Very clean, super friendly and helpful staff, PET FRIENDLY!! Great breakfast, including hard boiled eggs, quick response to tub not draining, very friendly maintenance supervisor. Comfortable beds, quiet AC unit. Quiet location, quiet rooms, even with a few dogs barking on my floor (the "dog" floor). Would definately stay here again and would recommend to all friends and family.

This hotel is full of unsavory guests. Many of them hang out on the stairways & walkways, drinking beer, and smoking. This hotel claims a 100% non-smoking policy with a $250 fine for smoking. These guests seemed not in fear of being levied this fine, likely due to their fortunes in last night's lottery winnings. The mosh pit in the free breakfast room will leave you battered, if not infected from the trash left behind after these denizens have ravaged through the breakfast items. The walls of the rooms are paper-thin, leaving no doubt as to your neighbor's life of problems and arguments. If you are fortunate enough to be located on the side adjacent to the auto dealership, you will learn a great deal about the sounds of auto repair and the number of cars that can be shuffled in and out in a day. Forget sleeping, as the smokers & party crowd run, stomp and shout up and down the walkways by the rooms at all hours of the night.

Dear Brian B.,

Thank you for taking the time to review the La Quinta Inn and Suites San Diego. It is through such feedback that we may continually strive to improve our product and service standards. I apologize that your stay was not up to your expectations. We are in the process of installing no-smoking signs in all public areas, other than the designated smoking areas. In relation to our breakfasts, we are working on improving the experience and ensuring that our Associates respond quicker to clear the tables subsequent to guests vacating the area. We hope we will have an opportunity to welcome you back and demonstrate our true hospitality.

Excellent stay, great staff, tasty continental breakfast. Due to ComicCon, summer and a couple of other conventions in town rate was very pricey. I will come back but probably offseason when the rates go back to normal.

Hotel is a little on the older side and hasn't been updated in a while. Rooms were clean but felt muggy inside. Staff was friendly. Expected a little more for the amount we paid, but it was ok. Hotel is about 30-35 minutes from the Safari Park and Legoland, and right off the freeway.

I stayed at the La Quinta Inn and Suites in San Diego, CA on Hotel Circle. I would not stay there again. They need to make major upgrades to the rooms. It was near a busy freeway and a not so busy car dealer but the dealership was loud too. The food quality was poor. The faucet leaked all night no matter what I did and the room wouldn't cool off. The housekeeping did an amazing job with what they had to work with. I had a much better stay at the LaQuinta in Anaheim, CA. That's why I decided to stay at the one in San Diego. Not all LaQuinta Inns are the same.

Not the best, not the worst. A new fee for parking had been added since our previous stay and the cleaning service forgot to clean the restroom, leave fresh towels and also forgot the shampoo/soap. We had to use the towels from the swimming pool so we could shower. The staff overall were very courteous and friendly, but I did not tell them about the forgotten bathroom (so as not to get the cleaning staff in trouble). Also found it difficult to understand how the 'rewards' points work. Since, there is no reward for staying with La Quinta (over 10 days in the past year),we won't be staying there anymore.

The staff was very friendly and always smiling. The room itself was clean and I liked that it had a fridge and microwave in the room (even though we didn't use them). However, a couple of the towels were dirty and had hair on them and we were only given 1 bar of soap. I know we could have requested more, but honestly we were just so tired that we didn't have the energy to do so. The location is great and close to most everything. I didn't hear any excess noise - you are near a freeway, so I would expect some, but it's not a nuisance. Breakfast was nice, but the waffles were a little soggy in the middle (maybe increase the cook time a little?). Overall, not a bad stay (we ended up staying 2 nights), but we were able to find cheaper accommodations in the area that we liked more.
