We stayed two nights. The first night we had someone about 1 in the morning screaming and crying outside in the parking lot. The location is good and the breakfast was your typical waffle machine, some fruit etc. Like I said, it was an OK hotel for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Easy access to highway"
They upgraded us to a king suite at no extra charge. Greatly appreciated the upgrade. Bed too soft and pillows way to small and soft. Overall it was a good experience. Good breakfast. Great parking situation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed for only one night, and it was a good place to stay. The room was clean, and that's really all we want right. The building was older, but nothing to get upset over. The AC worked, and the bed was comfortable. The pillows were small, but there were like 4 per bed, so made up for it. We brought our own pillows and towels, though, because that's […] something i prefer to use of my own. The breakfast was decent. Waffles, bagels, apples, bananas, cereal...basic, but included so who's complaining. Not me. :) The front desk personnel were very nice. Yes parking is $8/night, but in San Diego that should not be unexpected. Most hotels charge parking, and this was cheaper than most. All in all nice stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Spent 5 nights and everything went smooth. Highly recommendGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the Zoo"
The hotel room was very pleasant. The only thing I would recommend for the hotel to look into is the how the bath tub feels like it's giving. Also might want to look into a full length mirror. The room itself is a tight squeeze as well but overall nice for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great stay. All faciliites were clean and well maintained. Breakfast was more than adequate with good choices and well stocked. Would stay here again. Price was reasonable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"San Diego trip"
First two nights...neighbors were horribly loud and smoked outside our door. We contacted the front desk and the gal moved us the second night (when we finally called aobut it) right away, even bringing the key to the new room up to us. The overall stay was wonderful. Breakfast was mediocre though. Two days we did not get more than one washcloth with […] the new towels. No regular coffee in our room the final two days. Otherwise good. Our main complaint is with Expedia for not informing me that there would be an $8.00 per day parking fee added to our bill! This is outrageous! How can a hotel charge to park our car in their lot???? We will never stay in a hotel that charges us nightly parking again, I can assure you that. $40.00 extra doesn't make the room rate all that great, does it?! This should be spelled out in black and white and should be a part of the total bill so we really know how much it costs us. It was not disclosed until we arrived in the hotel. BAD!!!

Came for 1 night business. Had spent three nights the previous week in old town SD so I wanted something cheaper this time. The room was clean, fridge, microwave, etc. The front desk was nice and courteous. Honestly can't say much other good things. It's really noisey, can hear people passing in the halls, walking above you, other doors shutting. Etc. […] Thats my one big annoyance while in a hotel and it was in abundance here. The I-8 is so close so it's easy to get anywhere (beaches shopping etc) in SD within minutes. A lot of restraunts nearby. $8 a night to park? Eh. If your just wanting something cheap to put your stuff and attempt to sleep at night then it's cool but if you do plan to actually be in the room a lot and relax or whatnot then i'd say spend extra and go elsewhere :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
comfortable!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had issues with my door keys. The second night they up graded my room. Its place to sleep and thats about it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"SOOOO PRETTY! MORE BANG FOR MY BUCK!!"
I loooove love this place! The room was so pretty and clean I felt so relaxed! Beautiful new bedding and spacious room it fit us 4 very comfortably. What I love is that our room was right next to outdoor portion of their parking lot so very easy access to our car! Unlike other hotels that you have to valet and wait for your car for like ever. All in […] all I loved my stay at la Quinta!! Amazing prices for beautiful rooms! Will definitely be staying here again for our next trip! :D Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice place to stay, a little noisy because of the freeway, but worth the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was friendly at check in. Room was clean. Breakfast room was more of a closet. I don't know how they expect guests to enjoy their food in such tight quarters. The noise from people running up and down the corridor, slamming doors and yelling made sleeping nearly impossible. The morning after all the noise the corridor was littered with cigarette […] butts. Apparently there is no security walk thru at night. I would not stay here again. Also on Expedia website parking was stated as free and I still had to pay $8 per night at the hotel.

