We've stayed at many LQ hotels and have been very satisfied. Our king suite was not described well. We've never stayed in an LQ king suite that had no door on the bedroom. We would have got a room with two queens if we had known before. Breakfast is okay and crowded. All that said, still a good deal for...

We stayed here for a four day Spring break family trip and couldnt of been more pleased. But with all hotels and locations, there are Pros and Cons, and so I'll give you MY opinion for both. Pros: The location of this hotel was the best part. This hotel is a great location from Sea World, Downtown San Diego, Balboa...

Great hotel to stay at, everything is local. the rooms are clean and the service is great compared to others in the area. I would stay there again in my next trip to this area. The only issue we had was there was no towels at the pool at the time we went but other than that it was good.

The hotel was very comfortable and clean. Located near many places to eat and close to trolley station. Booked it at the last minute during the middle of the summer season. Would stay at the same hotel again.

The location is very good and the price makes it a good value for a two room suite. It is pet friendly which is a hard to fill requirement for some of us. It is just across the highway from Trader Joe's and the Mission Valley Mall. The Fashion Mall, Old Town, the beaches, are all close. If you don't...

This so called La Quinta hotel is a converted motel and is a disgrace to the La Quinta brand. There is no front door and central lobby, each room has its own unguarded door, both of which make it feel very unsafe. The rooms are dark and smell dank - and the ac is poor and very loud.
