              Convenience of location

              Needs updating - stained towels & sheets

            • Family with children

              Price was good for the location. It was close to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Everything was clean and the staff was very friendly.

              The pool was too small for even two families to enjoy it comfortably. The breakfast was limited on choices. The treadmill in the gym area didn't work.

              The staff they were very help full. The hotel was over booked but the staff did a great job dealing with it.

              The staff was great and the hotel was very clean the beds were comfortable the breakfast was the best continental i have ever had and we stay a this level of hotel a lot for work. I would gladly stay in the hotel again and would recommed it to everyone.

              It was a decent hotel room for under $100 in California. Amazing!

              The breakfast was not very good.

              Easy access to the beach and freeway. On a quiet street, but close to food and shopping. We've stayed here twice and will again.

              Good value, but I won't be going back nor will I recommend to friends. The buliding and room are litle weird. And there was smell came from ac vent.

              Great staff and breakfast.

              Was not like Oceanside LaQUinta that I previously stayed at. Did not see the uniformity or live up to the brand I expected, which is why I chose it. No renovations, ripped sheets, loud ac, slow draining toilet and tub, outdated elevator & stairs literally waiting to break...

              The bed and pillows were so comfortable. I liked that there was a refrigerator and microwave in the room, that was a nice amenity.

              The air conditioning unit in the room was horrible. It made it uncomfortable to sleep well. It was nicer outside than in the room.

              The desk help was very polite and helpful. I'm sure if we had asked to be moved to a different room, they would have done it. I'm just convinced that any other room would have been better than what we were in. Also, the breakfast options were wonderful, and the staff was there to clean the whole time. Breakfast was great.

              See above. I will not be returning to this La Qunita--to many other options.

              easy access to the freeway to go anywhere we wanted to go

              lost power in our room and was more than 2 hours and was still not fixed so we just checkout and left. No offer from the La Quinta for not being able to relax in our room before we left.

              Location was close to where we planned to have weekend getaway with family. Room and beds were clean and neat. Easy check in and check out

              I needed a nice room that would accommodate my family for an overnight Soccer tournament. La Quinta inn met my budget and exceeded my expectations.

              The only complaint was that the breakfast area was a bit small, but I had no problem carrying my breakfast back to my room.
