Overall the property was good and comfortable. Good breakfast. No fridge or microwave in room. Staff was very responsive to any issue. Close to CSU-Bakersfield, good dining and the airport. I'd go back if in Bakersfield again.

Definitely not up to par with other La Quintas we have stayed. Room needed work, not clean & not worth the $90 bill. Noisy from people on second floor above us. Room clock set wrong which we did not realized until we showed up at 9:00 for breakfast as the only staff on hand was taking it down. Although all... More

I've stayed in several La Quinta's before, but this has been the worse one. The front desk staff was pleasant but that's about the only thing that was a plus. The rooms were noisy and there were people loitering outside my door smoking and laughing at 2am. There was mold growing in the shower too. When I was walking my... More

I enjoyed my stay, the room was clean, breakfast was good, staff was friendly, and beds were very comfortable. I will definitely use La Quinta again when I go back to Bakersfield in October. You also cannot beat the rates for the quality that you get at La Quinta

We travel from southern Calif to northern Calif. every 3 months and usually stay at this hotel. The rooms are fairly clean and the staff is always friendly. It's in an older part of town but it's never been a problem. We travel with our pets as do many others that stay here but the rooms have never had a... More

This is a lower end La Quinta. It is an older property in a sketchy neighborhood. There were dead cockroaches on the walkway and a homeless individual in the elevator. The rooms are well maintained, so for a quick overnight stop it is comfortable enough. The breakfast was sub par. At 8 AM they were out of yogurt, the juice... More

The pool was not available due to repairs. We stayed at this hotel last year and was very upset that the pool was closed for repairs then too. They hotel staff should tell us that the pool is not available when we are making our reservation so we can choose another hotel.

We have enjoyed staying at La Quinta Inns. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. Enjoy having an iron and ironing board which I have used. The mattresses and pillows are very comfortable. We used the pool this time and it was very relaxing and comfortable temperature. Liked the ease of getting on and off the highway to continue to... More

En route home to Las Vegas with a serious case of siatica, we stopped (with our small dog) at this property. The clerk was more than helpful: seeing my condition that I was a (Korean War) veteran, he offered me a handicapped room. It was clean, had room for our puppy, was close to two restaurants. Next morning, the same... More
