This hotel is convenient to just about everything in the area. Ten minutes or less from the beach and downtown it was great. Breakfast had slim pickings and parking was not easy. However, this hotel had a great shower! Great value for the traveler looking to explore San Diego!

Yikes I had no idea San Diego was so expensive. With that said and done the immediate area (called hotel circle) is filled with hotels that were more money then this one, most however were 10 dollars more; alas la*quinta is pushed to the top of the list for value only to find they make up the difference with parking. In fairness, they do state this on the website, though I did have a car (the rental was even cheaper then the hotels in this town) im not sure they charge you for this even if you d... Read more

We stayed one night at this property and selected the king suite room. The room was clean and comfortable. The property offers room service (which we did not use). There is an additional charge of $10 a night for parking, which was clearly communicated to us before we confirmed our reservation. The location is off to the side of a major highway, which did cause us to hear some traffic noise (but did not intrude on our overall experience). The hotel staff was pleasant and helped us with prin... Read more

Stayed at the adequate Inn for the Memorial Weekend and was pleased with the accomodations and the quality of the included breakfast. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the facilities are ok, although starting to show a bit of wear and tear. Given the other choices in this price range it was a reasonable exchange of services for the price paid

Our room was clean but smelled like mildew of some sort and carpets were dirty.

We drove from Utah to stay for 5 nights at this hotel. When we arrived the room wasn't clean (hairs in the bathroom, stuff spilled on the wall). During our stay, a couple of the day's nobody ever showed up to clean the room so I kept having to call the front desk to tell them and ask for towels. It was my 3 kids and I staying and we were at the beach most days so we really needed the clean towels and having things organized when we came back and the end of the day.

We wanted a convenient location with a great price for our family visit to SeaWorld, and this is the place!!! The breakfast was great--4 waffle irons, we never had to wait. The pool, although not large, was a great place to have the children unwind and cool off after a busy day.

I found our room to be clean but they had issues giving people towels both for the pool and in our room on one of the days. I'm not a person that usually calls the front desk for things but I was making nightly calls. One day we only had one coffee cup in the room. You had to hold the poor up to get the coffee to drip into it. Towels were scarce for the pool and when I asked for some they said they would send them to the pool. They didn't do this. We had to drip back to our room. I'm not sure h... Read more

Really nice stay, hardwood floors (lovely!). Stayed in 2 bedroom family room. Kid had bunkbed and sea life mural. One night stay, quick one, only complaint we had the hardest time getting to our room, had to go through pool area every time. Didn't use pool or gym. Breakfast was great. Room clean and comfy. If visiting San Diego on vacation this is a great option!

The price and location were great, but that's where the greatness stops. The walls are paper thin. You know when an adjacent room is using the shower - its like a torrent in the wall. We stayed in the family suite with the bunk bed - there's no door between rooms, the table and 2 chairs were designed for 6 year olds, and their policy is obviously to leave 3 towels no matter how many towels you request. People smoked all the time in the open hallways despite this supposedly being a non-smoking ho... Read more

We had the King Size Suite which was nice placing our 1.5 year old in the other room. The room was clean. AC was not loud. We had a very pleasant experience with the room. The only negatives with the visit is that there is a parking fee and that La Quinta needs to improve their complimentary breakfast. The hotel offered waffles where we would like more savory dishes like cooked eggs.

My husband and I stayed here for one night only. I am all for saving a few bucks but my goodness. I slept with my shirt over the pillow. Everything looks old and worn out and outdated. Spend an extra $20 or so to stay at a nicer place. There is a continental breakfast but we didn't even go. LaQuinta looks so much in the commercials. This is the only LaQuinta we have been too so it might only be this one that is so run down.

Our family stays at La Quinta Inn's each time we travel to San Diego and other destinations (La Quinta is our 'go-to' hotel for most of our travels due to their quality control). The Sea World/Zoo Area location is very convenient and close to everything.

The location of the hotel was not ideal as it was right off the freeway. We traveled by Amtrak from LA so we didn't have a car to get around. The closest restaurant was about a 15-min walk away and you had to cross the freeway on foot unless you wanted to take an Uber for 5 minutes. The room was okay though...we got a family room and it came with a private bedroom with a king bed and there was a bunk bed outside. The room had a kitchenette though which came in really handy.

I won't stay here again unless the hotel replaces their elevators. We took the stairs because the elevator shakes and makes lots of noise. We thought we were going to get stuck in their hot elevator. The air conditioner in the room took a long time to cool the room down. The room is average for this price range.

Not sure I would stay here again. As my son said, "the area is a little sketchy." It's in a weird location but still close to most destinations. The rooms are basic but I slept really well for two nights. The pool is really nice. The breakfast was pandemonium with people everywhere making a mess; Which I believe the category of this hotel speaks to their client base. If you get a rate around $100 okay but anymore just cough up a few extra bucks and stay someplace nicer.
