I stayed here for 2 nights. The staff were all very nice. The breakfast was very good and the room to eat in was clean.
Unfortunately, there were a few small cockroaches in my room and I informed the staff that they needed to spray the room.
We have stayed here twice with our dogs. we just love it! staff is so friendly and helpful, rooms are nice, nice new TV's, and clean. Microwave, fridge and hairdryer in room. So close to the beach and shopping. Will definitely stay here again. The continental breakfast in the morning is definitely yummy!!
We came for a week to visit San Diego attractions. This is our second stay at La Quinta. For a modic daily rate, you get a comfortable double queen room with refrigerator (medium size) and microwave, coffee maker, TV, free internet, parking on site, pool and jacuzzi and a plentiful breakfast.
For a family on the go, who will be mostly crashing at night, this place is great. Location is about 15 min from Seaworld and other places of interest, so car is needed. This place is not for a romantic getaway.
Breakfast is plentiful yet simple, and as others pointed out, all in disposable plates -something that environmentally concerned travelers may mind a great deal.
Service is attentive and the hotel is very clean. Yes, there are the noisy pipes, rooms need to be aired a bit...but I have suffered these inconveniences in expensive hotels as well. Here, any request is graciously and expeditiously attended to.WHen we requested a quiet room, they immediately booked us in the third floor, the quieter area.
So....for families on a budget with a car (or rental car) this is a good place.
Overall, we had a great experience during our 6 night stay. The room was clean, the staff were very friendly and accommodating and the breakfast was delicious. Our only concern was that the bathroom fans didn't seem to remove the moisture after showers (4 of us in a room) and so the room itself became humid. I would stay at this hotel again.
I enjoyed this Inn for a nine day stay in San Diego. It offered clean rooms at a good rate, was conveniently located, and the staff was extremely helpful. I would return there for future visits and would not hesitate to recommend.