I can't say enough good about my stay at La Quinta. The front desk and service staff were very friendly and welcoming, the room was very clean and comfortable and the location was great - very close to North Park, Hillcrest and downtown San Diego.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Never go wrong with LA Quinta"
Stayed here for a night. Room was spotless, clean, and perfect. Front desk employees were very friendly and helpful. Easy to get to and close to everything. You won't regret staying here... I will stay here again for sure!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okay but not a Suite"
Thought we were getting a true suite. Picture shows a wall and a doorway. It doesn't show a door, as there is no door between the two rooms. Very disappointing. On the other hand, it was surprisingly quiet, despite being near a freeway and very full that weekend. Breakfast buffet was crowded, but the make-your-own waffles are always a crowd-pleaser. […] Room was not cleaned well and we received a dirty towel once. Staff made up for it when we told them. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Terrible Experience!! Very Badly Managed!"
It takes a very bad event for me to voice a negative comment, but this hotel has deplorable customer service. 70 rooms were booked to a biker club! The noise of 70 bikers revving their engines at all hours outside one's hotel door on Harley bikes is not pleasant. I spoke to the front desk, they said others had complained. My earplugs were useless to […] the noise. The next morning, I saw the police talking to the bikers, but they were not evicted. I again complained, and the front desk said there was nothing they could do because 'head office' had booked the rooms (Lame excuse) . The loud engine revving went on ALL DAY and Night the second day. I said to the desk that if I disturbed other guests in the same manner, they would have kicked me out in two minutes, but obviously management did not want to act on 70 rooms. I asked for management to contact me. They never did. We could not go to another hotel since it was a long weekend , and every place was full. The front desk said that I would need to take it up with "Hotels.com" since they took my money. This is all very unacceptable. I am the customer, and I should not have to determine who is ultimately liable for a rotten stay. Even the sad front desk staff agreed that management at this hotel is inept to their constant pleas for help. WARNING: When you book a stay at this hotel, please hope that nothing goes wrong, because apparently you are on your own. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overall was what I expected for the price"
Staff was nice, room was clean and comfortable enough. The continental breakfast was very crowded. They could really use another toaster! It was jamzilla at the toaster! Muffins or doughnuts would have been nice for grab and go type food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A mistake made it better"
The hotel was very good. Every place I needed to go was nearby. Large shopping center across the street with many places to eat. Desk clerk mistakenly booked me into a model room, so that made it even better! $8/night for parking was a major downside, though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Near freeways and Balboa Park"
Rooms are older but clean. Staff was great. Property is close to shopping and restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Find! Great Location!"
We had no idea what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised. The place was a bit on the older side, compared to many La Quinta locations, but the room we had was redone with nice "mission" and/or "craftsman" style pieces (or nice replicas perhaps) that really fit the character of the age of the building. It was a really comfortable place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent hotel and very nice lOcation if you want to go to sea world or zoo. Rooms were clean and breakfast was descent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Value going down"
Has been a convenient location and reasonable value. But now before 9am the breakfast room is a zoo with no seating, and they have started a daily charge for parking; at a motel. I will be shopping around for our next visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place in a reasonable price range"
Stayed at the La Quinta for 5 nights. Room was very clean, bed and pillows comfortable. The first morning discovered the blow dryer did not work, maintenance responded within 5 minutes with a replacement dryer. Amenities are minimal but staff are willing to provide when asked... I requested additional coffee in the room and they left 3 extra. Very friendly […] and responsive staff. They obviously put a lot of work into keeping the place well maintained. The pool was great!!! A very warm, large, outdoor pool with hot tub. Breakfast was the standard waffles/cereal/toast. Coffee in the breakfast room was not very good. One biggest complaint - the WiFi was slooooww. Don't plan on getting any work done with it. Great place for the price and it met my need for just a place to sleep really well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good for the Price"
Hotel was in good distance to the airport and restaurants. Room was clean and decent. Stayed for 4 nights and the room was cleaned everyday. Love the pressure of the shower head and the water temp. Front deskstaff was a little rude. Overall was okay experienceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Not bad. But just not very nice either. Too close to the freeway noise, breakfast just adequate and too crowded.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay there again"
Staff was very friendly. The room clean and spacious. The breakfast buffet was a plus. Overall I would stay at this location again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"nice and close to the zoo."
This place needs major improvements. Room had nasty stained walls, bathroom/shower were falling apart. Kudos to the employees they were super nice, but I would not stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Booking at La Quinta inn we knew we were not getting anything fancy. They do have a free breakfast but was very basic. The hotel is older but worked great for us. The location and the price were great. Its 5 min from down town and the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Didn't live up to photos on web. Room stunk and just didn't feel comfortable. Old and outdated - everything. Wasn't horrible but wouldn't stay there again or recommend.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Needs an update"
Elevators don't work half of the time, plumbing is shoddy. Service is good though - nice people who have a smile and understand they are there to ensure you enjoy your stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"three days in Dan Diego"
hotel was very nice. great location. Had problems with tv reception in one room, which, after an hr. or so it was fixed. The staff was very helpful, front desk Great. My second night after being out all day came back to find my room had no towels! Our second room, for my Mother had no bath mat or wash cloths. After a call to the front desk all problems […] solved. The third day was much better. Over all it was a nice stay. The breakfast room was large enough for all the guest, so we weren't all walking all over each. good variety of choices to eat. We were upgraded to a suite for free when checking in. When making the reservation I was told it would be $20.00 a nite fee for an upgrade. So it was nice of them to upgrade us for free. There is an $8.00 a day parking fee which I did not know at the time of booking, so that was a surprise. The room as comfortable and clean. Noise was not an issue. over all a nice place to stay.

