This is part of a series of blogs and coordinating DIS Unplugged: Disneyland Edition podcast segments focusing on the off-property establishments near the Disneyland Resort collectively known as Good Neighbor Hotels. This time, I take a look at La Quinta Inn & Suites located at 1752 South Clementine Street. I talk in detail about my stay there on the October 16, 2014 podcast, but continue below for pictures and information.
This La Quinta Inn & Suites has just finished a renovation. The final touches were being put on the office the weekend I was there.
I visited La Quinta Inn during a busy first weekend in October. With AAA discount I paid a very reasonable $109.80 per night for a 2-room suite with a King bed plus a sofa bed. The total with tax was $128.48 per night.
La Quinta Inn is located on the east side of Clementine Street just north of Katella, right behind the Anaheim GardenWalk. The walk is not too bad, but if you had young children I might suggest driving or taking the Anaheim Resort Transportation that picks up right next door.
Parking is free, but some of the spaces were pretty small and far from the elevator.
I booked a 2-room suite with a King Bed in one room and a sofa bed in the other room. There are several different combinations of bed arrangements available. The King Bed was comfortable, but not as plush as you would get at a higher end hotel. The sofa bed was comfortable as well.
The rooms have been newly renovated, so everything was in perfect condition. Everything was very bright apart from the dark furniture.
The “bedroom” contained a dresser that housed the refrigerator and microwave with a television on top. The “living room” had another small dresser with a television on top, plus a small desk.
On top of the desk was my favorite thing about the room…a charging station that included several regular power outlets, plus a couple USB outlets.
The only small issue I had was with the sliding door that separated the two area. It had come off of the track at the top, so sliding it closed was very cumbersome.
The bathroom was fairly standard, with the countertop and sink on the left side as you entered the room and the tub and toilet behind a door on the right.
While the bathroom was clean and new, the amenities and linens were pretty average.
The pool and hot tub at La Quinta Inn were on the ground floor at the far end of the parking lot.
I was very disappointed in the pool, which was not only very plain but was in a room that was mostly closed in and offered no natural sunlight.
WiFi was provided free of charge and I had no issues with it.
Breakfast was offered on the second floor and included fresh waffles, cereal, pastries, yogurt, fruit, toast, hard boiled eggs, juice, coffee and hot chocolate.
There are two rooms for seating, plus some seating outside on two small balconies.
I hope that you can use this information to help plan your vacation. Remember, this is based on a two-night stay in one room of the hotel. Be sure to check out the podcast for more detailed thoughts.
The rooms are very nice at La Quinta Inn & Suites, but the rest of the motel had very little to offer (apart from a moderate breakfast). However, since the location is slightly away from the heart of the resort, nightly rates can be quite competitive.
If you are looking for a nice, reasonably priced place to lay your head at the end of a busy day in the Parks, you or your travel agent might want to consider La Quinta Inn & Suites.
