Obviously a pass through place, having said that, was impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of the reception staff member, the room was clean and large enough for two adults and two dogs. The area seemed ok, there was a hospital behind the Inn and a large area to walk the dogs.

This is an older motel with all rooms on the outside of the building. The internet is VERY slow, the breakfast is cold food only (unless you want to make a waffle). The bathrooms are very small and there are no amenities to speak of. The traffic noise from HWY 99 is disturbing at night. The price is great, and... More

We stayed in this motel three nights .We were there to see our relatives that live in Bakersfield. We have stayed at this motel before and knew about it. I booked it from La Quinta returns. We use La Quinta when ever we need a motel and they have one where we stay

Made a quick phone reservation and we tired when I arrived at about 10 PM. There was no reservation. I showed the text verification I received but the attitude seemed to be that the problem was my fault. They found me a "non Smoking" room that smelled like smoke and had cigarette burns in the carpet and on the bathtub.... More

I found it to be a very pleasant facility in close proximity to many good restaurants and points of interest, The room was clean and well appointed. There was a very nice area around the hotel to walk my dogs. All in all a very nice... More

I stayed here because it was less expensive than other Laquintas in the area. I love Laquinta because it is pet friendly and they don't charge you a ridiculous fee for your pet. This property was pretty much average for an older property. The pool area is beautifully landscaped.

I have stayed several times at this La Quinta. It seems to mostly be used by workman who are working in Bakersfield, but don't live there. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean, but the rooms are in DESPERATE need of repair/updating. I felt safe, although there are homeless in the area - I never felt uncomfortable parking...

We usually spend the night in Bakersfield on our way north to visit family. Our usual hotel is no longer pet friendly and we chose this property because of price and being pet friendly. The room was very clean, check-in was a breeze and staff was very helpful and friendly. We will choose this property again on our next trip... More

Have always stayed at LaQuinta but were very dissapointed with this room. The bathroom was clean and the nicest part of the room. The carpet was destroied by the front door and had bumps under it. The chair and bed had stains, the room had a very unclean feel.

As others have said, this is an older property, but nicely kept up, with very good beds and a wall-mounted thermostat system which works well. Staff and breakfast were fine. We'll happily stay here again.
