If you like to smoke this is your place. Smoking seems to be allowed everywhere except in the rooms. Very dirty surroundings because of this. Right next door is Hooters and you get a 20% for staying here, but we weren't told this by the front desk.

"Business Trip to Costa Mesa"

Took a business trip to Costa Mesa for business. This hotel was conveniently located by the highway. The room was clean, the pool was nice, the people at the desk were very courteous. I would stay at this hotel again.

The rooms are old and run down. The interior walls need a new coat of paint. The carpet is warn out. The hairdryer was torn off the wall and missing. Not worthy of a 2-3 star rating or worth the $100/per night that they charge.

"Summer stay"
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 21, 2014
A TripAdvisor Member | 
Hotel has been through the La Quinta renovations that they have done over the last few years. The hotel was nice, with a quality bed. The room was clean and was better in appearance than the exterior of the hotel. With that, the hotel is older and the outside looks it. But again, the hotel has renovated the inside quite nicely. I had a room away from the highway and never heard anything. The bathroom is renovated as much as they can for an older hotel. It was clean, water pressure was moderate, water was warm-to-hot. The rate was among the cheapest in the area, but I'd say this hotel exceeded the other hotels I looked at for this price. Employees were professional and nice. Located close to I-405 for easy access to the places I needed to go. Several eating places within walking distance. Good hotel. Would stay again.

"Not the Best La Quinta, but comfortable"
3 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 17, 2014
George G | Akron, OH, United States
It was a busy weekend with lots of kids in tournaments. The hotel is open with doors facing noisy parking lots (motel style). The beds/pillows were comfortable. The AC worked fine; the white noise of the fan drowned out most of the outside noise. The breakfast was average: nothing extra/special. The breakfast area was too small for all the people. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful.
