... dining halls, sick bay, control center, engine room and the mission debriefing room complete with the chairs as personified in Top Gun. We toured the seaworthy vessel for at least two hours. It was a big unit. San Diego was a short stop for us but the benchmark for the southern most point we'll make in our road trip. A well known city that gave you the feeling that you could get to know everyone in the town within a ...

We rapidly crossed the street in front of our hotel and went to the tourist mall where several ...

... Again not plain sailing. Our conundrum is how to settle a baby when the noisy (but trying to be quiet) toddler is less than a metre away and it's bright daylight. Nowhere for the boys to go and explore tonight in a car park. The iPad come in handy and we get Taya down. Dylan has had a really late nap today and isn't keen on settling quietly. Pretty testing, and we are looking forward to cracking this bit, and hopefully very soon. Looking forward to seeing more of San Diego ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn San Diego SeaWorld/Zoo Area

    Great Stay

    from

    Just returned from a stay at the La Quinta Inn in Mission Valley. It was me and my 2 teens in town for a tournament. I researched many hotels before selecting this one and I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel and grounds were very clean and our room was spacious. Parking was free. The furniture looked new and there was also a good sized fridge and microwave which was nice. The bathroom was upgraded and very clean. The whole place looked like it been recently stuccoed and painted. The pool/spa area, while small, was nicely tucked away at the end of the property against the hillside and was nicely landscaped. The location was perfect. Didn't hear any freeway noise. You could jump on the 8 and be anywhere you needed to be in San Diego. Shopping mall, restaurants and movie theatre right across the highway was a bonus. Breakfast was plentiful. We had a great stay and would not hesitate to stay there again. Check in very smooth.

    Close to everything, Great for Groups

    from

    We were part of a group of 24 kids and their families bowling on the Naval Base and in Kearny Mesa with the state tournament. This hotel offered great rates and is located right on the junction of the 163 and 8 freeways, making everything a quick drive.

    I HAD NO PROBLEMS !! CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE

    from

    WE stayed on a SAT. night.ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEMS!!Me and 2-12 yr. olds.I was a little concerned,because of what I read,but it was GREAT.I could see where it might be loud during the weekdays from the dealership though.The bed was COMFORTABLE!!!,I slept very well and im a light sleeper.THE STAFF WAS FRIENDLY and checkout was @12.The continental breakfast was pretty much wiped out @9:45AM(only complaint)THATS MINOR,I just had cereal.COVERED PARKING AND CLEAN POOL/SPA was great.The room was CLEAN,COMFORTABLE AND HAD A REFRIG.JUST WHAT WE NEEDED BEFORE OUR PADRE GAME.Nearby Resturants and a shopping mall/movie theater.FOR THOSE FROM OUT OF STATE.Just ask staff where to exit heading east.Great location for visitors, I think.You are close enough for a little drive to DOWNTOWN,but IF YOU WANT A VIEW/H2O go to ----.I have lived in CA. FOR 31 YRS.

    Not worth it

    from

    Located right next to car dealership (stayed three nights on business), the alarms and P.A. system next door was constant all evening - every hour - no sleeping done here. Room had electric problems, refrigerator only worked with light turned on at doorway, alarm clock ran, but the alarm and radio did not work (held together with tape. Hairdryer did not work (replaced by staff). Charged for newspaper not used. Don't go to hotels dot com for any of your reservations - they charge $40 more per room and they missed our reservations (the only guy with us that was not on a reseravation got his room for $99 we paid $129 - actual room rate $105). Breakfast was good, lots of variety. Would stay elsewhere due to no sleep given.

    Bad service, bad hotel

    from

    This hotel is so outdated - I asked the front desk agent how long it has been a Marriott? They said it was a Ramada previously. This hotel would not even be accepted by Ramada. The staff was unfriendly, and no breakfast items were stocked. The room was clean, but the staff was poor. I asked to see a manager and he would not come from his office to see me. Be aware of this hotel. Stay clear.

    Great staff

    from

    I stayed for the Fouth of July Weekend. The staff was wonderful. The General Manager Jason personally called my room to check on my stay. The hotel service made up for the outdated facilities. The hotel would not be a Marriott without the great staff!

    Good choice for San Diego

    from

    We stayed here with our 4 yr old son from June 5-9th in a King Suite. We thought it was a nice little hotel and loved that our son had a foldout couch bed in a separate room facing a TV with DVD player. The room was clean and the location was convenient to Sea World, Old Town San Diego, etc. The pool and hottub were never crowded and the breakfast buffet was standard - continental, but lots of choices.

    Horrible experience, Travellers BEWARE!

    from

    This was BY FAR, THE WORST hotel experience I've ever had. The rooms were old and run down. The pictures on the website were very deceptive, I was hard pressed to find any area of that complex renovated or upgraded. I was travelling on business and needed the elevator to transport a large amount of heavy items for a trade show. The elevator was broken shortly after we arrived. We were assured it would be fixed by the time we returned in the evening but it was not. By the second night we were so disapointed with the rooms, the broken elevator situation and the lack of parking spaces available at 10:30 pm that we went down the street to the Radisson for a wonderful nights stay. Travellers beware!

    Not a bad alternative to downtown San Diego hotels...

    from

    Our family stayed in this hotel during mid-March and except for its highway location, the property is actually clean and well-maintained, with some of the friendliest personnel I've encountered in any U.S.

    July 2003 visit

    from

    Typical small out-door pool. The carpet in our room needed cleaning and the standard room was cramped for 2 adults and 2 kids. Free breakfast was outstanding with many different choices (although a new toaster would be nice). Located in a separate room it was big, but it was packed every morning. A microwave in the lobby area would be nice; the microwave in the breakfast room is unavailable after breakfast. Front desk was very helpful, but housekeeping was disappointing, perhaps it was the language barrier. Convenient parking will be gone if you stay out too late, you will have to use the underground parking. Locate beside Hotel Circle, it was convenient to jump onto the freeway and be on you r way to local attractions quickly.
