La Quinta Inn & Suites San Diego SeaWorld/Zoo Area
Ranked #161 of 286 Hotels in San Diego
Reviewed 13 October 2008

This property was clean, updated, and extremely well-priced considering the amenities. The room had a frig, microwave, coffee maker, iron, ironing board and a safe. I've seen far less in pricier hotels/motels. My only wishes would be for more hooks on which to hang wet towels so could re-use them more easily, and for not-so-soft beds. The "continental" breakfast was generous! They offered fruit, cereal, muffins, danishes, bagels, bread, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, coffee, juice, milk, do-it-yourself Belgian waffles, and all trimmings (butter, jam, cream cheese, etc.). The breakfast area was clean and well stocked. The desk and housekeeping staff were friendly, efficient, and all were fluent in English but could also communicate well with those who spoke a variety of other languages. It's conveniently located just a stone's throw east of Hotel Circle, near freeways and a variety of attractions. I've stayed in many other hotels in the immediate vincinity for an annual excursion, and none of them come close to giving you the same value for your dollar. The La Quinta will be my choice from now on!

In San Diego for a wedding, we were able to check in early and the staff couldn't have been nicer. They were great. The room was attractive, the sink outside the bath/toilet area was a good design, fridge, microwave and coffeepot were appreciated.
Breakfast was good, breakfast room was attractive and spacious. Last year we stayed at the Handlery, we liked this hotel better. Plus we didn't have to pay extra for parking. Would definitely stay here again.

I booked one evening at the La Quinta this past weekend and could not have been more impressed. I had been worried about finding a room, because several of the other surrounding hotels were fully booked. However, I was able to book a room at the La Quinta without any reservations. And the room was so much more than I expected. I loved it! It was so much nicer than the Hilton, or even the Sheraton. It had a seating area and separate bedroom with tv's in both rooms, a wet bar with a mini fridge and even a mounted cd player in the room. The hotel even serves free breakfast in the morning to boot! The customer service was wonderful. The staff patiently answered all of the questions that I had. I'm already planning my next stay!

Stayed one night in a King suite, worked great for my 2 kids to each have a separate room. Bed was very comfortable, pull out was a bit hard, but ok. Room was clean, pool water was a bit too warm, breakfast was nice, but very crowded. Close to everything. Would definately stay there again.

Nice quiet place to stay. A lot cheaper then hotel downtown. By car, the downtown is a 10 minutes ride.
Nice continental breakfast included.
Shopping center nearby.
the only downside of this hotel is that you will need a car to get around.

Stayed at this hotel the first few days in July up to the 4th of July. It turned out to be a great location for everything I wanted to do in San Diego. It's located near "Hotel Circle" which happens to be within a few miles of several of SD's major tourist attractions: Balboa Park, the SD Zoo, Sea World, Mission Beach, Seaport Village, the U.S.S. Midway, etc. It's also right across the highway from a Fashion Mall and shopping center locations. This includes several restaurants which were easy to get too.

As for the hotel itself, check-in was quick and easy. We used the parking garage to park our vehicle, and while the parking spots were pretty small, there was plenty of parking each night we were there. There was an elevator from the parking garage to each floor of the hotel. The room was clean, the beds comfortable, the bathroom small but adequate, and overall a joy to come "home" to after a day filled with touristy stuff. My only complaint was that the fridge in our room had been turned off before we arrived...not sure if it was done by the cleaning staff or the previous residents of the room, but it did take a while to cool down once we turned it on. We bought some snacks and drinks at the Target across the highway. There is also some grocery stores within a few miles as well, if you need to get some snacks/food items.

All in all, it was a satisfactory experience. I would stay there again especially since there is so much to do within a few miles of the hotel.