"Good value for last minute reservation"
We had planned on driving back to Phoenix, however after a long fun day/weekend, we decided to stay one last night and found La Quinta at a decent price last minute. I had stayed at the La Quinta in Carlsbad in June, so I knew the brand. The front desk staff was very nice and check in was quite easy and painless. We liked the location. It was close […] to restaurants and to the freeway for an easy getaway in the morning. The only knock would be the bathroom door. It had a crack in the panel on top which caused a loud noise every time it had to be opened/closed. The top of the door didn't seem to fit its frame very well as there was a wide space between the top of the door and top of the frame. It was quiet though and did the job we needed it to do - give us a room where we could rest the long Sunday away and be refreshed for a 6 hour drive home. Also - out of the three hotel rooms we stayed in over the weekend this bed was by far the least comfortable but I'd stay here again given the staff friendliness (which goes a LONG way with me), the location, and the price I paid for what I got/needed.

The staff was very kind and helpful; however, the heater did not work and there was only one extra blanket available. The front desk was kind enough to bring up a blanket. Parking was very limited in the late evening. For the money it was a decent stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lack of customer service and appreciation!!!"
2 Days without water!!! we needed to wake up very early in the morning to take a shower, very inconvenient!!!, not ones the manager gave his or her face, very unprofessional.Genuine Expedia guest review
The breakfast was the biggest disappointment with our stay. It was a joke! Very crowded and food ran out (and was not replaced). Do not plan to eat breakfast, and don't let it be a factor in deciding to stay here. Parking was fine. Room stayed damp and towels and bathing suits never dried all the way. Bathroom was small. The room seemed small, but I […] think that's because the giant dresser/entertainment center took up a lot of space. Wifi was spotty. Fridge froze everything we kept in it (couldn't find a way to adjust the temperature). We booked very close to travel date so our options were limited, and I think it was a little overpriced.

