“Save your Money!”
Reviewed 3 August 2014 via mobile

We typically stay at the La Quinta chain because we often travel with our dogs. We booked this location in advance and were disappointed upon arrival. First, it is not "centrally located." You have to drive 5-10 miles to get anywhere (zoo, beach, aquarium, shopping). The hotel appears clean, but when we got into our room, our feet were filthy from the carpet. Not ideal when traveling with a small child, or if your prefer cleanliness. The room that we stayed in was decent in size, but extremely noisy. The toilet was constantly running, the AC is very loud and the elevator shook our room. Needless to say, we did not sleep very well. The rooms are way overpriced in my opinion! The most expensive that we have ever paid for this hotel chain, and had the least amount of amenities. The staff was great, curious and helpful, breakfast was good and had variety. The pool is outside and not heated. It was stormy when we statues so that was inconvenient. Overall, we will not be returning to this location. The traffic in the area is pretty heavy, it is worth it to spend a little more and stay closer to the attraction that you are visiting.

Great staff, but I feel the hotel was overpriced for that night. Clean room, good breakfast, but air conditioning throughout hotel could use updating, would probably stay again if the price was more reasonable and an assurance that the hotel has ample security in case of emergency as there was an altercation that took place and I never saw any security arrive.

We have often chosen La Quinta when traveling. We chose this location for it's proximity to the attractions we wanted to see. We booked a suite. A suite in the other La Quinta's means a living area and separate sleeping area. In this location, it means a sleeper sofa beside a King bed. I found this arrangement quite unsatisfactory. The best thing that I can say about this place, is that the shower was great! Large shower head and plenty of hot water. When we had contact with the staff, they were helpful. And the complimentary breakfast was plentiful, if you get there early. La Quinta's are pet friendly, but this one has absolutely nowhere decent to take your dog. There is a small muddy patch right beside the street and that's it. And you can only get to the hotel in one direction. And getting to that steer takes you out of the way. It is almost impossible to take an immediate left onto Mission Bay Drive, because of regular heavy traffic. The location was decent for our needs, but it's inconvenience and lack of dog walking space, will never have me returning. Pay extra for a more convenient location. That is my advice.

We booked this hotel as a last resort to get to San Diego for the holiday weekend. The rooms are a bit run down, and parking is a joke. You pay $8 a night for parking and there is barely enough room for the guests' cars. Not to mention the spots are SO small, my Ford Edge barely fit. The complimentary breakfast was poorly organized for the mass mob that visited each morning and the food was mediocre at best. We paid way too much for this hotel and probably wouldn't go back but in a pinch we made it work. Oh, and our tub wouldn't drain very well when you showered...eww.

I recently took my grandsons to southern California and chose this hotel for part of the trip. I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness, comfort, and size of the room. The price was great as well. Add in the free breakfast (which had many choices) and it was a great deal overall.

The hotel is renovated and clean. The breakfast is wonderful. Since it is pet friendly I would suggest a bigger designated space for pets to relieve themselves. Also, a toilet seat cover was missing in our room which made it difficult as my dog kept running to try and get water.
