This was an excellent hotel for the price and accommodations were perfect for us. I liked that they also had a continental breakfast as I was in a hurry to get to my destination and did not have time to sit down for a big meal.

We stayed at this hotel for $67 a night between February 7 & 10, 2017. I was a bit nervous because I had read some good reviews and some horrible ones. Basically, it is an older hotel near a very busy freeway. The staff were friendly and helpful. If asked for something and they got it right away. Some one...

This is an older hotel that needs some serious updating (stained bedspread, bowling alley carpet, sewer gas smell in bathroom)! We had someone pounding on our door at 2 am looking for "Bill". The parking/road was in need of repair also. We didn't bother with the breakfast - got out of there as as we could! We will not be...

This La Quinta was clean and room was nice. It is right next to the 405 highway and can be noisy....ask for room away from freeway. Parking is a bit tight so if you have a large vehicle you need to park in the back.

Key cards did not work, and had to be redone a couple of times. We were told that they were extra sensitive. Never really had this problem at a hotel. Also showers outdated and unsafe. Parking lot dominated by big trucks taking up multiple parking spaces. Noisy late night visitors.

Basic room at a good price for the Orange County area. Could use a few inexpensive bells and whistles, such as a microwave oven, USB charge station, luggage rack, clothes hook in bathroom, otherwise good nights stay.
