Bakersfield has never been a stop-over choice in our travels, but we have stayed here in the past (never reviewed) and chose it again because it is quiet and convenient (though on our date of arrival, CAL-DOT had the off-ramp under repair so we had to detour a couple of miles). Staff was friendly and gave us a ground-floor room...

I travel with my to small dogs I was extremely happy when I checked in and found everyone greeted me with sincere greetings and were very helpful. Because I travel alone with my pets it's extremely important that I feel safe. During this stay I felt very comfortable and safe. I will definitely stay at this location when I'm in...

The room needed a good cleaning, but an upgrade would be better. Everything, including the desk clerk at check-in, seemed a little worn down. The location itself felt a little suspect as there were many homeless in the area, but at least they had a security guard patrolling the parking lot at night. The breakfast area was crammed into a...

La Quinta was quiet and clean and offered at a good price point factoring in the AAA discount. I especially appreciated there was no additional cost for my 20 pound dog. Most other hotels I have stayed at charge at least $10-30/for each dog per night. This is one of the very few inns that don't and is stated on...

I have stayed at this hotel many times but in the last two years or so it has gone way down hill. Last night there was literally no sleep to be had. Motorcycle reving loudly all night long. When we left at 3:30am ( might as well be driving-no one is sleeping), we notice the bike is parked on walkway...

I have been staying here off and on for business. The front desk employees are excellent. Sandra and Matthew are friendly and willing to go above and beyond their job title to make guests feel comfortable and at home. The rooms could be a little cleaner (i.e. scuffs on the walls, mold in the bath tub, stains on the sheets.)...

This is a modest, medium priced hotel close to the freeway. We booked through Expedia and got the room for about $6 less then going direct. We like La Quintas because they are pet friendly and there usually isn't an extra charge for a dog. The hotel next door was the same basic price plus another $20 pet fee. It...

Bad, very Bad. This property is poorly maintained and in a very dangerous and criminally active area of Bakersfield. I always stay with LaQuinta however I will never stay at or recommend this property again.
