"Dirty pool and spa"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 27, 2014
Valerie B | Lakeport, United States
Pool area, as a whole, very disappointing. Dirt in the bottom and leaves and dirt on the ground. Walls had drips running down. Dirt in the corners of the floors. Over all, very dirty. Girls at the counter were nice.

"A good, inexpensive, hotel just away form the hustle of San Fran."
4 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 26, 2014

My family and I used this hotel for a trip into San Francisco. Overall, the hotel was in very good condition, having all the accommodations that one would need, including a nice "continental style" breakfast in the mornings, going til 9am on the weekdays and 10am on the weekends. There is a Denny's in the same parking lot as the hotel which makes it nice for a meal at anytime. The normal time for check-in is stated to be at 3pm, however we were very lucky. We decided to drive around 9pm on Saturday and after all the driving and a small hour and a half nap at a rest stop, arrived to the hotel at about 8 am. I went in to let them know that we were in town and that when ever the room was ready, that we were able to come back. The front desk employee took my information, and gave me the key cards for our room and let us know that our room was ready. Much to my delight, we quickly thanked the employee and ran to the room to get a better "nap" time to start our trip into the city. If you reserve online, there is a spot where you can leave notes, as well as a spot to leave your number so that they can text or email you when your room is ready if you are out. The hotel is near the airport, but away enough as not to be right next to it. It is just off the 101 fwy which makes it for a very easy in and out. I would think that the hotel is about 10 minutes away from the city which I love. I can go see the city, but not have to endure the crowd. We were only there over night on Sunday, however when we go back, we will defiantly go back to this hotel. It was the cheapest hotel in that area having including a breakfast meal, and FREE parking, which you pay for mostly as you get closer to the city hotels. HINT: If you are looking at hotels in or close to the downtown area, make sure to ask them about the parking specifically, cause a lot of the hotel sites will mention that parking has a cost but its either small print, hidden or barely mentioned, until you get to the hotel leaving you stuck with having to pay for it. HINT: For those that are traveling on the 101 freeway, there is a rest stop about 45-60 minutes south of San Francisco which is nicely remodeled, since that last time I was there before, having many vending machines with food, drinks, and amenities if you need it. That is where I took a short nap that was very well needed for our late night/early morning trip.

"Poor Choice"
2 of 5 stars Reviewed Jul 25, 2014
Robert H | Laveen
Hotel is a poor choice for the value received. Towels were so thin you could see through them. Noise travelled through walls and windows as if they weren't there. Old, outdated and dirty. Breakfast bar was dismal, few choices and was only open 3 hours per day. Overall, I would keep looking and not stay here. The price paid was way too expensive for the room.

The location was great for the things I had to do. And being able to bring my Yorkie made my trip easy for me. Great location close to airport however far enough away so that the noise did not bother me. When I came back late tired and hungry I was able to get a hot cup of soup next door and returned to my room and enjoyed my room.

"Old and outdated"

We stayed here one as part of the park and fly package. We picked La Quinta because we've stayed at other LQs and assumed the quality would be the same. It wasn't! The park and fly residents stay in the back hotel and it's so run down. The carpet was filthy and the bathroom just seemed unclean. No way was this worth the price, even with the included parking. And to top it off, the shuttle picks you up from back hotel but refused to drop us off there. They dropped us off at the front hotel with all of our luggage and we had to walk to get the car which was parked at the back hotel across the tracks.
