Location can be everything. La Quinta Sea World is right off I-8, fairly easy to get to. Typical friendly staff. This is an older hotel that's been refurbished. We had a king suite. The living room area was small, but the furniture was comfortable and it includes a small wet bar area with coffee maker, fridge and microwave. The sleeping...

I thought the hotel was average but was very surprised by a $10 a night parking fee. This is something I feel was unnecessary, as you should not have to pay to park, where else would you park. I was very disappointed by this charge.

Stayed at this location for 3 nights for a weekend getaway. I would stay here again. The price was very reasonable. We try to primarily always book with LQ properties because of how pet friendly they are. And not paying for pet fees saves so much money. It allows us to stay longer not having to factor in an extra...

I have stayed at La Quinta's for 17 years in 8 different states and this was the worst I have encountered. Maids do a terrible job and rooms are noisy. If you park below in the garage watch out for the leaking first floor bathroom pipes!

Decent hotel. Close by to shopping, interstate access, SeaWorld. The location is well worth the stay here. Keep in mind you are right next to an interstate so there will be some noise pollution if you want to sit outside and relax. The elevator is in desperate need of lubrication or something. I rode it once that was it for...

This La Quinta is conveniently located to many local attractions. Easy access to the highway and anyplace you need to go. There is a good selection at breakfast and the staff are very accommodating. We'll definitely stay here again on our next visit to San Diego.

We have now stayed at both La Quinta's in San Diego (Sea World and Old Town)and found this one much more enjoyable and quieter. We needed a handicap room and they are located right near to the elevator and closest rooms to the breakfast area. We had no problem with the parking and found the underground parking at this La...

I was down here for a conference by myself. Understand that I had been relocated from another hotel to this one because of a flood condition where I had been originally staying. The room was large. I actually had 2 rooms --- one bunk bed setup for kids and then the standard adult setup. Overall the stay was "ok". I...
