called ahead and asked to move our reservation three days back. The person on the other end of the line said she had moved our reservation and that it would not not be a problem. I wrote down the time, daye and name of the person I spoke with.

However, when we arrived our reservation cold not be found. After being asked to wait 30 minutes while other guests checked in I was told I would have to pay for a new room. I went around the corner to the Western Inn and found a less expensive room with the same location and better service.

This is the best location no need to rent a car if you stay here
they pick you up from the airport and bring you back
the public transportation is 6 blocks away and the staff helped us
except the 7-3 worker she said she was too busy checking folks out and checking folks in to
go the extra mile for anyone. so get your advise from the 3-11 gal that was her specialty
we had trouble with a reservation the 7-3 lady could have said too bad so sad
but the guy working on the morning we had the issue took control and ta da solved it with expedia on the spot.GREAT breaskfast but get down b4 9 they have no exceptions
the 7-3 gal did not budge on the matter did not bother us but late sleepers it did but rules are rules. Clean the hot tub was not real hot.
but this was close to old town
so if you got done for the day you could always walk up there to complete you day
I would say for the adverage JOE like us not the upper class this is the deal of the day
it was 89.99 plus tax the best buy in San Diago.It was very quiet.I never give anything a perfect rateing then there is no room for improvement and besides one personality it would have been perfect.

.

Room Tip: we had a king size bed

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at our hotel, as it helps us improve our service. The hotels location is great. Our complimentary shuttle to and from the airport runs from 6am to 8pm. San Diego city public transportation is 6 blocks from the hotel with an average of 15 minutes in walking distance.

HIGHPOINTS:

Walking distance to Old Town and surrounding hilly community and close to rail station.

Basic Euro-style continental breakfast offerings with plenty seating space

Very close to on/offramps with the 5 freeway, a big plus if you plan to be using the motel for staging point of multiday vacation (family,sightseeing)



LOWS:

Bad Wi-Fi signal capture - frustration and futility

Parking space underground with super tight allowance, space limited, bad during peak season.

No desk in room and tightly cramped

Broken off temperature regulator knob in room refrigerator

Bathroom could use some fixes

Room Tip: Bring your own multi-prong outlet, sound from nearby freeway wasn't a factor.

Good breakfast.
The room - 301 - was rather small - otherwise a 4 would have been considered.
This room was ' the only King available' after booking in advance.
It was however clean and had a comfortable bed.
