This was a very nice stopping off place on our trip between Las Vegas and Napa, CA. We travel with 2 dogs, and La Quinta is always accommodating. This hotel is convenient to freeway, and has lots of grassy areas to walk dogs. The room itself was very nice. Comfortable bed, large table/desk area, clean and very nicely presented, and... More

My wife and I stayed at the La Quinta near the airport following a late evening arrival in Bakersfield. This was our entry point for a trip to Sequoia National Park. The La Quinta was a great choice for this one-night stand; large, well appointed room, friendly staff, quick check-in/out, and a good breakfast. That was all we were really... More

The LQ in northern Bakersfield is clean and has better overall facilities than most of the same price point. Breakfast is good, health center is great. Rooms are consistently clean. Front desk attendants are welcoming and knowledgeable.

Very nice motel with a clean, comfortable room and good customer service. Very close to airport and freeway. Excellent breakfast and pet friendly which is always important to us. I would not hesitate to stay here again if in the Bakersfield area.

Mike and Sarah, There was one thing that came to mind while I was reading your review was the air conditioning unit; the thermostat can be disabled to allow for full control on the AC unit in order operate on a much lower fan speed that would reduce the noise. However, this is through no fault of your own and... More

We frequently stay at La Quintas and have generally found them adequate. They are normally clean, well appointed and the hot breakfasts are quite good. Usually I would rate them as four circles, or very good. In this one, however, you can clearly hear the TVs in the rooms on both sides of you. It is better to hear the... More

The front desk staff were great. The room was great. The breakfast was great. The pool and spa had a bit too much chlorine. The drunken other guests, not so much. If you are going to party late, don't make everyone else suffer with your poor life choices.

My wife and I did the South West tour back in September starting from San Francisco, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite park and going east to Las Vegas. We planned a one night stay in Bakersfield on the leg Yosemite - Las Vegas. This hotel is perfectly located if traveling to Las Vegas. It has neighbouring restaurants just aside, Denny's and Starbucks.... More
