I wasn't expecting much, however the room had a strong mold small and possibly cigarette smell too? Front desk service was friendly and professional, so no complaints there. Room felt kind of dingy and the bed was not as comfortable as one should hope. I'm pretty reasonable in my expectations of a hotel of this rating and price, but honestly...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 February 2017

Stayed for five days. Check-in was very easy. The young lady at the desk, Guadalupe, was as pleasant a person as you would ever meet. She gave us recommendations for places to eat as well as coupons for free appetizers at local eateries. Our room was clean and quiet. Well maintained every day. Breakfast was very good. Toast, bagels, muffins,...

La Quinta hotels are very dependable. They are clean and comfortable (with the exception of the one in Ventura). The price is reasonable and having breakfast provided is nice. This chain is one of our first places to look for a place to stay.

Had high hopes because the LQ we stay in Raleigh,NC was so great. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. First issue, Walking on the carpet should not have my socks turn black! GROSS! A/C was very loud which in a way was good due to being right next to the freeway and people in the parking lot. Same breakfast items every...

Our room was the farthest from the freeway. We are grateful. Saturday breakfast had fewer items to select, but was satisfactory. Sunday had a larger variety. The room was nice, plenty of space, everything we needed. Maybe an extra blanket might be a good idea.

Very well maintained older hotel in a great location. We were visiting friends in Solana Beach and this was the perfect location for us to stay with our dog. The staff is very friendly. We love the fact that our dog stayed for free.

I don't understand the size of the pillows. You can't say because it's a discount hotel, I've been to plenty discount hotels. Never have I stayed anywhere that had decorative pillow sized sleeping pillows. The pillow cases don't even fit! The rest of the room is average.

We enjoyed a Great hotel, with a convenient location. The great staff, good food, comfortable room, with many added features made a two days stay a very special retreat. The ability to have a pet stay in the room, made all of this so much better.