"Too much maintenance in 4 nights"
The location is perfect, close to major expressways and the room was okay. The problem existed that we had no running water for over 9 hours and the next day the elevator was being inspected and repaired for 2 hours. There was no prior notice that the elevator could not be used until we arrived at the elevator to go check out. We had to go down 2 flights […] as we were on the 3rd floor. We are senior citizens with one of us having knee problems. Hotel should notify occupants prior to the day of maintenance. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Pet/family friendly in safe area"
For a budget pet-friendly hotel, it was pretty reasonable room. It is on a road just off the highway with lots of other hotels, and is a very safe area. On the other side of the freeway are multiple shopping/food plazas (including lots of restaurants, a Trader Joe's & Target). The location was within 10 min of the zoo, sea world, balboa park & the old […] town/gaslamp district. Breakfast, pets, wi-fi & parking are included in the price of the room, no surprise fees! There was a pool & a hot tub, though we didn't ever get to them. The only downside was that the walls are not very soundproof, but it was not that big a deal considering the price of the room. The hotel also seems fine with you leaving your pet in the room while you are out sight-seeing....which is a big plus if you have a reasonably well mannered pet. Overall, it is not lavish, but is a reasonable & convenient budget room for traveling with a pet/kids. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel convinient to zoo"
I loved the hotel, Kids got in the heated pool and the free breakfast was ok to satisfy you till lunch time.The only thing i did not like that the towels i had in my shower were damp so i didnt know if they were used or they we just not dried correctly, but overall good place to stayGenuine Expedia guest review
Overall, a great hotel to stay. Room: had a damp smell to it, not overly annoying. The A/C cleared it up. Breakfast: crazy - too many people trying to all eat at the same time. Better to walk to Denny's down the road and have a quite meal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place for the price"
Rooms are a little small with out a lot of storage. Nice and clean. Nice pool and hot tub. Free breakfast is great with kids. They cleaned our room daily but twice did not leave any clean towels and we had to wait to shower until they arrived. Overall we were satisfiedGenuine Expedia guest review
Need bigger room for breakfast, very crowded.!!! but the food was good. The safe in my room had no key , and the and the water fauchet in the bathroom was bad. This should have been taken care of before the room was rented out to me . I called the front desk and the problem was taken care of when I got back that evening. The staff was very good!! R. […] O.

Immediately upon check in we were asked if we needed a room with 2 queen size beds. There is just us two, so we said no and were immediately upgraded to a suite at no charge. Lucky for us, there were 2 college football games and an NFL game that same week. The staff was polite and very pleasant. The service was second to none.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Stayed for three days"
The rooms were ok , the rooms had dark carpet it gave a dull look . The beds were not so good, I could feel the springs. The breakfast was good, had three waffle makers, 2 to. 3 toasters. Had bread, beagles, English muffins, boiled egg, yogurt, fruits, 3 cereal , juice & milk. They had lot of parking, both covered and open spots.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room smelled funny. The staff was asked recommendations on restaurants and we went to go to one of them and it was closed /no longer in business. The room was overpriced for what you got. Things need to be upgraded.. I would not stay there again. Very disappointed.Genuine Expedia guest review
We've stayed at this hotel 3 times in the past two years. This time, we were there for four nights. It is conveniently located and provides a nice breakfast. We were very pleased once again with the quality for the economical price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hsppy medium to the ocean shopping and resturants"
Overall experience was great had helpful staff great heated pool will be staying in the futureGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent for the price point"
It's not a brand new five star hotel, but it's really clean and comfortable for the price point. The room was very clean, the grounds were immaculate, the bed was comfortable, and the features in the room were very nice. Really the only negative was that the room was a bit stuffy at first, but that was easily relieved by just opening the window for […] a while and getting some air in. Everything else was top notch for a room under $100, and the complex was quiet on a Saturday night. I would highly recommend this place to anyone, and I would definitely stay here again.

"Great location and home-base for San Diego visit."
The location is close to a number of freeways so easy to get to a variety of locations. Room was clean and comfortable. Service was good and practically invisible.
