close to highway and harbor in Oceanside location needs some extra amenities such as a workout room or hot tub. Room was quiet, good nights sleep, staff keep room clean and breakfast lady was on top of it
We arrived at LQ in Oceanside on August 18 at approx 3:30 pm and were assigned a room on the second floor. As we were traveling with 2 small dogs we asked if there was a room available on the first floor. We were given room 103 on the first floor, in checking the room it was very nice and clean.
We retired at 10 PM. At approximately 1:30 AM we heard a noise at our door. I got up and saw the door was ajar held closed only by the upper security lock, and saw fingers pushing against it trying to force it open. I was speechless, as soon as the fingers were removed I forcefully slammed the door closed. Before we had time to call the front desk there was a knock on the door, the night desk clerk, John, wanted to know if everything was alright, I did not open the door as at the time as I didn't know who he was but told him someone had opened the door and tried to get into the room. Within a few seconds he phoned us and spoke to my wife who, again, told him someone had tried to gain access to our room. A short time later we heard people walking around in the room above us. Needless to say, we were unable to sleep for the rest of the night as we were in fear for our safety. At 5 AM I took our dogs out for a walk, but when I tried to get back into our room my key-card no longer worked. I went to the front desk to get a key that would work and spoke with John, who was very apologetic and explained that the computer showed that our room was unoccupied and we were in room 203. I advised him that the experience was very upsetting and we would be checking out and going back to Phoenix. John was very apologetic and said he understood and would cancel our second night with no charge to us. At approx 7:30 a.m. my wife went to the front desk to speak with the manager, Laura. When my wife returned she told me that Laura's attitude was uninterested and abrupt almost to the point of rudeness, and very unconcerned that our long-waited get-away had turned into a hellish event. She did not apologize for the disturbance, but offered a 15% discount from the cost of the room night. She did call us on our cell phone while we were on the road home to inform us that her GM told her to comp the room night, and at that time apologized for the event--no doubt as instructed by her GM. We will never again stay at that LQ. We have used other La Quinta inns in the past and have been extremely happy with them. We will continue to use La Quinta inns in the future, just not this one because of the attitude of Laura.
There were no outside noises that disturbed us including from the "Gentleman's Club" next door. If I had not seen it in other reviews I would not have known it was there, it was very quiet. Our room was on the same side as the club. We did hear the people in the room above us walking around.
We reserved 6 rooms, over a period of 11 days, for a family reunion in Oceanside. Everyone was very happy with the hotel, and I did not hear a complaint from anyone in our group. In fact, many plan to return to this hotel in the future, for vacation and visiting family. The staff handled a very complicated reservation without any problems, and were very polite and accommodating. The rooms are large, modern, and very clean, with a mini-kitchenette in each room. Breakfast was very good, with sufficient variety to keep everyone happy. The breakfast room was clean and appetizing, but could have been a little bigger. The hotel assures me that they are planning on expanding it. Overall, very happy with this hotel!
I was attending a friends beach wedding in Oceanside and to my surprise the hotel was walking distance to the ocean, about 3 blocks. It is very close to the beach, restaurants and a lovely walk to the harbor. We drove from Phoenix and didn't use our car once. The street parking in town appears to be an issue. I was surprised that the hotel chain allows dog so next year I'll be bringing mine. The room was clean and the front office staff were helpful. For the price you can't beat it considering a home rental costs anywhere from 3,000- 5,000 weekly. The room had a microwave, fridge and large sink area. Definitely a bargain if in the Oceanside area
Very good and quiet location without spending a fortune. The entire hotel, including our room, was clean and comfortable. We did not have any issues during our 2-night stay. Breakfast food was fresh, and the breakfast room was clean and very well-kept.
