Historical Traveller Reviews of Travelodge La Mesa Hotel

Very relaxing hotel!

from TravelingCouple37
Well before our weekend trip to San Diego, I did some research about this hotel. I found pictures that are honestly outdated. It looked like it would be a cheap hotel. The night before we left I was feeling a little nervous about how the hotel would be.
Once we got to the hotel we noticed that the outside was very clean. When I walked into the lobby I almost paused because I thought I was in the wrong hotel. It just didn't look like the pictures I saw online. The hotel has been very nicely renovated....I mean it was nice! We got there about two hrs before check in and I asked if we could get in earlier. They said they would try their hardest and call me when our room would be ready. Well, they called us about 40 mins later to let us know our room was ready. We were really pleased with that.
When we got into our room I couldn't believe my eyes again. It was just beautiful and comfortable for the price we paid ($84 a night). The room was really clean and big. We had a lot of room. We also had a kitchen-like sink and a fridge and microwave. The bed was big and comfortable. The bathroom was clean also. Not too big and not too small.
We also had a complimentary breakfast that was okay. It wasn't a breakfast with eggs and bacon. Only toast, bagels, cereal, pancakes, fruits, coffee...etc.
Overall, we were really pleased with the hotel. We honestly did not want to leave. We wanted to stay another night just at the hotel. The staff was really nice and the hotel was really quiet (although the walls could be a little more soundproof but it didn't bother us).
We are definitely planning on staying at this hotel again.
The only cons about it is that the attractions are all almost 20 mins away by car. The beach, Seaworld, and Balboa Park are all a 20 minute drive from the hotel.

What a Find!

Newly remodeled, clean, roomy, very pleasant hotel staff. Only 10 minutes from airport, Sea World, Downtown San Diego, Old Town. This is the perfect place for a quiet, reasonably priced stay in the San Diego Area. You can cross HWY 8 and pay almost double for a property of the same class. Try the Travelodge La Mesa while in San Diego next time. Upscale decor and proximity to Hillcrest are other pluses for this place.

Loved Travelodge

from gnickell
My stay at the La Mesa Travelodge was GREAT!!
The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to provide me with excellent service. We had arrived in La Mesa earlier than expected, which was a few hours before check in time. When I went to the hotel, they were very happy to let us check in early.

The lobby and rooms were very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good and satisifying.
I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone that asks me about my stay.
If I come to CA again I WILL only stay at this hotel.

Pleasantly Surprised

from Vexter1
Arrived a bit early - front desk was able to get us a room even thought we were early - nice!

Cons -
Hotel hallways feel a bit run down - some cracked tiles, probably could use a bit of paint and my doorframe was not closed in on our room - you could see light through it - no big deals - just noting it for the review. Floors/walls seemed a bit thin - sometimes a bit noisy. Breakfast area small and crowded. Parking a bit tight - not horrible, just be aware.

Pros -
Bed was comfy - room was clean - fridge in room - tv channels to choose from - internet access fast - helpful front desk - Ac cold - location to hwy 8.

I would not hesitate to stay here again by any means - there were a few things noted above - but certainly not deal breakers for myself and my wife. Rate was good and pros outweighed all cons. Not trying to sound picky - just noting both the good and the bad. We were quite surprised for a Travelodge - nice place -overall - don't expect flashy - but good solid hotel for the money no doubt.

Amazing For A Travleodge

from kaylaloree
I must say I have learned to trust tripadvisor and it has yet to let me down.

I was going down to San Diego with myself and two other friends (all girls) for the 2008 Comic Con. Most hotels for a decent price were all booked in San Diego and I chose La Mesa since it is right next door to San Diego.

The Travelodge is very convenient it is just a couple blocks away from the trolley station so you can hope on and go about anywhere in San Diego. From the moment we got there the front desk was nice and helpful. The place is really clean, it has just been remodeled and it showed. The room was spotless and very stylish for a "motel". We even had a few samples in the bathroom (the venus embrace razor and a small secret deodorant) as well as a welcome note from the manager. The room was massive for being two queens. And the breakfast in the morning was great, I was impressed with the selection of everything.

This place was amazing I would definitely stay again! I love the Travelodge.

