My family took a weekend trip to San Diego and selected this LaQuinta for the location and affordable price. As Elite members of the LaQuinta Returns Program, we were upgraded to the next "best" room ... which was a suite on the 3rd floor. We were pleasantly surprised at the accommodations and enjoyed the stay. The rooms were clean. Although...

I would definitely recommend this hotel. Great customer service. The suite was very clean and updated!! I feel that you get a lot for your money. Price includes breakfast (they have a variety of items to choose from). Location is good, very close to the zoo, balboa park, the museums. Parking is not included but the cost per day is...

The room was clean—so clean it was like stepping into a bottle of Lysol toilet cleaner that has been mixed with pesticides. To add to the overpowering odor of the room, we started smelling marijuana and cigarettes (in the smoke-free facility) at bedtime, so we called the office to complain. Back to bed we went, at which time the neighbors...

The purpose of my stay was a pleasure trip with my 90 year old Father. Our first destination was the Midway Museum. We were extremely pleased with our accomodations. We enjoyed 2 nights and 3 days and enjoyed the beautiful town of San Diego. Thank you for making my quality time with my Father REAL Quality!

Usually I am very pleased with La Quinta hotels. I look for them first. This particular site I found disappointing. The rooms smelled funky and they need a designated smoking area away from common areas.

We stayed here because our house is undergoing renovation, and we wanted to be out of the house during demolition. This hotel is in a great location, convenient to most of San Diego's attractions. They are very dog friendly, even gave our pooch a dog biscuit when we checked in. It is an older property, the hallways are exterior so...

Dear Guest, Our general manager sent replied back to you on January 5th on a previous similar review of yours. The only reason you were unable to book with us directly is if we did not have the room type availability, or were sold out on the nights you were requesting to stay. We are a very busy property and...

The hotel was easy to get to with a lot of available parking. However, you had to pay to park. It was not part of the room fee. Three of us stayed in a family suite, and I notified them on the reservation that there were three of us. We were only given one blanket, and when I asked for...
