We were able to get the bunk bed suite with the King Size Bed for the same price as the regular queen size rooms! Centrally located next to great places to eat. Very nice staff, great service from the Pool to the Breakfast Bar! There is another LaQuinta in the area and we prefer this one FAR more because there... More

Spring Break getaway for all three families down in Sand Diego! We needed a nice place that was close to everything and the other family members that lived in the area. We all brought our dogs too. I love that they allow pets and also have the breakfast available to us if wanted. We all enjoyed a king suite and... More

Room ok, bunk beds for the kids, not bad. Bathroom area seemed old and not very clean. Breakfast - horrible. This mostly contributed to the people who where in there, seems like everyone was taking advantage of the breakfast before heading out to the beach/zoo/seaworld. Everyone was in the way, or not considerate of those around them. Tables were dirty.... More

My best advice, do not stay in this place. Horrible service and rooms are dirty and with a horrible smell, you will not be able to breath. I am in san diego for business and couldn't find any rooms anywhere else, so I decided to stay here for one night and now I think my car was a better choice.... More

Between a couple of men trying to break into the rooms (including ours) and being chased off the property literally by a guest and a manager with a flurry of profanities being exchanged, multiple take out menus being slid under our door by strangers at all hours of the night, the old food left under the sink by a former...

This is your average hotel. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. My phone didn't work and a light flickered on and off. Fridge was loud. I would stay there again for business, not sure about pleasure. Like I said, average but not bad at all. Small fitness room with bike, treadmill, and Elliptical.

It was a good hotel and our stay was good. Other than it rained the last day and we had to walk through the water outside in the hallway. That not a hotel issue. It is always nice to be able to a dog with us and stay at La Quintas.

The check-in process was very slow, and there were about six groups waiting. When I finally got checked-in, I was told that the rooms weren't ready yet, even though it was about 30 minutes after check-in time. When I finally got to my room, it was pleasant and clean. Keep in mind, this is an older building, so the floor... More