A Lotta Room

from waslostnowfound
I rate this motel a 4 based on the management and the size of the room. I threw the management a huge curve by requesting a roll away bed two days before our arrival. The nice lady at the front desk made arrangements for us to have a larger room that could accomodate a roll away. What we found on our arrival was a room large enough to easily accomodate two roll aways! The room was especially advantageous because we stayed there a week, which gave the five of us ample room. The breakfast area can be crowded, the pool is small, and parking is tight; other than that a good, inexpensive place to stay near San Diego. I would stay there again!

Travel Lodge

from JayTR
We have just returned from a week at the Travel Lodge. The hotel is great and the staff is magnificent and we have never experienced such incredible staff before. The only down fall is the parking, small slots and not enough. If you come back late (after 11:00 pm) you might have to park on the side of the street, but I will say the staff moved our vehicle for us due to the street sweeper cleaning between 4:30 am and 6:30 am. When we got up our vehicle was parked right near the front door. The breakfest was good for the type, The elevator is slow so you might want to take the stairs if you don't have much to carry but over all I would stay their again and recommend it to friends and family. Great rooms, close to the highway and stores and great front desk staff during all shifts.

Pleasantly surprised !

from AbeIrvineCA
What a pleasant surprise! I needed to stay in the area for business and since I've learned to trust Tripadvisor for accurate hotel ratings and this place was rated high, I decided to stay there.
And for only a 1 Star hotel, (maybe because the price is so reasonable), it was great! Staff was very friendly and the room was plenty big and comfortable and clean (recently upgraded) with all the amenities. And to top it off they had an adequate hot & cold breakfast available included in the price.
The location wasn't great but it was fine and safe and even though I was on the street side I could barely hear any noise.

I would stay again for sure if I am any where near the area.

Great Hotel to enjoy

from thesafetyguy
I stayed in this hotel for over 7 months, from Sept 2007 to March 2008, due to the nature of my job. I had nothing but a great and excellent experience at this Travelodge. From the manager, Anal, to room service, I was treated with great importance and attention at all times.

The hotel had a very recent face lift with all rooms being completely decorated and furnished with new furniture, curtains, pillows, bedsheets, and comforters.
The lobby and entrance were also given a new and beautiful look.

All rooms are large and comfortable, and equiped with refrigerators, microwave oven, and kitchen sink. Bathrooms are serviced daily and supplied with plenty of towels, amenities, and equiped with wall mounted con-air hair blowers. Every room is supplied with iron and ironing board. Dry cleaning service is also available. The large table in the rooms is great for dinning and of course large enough for business and equiped with connections for your laptop.

The hotel features a daily continental breakfast that is second to none, with daily fresh fruits, cinnamon rolls, honey buns, hot and cold cereal, orange juice, milk, coffee, english muffins, bagels, white and wheat bread, and the king to top off the continental breakfast, " Belgium WAFFLES".

Conveniently located within walking distance to the hotel you will find all types of restuarants, from mexican to chinese buffet, and a Von's super market that is opened til mid-night, which is really more of a Super, Super Market, that would give any super Wal-mart a run for it's money.

I will highly recommend you stay at the Traveloge, in La Mesa, CA, 7911 University Ave., [--], when traveling in the San Diego and La Mesa area, and tell them, Ariel Resto from El Paso, TX sent you.

Travelodge La Mesa was Exceptional!!

from KarmaCA
The Travelodge La Mesa has out done its self in quality, service, & price. The rooms were very inviting & modern. Room decor with a 27' LCD & Pillowtop mattresses were also a pleasant surprise. Unfortunately, I did not have time to endulge in the property's attractive expanded breakfast.

I would recommend this property to everyone. However, the Travelodge sign is a little bit hard to see.

Top Local Tips for La Mesa

Greek cafe There's an authentic Greek cafe and bakery down the street a few blocks to the west on University Ave.

Tijuana Stay away from Tijuana! It's dirty, cheap and absolutely unattractive.

Lots to see This is a quaint little town -- no big malls, but plenty of smaller shops. There is a high speed shuttle right in the town. Nice downtown perfect for walking and browsing. Quiet nightlife. Not far from the beach. Very family friendly. Several nice parks.
