I've always enjoy my stays with the La Quinta chain and, with the exception of an overly soft bed, this location was no exception. This motel does advertise a fitness centre but I prefer something better equipped. If you're like me and like to keep up with your fitness program while on the road there is a very well-equipped Chuze...

Not the best location but the staff was great and the place was clean. They also have a great free breakfast. Nothing within walking distance but you can get a lyft for cheap in San Diego. If you don't mind renting a car or taking a cab, this is a good place to stay

Dear Ms. Moore, Thank you for your wonderful review of the La Quinta Inn and Suites San Diego SeaWorld/Zoo Area. We take pride in the friendly team here.

As far as hotels in this price range ($89-$109) go, La Quinta is not bad. Took the family to San Diego tto visit Seaworld, and it was a 3-4 trip from where we lived. So we decided to get a hotel for 2 nights to make our Seaworld trip enjoyable and not feel rushed. The rooms were good, beds were...

YUCK! cockroach in room! Will never stay here again. Maintenance came with the bug spray covered with a towel so other guests could not see it. The front desk told me they usually don't have a bug problem, but now reading other reviews it appears it is a big problem.

I used my points to stay here and was very disappointed to learn I had to pay $8 per day to park my car at this location. Why? Although this property has an outstanding location, central to all of San Diego, it's certainly not a high end hotel that should charge their customers to park their vehicles. I'm an Elite...

Bathroom was outdated and needs maintenance. Pool was under maintenance during our weekend stay. Bed and room was nice, clean and quiet but conditions of the rooms needs updating. Breakfast options not as many as other LQ places. No bacon or sausages. NO FREE PARKING!

Wasn't the worst La Quinta of stayed in but wasn't the best. We saw small roaches every day. The breakfast room was not large enough to accommodate people in both buildings. We were at the end of the building and the Wi-Fi wasn't that great.

Great value especially for a city like San Diego. Convenient to medical faciiiities, shopping, and dining. Clean and very quiet!! I will use it again, and hope to try out the breakfast at that time. Room key did not work very well but after repeat effort it would finally open the door. 200 characters is too large a requirement.
