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

This property is relatively cheap and close to US 99 north. The problem is, it is cheap, dirty, old, noisy, and guest service representatives are rude. They act like you are doing them a favor. The outer door wouldn't lock and I had to put a chair in front of door to secure the room. Ladies of the evening were... More

Convenient and clean...in Bakersfield for a sporting tournament for weekend, so the location was convenient, right off the 99...affordable and continental breakfast was satisfying. Would definitely return!

Staff was pleasant enough, room was clean, but the hotel felt old and starting the long spiral downward. The kicker for us was the homeless camp in the parking lot. Mentioned to staff and said there was nothing they could do because they were on IHOP property, and Bakersfield PD would not respond to have them vacate the lot.

Pros: Very clean bed and bathroom Excellent air conditioner Nice staff Easy freeway access Cons: Weak breakfast Non-bed furniture seemed a bit stained It's hot in Bakersfield. For the money they're asking this is fine if you're passing through town and need a spot to rest your head.
