What I expected for the price. Nothing fancy, but clean. Good bed with clean sheets and towels. Comp breakfast was nothing special and the days we stayed there the hotel was crowded so the breakfast room was not very clean. Centrally located and very convenient to Old Town, Balboa Park, Zoo and Sea World. There was a mall just across...

Great place to stay. Close to Qualcom Stadium, restaurants and Old Town San Diego. The only negative is the parking it's a little tight for an SUV. We will definitely stay at La Quinta San Diego Seaworld/Zoo again.

My family took a weekend trip to San Diego during the Thanksgiving holidays. This La Quinta is clean and affordable for the location. We were pleasantly surprised at the accommodations, the view, and how close it was to shopping/restaurants.

For my first experience at a LaQuinta, it will be my last. NOT my cup of tea! Trying to find a spot to park for check in was very challenging (especially at night). I am not a fan of the outside corridors, to me that is very motel esq. The elevator was very old and I was not sure it...

Misinformed as to when breakfast was over, and staff in breakfast area unfriendly. Otherwise, comfortable room and amenities. This is a very noisy location with lots of outside traffic noise, but good isolation in rooms.

My family took a weekend trip to San Diego and selected this LaQuinta for the location and affordable price. As Elite members of the LaQuinta Returns Program, we were upgraded to the next "best" room ... which was a suite on the 3rd floor. We were pleasantly surprised at the accommodations and enjoyed the stay. The rooms were clean. Although...

I would definitely recommend this hotel. Great customer service. The suite was very clean and updated!! I feel that you get a lot for your money. Price includes breakfast (they have a variety of items to choose from). Location is good, very close to the zoo, balboa park, the museums. Parking is not included but the cost per day is...

The room was clean—so clean it was like stepping into a bottle of Lysol toilet cleaner that has been mixed with pesticides. To add to the overpowering odor of the room, we started smelling marijuana and cigarettes (in the smoke-free facility) at bedtime, so we called the office to complain. Back to bed we went, at which time the neighbors...

The purpose of my stay was a pleasure trip with my 90 year old Father. Our first destination was the Midway Museum. We were extremely pleased with our accomodations. We enjoyed 2 nights and 3 days and enjoyed the beautiful town of San Diego. Thank you for making my quality time with my Father REAL Quality!

Usually I am very pleased with La Quinta hotels. I look for them first. This particular site I found disappointing. The rooms smelled funky and they need a designated smoking area away from common areas.
