Reviewed 8 November 2014

Compared to other hotel facilities in the area, this LaQuinta is a bargain. Look no further. The location is perfect to all the places you want to go see. The room is very compact, but you are just planning to sleep there, right? It has a microwave, frig, and decent breakfast. You get a big bang for your buck!

As per usual, the La Quinta delivers comfort and cleanliness. We REALLY appreciate its dog friendliness and love the free wifi and breakfast. We stayed at this San Diego La Quinta last week and also at the Midvale, Utah La Quinta a couple days before that, where the staff was exceptional in their attitude and helpfulness.

Stayed at the la Quinta from 10/23/14 to 10/27/14 Hotel stay was simply perfect inside & out. pool & hot tub were great. breakfast was ok too. There are a few eateries in the area and within walking distance, which all of them were good. Only downside was the $8.00 a day parking fee

The hotel was nice; however, the room did not seem to cool down even though the air conditioner was cranked up. Also, the breakfast area was a zoo and it was messy and there were no coffee cups. The Pool area was clean, and our rooms were clean. The LaQuinta counter-staff was awesome!

Dear Tina, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. I apologize that the room did not cool down sufficiently. We are in the process of upgrading our air conditioning units over the next several months. I have spoken to the supplier for the cups as they missed their delivery time and this should not have happened. I want...

Stayed three nights while in town for a wedding. The rooms were clean but dated. The staff was friendly but I didn't get the room cleaned one day because they came so late and I could not vacate the room. The AC made a lot of noise but worked well. The pool was green. Breakfast was good but nothing special,...

Dog friendly, pet-owner friendly, family-friendly--this hotel experience helped us to have the "perfect" weekend away! Wonderful staff, clean rooms, hot jacuzzi with reasonable hours. If you have a dog, this is THE place to go! We met so many wonderful pets (and their owners!) LaQuinta knows how to make people with pets feel welcome--thanks. We WILL return!

Hotel was a nice location to visit a lot of the attractions in San Diego. Staff was friendly, rooms were clean. Only issue is the breakfast area is small so was hard to find a seat and crowded at the food counter. Desk staff was extremely knowledgeable of to provide directions to attractions.
