TripAdvisor Rating


Reasonable rates and a central location (a half-mile from the beach and a few miles from LEGOLAND) are two big pluses of this La Quinta property. Families will appreciate the heated outdoor pool, free parking and free breakfast. If you want to use the Coaster commuter train to visit Encinitas, Old Town San Diego and other areas, the closest stop is a five-minute walk away.

Excellent value

by senoritating

Most comfortable bed! Staff was always warm and helpful. There’s a hot tub, pool, simple gym, laundry and an outdoor fireplace. Great hot breakfast with waffles, eggs and some sort of protein, along with the usual continental options. Can’t beat all this at the price.

Good location, great room, kind of noisy

We thought the location was great, in that it was close to a shopping center for dinner and groceries, close to the freeway (I-5 and 78).
The breakfast was really good - eggs (scrambled & hard boiled), sausage, waffles, fruit, muffin type pastries, cereal, oatmeal, etc.
Wifi worked great.
Parking was plentiful.
The beds were pretty comfy.
The one room we had was great because it had a queen in one room and a bunk bed for the kids in an adjacent room. It also had 2 bathrooms. I also liked that there were lots of plugs on top of the tables to plug the electronics in and the clock radio had usb plug/connectors too. There was a microwave and decent sized frig too.
The room was not new, so a little worn.
The worst thing was the noise from the freeway. Definitely not a double pane window. And you can hear when the neighbors walk and use their faucets/toilets. Fortunately, we had good neighbors, but I think if you didn't have good neighbors it could make for a rough night.
I would definitely stay here again - I really loved the big breakfast and that the kids didn't have to share a bed.
