This place reminds me of the cheap motels which used to be the only choice. Located next to a busy highway, no view, musty rooms, ran short of towels, tissue, room cleaners and breakfast. Not enough maid staff or laundry equipment (for them to keep up). Breakfast area was too small and packed with people. The coffee came in pre-made packets and it was watery. Nice food across the busy highway crossing about 1/4 walk. Trolly is over there too. Prices are high for what you get.
We stayed at the Mission Valley La Quinta for 7 nights while we were in the process of moving. We always stay at La Quinta due to the pet policy and our dog, so we didn't think twice about it. Unfortunately, this one wasn't up to other La Quinta standards. First, upon check-in I was informed of an 8 dollar per night parking fee, which was not advertised to me in any way prior to booking. I asked for it to be waived due to our length of stay and they would only lower the cost to 5 dollars a night. Rooms for guests with pets are on the first floor, which is fine, but not every person is responsible with their animals and left them in the room while they would go out, leaving barking dogs unattended. The breakfast didn't include any usual La Quinta items like eggs, bacon, potatoes, etc, but it was okay and sufficient. Our big issue was with the customer service. Not only would they not waive our parking fee, but one morning around 10:30 am the wi-fi stopped working. I alerted the front desk and they tried resetting the router, but it didn't work. It was still out that evening around 10 pm, so we called back and the young man working spoke to us like we just didn't know how to turn on our devices correctly. We decided to call AT&T uverse about the outage and they confirmed it was out in guest rooms. We called the front desk again in the morning after it had been 24 hours of no free wi-fi as advertised and advised them what AT&T told us and finally someone reset all their equipment and it worked again. I did not appreciate the nature in which I was treated during the ordeal, and felt like my money and time wasn't valued. On a positive note, this hotel is in a great location to proximity to food, shopping, beach, zoo, sea world, etc.
Service was great and the room was clean. The bed was comfortable and the area was peaceful and quiet for sleeping in. Thanks La Quinta for a great stay! We will definitely be back to stay here when we come to San Diego again.
I stayed here for 2 nights. The staff were all very nice. The breakfast was very good and the room to eat in was clean.
Unfortunately, there were a few small cockroaches in my room and I informed the staff that they needed to spray the room.
We have stayed here twice with our dogs. we just love it! staff is so friendly and helpful, rooms are nice, nice new TV's, and clean. Microwave, fridge and hairdryer in room. So close to the beach and shopping. Will definitely stay here again. The continental breakfast in the morning is definitely yummy!!
