Stayed at this location Jan. 2015. The rooms were clean even though they are a bit dated. We had the king room with bunks. Nice size room. Few things of note: You enter the room from the outside, the breakfast was located in a separate building so we had to walk to the elevator then go downstairs then cross over...

Hotel overall could use some updating, but the price was good. Parking was only $10.00 per night. The beds were good, and overall room was fine. The restroom was dirty, broken toilet seat and dirty shower curtain. Location was really good - easy access to the 8, 163, and 5. If you don't mind an older hotel that will have...

Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Pet friendly. Good location. Next to I-8, yet quiet. When we called for extra blankets, they were there within 5 minutes with them. Parking is a little tight, but manageable. I liked no carpet in rooms. Nice laminate type floor. Good for rooms with pets.

We spent 5 days here in December in town for a football game. The front desk staff was very friendly and gave us several suggestions for restaurants. The room was clean and everything worked as it should. We had breakfast there all but 1 morning. It was fine. I saw other reviews that complained about it, but we had no...

La Quinta Mission Valley is one of the best deals around. The pool is well heated. The jacuzzi is nice. The rooms are well maintained. The breakfast is a great deal. Nice to have refrigerator and microwave in the room. The beds are nice and comfortable.

we have stayed at La Quinta Inns from Texas to California and north from Washington to South Dakota and have never been disapointed. We always receive a warm welcome and a clean comfortable room. We always use La Quinta as our first choice as a place to stay

The hotel was clean and affordable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast area is grossly undersized for the crowds. Pretty much chaos at breakfast. I didn't like the selection offering on hard boiled as the only protein selection. The Internet service was unreliable and often couldn't not available. The rooms were often not cleaned until after returning late...

I can accept occasionally saw one or two but stay at the room 2 nights and told the maid about need pest control. We still saw 10 cockroaches running around at washroom. Also, the parking fee charge $8 per night, breakfast only waffle is hot, the rest are breads/muffins/bagles. No seat available as the place too small.
