“Without exception the best motel in years of travel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2010

A relatively small motel. Room and bathroom spotlessly clean. Beds comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful. Excellent breakfast constantly supervised by a staff member to clean off tables and resupply dwindling stocks. We stayed 4 days and were sad to leave. There is indeed a "gentlemen s club next door but it is a non-issue.We spent 16 days on the road this time around and it was without a doubt the best motel ever.

We were in the Oceandisde/Vista area last weekend and based on our past visits to a LaQuinta property opted to stay two nights at the Oceanside La Quinta. The staff was attentive and friendly and the room was immaculate.
An added plus was the daily self service breakfast with eggs, bacon, juices, coffee, waffles etc.
Don't let its location (between a Motel 6 and a "gentlemen's club") deter you from staying here. The reasonable rates and amenities will cause you to return. I know we will!

Several years ago, on a family trip to Washington, we stayed in a popular hotel chain (before we found LaQuinta), and had an eye opening experience . . .
My son was young enough that he was in one of those baby walkers running around the room - We were horrified when we went to take him out and his perfectly clean socks were black from the filth on the carpet - needless to say, that made us start really checking the room out and it was beyond gross when you really got down to it - boy had we been blind - and we haven't used that hotel chain since!!
Well, ever since then, we have a running joke about whether a hotel will pass the "white sock" test or not - (and I think if you tried it you'd be surprised how many don't!) - My 79 year old Mom did the honors and by the time we were ready to turn in that evening, she had proclaimed LaQuinta Oceanside a WINNER!!! :-)
The room was clean and good sized with a fridge, micro and sink. The bed was comfortable and the FREE Wi-Fi, FREE Breakfast and FREE Parking make it a great deal.
The front desk clerk, Sue, was warm and helpful and the location is great!!!
We will definetly be staying here again!

We stayed at the La Quinta for 2 nights with our Dog. The staff was very friendly room was clean and large. Flat panel tv fridge and microwave, nice shower everything you could ask of in a hotel along with a good location. Due to traffic it can be tough getting in and out of the parking lot. I would stay there again in a heartbeat. Breakfast was nice with scrambled eggs and waffles along with the usual items.

We were on the 2nd floor and usually my dog will bark if he hears people slamming doors or talking. Over both nights he never barked once. The hotel we stayed at in Vegas he barked several times.

For the price it is a great value, more expensive hotels might have more services such as room service, fancy lobby but you can't beat the things that really count clean comfy quiet location food

Just got back from four night business related trip. Hotel was clean, staff was courteous and location was excellent. We have stayed at several LQ locations over the last year and this was the best. The breakfast selection was above average for an LQ. Rooms had microwave and fridge. Cleanliness was not an issue in the room or the rest of the hotel. The business center was one computer, but internet in the room was not a problem. Ran down to the beach a few times, it is about a quarter mile. Tried Anitas Mexican restaraunt, food was not totally authentic but not bad and decent prices. Also went to Joe's Crab shack down the road, it is a national chain restaraunt, but $1.50 beers and $2 drinks at happy hour made it worth it.

Checked into the La Quinta and Rose was at the Front Desk. She was so nice. We paid $71.00 (AAA) rate. Rose gave us a key and asked us to go check out the room and see if we like it. She kept saying she wanted us happy. We loved it. The room was very clean. Spacious. Refrige in room. Free internet. Free parking. Free breakfast. The beds were queen size and very comfy. Nice bathroom. Great shower. For a "sold out" night the hotel was very quiet. It is located across the street from one of the California Travel & Info Ctr's.

Excellent front desk staff, good housekeeping and excellent beds. The rooms feature a nice flat panel TV, 2" pillow-top beds, double-windows (keeps noise out), a small kitchen area (no stove, but microwave and small fridge), Wireless HSI (free) and a clean bathroom.

For $69.00 (last minute, walk-up price) a deal!
