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.
The room was small and the bathroom was hard to get into with the door. The AC unit needed to be cleaned as it had a musty odor. Not bad for the price and location but just a few tweaks could make this a really nice place to stay.
