"Nice hotel, comfortable rooms"

We had a family trip to California, and booked through Hotwire. I was very pleased with the hotel and the room itself. It was very quiet and the location was perfect for what we had planned. I will recommend them to anyone staying in the SD area!

When we arrived it was easy to check in which was very convenient. The room was nice and roomy. They continental breakfast was nice, not a really big selection, but sufficient. The parking was nuts thou, not enough spaces. It was easy freeway access, and located close to most attractions. We had a great stay.

"An old tired loud dive hotel"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 7, 2014
valleyvine | Cental Valley
Very dated, water smells , loud neighbors, inactive staff. Do not stay here if you want to feel safe and have a good night sleep. Parking costs $8.00 and you can barley fit any car into their garage. Homeless people camped out in front of hotel. A family fiesta was taking place in the joining room and out front of our room until 1:00 AM. called 3 times to remedy the situation and it only calmed down after I threatened to call the police. the air conditioner is so loud and dated that its impossible to sleep. THe water out of the tap was so bad that it smelled like rotten eggs. Just a bad night period. I expect more out of La Quinta.
