"The room was fine but bathroom smell was terrible. The bathroom needs more cleaning."
Reviewed Jul 22, 2014
We stayed there on 4th of July weekend because of the visit of Carlsbad outlet which is nearby.The location was good and check in was easy.Room was OK but there was a bad odor coming from the bathroom.The bathroom needs more cleaning.The carpet looked so old and dirty so we had to wear our slippers all the time.I think I won't try this location again.
Just getting into San Diego for work on 7/14/14 I had checked into this location. During check-in the hotel clerk went over my reservation, which was made two weeks prior to check-in, and stated "we have you here till Friday (7/18)" which was what matched my reservation. Aside from the lack of wifi reception and no wired ethernet capabilties, even though there are cards in the room stating there are, I had no issues that night.
Fast forward to after work 5pm on 7/15. I just so happened to have to go to the front desk to ask that my room be switched because of the lack of wifi I need to complete my work. I then come to find out that staff had given someone else my room they stated "I was checked out this morning and you left your luggage in the room." (I'd like to add what kind of morons find a giant suitcase in a room filled with clothes and don't double check the persons reservation for that room.) I showed them the reservation e-mail that shows that I am supposed to have the room till 7/18 then they followed up with "There are no other rooms available, sorry" Are you kidding me? What kind of INCOMPETENT EMPLOYEES do you have working at this place? Now not only do they have a hold on the entire amount of my stay but I can't get that money released to get another room somewhere else. THANKS LA QUINTA I'LL NEVER STAY AT ANOTHER LOCATION AGAIN.
My overall stay was fine. Clean, safe hotel and nsoo issues with the staff.
What I did have a huge problem with was the internet/wi fi connection. They don't over Ethernet cable, and have an open network, so internet was practically non existent. Patchy abd slow, couldn't stream Netflix until 2 am. Disappointing for sure when traveling with kids and was relying on wi fi.
Also, there is no laundry facility, major inconvenience as we were doing beach twice during pour vacation and were relying on washing between days.
There is no spa either, but they did have a pool
,the kids were happy with that.
The breakfast offered was fine, yogurt, waffles, fruit, hard boiled eggs, bagels, toast, juice, cereal, coffee, hot cocoa. Wish tgey had off offered pastries as most la quintas do.
Non smoking room reeked of smoke. Carpet dirty with red sticky looking substance at entrance. No way housekeeping could not see it. 2nd room had feces on bathroom door frame & carpet was so dirty the bathroom tile would get dirty when we walked on it. Breakfast wasn't available until after 7AM on the weekend so we couldn't take advantage of it. Poor value for one of the most expensive LQs we've stayed at.
We just needed a quick place to stay on our way through town but this turned out to be a really good value. The room was clean, spacious and in pretty good condition. The free breakfast was OK and I liked parking right outside my room - easy unloading and loading of suitcases.
