There are much better places to stay for sure. For the price, I feel this hotel can do much better. Breakfast food was good, but there wasn't enough of it for the amount of guests. Room was very clean, but there were maintenance issues. This hotel is also not the easiest to get to. For the traffic/driving confusion alone,I'm not...

Hi, leahsX3107JT! We're sorry to hear we didn't exceed expectations on this visit.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 11 April 2017

We were just looking for an inexpensive place to stay one night near Sea World for myself and 3 teens. The only room they had left had a king bed in a bedroom and bunk beds in the living room. It turned out to be perfect! The bunk beds were really stable and didn't creak or move much when the...

Stayed for business for one night and the accommodations were fine. The building is obviously old and could use some sprucing up but room was clean and everything worked. All staff members were friendly and cordial. I really like when sheets are used over and under blankets rather than using a bedspread. At least that way you have a better...

Hi, Paulamarker. We're sorry to hear that the phone reservation process was cumbersome. We do make note of our $10 parking fee wherever possible, so we're also sorry to hear that the fee wasn't evident when researching our hotel. We will work on improving that. We hope you enjoyed your trip to San Diego. Safe travels!

Dr Lall, owner of this property and his onsite GM, R. Blatt, promise in writing great Guest Care. Nada. Not one word on booking sites about a surprise $10 additional charge for parking at checkin nor a surprise $30 credit card hold charge even though the entire non-refundable rate was prepaid on hotel.com!

From the initial contact with inquiring about the facilities, to making the reservations, through my room choice, and three nights stay, I would have to say, " Thank you La Quinta for a great experience."

First time in my life I have been charged for Parking in a motel. I do not Understand this. Sounds to me like totally insensible. If you want to charge more raise the price of the room instead of this extra $10 after the fact.

I booked our stay through zoodeals.com. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the free breakfast was great! When I realized that I had failed to print out my SD Zoo tickets at home, Leslie and Jose at the front desk quickly came to the rescue and printed them out for me. Excellent, friendly customer service is always greatly appreciated!

I discovered a new type of hotel room. La Quinta offers a family suite. A king bed in one room and a set of bunk beds in the other room. It was the perfect place for our spring break get-away. The breakfast had many choices and was restocked often.

The furniture in our room was old and in very beatup condition. It was dingy, way past needing updating. Needs a deep cleaning. Didn't want to walk around without socks, ugh. It is a very poor choice for pets. No rooms at ground level and the dog areas were minimal and dirty. This hotel is a black eye for the...
