Stayed at LQ because of their pet (dog) friendly policy. The hotel was recently refurbished and along with the nice landscape had good quality rooms. Staff at front desk was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The breakfast was standard LQ, very good but not exceptional. Parking was plentiful and the location off the I-5 was very easy to find. There is a nice outdoor seating area with a fireplace (for heating) outside the lobby providing a pleasant environment to eat with your pet and to meet at during the evening.
After reading reviews of hotel being too noisy near freeway and dirty rooms, small pool etc, I wasn't sure what to expect. This place is clean, nice rooms, couldn't hear highway traffic or much noise at all and breakfast is your normal continental that you get at most hotels offering free breakfast! Waffles, bagels, toast, fruit, oatmeal, plenty to satisfy. Pool is small, but the beach is not far so go there rather than complain about pool size! Great location to Legoland and beach.
We have stayed at this hotel a couple of days nearly every summer for the last 10 years. We have a family reunion in the area and this hotel has been the one we the entire party stays. The past few years it had been noticeably run down and shabby. This year the common areas as well as the rooms we stayed had been updated. The updates really made a big difference. Our king suite had a new sofa bed, new countertops in the bathrooms, new carpet. Some of the bedding was new as well. It gave an old hotel a much more modern fresh feel. My one criticism for the room would be the cooling system. While it gets the room much cooler it is always very damp in the room. It is not central air but a unit built into the wall, it makes a fair amount of noise too. Luckily in the evenings at the beach it is usually nice and cool anyway.
The breakfast room was remodeled and has plenty of seating (although the later you go the more crowded it gets). The breakfast is nothing special but certainly fine for a quick start to your day. They recently added an outdoor seating area off the lobby that has a fireplace. We even did one of the family's birthday cake out on the patio by the fireplace. It was great.
For families with young kids I would recommend. They have a small but nice pool and there is a laundry room with coin operated machines available too.The staff we encountered was professional and friendly. Abdias at the front desk was so friendly. He never failed to greet us and make sure we had everything we needed when we passed through the lobby each day. I was about to start looking a new hotel options for our annual family reunion but this year La Quinta won us back with it's new look, and its usual family friendliness and affordability.
Hotel was very clean and easy to find. We felt safe and had plenty of parking. Wi-Fi was very slow to the point of being unusable. Breakfast was the same every day with waffles and cereals. Noise from Interstate was very apparent outside but we could not hear in the room. However the soccer teams with unsupervised players running up and down stairs and hallways could be heard at all hours of the morning and evening. Close to Legoland and 20 minutes from Sea World. Staff was very helpful and pleasant to deal with.
We left two days early rather than continuing to overpay for this hotel. Very average hotel that I would not visit again. Actually this was my second bad experience within two weeks at a La Quinta. One in Tucson and this one.
lobby and rooms recently remodeled
AC didnt work well
alot of freeway noise
WIFI was terrible
Pool and exterior in real need of remodel
