2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

nice clean room, friendly, helpful staff, convenient location.

Stayed 2 nights, it was a convenient location for Legoland and SAn Diego. The room was always very humid. A/c was okay, but needed maintenance - maid loud noises every 10 mins or so. The room always had a strong smell of cleaning solution after maid service, had to open the windows to air it out. The carpet and tile transition needed to be fixed, could hurt your feet on it - I placed a towel over it. Breakfast was good and the breakfast room was nice.

Staff was very friendly but the room was faulty as in the fridge took over a day to get cold and the cabinet door to that was broken. The shower head I could barely get under and I'm 5'5 poor husband who is much taller had a time of it, the beds also were supposed to be queens but were clearly smaller. Floors were absolutely discusting doubt they had ever been cleaned. Highlight of our stay was there morning breakfast ! They had make your own waffles one which was in the shape of a bear (which made the kid happy) and great coffee, with a dining area which was very nice.

The floor was so disgusting. You can't walk around barefoot and if you wear socks, you might as well throw your socks away.

The staff was nice. What we really liked was the breakfast. It was the best of any hotel I've stayed in.

The atmosphere, the scenery was just fabulous. But the hotel staff was excellent. Two in particular, were Alexa and Jasmine. these two did research for some of the best restaurants, places of interest, cinemas, and other events in town.They really made our stay relaxing and fulfilling.

Close to beach and store and great buffet breakfast Staf was helpful

location good breakfast buffet large dinning room Close to beach and shopping

My only complaint would be the dirty carpet. After walking around the room bare-foot, my feet got quite dirty. Good thing I brought my slippers with me...had to wear it in the room the rest of the trip. Other than that, the hotel was great. Good breakfast, very comfy bed and very spacious.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Free breakfast was great and the room was very clean. Beach is within walking distance as well as restaurants and grocery store. Traveled with 70+ year old mother and felt very safe walking places. Would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed in a family two bedroom suite. The suite was surprisingly spacious and the kids thoroughly enjoyed having their own room with bunk beds (and their own bathroom!). The kids room is well thought out with a bright mural on the wall and little toddler sized table with chairs. The hotel is within walking distance to the beach where we spent lots of time boogie boarding. Legoland is very close. The breakfast was pretty standard but good. We stayed here after staying at a pricey hotel in San Diego the previous night (nearly three times the price of this one) and we can honestly say that we enjoyed our stay at La Quinta much more. Next time, we will spend our entire holiday here and skip San Diego.

Stayed for a whole week and was a very nice experience. Room was comfortable and had maid service every day which is something that surprised me, esp since I was staying for so long.

Rooms were clean & despite the freeway it was quite, Lots of choices for Breakfast. Look forward to staying there again, Amber & Ally were very nice to us ( two special needs adults) Thank You..

We booked a suite with two rooms. One room is king bed, the other is two-level bed for kids. Each room has a full bath and TV.

We have stayed at many La Quintas and this one was great like the rest.

Breakfast is excellent. the room is fairly clean but quite small in space. Insulation between room to room is good. The only drawback is our room too closed to the freeway and at night we can hear noise from freeway.

We stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights. Rooms were clean and comfortable, staff was friendly. My only suggestion would be to do a better job at managing the breakfast. We couldn't get a place to sit properly for breakfast, small staff supporting the breakfast effort ( I saw only one lady running around ). There was always a long line for waffle maker.

Hotel was nice. To close to the freeway we could hear the noise in the room. Breakfast was included if you don't mind to wait half an hour for a table and another 10 minutes for everything to be filled up.

Easy, fast, affordable. Nice staff. Right off the 5 freeway, with the ocean close.

Was just looking for an overnight stay but ended up at a really nice hotel. Great location, breakfast included, clean ..who would want more.
