“Quite good!”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

We selected the Travelodge La Mesa because of its proximity to our children's home -and due to its high ratings. We were very pleased by the condition of the room (appears quite new), the size of the room and the more than satisfactory accoutrements. Overall very clean with staff quite polite and competent. Simple but nice breakfast - better than most "included breakfast" offerings. Free Wi-Fi worked well with very simple one time sign-on. Would have given it a 5 star rating except for the entrance door and tight parking area - minor points.

Unless your only other option is sleeping under a bridge, don't stay here. The man at the check in counter was so incredibly rude that my husband and I just walked away without checking in. A couple in front of us was nearly assaulted and then a man who tried to help was literally yelled at. I couldn't believe it.

No early check in is the least f this place's problems.

I stayed for the 3rd time at this hotel. Still very clean and quiet. The only minor problem was at check in, because my credit card number used to hold the room was different from the one at check in. They double checked my credit card and ID, and I am grateful they did. Only thing different that I observed is the waffle maker is gone. Most likely to return here next time I visit family.

Room Tip: Never had a bad room

Front make receptionist was not very professional on day of arrival guest in front of us trying to check-in. We arrived at 4:00 pm on Friday April 18, 2014. Room was in very nice remodeled condition. Pleasantly surprised for the great price we paid. Breakfast is typical continental fare. Do not expect much as far a protein but good coffee and pastry to start day of. Only 15 minutes away from downtown San Diego. And short walk to Von's shopping center and rest.

Rude customer service. Obscure location. The only positive things I can say are the entry doors are barn door style like I have seen on the property brothers and the small lobby was clean. No elevator to get to the rooms. Very obscure location.

If you spend a long time of travel to get to the area and are tired I wouldn't recommend this establishment. The man at the check in/out desk is rude and shirt tempered. It is in an obscure location. Our experience at this hotel made me sick to my stomach for the rest of the evening. We ended up staying at another hotel in the area.
