The location was great for the things I had to do. And being able to bring my Yorkie made my trip easy for me. Great location close to airport however far enough away so that the noise did not bother me. When I came back late tired and hungry I was able to get a hot cup of soup next door and returned to my room and enjoyed my room.

"Old and outdated"

We stayed here one as part of the park and fly package. We picked La Quinta because we've stayed at other LQs and assumed the quality would be the same. It wasn't! The park and fly residents stay in the back hotel and it's so run down. The carpet was filthy and the bathroom just seemed unclean. No way was this worth the price, even with the included parking. And to top it off, the shuttle picks you up from back hotel but refused to drop us off there. They dropped us off at the front hotel with all of our luggage and we had to walk to get the car which was parked at the back hotel across the tracks.

We had a terrible experience here. We were two young (30's) couples traveling with an infant. We booked directly through the hotel website and there was no mention of an annex building. When we checked in we were directed to the back annex building. We explained that we were traveling with an infant and a ton of luggage, so we really needed to be in the main building. We were told they had no rooms available there so we had no choice but to take the hike back there. Imagine our surprise when they didn't even have anyone to help us! AND! We had to walk over active train tracks!!! The room was gross and very outdated. It was a miserable experience. The only good part of this hotel was the free airport shuttle and the kind security guard in the morning who let us into the breakfast room before the official opening time. I would not return.

"Perfect for SFO"

Like others have stated, it's all about airport access. I see no reason to pay many $$$ just to sleep off an international flight. We knew we'd be dead on our feet coming back from Tanzania, so booked here. Price was least expensive in area. We requested main building & room was satisfactory in every way. Bed was very comfortable, which was the whole point of stay. It wasn't as noisy and you would think considering location. In room coffee pot was brand new, & breakfast was what you would expect, and just fine. I have no problem recommending this place for this situation. Would I stay here for a luxury vacation, no.

"Dated, Dirty, & Damaged, topped off with an underwhelming breakfast"

I really don't know where to begin with this place. I have heard only great things about La Quinta Hotels from friends. My old company used to recommend the Chicago Loop La Quinta Hotel to our customers and never a complaint. I needed a last minute hotel the night before my flight home nearby the San Francisco airport, I saw La Quinta and thought, "Quality and Value". In the end it was neither! I spent over $200 after taxes and it felt like a bad motel. - The room was dated and dirty - The A/C was loud and didn't work well - The bathroom was dirty and the shower head didn't point in the right direction and the tub felt like it lost the support underneath and was going to collapse - The tv was old and didn't have a clear image - The free breakfast was a joke, it had a terrible selection, un-ripe oranges, over-heated room, and not well stocked
